JILL PURCE pioneered the international sound healing movement through her rediscovery of ancient vocal techniques, the power of group chant, and the spiritual potential of the voice as a magical instrument for healing and meditation, and introduced Overtone Chanting and other Healing Voice Workshops into Europe, North America and Japan.
Through her workshops, Inner Sound and Voice; The Healing Voice; Re-enchanting the World; Ritual Resonance – Healing The Family; and Ritual Resonance – Healing The Ancestors she has taught internationally for thirty years, teaching diverse forms of sacred chant, and especially Mongolian overtone chanting.
She is the author of “The Mystic Spiral: Journey of the Soul” (Thames and Hudson, 1974) a book about the spiral and the evolution of consciousness in spiritual traditions, art and psychology, as well as numerous articles.
