The Sacred Feminine and Peace
Chloë Goodchild is an international singer and innovatory educator. Her pioneering voice work gave birth to The Naked Voice in 1990, and its Charitable Foundation (2004). This groundbreaking work has brought the universal power of voice and sound, as an essential listening tool and catalyst for conscious communication, accessible to everyone, from our children to our world leaders. Deafness in childhood catalysed Chloë’s discovery of inner sound and silence. This deep encounter with her inner self, catalysed a life time’s experiential research of the voice as one of humanity’s most untapped resources for personal and global evolution and transformation.
Chloë studied Music, English and Education at Cambridge and Norwich universities (1972 – 76) where she graduated as a music and English teacher with a Bachelor Hons degree. From the late 70′s Chloe evolved her own East-West vocal research, influenced by travels through Africa, India, the Middle East, Europe, USA and Canada. Chloe’s visionary sound research has inspired national and international mediation initiatives, with international policy-makers and within indigenous communities such as the Blackfeet Medicine elders, as well as with the terminally ill, exploring the healing properties of sound for the benefit of individual and collective self-discovery and conflict-resolution. Chloe has facilitated 1000’s of individuals and communities worldwide, to discover their authentic vocal sound through indepth self-inquiry and courageous communication. The Naked Voice practices transform separateness and fear into creative expression for the benefit of caring, compassionate relationships.
Chloe has authored several books, notably her consummate book The Naked Voice, Transform Your Life through the Power of Sound (North Atlantic Books 2015) and her autobiographical Memoir, The Naked Voice, A Singer's Journey to the Spirit of Sound (Rider Books 1993).
