Voice Teacher & Author
Jill Purce is a voice teacher who developed a new way of working with the voice, introducing group overtone chanting to produce a single note while amplifying vocal harmonics. Since the early 1970s she has taught internationally diverse forms of contemplative chant. Jill worked with German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, exploring the spiritual dimension of music, and learned overtone chanting in the Himalayas with the chant master of the Gyutö Tibetan Monastery. She has practiced Dzogchen since 1978, working with Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. In the last twenty years, she pioneered her workshop Healing the Family and Ancestors, a unique combination of family constellations, chant, and ceremony. Jill is author of The Mystic Spiral: Journey of the Soul, and her recordings include Overtone Chanting Meditations and The Healing Voice.
