Northern California Women's Music Festival


 

Come Join Emma and SSOL Sisters at the Northern California Women's Music Festival! 

The Northern California Women's Music Festival began as an idea between like minded women who wanted to create a culture and community of sisterhood among the local area performers, artists, and musicians.

The goal of this festival is to connect our communities and to provide women a platform to network, and share common interests through business and the fine arts.  This year, Emma will be performing a set of her music and teaching a SSOL introductory workshop.  We encourage you to come for the entire festival and participate in this amazing community of women artists.

About the SSOL workshop:

“Claim feminine power onstage so you can stop your self-doubt and sabotage and impact the world with your music and message”

Are you a woman singer, songwriter, musician or performer experiencing doubt, fear or resignation around taking the next step?Have you had to deny your feminine self and rely only on your masculine side to get heard in the music world?

Are you turned off by the patriarchal, aggressive vibe of the music industry and sick of feeling like you’re not good enough or you have to prove yourself?

Do you know you have a voice - something to offer the world through music - but shy away from calling yourself “a singer” or “a musician” or when you do say it, you feel like a fraud?

This workshop will focus on one feminine value and energetic wisdom quality - that of receiving.  Through a powerful group exercise, Emma will help you discover how to connect more deeply with your audience and dissolve the barriers holding you back so you can feel more power in expressing your true voice.  Emma will walk you through a non-linear, feminine pathway to help you identify where you are blocked in fully owning that your voice is necessary so you can make the impact you long to make with your music.  She will help you discover what to focus on to develop your authentic creative voice and own your stage so you can stop self-sabotaging and live your musical dream.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn why we, as women, often struggle to feel powerful onstage and how to claim our right to be seen and heard!
  • Learn why denying or undervaluing your feminine self is a huge barrier to being empowered in your expression and could be what’s keeping you from fulfilling on your music goals.
  • Learn a powerful technique you can use again and again to connect more deeply with your audience, dissolve any stage fright and own the stage you were born for.
  • Discover a non-linear feminine pathway to help you identify where you are stopped in fulfilling on your music goals and what to do to move forward.
