S02E12 Jill Purce on Overtone Chanting and Ancestral Healing


Jill Purce pioneered the international sound healing movement in the 1970’s through her rediscovery of ancient vocal techniques, the teaching of overtone chanting, the power of group chant, and the spiritual potential of the voice as a magical instrument for healing and meditation.

She pioneered the practice of healing ancestral traumas with her Healing Family and Ancestor and Resonant Family Constellations, and activated the mandala as a living practice with her extended Mandala ceremonies.

She lectures and conducts workshops internationally, especially The Healing Voice, and has taught the English National Opera and The English Shakespeare Company, as well as teaching in hospitals, schools, monastic communities, and businesses. In the last 20 years she pioneered her workshops, Healing the Family and Ancestors, a unique combination of Family constellations, chant and ceremony.

Her recordings include Overtone Chanting Meditations and The Healing Voice. She lives in London with her husband, the biologist Rupert Sheldrake and their two sons: the biologist and author Merlin Sheldrake and the musician Cosmo Sheldrake.
