a 'playshop' for healing
a refuge for creativity
an effortless approach to songmaking
There is a songwriter in everyone.
SongSourcing helps remove internal barriers, allowing the inner songwriter
to be free to create.
former singer/songwriter, The Lettermen
I came away from SongSourcing with the joyful realization that at any moment,
at any time, there is a song inside us,
waiting to be shared.
I was completely delighted and surprised- mostly by the fact that I could do it, and by how it revealed hidden parts of my psyche. Engaging the singing voice in verbal free-association
makes this a wonderful
tool for self-exploration.
-Shivon Robinsong, Founder
Gettin' Higher Choir, Victoria, BC
SongSourcing gives me a daily practice I can do anytime, anywhere. With stunning simplicity it unlocks the intelligence of my own body, using my voice as healing medicine.

Forget your perfect offering.
At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, which is absolutely individual and unique, and yet which connects us to everything else. — George Leonard
Participants are guided past self-consciousness and self-judgment into what is, for many, a profound reconnection with self and opening to others.
In a SongSourcing workshop, beginners discover their voice, open their heart, and learn more about the gift of their own presence. Those already comfortable with their singing voice meet new creative possibilities.
Breakthroughs may be experienced, states of freedom and insight which may have otherwise taken years to achieve. Some say they overcome fears which had locked them down for ages; others feel a peaceful sense of coming home to themselves.

SongSourcing provides an incredible experience of letting the inside out
Entering the territory of the present moment, each one is supported in overcoming shyness, inhibition, and self-consciousness. SongSourcing also shines a compassionate light on hidden places, and invites more acceptance of one's self.
Join healing music artist, filmmaker and educator Michael Stillwater in this opportunity to leave behind your limitations and experience a deeper appreciation for yourself and others. A 'spiritual midwife' for people in transition, Michael is gifted at catalyzing supportive experiences for meeting oneself anew.
SongSourcing is an outgrowth of SongCare, Michael's private practice of intuitive songportraits, and is at the heart of his Song Sanctuary program. SongSourcing has been introduced in America and internationally in concert halls, churches, hospices, and private homes.
