☀️ Cameron Altaras was raised Mennonite in Ontario, Canada and her mother was an Amish escapee. Childhood sexual abuse by her teenage uncle set her on a path of further abuse, including at the hands of a highly revered, now deceased Mennonite pastor, Vernon Leis. ☀️
She went through the Mennonite Conference of Eastern Canada (MCEC) leadership’s clergy misconduct process regarding this “Mennonite Harvey Weinstein” under whose grooming process she fell victim in her twenties. She gathered a supportive group of family, friends, and former MCEC leaders around her and together, they plodded through six years of tough challenges before the MCEC finally publicized the crimes. ☀️
Cameron holds a PhD in Religion from the University of Toronto. Her dissertation focussed on the critical theory of the Frankfurt School with regard to the ideological manipulation of power in religion and art. Before her retirement, she worked in Business Ethics. You can find out more about her at www.TorahBontrager.com/book, where there’s a link to the speech she delivered at the 2015 Annual SNAP Conference in Washington, DC: “Sex with a Pastor Is Never an Affair”.

In the Hawaiian tradition of singing, the timbral shift between heavy mechanism and falsetto is emphasized in a shift called haʻi, or  break. Poʻokela Wood (@pmwood_ ) demonstrates a sustainable approach to the haʻi, based on an adjustment of aperture and air flow. #sustainablesinging #vocology #rmvoicestudio #pookelawood #hawaiianmusic #leokiʻekiʻe #embraceyourvoice
You can never please everybody.  No matter how hard you may try.  It will only drive you crazy.

No matter how hard you work, for some people, your effort will never be enough. Accept the fact that some people make it their mission to criticize, undermine, and judge others.

They don’t walk in your shoes, they weren’t with you every step you took that brought you where you are today.  They didn’t see your struggles, they never saw your tears, and they never heard your cries. They don’t feel your pain, they don’t know your story, and they can’t read your mind.

You can’t please everybody.  So don’t be so hard on yourself for trying. The earlier you accept this fact, the happier your life will be. .

Each of us has a voice that is uniquely our own. That voice lives in our hearts and its wisdom is only for us. The heart’s voice doesn’t yell to get your attention. It whispers through your intuition. Your voice doesn’t guilt trip or shame you. Instead, it serves as your personal compass, ever directing you towards your north star and the answers you seek. 
If you are ready to listen to your heart’s wisdom, join me in September for EMBRACE YOUR VOICE, an intimate, experiential retreat for women who long to create the life they came here to live. We will gather in sacred space to unlock the wisdom of our hearts. If you’ve been wanting to work with me, this is a great opportunity.

66/100 ::I am not to blame:: One of my heaviest burdens has been carrying the internalized shame from my abuse. I was taught my suffering was from circumstances I created, because I was inferior I deserved to be hurt. I believed deeply I could never be good enough to be loved. A child, I could not fathom being exploited by people who were supposed to love me. I had to agree to blame myself. I could not afford to see what they are.
.
Shame is a plague, a disease in my body, a chain wrapped around my heart and limbs contorting my soul. He pulled those chains, directed my reality, made my broken being writhe to his whim; he fed me answers to questions, explanations for my suffering, stories of his victimization. He buried me in all the shame he didn’t want to feel. I took his lies on as the state of my life. He wanted me poisoned with blame—it was killing me and he didn’t care: it kept me silent.
.
The starving feeling—undeserving of love, deserving of pain—colored every interaction and moment; I was constantly making myself available to be undervalued, run over, diminished. I was born into scarcity, it’s the only way I understood the world.
.
Shame collects in our corners, it inhibits the full stretch of our body, it bends our growth. It comes to light in a hunched posture, lowered head, a turn away, a low voice, fear of eye contact.
.
I am not to blame.
I know it in my bones.
This freedom has deeply shifted me, from my depths to the way my body moves through space. I could never have imagined this transformation possible from healing. My voice has found new volume and intonation, my shoulders back, my heart precedes me.
.
Sometimes I don’t recognize myself—the disorientation can signal fear—but I know better. I remind myself this is who I really am, who I always was, I’m embodying who I am meant to be: it’s what I look like free of chains. It’s how easy movement is in the absence of abuse. It’s lifting my face to the light.
.
There is nothing to fear, my strength is what’s real—my strength is all I’ve ever known—now I’m free to enjoy it.
.
I was imprisoned on a sky-less horizon.
Now I can be seen.
I can stand in the sun.
I have nothing to hide.

The goal of any effective voice lesson is to help the Professional Voice User utilize their voice in the most efficient, consistent, and sustainable way possible. By focusing on function, rather than the aesthetic, we are able to produce a sound that is healthy without compromising the individuality and authenticity of the voice. Here’s @shanekainoa covering Mariah Carey’s “Dream lover”, applying these concepts to his vast catalogue of gig repertoire. #sustainablesinging #vocology #rmvoicestudio #shanekainoa #embraceyourvoice

The 26-year-old activist is fundamentally changing how the American criminal justice system approaches sexual violence and the survivors of those crimes. In 2014 ― at the age of 23 ― Nguyen founded Rise, a national civil rights nonprofit that focuses on protecting the liberties of sexual assault victims. A few years later, she created the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, legislation that afforded basic civil rights to victims when they first report being raped and during the medical and legal ordeals that follow. 
Last month, Nguyen was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for her tireless work. “I was overwhelmed with shock, happiness, and pride,” Nguyen told HuffPost in an email, recalling the moment she found out about her nomination. “Because I knew that this nomination was not just for me, it was for the millions of survivors that have seen their civil rights penned into law.” Through it all, Nguyen said she’s sustained by the millions of survivors Rise and the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights have helped along the way. “Nothing keeps me going as much as the knowledge that we have impacted the lives of 32 million survivors nationwide, and that that is just the start,” she said. “I look at it as a metaphor ― every time a survivor tells me his or her story it is like they are handing over a coal. It is a weight I carry but also it keeps my fire to fight alive.” #StandWithRAINN #survivorstories #childsexualabuse #recovery #metoo #youarenotalone #webelieveyou

☀️ Cameron Altaras was raised Mennonite in Ontario, Canada and her mother was an Amish escapee. Childhood sexual abuse by her teenage uncle set her on a path of further abuse, including at the hands of a highly revered, now deceased Mennonite pastor, Vernon Leis. ☀️
She went through the Mennonite Conference of Eastern Canada (MCEC) leadership’s clergy misconduct process regarding this “Mennonite Harvey Weinstein” under whose grooming process she fell victim in her twenties. She gathered a supportive group of family, friends, and former MCEC leaders around her and together, they plodded through six years of tough challenges before the MCEC finally publicized the crimes. ☀️
Cameron holds a PhD in Religion from the University of Toronto. Her dissertation focussed on the critical theory of the Frankfurt School with regard to the ideological manipulation of power in religion and art. Before her retirement, she worked in Business Ethics. You can find out more about her at www.TorahBontrager.com/book, where there’s a link to the speech she delivered at the 2015 Annual SNAP Conference in Washington, DC: “Sex with a Pastor Is Never an Affair”.

This life is not a dress rehearsal. As far as any of us know for sure, this is the only one we get. And if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that this life goes by really fast. 
Are you investing your time and energy the way you want to? Are you creating the life you know you came here to live?  If not, when are you going to start? 
I remember asking myself that question and realizing that if I didn’t change things up right away, I’d spend my time lusting after a life I longed for but wasn’t willing to create.  I was scared. I didn’t know how to speak my truthI was terrified to start moving towards the dreams I had never spoken aloud because of what “everyone might think.” Gratefully, with lots of support and hard work, I was able to move through those fears and today am living a life I love. 
If you are ready to change things up and start creating the life you long for, check out EMBRACE YOUR VOICE, an intimate, 3-day retreat for women who are ready to use the time they’ve been given to create the life they long for. Space is limited and the early bird discount ends on August 8.

San Diego Union-Tribune 
Raymond Firth, 39, was sentenced Monday to three years and eight months in prison. He pleaded guilty March 19 to two counts of sexual battery and one count of false imprisonment, all felonies. The charges relate to three young victims in his third-grade classrooms during the 2006-07 and 2007-08 school years. 
Firth will have to register as a sex offender for life. Had he been convicted of all the charges he faced originally, he could have been sentenced to up to 18 years in prison. 
Vista Superior Court Judge Daniel Goldstein said during the hearing that he approved of the deal struck between the attorneys in the case because it meant Firth would go to prison without requiring the victims to testify at trial. “You violated such a precious position of trust that a teacher has with students,” Goldstein said, adding that Firth’s actions will likely cause his victims to question their self-worth for the rest of their lives.

☀️ Cameron Altaras was raised Mennonite in Ontario, Canada and her mother was an Amish escapee. Childhood sexual abuse by her teenage uncle set her on a path of further abuse, including at the hands of a highly revered, now deceased Mennonite pastor, Vernon Leis. ☀️
She went through the Mennonite Conference of Eastern Canada (MCEC) leadership’s clergy misconduct process regarding this “Mennonite Harvey Weinstein” under whose grooming process she fell victim in her twenties. She gathered a supportive group of family, friends, and former MCEC leaders around her and together, they plodded through six years of tough challenges before the MCEC finally publicized the crimes. ☀️
Cameron holds a PhD in Religion from the University of Toronto. Her dissertation focussed on the critical theory of the Frankfurt School with regard to the ideological manipulation of power in religion and art. Before her retirement, she worked in Business Ethics.

I started filming my practice times so I can hear myself (ugh) and look for bad habits (like cringing 🤗) as I figure out this whole belting thing. Trryyinngggg so hard to embrace this journey and be patient. Today this guy started playing a GORGEOUS piano piece in the room next to me and it really caught me off guard (as did my crack 🤗). So I went with it.
