About Me

My name is Chiara. 

If we haven’t met yet, my name is Chiara. I live between Zamboanga City, Philippines - and Rome, where I co-founded a vocal improvisation community called Circlesinging Roma that I run alongside colleagues Cristina D’Arcangelo and fellow co-founder Daphne Nisi. What I love is to support people to bridge the gap between their inner world and their outer world through creative expression in collaborative processes. I believe that using our voice and body to improvise in sound and movement and create music together is a balm for the soul, which is why I advocate so passionately for it. I am a teacher, community builder, vocal improviser, eternal learner and circlesinging facilitator with a BA in psychology from Stanford University and an ongoing education in Nonviolent Communication. I wear many hats, but these are the roles I carry forth that are inextricable from who I am as a person as well.

I offer facilitation, workshops and training in circlesinging and vocal improvisation.

I offer 1-on-1 sessions, mediation and group facilitation based on Nonviolent Communication.

I hope you can join me in an upcoming experience, soon.


With love,

Facilitation Reel

This reel is a collection of some past experiences that I have had the honor to take part in, or that I have led or co-led as facilitator.
