An Ecosystem of Authenticity
My name is Chiara Cortez.
I care very much about connection, communication and community. I wish for and am working towards a world in which everyone feels safe to express their authenticity, beginning with myself. I have studied, taught, and facilitated groups in circlesinging and vocal improvisation. I have been training in Nonviolent Communication, NVC mediation and I love facilitating groups and creating community. I write songs and sing. I have sung and written for the soundtracks of major Italian movies and television. I am very interested in artistic and musical expression as a vehicle for authenticity and collective paradigm shift. To most people, I am "Chiara" or "Ki". At present, I am also "Teacher Ki" to 10 kindergarteners who are under my care. I am a vocal improviser, songwriter, lyricist, teacher, group facilitator, and NVC mediator.
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 offer pronunciation coaching and lyric consultation for Italian singers and songwriters wishing to improve their song-related English skills.
