Spirit through Sound - an exhilarting exploration June 14 2010
By S. Mitter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Stewart Pearce's The Alchemy of Voice is the most extraordinary introduction to the world of Spirit through the medium of sound.

Most spiritual seekers are introduced to Spirit through light. We learn about the chakras and the aura in terms of their colours; spiritual teachers talk about healing in terms of bringing in the "light". What distinguishes Pearce's book is that it shows us how we can access the higher realms of Spirit through sound. As well he might! As he points out in the very first chapter, "In the beginning was the Word!"

There are two features of the book that make it such a wonderful read. First, it has the right balance between theory and practice. The theory is illuminating, at once simple and profound. The exercises are easy to follow. Together they make for a most thrilling exploration of the unseen world of energies and vibrations.

Secondly, it is written beautifully! Pearce is a very gifted writer who is able to combine lucidity with stylistic virtuosity in a manner that is quite rare.

This is a very valuable book from one of the world's leading authorities on the subject. A must-read!

Absolutely Brilliant May 30 2010
By Chakardjian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have always been fascinated with what underpins a great voice - what makes some so luring, attractive, engaging, and magnetic?
Basically... I wanted one.
As I navigated my way through Stewart's book, I felt a sense of coming home. As sense that at some point I knew this wisdom to be true and I was re-membering it. Finally a book that puts all the pieces together, how to combine the "being" and "doing" aspects of myself, through my most creative instrument, my voice, using my signature note to express my whole being in sound, and in doing so enjoying the fruits that come from speaking directly though my heart. If your appetite is poetic, Stewart carries you with his inspired metaphors and stirring stories. If you seek a more functional explanation, he explains it with such ease that you'll be wanting to use your voice right away to transform and enrich your life.

I now see and use my voice as my guide, a true reflection of where I am in my alchemic journey, and a tool to create the life I love both in my business and my personal life

Targeted to those in voice performance arts, light on the mysticism and alchemy June 24 2011
By MysticJaguar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The forward and first chapter of this book are a powerhouse of insight and information. Stewart does a great job providing a solid orientation to sound and voice that makes the reader yearn for more. In chapters 2 and 3 (The Voice Mask and Breath as Creator) the inspiration begins tapering down as this is definitely throttling back from a book on alchemy to become a self-help book that would be most helpful to actors, singers, and orators in general. By chapter four the alchemy is primarily in the wings while self-help takes center stage. Mind you this is fine and the book will delight those who are oralicians, however for those interested in alchemy and mysticism there are scant nuggets to be searched for once you hit chapter 6 (Sound Healing).

This book will be most meaningful to those who are either voice-profession oriented or relatively new to the spiritual, alchemical, and mystical paths. The author clearly knows more than he is getting onto in this book which does leave the more advanced reader somewhat disappointed. The case studies are generally a distraction. The Epilogue (The Voice In The Fire) has some very interesting content. So even if you feel in the doldrums in the middle of the book either keep pressing or skip to the Epilogue to ensure you get what this book has to offer.

Of particular disappointment was the lack of a bibliography at the end of this book. There were many very fine sources of information the author has cited including the Sufi mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan and the Tiwa mystic Joseph Rael. This lack of additional sources to look too was particularly blarring and the editor/publisher should be asked what were they thinking? Bibliography is frequently how you follow the trail from one book of interest to others. Without a bibliography you are presented a dead end.

There are frequent references to lines from Shakespeare which clearly frame this book in the context of the authors training being as a voice coach in the theatre (darling). There are enough of these references to tend to alienate English speakers from outside her Majesty's domain such as Americans.

So, this book is of value to those new to the metaphysical path, even those on the path for a number of years. Consider it an introduction to the major aspects of sound and a framework for further exploration. However, the more advanced aspirant will have already found most of this framework, and lacking a bibliography, will not be able to utilize this work as the kind of springboard for future exploration that it would have, nay Yorick, should have been.

If after having read this book you are indeed looking for deeper alchemical and mystical approaches to sound then you better get your birthday or Xmas list together with these juicy items here in this mini-bibliography:

- Shabda: Mantra Mysticism
- Sound: Native Teachings and Visionary Art of Joseph Rael
- Being and Vibration
- Ceremonies of the Living Spirit
- The Mysticism of Sound and Music (Shambhala Dragon Editions)

Your voice: your personal key signature Feb. 29 2012
By Dr Ana Garcia PhD, DTM - Author, Public Speaking Coach. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After finishing writing my book on public speaking, I realized that I needed to shift myself to the next level. I found that this book gave me exactly the training I needed in terms of tunning into my personal sound and the power of resonance to reach people when you talk from the (sound chamber of) the heart. I practiced with a few clients and the effects were so powerful that I realized the importance of breathing and oxygen to bring up the awareness of a blocked emotion, thought or a lost memory. I myself lowered my voice a notch over a period of time and became very conscious of breathing when I speak, and felt that I found a long-lost friend: myself!
