You are courageous
and you are not alone…
The internet is usually a place of pretend, of make-believe.
People are often hard with one another, lacking real empathy and connection.
Yet this is something most of us deeply long for.
Our society does not favor people "on the healing journey".
You get easily categorized as being off with the fairies.
Family members would rather keep you the way they know you (even if you are unhappy) than see you change radically.
You can come across as threatening to colleagues simply by having more self-love and healthy boundaries.
Sometimes you even have to switch careers completely at an age where others are already thinking of retirement.
Your partner either grows with you or you're feeling a distance creeping between the two of you.
You long for true love and connection.
You wish to be understood and seen as what you truly are.
It takes immeasurable courage…
…to face your childhood wounds.
…to resolve generational trauma in your family system, influencing your life.
…to forgive yourself.
…to love your body and move with the dance of life.
…to liberate your voice and sound with the song of life.
Yet, for some reason, you are doing it!
You have the guts to face it all, to go through the fire!
It's not easy.
And sometimes we want to quit the process work, pause the healing.
We can't. It's part of our life path now.
Yet, you don't have to go through it alone!
There are people - all over the world - who are as motivated on the healing journey as yourself.
This is why we started this community.
To offer tailored tools for healing in a space of togetherness.
We are Jacob & Upala, and we welcome you to Songdance CiRCLE.

What is the CiRCLE?
Songdance CiRCLE is an online community for souls on the journey.
We use grounded and proven healing modalities that help our participants grow in all areas of their life.
We offer 'Songdance Moments' where you join us live in the power of presence.
During these moments we make use of a range of 'healing modalities' including live music, vocal sound and movement.
Next to these live moments, there is also plenty of 'self-paced' content to experience.
There are movement flows, meditations, audio stories, mantras, live teachings and deep and extensive courses (see 'Bonus' section below).
Our community members are from all over the world.
This creates a richness and cultural diversity.
Through our healing journey, we are all connected.

This has reawakened my creativity. It's uplifting, surprising and transformative!
SUE H. - Australia
Songdance has reawakened my creativity. I have rediscovered my love of singing, the joy of movement, and a big bonus has been the warm community members. It has been magical being part of live events where Jacob responds to the conversations and creates new mantras and music. Uplifting, surprising and transformative!

Weekly live 60-min
Each week, we hold a 60-minute live Songdance Moment where we come together in the power of presence, creative expression and sharing.
A place to honestly be yourself and to deeply connect with other community members.
We create live music and mantras and give teachings to support the needs of the participants in that given moment.
Each Songdance Moment is a unique experience and completely different from the next. It's always a surprise what will happen.

To speak your truth and stand your ground
To live according to your highest potential

Every moment of my life will forever have an imprint of the gifts I have discovered…
Deanna L. - USA
I don't know how I could ever share my gratitude accurately. Every moment of my life will forever have an imprint of the gifts I have discovered through this work. I will continue to share the love and acceptance I have received with others on my path, for it's the only way I know to truly thank you. And I don't think I could avoid it if I tried. I have an ineffable amount of love for you all!
You can talk about healing…
Listen to other people's ideas about it…
Wish for it, long for it…
But, it will only happen
when you dive into the experience yourself
“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: "When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?”
The stored grief and fear was moving out with each sound vibration…
Cheryl P. - USA
Thank you for this beautiful offering!
Mantra singing has become a vital path in finding my way back to my true self. My Voice had been silenced for decades…
This morning, as I engaged with the class, I sobbed and sobbed. I allowed myself to surrender into the sound vibrations of my own voice. The fear of being told to shut up, the grief stored in the body, was moving OUT through each sound and vibration.
Meet the community founders
Jacob & Upala
Allow us to introduce ourselves
We are Jacob & Upala
Husband & wife
Two souls on
A couple of years ago, Upala was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor. Statistically, her days were numbered.
As the tumor was severely impairing her ability to speak, we reverted to what was still possible for Upala. And that was free sound making. We called it authentic singing.
We found it such an amazing and powerful way to bring emotional liberation.
To communicate feeling states in an instant and holistic way, as opposed to our usual linear way of communicating, limited by words.
Having looked death in the eye, we suddenly saw things very clearly.
Upala said that if she had only one year left to live, she wanted to travel and spread the power of authentic singing with the world.
We made a radical choice.
To open ourselves up for every truth.
And to live life according to ours.
An ever-changing truth resulting in an ever-changing life.
We started Songdance as a natural response to our own longing for authenticity, freedom, joy and expression. Everything we do here flows from our own journey of healing and growth.
I've learned to sing my song and express my unique vibration.
LORENZ B. - ICELAND
To be part of a community hasn't always been easy for me. And this is a great practice and stepping stone where an open space is created to be myself. I've learned about my voice, emotions and deepest core of my being from so many different sides. I'm learning to sing my song to express my unique vibration. So helpful and important for me in life.
Thank you, Jacob and Upala for creating this beauty and all others out there for doing the same.

I have spent a lot of energy and money before, but this calm and friendly approach is what I really needed.
Lena F. - USA
I am so grateful for this work. I've had chronic pain for years and have spent A LOT of time, energy and money trying to find something to help it, with no avail. Since starting this calm and friendly approach, my pain is gone. The practices are simple and beautiful, and so kind and respectful to the body. I was super resistant to this approach at first, and now I am the biggest fan.
