Mark your calendars to join us in the conversation!
What an experience… Well beyond what I had envisioned with this episode. We were shooting at a studio with equipment far exceeding my flipcam and tripod, not to mention a professional behind the equipment in Michael Wisnieux of Wiznu Studios. Thank you Michael! You created a warm and inviting space for this rookie talk show host!
When I was approached to do a web series nearly 18 months ago, I had no idea what any of this meant. My role had always been behind the scenes. The background. Happy to play an anonymous role. Imagine the challenge to take a small camera and tripod, go on location and film a conversation. However, it didn’t take me long to settle in to the role… the camera is so small, I don’t really notice it much.
That being said. This show was shot much differently and it provided me with great personal growth.
Dr. Ray, proved to be the perfect guest and the opportunity he provided was one that I’ll not so easily forget. When the shoot began at Wiznu Studios, I had a difficult start. The camera loomed large and I’m not sure whether it was the professional setup or the fact that I wasn’t in control. “LAUGHING” Probably a combination of both.
Sensing my obvious discomfort fumbling the opening of the show… Dr. Ray stopped the shoot and took me through an exercise to presence myself. These things I know and practice often, however… I was nervous and with help from Dr. Ray, I was able to settle into the fabulous conversation. It didn’t take long for me to get comfortable with Michael, behind the camera and the conversation of ‘Passionate and Mindful Living’ with Dr. Ray. What a powerful experience and a breakthrough moment for me.
Dr. Ray’s succinct way of sharing his understanding of passionate and mindful living, reminded me of what I had stepped away from and he helped to reinforce ways of living life with this intention. There is something profound in experiencing… even for a moment… what it feels like to live a passionate and mindful life. Time does not exist. It stands still for as long as you allow yourself to BE… In the moment.
Thank you Dr. Ray, for sharing your authentic, down to earth spirit.

The topic of ‘Finding Your Voice’ holds a huge significance for me… this is perhaps the reason for pursuing the likes of Dot Todman. Dot is truly an Empowering and Inspirational Coach, as I discovered in having her on the show.
For me personally, I had an epiphany regarding my own voice – un-empowered. It wasn’t until my early 30′s that I even had an inkling that I hadn’t been speaking my truth. Hiding behind the family that I was born into… filled with fabulous singers and strong personalities – effective communicators, I denied myself of expression. Choosing, instead to declare that I was meant to live ‘behind the scenes’… Afraid of my own voice.
Well, obviously – I was able to move through this with years of inner work and guidance from many Spiritual Teachers. Knowing that I was not unique in the challenge of discovering my VOICE – it was my intention to share what’s possible when we are Vocally Empowered and how this empowerment transforms lives on so many levels.
Dot’s C.O.R.E. Vocal Power Technique, as she shared with us, is just that tool to provide self-discovery in empowered expression. Thank you Dot! It was a great honor to sit down with you and have you share your work (love) and talent with us.
As promised here are Dot’s Links and Information about her upcoming Workshop in March!

On location at Dot’s Voice Studio... Selina recently sat down with Dot Todman – Celebrity Vocal Empowerment Coach to discuss the idea of ‘Finding Your Voice’.
Dot shares the technique she developed called C.O.R.E. Vocal Power® and explains how she works with her students to take them beyond traditional vocal exercises and techniques and help them discover their own self-empowered expression, as well as addressing their personal vocal needs.
‘Selina Ray Show’ – Season 2 Episode 2: ‘Finding Your Voice’ with Dot Todman – Celebrity Vocal Empowerment Coach
PREMIERING TONIGHT! Tuesday, February 7th @ 7PM (PT)
What’s next for the show’s 2nd Episode?
When deciding on my guest for February, I reached way back to a time when I consciously embarked on my Spiritual Journey. One of my “Teachers” at the time, spoke of the importance of ‘finding your voice’. I didn’t quite understand what that meant or how to actually do it and it took me some time to realize that our ‘voice’ is our individual soul expression. For me, it would have been wonderful to have discovered someone who really understood the Mind – Soul – Voice Connection.
I recently found this “someone” through a Facebook friend who ‘sang’ her praises!

Enjoy this wonderful Poem on ‘Finding Your Voice’ by Mary Oliver
The Journey by Mary Oliver
One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
their bad advice –
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do –
determined to save
the only life you could save.
