Songs for Healing & Creating Community
The Singing In Sacred Circle event is an opportunity to look into your sister’s eyes and share voice and spirit through song. While learning short, repetitive women-centered and earth-based songs from a variety of traditions, (Goddess, Native American, Buddhist…) power rises from the center of the circle as all voices create an energy that is empowering, loving, healing and transformative. This opportunity is intended to allow women, regardless of singing experience, to share their spiritvoices in a noncompetitive, relaxed safe space. Come sing along! Percussion instruments are welcome!
In addition, each woman will have the opportunity to listen to the sacred sounds of her soul. Participants will be encouraged to spend time reflecting upon the role of healing sounds/songs/chants that have shaped or influenced their personal journeys.
