Singing in Love
EVENT IS SOLD OUT
Singing In Love is a ceremonial song gathering where we come together in community to sing, pray and connect from and with our hearts. There will be facilitated song circles, community meals, ceremonial events, night time song circles around fires, a tea temple, kids area & much more! Join us for a special weekend of creating magic through vibration.
What is a Song Circle?
In a song circle, we learn easy-to-memorize songs that we sing as a group. And guess what..? You don’t have to be an experienced singer at all! It is so empowering to sing beyond what society deems a “good singer”. This is a safe space to practice opening our voices in a non-judgmental, supportive and loving group container, while singing songs that remind us of our power, truth and belonging.
There is a vast variety of song circle types; some contain numerous harmonies, multiple parts, and even fun activities that go along with them! Others include improvisation, vocal opening, circle singing and much more. Many circles have themes such as the elements, personal empowerment, spiritual upliftment, grief, and so on.
Daytime song circles will be facilitated by experienced or master song leaders coming from all over the U.S. At night we will have an open fire circle where anyone can teach a song to the group in a "popcorn" style.
Thursday August 31st: 3pm-10pm: Arrival & setting up camp, sacred fire & community singing in the evening.
Friday, September 1st: Opening ceremony at 9:30am and the magic begins!
