To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves. However small the world we live in, if we can transform ourselves, bring about a radically different point of view in our daily existence, then perhaps we shall effect the world at large, the extended relationship with others.
Intimacy and Solitude
This invitation is to join other women singing on the mountain. Emerging from wintering through,
we will explore our musical soul stories in a time of deep community, Through music, journaling and embodied practices,
We will explore the ways in which music defines, heals and grows us. We will take an inward journey to better know ourselves and to connect to the emerging beauty of this beloved place, Kirkridge. With the music of vital leaders in the singing circle tradition, we will learn more about who we are as singers, performers and witnesses.
Come and lift your voice with others who long for a more just and peaceful world.
Come, with your longing for the deep songs that connect us to each other, the earth and our deepest, truest selves. COME SING ON THE MOUNTAIN!
