18 Dec Simple Songs to get you Through
As I journey toward wholeness (especially as a mother) I find myself dipping over and over into the reservoir of simple songs that I know as a way to bolster my day to day energy, connect me to many manifestations of community, and to articulate some of the wisdom I am learning about myself and the world.
During the course of this workshop participants would engage in some or all of the following;
-reflect (verbally and/or in writing) on the ways song has worked to heal, hold histories, and express shared experience in the lives of participants
– using an a capella, call and response method, learn songs for the home and family, for spiritual sustenance, for connection to community and nurturing our visions of a just and vibrant future
-learn the historical and social context for the songs taught, with encouragement and possibly opportunity to explore more in-depth independently, stand in lineage with singers past and present who have used song for these same purposes
-explore and work collaboratively to craft a singing practice and think together about how that might be made real in the day to day lives of the participants
Simple Songs to get you Through will be hosted by Jessie Grace Eller-Isaacs
