Sound Celebration

SOUND CELEBRATION encompasses so much, from our circles around the fire where we join our voices together to share medicine songs and story, to collective dance journeys under the light of the stars guided by an incredible DJ.  As our beloved Sound Mama of the last 4 years Brette Howard shares: Sound is ceremony, and music is healing. Together we celebrate the ways that sound and song connect us all to each other, to the earth, and to ourselves.

 

At the Gathering you can find many classes offered that celebrate the healing power of sound, such as singing classes, drumming workshops, dance, and more. We also come together for our  Sound Celebration – an open mic night to honor and uplift our many talented Weavers who’d like to share their sounds. On Saturday night each year we also gather for our fireside Song Circle, where all are invited to join voices together and share songs new and old. Then, on Sunday Night we come together to dance it all out with a DJ performance as the sun sets and the stars light the night.

All of these offerings are in celebration of the collective understanding of the power in sound. Since the beginning of humanity, sound and song have been guiding and healing forces in our world, and we are honored to hold that power in reverence and celebration here at Spirit Weavers.
