1st & 3rd Thursdays: Chant & Song for Community, Healing & Hope, 7:00-8:00 pm PT
We sing together to create the world we want to live in through our song, singing from many sources—Thich Nhat Hanh, 12th c. Hildegard von Bingen, Scots Gaelic, local singer/composers Laurence Cole and Gretchen Sleicher, and many more from the community singing tradition.
Singing is known to help connect us to ourselves and to each other, as well as to calm the nervous system. We all need more of that in our lives.
I teach each chant line by line so you can follow along, and then we sing all together. Because of the nature of Zoom (delays due to intermittent connection), you’ll only be able to hear and sing with my voice, but you’ll be able to see others and have the visual experience of singing and being together. You don’t need to be a “singer”—just come and add your voice and heart full of good intentions!
To join, contact me for the Zoom link no later than 6:00 on the day of the chanting if possible. Once we’ve started I won’t be able to respond to emails.
1st Sundays: Evensong, 4:00-4:45 pm PT
Cotton Building, Port Townsend, WA
Join me and Elisabeth Haight for a 45-minute, contemplative Christian music prayer service that draws on the Celtic Christian and Taize traditions.
We currently meet at the Cotton Building in Port Townsend. (In the warm months, we meet outside at Chetzemoka Park in the shelter of the lovely trees and sacred land. )
Please contact Elisabeth or Katy for more information. We follow the guidance of Washington State in terms of masking.
