Join My Community to Receive Nourishing Support,
Inspiration, Practices & More!
Join me and Elisabeth Haight for a 45-minute, contemplative Christian music prayer service that draws on the Celtic Christian and Taize traditions.
Starting in November, we will be meeting via zoom, and then hopefully in an indoor space soon. (During the warm months, we meet outside, at Chetzemoka Park in the shelter of the lovely trees and sacred land.)
Come sing together via Zoom on 1st and 3rd Thursdays!
We will chant together to create the world we want to live in through our song. We will sing chants 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!
Contact me for the Zoom link to attend no later than 6:00 on the day of the chanting if possible.
Join Interfaith Minister and Songstress Katy Taylor for an evening celebrating the turning of the year. Katy will lead the group in song and sing a few pieces solo, weaving poetry and participatory ritual that invites us into the depth, stillness, and contemplative aspects of the season. Consider having a candle and matches available if you want to participate in the candle-lighting towards the end.
This gathering takes the place of the bigger, community-led Winter Solstice celebration QUUF sponsored in 2019-2020. Hopefully, we can celebrate in person in 2022.
Contact Katy for the zoom link or with any questions.
