Join us for a contemplative, Earth-centered, Celtic-inspired ritual to mark the turning of the year as the darkness gives way to the growing light. This participatory ritual will include calling in the Directions, chanting & singing, meditation, candle-lighting, and deep connection with this seasonal turning of the year.
Unlike our in-person ritual, this one is not particularly kid-friendly. 🙁
Plan to have with you a candle and matches as well as a noisemaker (rattle, shaker, bell) for the Light Returning section. Because of intermittent connectivity with Zoom, participants will remain muted until invited at certain times in the ritual to unmute. Chants and songs will be participatory and lyrics will be posted in the Chat.
Contact Katy to request the zoom link.
Join me and Elisabeth Haight to celebrate Easter with a Sunrise Service outside at North Beach!
We will have a fire to gather around, but dress warmly as we’ll need to maintain physical distance and ask everyone to wear masks.
Come sing Easter in! Wordsheets provided.
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/composer Laurence Cole, 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. Who doesn’t need more of that in their lives right now?
I will teach each chant line by line so you can follow along, and then we’ll 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.
Join me and Elisabeth Haight for a 45-minute, contemplative Christian music prayer service that draws on the Celtic Christian and Taize traditions.
During the warm months, we meet outside, at Chetzemoka Park in the shelter of the lovely trees and sacred land. If you enter at the main entrance and turn left, you will find us. Please bring your own seating gear, and you may want some extra layers. Masks and distancing are required. Please contact Elisabeth or Katy for the zoom link.
