About the event
Song is a precious way to see and praise the change of seasons. Come enjoy an afternoon pause to sing songs that celebrate the darkness and gifts of winter. Enjoy them for singing’s sake, or learn them to bring into your community’s holiday festivities ~ to share the power of community singing to slow us down, to bring beauty, to regulate our nervous systems, and to honor the Solstice.
In this interactive workshop, we’ll sing!, and explore strategies to weave these songs into community life. Simple songs will be taught call-and-response (with participants muted because of lag), and ample space will be given to questions you might have as you brave up to bring more song into your community.
In this workshop, you get:
- 4+ seasonal songs to share with your community
- tips for creating ease and clarity in teaching them
- an experiential understanding of song’s power to uplift and relax
- access to free online resources for continued song learning
Who should attend?
You should attend if you:
- want to connect with others
- would like to relieve anxiety and stress
- like to sing!
About your presenter
Lyndsey enjoys living life as multimedia prayer. Educated as a painter, she spent a decade in St. Louis, MO experimenting with parades, photography, and participatory art as catalyst for community transformation. Encountering personal and collective trauma initiated a decade of inquiry into healing modalities, which led to a move back to her rural hometown in central IL. There she seeded restorative practices, including opening a small yoga studio, facilitating a permaculture garden for formerly incarcerated men, prioritizing mending with her family of origin, and teaching art at a juvenile detention center. Now she weaves creativity & healing together in ritual and song, by offering community song circles, ecstatic grief ritual, and group work aimed at dismantling internalized white supremacy and patriarchy. She is currently traveling and weaving song circles at intentional communities and earth churches, sharing mantra from her new album Well Held: tinyurl.com/LyndseyScottWellHeld
