About the Event

Come circle up in the woods under the sheltering roof of the gazebo at the Center for Belonging for Songs+Beauty+Play+Nature+Relaxation.

We'll sing to connect with each other, to bear witness, to make beauty, to share stories, to grieve, to celebrate. We'll sing because we are alive together and we have voices to put to use. We'll sing because there are important things to say, and song brings them power. We'll sing because it makes us laugh, and cry, and this feels good. We'll sing because we have been doing it for millenia. We'll sing because we love to sing!

The songs that we sing are easy to learn, and are taught to everyone who wants to learn them. They are often not long, but once they have been taught they become a playground that we can explore for as long as we want. Most often songs are taught using call-and-response. Whether you are a classically trained singer, a bathroom shower singer, or have never sung before, you will be able to follow along with the group, held up by the many other voices singing alongside you.

We love harmony, we love improv, we love listening for the places to be quiet together and the places that call for loudness, and finding our way as a group of listeners in creation together. You are welcome to join us in this continual experiment!

There will be two song circles with a break for lunch:

  • 10:00-10:15am arrivals
  • 10:30 am-12:30 pm song circle
  • 12:30-2:00 pm lunch, relaxation, walking, games
  • 2:00-4:00 pm song circle and closing circle

Folks are welcome to come Saturday night and camp on the land. Contact Liz for details at

*Please pack your own picnic lunch.
