About the Event
Voice as Home: A community song circle, calling in our Wholeness
Mmmm, ommmmm, hummmm, Home: humans make noise! A baby's unfettered squeal, a truth-telling rage burst, sweet moan of pleasure, lullabies only our secret hearts know. But most of us get some version of : please don't. Don't be so loud, don't sing off key, don't tell me the whole truth.
So what's it like to find our way back to truly loving, honoring, and honing the perfectly imperfect voice we are given, trusting that our truth is needed and welcome? Community singing (simple songs taught call-and-echo in circle form) is one path of practice and a growing movement that honors the relationship between our voices and our hearts, our voices and our grief, our voices and our path to mutual liberation.
With a background in community arts, yoga, racial justice work, and collective grief-tending, Lyndsey will invite us into embodiment exercises, vocal warm-ups, & group inquiry that opens an authentic space where we can play inside the music we already are. We'll slow and steady learn fresh songs that speak to the grit and grace of braving up to be real. You'll leave the evening heart open, flushed with oxytocin, and a pocket full of sacred songs to keep singing yourself free.
+All voices welcome i.e. you don't have to 'be a singer' ;) +

Lyndsey Scott is an artist goofball yintennae devoted to priestesSing the Heartland, (literal and figurative). She weaves community singing to empower earth-based spiritual consciousness, and gathers soul circles that, through Song and sacred listening, decompose oppressive scripts that get in the way of freely living the Love we are. With jams that get you skipping easily between the sacred, sexy, and sssssilly : your inner child, exiled banshee, and wise elder are all very invited to the circle.
