Singing provides deep medicine for the soul, and by gathering together around the campfire we can find simple joy, gratitude and belonging.
As the wheel of the year turns, reclaim space to grow closer to nature and find your unique voice. Sheltered from the elements and warmed by a campfire, we will tune in to the natural environment, using our senses to connect to the physical body, breath and sounds. We’ll then warm up with some “vocal play” before group singing (short chants using “call and response”). There will also be an opportunity to experiment with your own soundscapes to add dimension to the group harmony. Through each voice uniting, we hope to find greater clarity and presence in the moment, before bringing the session to a gentle end.
No prior mindfulness or singing experience needed. Please dress appropriately for the weather and your own comfort. There will be a simple sheltered structure to protect us if it rains.
You will be guided in meditation by Claire of Wild Awake Mindfulness whilst Joanna Huddart will lead us in singing, chanting and mantra. Joanna is an experienced performer and set up the first (and only) womens drum circle in Manchester. She has a passion for the natural world and of sharing folklore and world music.
Meet at the Bowler Street Entrance to Highfield Country Park (10 mins BEFORE the event starts please)
