Next Workshop: Songs of Change 30 June 2018
This singing workshop, open to all, is all about finding our voices to express our need for positive change in the world, and in our lives. We will sing for what we want to bring in, and sing out we want to leave behind. We will chant for the changes that are necessary to bring about peace, love and justice. We will practice harnessing our power and multiplying it by joining voices with others. This workshops will offer a glimpse into the world of the protest song and you will learn about how song and music have been used as powerful agents of change. We will also enjoy some inner meditative time, connecting with ourselves through breathe and sound, so you will leave energised and empowered, yet relaxed and grounded at the same time.
