Sacred Song Circle Presented by Neva White

  • 06:00 pm
  • The Buttonwood Tree

Let’s Sing! This is for anyone who loves to sing, whether or not you have a great singing voice. Singing words of affirmations and empowerment are like healing prayers and everyone wants to hear their voice. This is all inclusive of anyone who wants to share in a healing song circle. Most of these chants are from Women With Wings Songbook and are modeled after the circle formed by Womyn’s Music Festival Circle, directed by Linda Smith Koehler. Bring rattles or drums and your good spirit! Neva White has been a member of this group as well as CT Center for Spiritual Living and wants to bring this to the community, and then new songs back to CCSL. Please donate $5+ to The Buttonwood Tree for the pleasure of meeting there.

Neva White is a volunteer of CT Center for Spiritual Living and a member of a group called Women With Wings which has a wide variety of chants that are empowering and affirmative. Her intention is to bring this music to the community and encourage all genders to attend, as these songs are only the seeds of our beginnings. “I expect this to be joyful, soulful and fun!”

In the words of Kay Gardner who inspired the songbook by Linda J Smith Koehler:

“These chants and rounds [were] gathered by a variety of sources: from recordings, from workshops and festivals attended by [Women with Wings] members, from various spiritual traditions, and from ceremonial gatherings with our friends. After our evenings of singing together we felt radiant and whole. We realized that singing words of affirmation and empowerment were like healing prayers, and that not only did the music carry the prayers out to the universe, but they resounded within our deepest souls as well.”
