A circle of singers gather periodically to sing and improvise with intention, singing spontaneous prayers which are created to bring healing through vocal exploration and spontaneous giving. Using vocal improvisation and connection to our truth and higher source, we sing, sound, and drum for the healing of ourselves and others. Whether the prayers are sung for the world or are focused on transforming our own lives, the experience can be rich and inspiring, as well as musically satisfying and freeing. Much creativity is revealed in this form of singing. Through melody, rhythm, harmony, timing and community..the joys of vocal music are celebrated.
