Sara Thomsen Singing Workshop

Washburn Meditation Center, 325 Washington Avenue, Washburn, WI

Songs Like Seeds ~ A Singing Workshop with Sara Thomsen 1-4pm at Washburn Meditation Center

Sara Thomsen will be leading a 3 hour singing workshop, open to all regardless of previous singing experience. Participants will experience how song builds community, note by note, part by part, breath by breath. Songs will be taught by call and response. No previous singing or music reading experience required.

TO REGISTER: Email or call Lorraine at Lnorrgard@aol.com, 218-428-4918.

COST: $20 suggested, give as you're able! Pay at the workshop or in advance here: https://www.paypal.me/sarathomsenmusic (include "singing workshop" in the note section)

Come join in singing simple and compelling songs from around the world—songs of justice and peace, songs of hope and longing, songs of celebration. Come reclaim the joy of singing as a human birthright! Depart strengthened and empowered to cultivate community in a world hungry for harmony.

Harmony happens in community. Songs sow solidarity. Songs sung with intention, like seeds planted with care, can take root in an individual or community and flower into unexpected fruits: simple joy, healing balm, increased sensitivity, awe and wonder, a re-enchanted and revitalized spirit, a grounding and centeredness, a deepening of compassion. The art and practice of community singing draws us outside of ourselves and at the same time deepens us within.
