Singing relaxing call and response style using sound to connect, heal, resonate, fly, rejuvenate, renew.
“The act of singing together unifies, clarifies the body, mind and senses, and enhances our connection to the inner self as well as the outer world. Sharing sacred space and song gently tunes us to hear our heart’s desires…a great place to re-enter the world from; our true, expressed and peaceful self.” Diana Clark-de Vries

"I see these chant song circles as a fount in which to quench your need to sing without rehearsing, preparing, or bringing anything along except a desire to submerge into a soothing river of song..." Diana Clark-de Vries
