ChantSong gatherings are an opportunity to reconnect with our voices and precious breathing space during busy lives.  You are invited to immerse in a circle of flowing song that's easy enough to sing along with on first listening.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
