Let the Spirit of Song Move Through You
Connecting with our own truth through using song-channeling, writing and singing can also be a cathartic, allowing us to assimilate change and process our life lessons and personal journeys. Song can be a mirror, and it can be a way to release blockages, to soothe and to heal.
During this workshop, we will weave together nature connection practices and routines with deep listening exercises, discussion blocks and of course, lots of group singing and vocal exploration. We hold a safe space for exploring song-writing, and for sharing of both spontaneous song moments as well as more in-depth "works-in-progress." We look forward to meeting each of you where you're at, gently nudging you to push your song edges, to go a little deeper into your journey as a human with a voice. Previous song-writing or singing experience is not required. Come, if there's a small or big voice in your heart encouraging you to do so.
Kate Sutherland is a Wilderness Living Skills Instructor and Inner Tracking Mentor with Sticks & Stones Wilderness School, and has been playing and writing music since she was a young girl. Raised on piano, voice and guitar, she has most recently been moving a Capella poly-rhythmic mesmerizing music into being. Her most recent and current musical project is her 52 Songs project, where she is writing one nature-inspired song per week for an entire year, for the love of nature and music, with the goal of encouraging others to find their voice and deepen their connection. Through musical, visual and healing arts, Kate is dedicated to her own learning journey, and to inspiring others to seek out and nurture their own truths.
Carly Joynt, who was raised on brass and soul, debuted her career making dance
routines to the Stevie and Pink Floyd albums spun on her Dad’s record player. She has spent time on stages of various sizes from Roy Thompson Hall to the park by her house with kids and believes that if you can speak- you can sing. Music is our birth-rite and it has the power to heal, foster connections and effect social change. Through her work as a Nature Connection Mentor Carly has discovered that the world around us sings and that no matter who you are we all have access to these sweet sounds.
