Celebrate Autumn Equinox with Singing and Meditation

Sunday 22nd September 2019, 19.00-21.00

The harvest is winding down, the crops have been plucked and stored for the coming winter and we celebrate mid-harvest festival with song. The Pagan tradition called it Mabon, and we celebrate the balance between light and darkness. A time for thankfulness and reflection.
We will learn songs by memory (as in the Natural Voice approach) and will end the session with a meditation.
Please bring a pillow if you would like to sit on the floor to meditate.
Refreshments will be provided.
Where: Cambrian Community Centre, 1 Grove Rd, Richmond TW10 6SN
Check here the Meetup group for the event.


Celebrate Winter Solstice with Singing and Meditation

Saturday 21st December, 18.30-20.30

As we reach the depth of darkness of the year, the sun stops declining with a promise of light. Yule, or Winter Solstice traditions are many an varied, and as the sun is “reborn” it’s a time for introspection.
We will celebrate with seasonal songs of no specific faith, learned by memory (as in Natural Voice workshops) combined with movement, and ending the session in a meditation.
Please bring yourself a pillow if you would like to sit on the floor to meditate (otherwise you can use a chair).
Refreshments will be provided.
Venue TBA
