Celebrate Winter Solstice with Singing, Meditation and shamanic drumming
Saturday 21 December 2019
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). The Reverend Professor June Boyce-Tillman will take us into a Shamanic Drumming journey.
Venue TBA in Richmond Upon Thames
WOMEN'S VERBAL SELF DEFENCE: EMBRACING YOUR POWER
Saturday 8 February 2020
After 25 years of teaching communities and individuals I got really interested in human behaviour, and not just during music practice. It is for the reason that I have trained in power dinamics, verbal self defence and I am now delivering this course in dealing with verbal attack and abuse, mostly for women. This specific course is aimed to women.
The course provides a collection of very practical tools that can be used when someone is feeling threatened, challenged or despised. We will learn techniques on how to defend ourselfs verbally from bullying and aggressive communicators.
And it will be fun!
Cost: £35. Stay tuned for more information to come soon.

Why singing is good for you (Talk & demonstration)

These features and many more interesting stories about singing will be presented by Maria Soriano, director of Singing4Health CIC and Mindful Singing leader, in a hands-on presentation about the many benefits of singing together, where you will also have the opportunity to join in song.
