Join master storyteller and song leader Laurence Cole from Pt. Townsend WA, for a weekend of connecting in song on Bowen Island. A long-time member of the Ubuntu Choir network (www.ubuntuchoirs.net), Laurence has a great gift for using the power of song to bring people together in a rich and deep experience of harmony in community. Inspired by the work of Malidome Some, Michael Meade and Francis Weller, Laurence compassionately leads groups into the depths of grief and the heights of joy. We’d love to have you in the village!
Friday night (7:00 – 9:30) and Sunday afternoon (2 – 4:30) are open community Song Circles, and Saturday (9:30 am – 9:30 pm) is an all-day Grief Song Ceremony, with an optional follow-up on Sunday morning. You are welcome to come to any or all of the events of the weekend. The Song Circles are each $40, the Grief Song Ceremony is $80, and the cost for the entire weekend is sliding scale $120 – $200. There are many wonderful B&Bs on Bowen Island, and billeting can also be arranged. Contact shastamartinuk at gmail dot com for more details and to register.
