What we're about

Four Points Awakenings is an interfaith/non-sectarian semi-spiritual group that combines many types of group singing, chanting, toning and drumming with observation of silence. During our Singing Meditation the combination/juxtaposition of singing, drumming and meditation, which are often engaged in separately, result in a synergy that enhances both sound and stillness. We also have a drumming circle that meets monthly.

Drumming Circle

All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church of Braintree

All levels welcome. Drumming with a group. Drums available to play.

South Shore Singing Meditation Meetup

All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church of Braintree

In Singing Meditation a simple song is typically sung repetitively by the group until the song spontaneously dissolves into silence with a gentle signal to end the silence after several minutes. The singing part of “Singing Meditation” includes a variety of vocalizations: toning, chanting, singing in rounds, singing in harmony and mantras. The repertoire is interfaith/non-sectarian: Jewish, Sufi, Native American, Christian, earth-based, Hindu, Buddhist, Pagan and others. Our goal is to sing or chant enough times that our collective vibrations resonate deep in the heart of each participant. Some of the songs used in Singing Meditation are slow and contemplative. And, some are high energy and joyful with percussion and / or other instruments. The songs in Singing Meditation are deliberately chosen to be easy to learn.
