Upcoming events (2)
RSVP required on our facebook page: Vibrational Awareness Center - New City NY Join us for a free event of good vibes!! We'll reclaim and remember lost songs, traditional songs, folk songs, work songs, sea shanties, songs from the earth skills movement, new songs, de-emphasizing songs that are commercially known and consumed (though not being dogmatic in any way--we can sing as the spirit moves) We'll work from Pete Seeger's Rise Up Singing songbook (sharing lyrics by photo/phone) though please feel free to bring copies of songs you would like to sing as a group. Voices together strengthen the frequency of us all!!! Throughout human history people have sung together-free of judgement or pressure or the need to perform. Join us and the Nyack Skillshare Homesteading-Primitive-Survivalist Skills Group for a relaxed evening of sharing songs and singing together in a free, informal format--no solos required. We'll highlight songs that are meant to be sung as a group-- not as a performance, but as participants. . Songs who frequency lifts and refreshes us! Feel free to bring an instrument (as long as you're comfortable being the background for the singing). Bring a POTLUCK DISH-- bring a meal/ drinks to share-- as always, bring a project/craft to work on while you sing if you like—but if you just bring your love of singing, that's fine, too! Space is limited to 25- after there will be a wait list, so RSVP soon! EVENT NOTES -There are stairs to main room where the event will be held.
