Singing with soul. Music and the spirit.
Jennifer Barnes is a singer, a voice teacher, a voice researcher and is a devotee of all things to do with singing. Performing publicly since the age of 9 years on television, in choirs, coffee shops, bands, musicals, operas, oratorio and recital, Jennifer has an eclectic taste. From the beginning, Jennifer’s love of singing has grown through her involvement in worship singing - contemporary, choral and hymns - and her passion for the effect of appropriate music in worship. Research has shown that people singing together sychronise their heart rates, their blood pressures and produce endorphins that reduce inflammation and stress and this tells us lots about why people sing but there is so much more. In her session, ‘Voicing the Spirit’, Jennifer Barnes will explore the reasons for singing in worship and the role of music in spiritual expression.

    What we're about

    This group is designed to explore the spiritual experience as it has been experienced in many diverse ways both religious and non-religious. Participants will have an open mind to journey and learn. How do we experience the spiritual dimension in our lives? How is it linked to our psyche? What can we learn from a whole range of traditions along with the personal experience people bring? This is an enormous broad area with plenty of room for exploration.
