Passing through the veil

We will open with a ceremony of gratitude and prayers led by Jewels Wingfield, followed by a selection of deep and moving songs with Asha McCarthy, then an immersion into music as medicine : heart songs, kirtan and prayers for the earth with Sivani Mata.

Sivani Mata is a potent vessel for weaving her prayer-songs. These songs are a conversation with that inner place in each one of us that is ever unified with everything in creation; it is a practice of communion with all that is. 

There will be much encouragement to add your voice and embodiment, and in doing so contribute your unique sound to the collective harmony we create together.

You are invited to express the truth of yourself through these songs of freedom, love and the Earth, kindling the process of transformation which can move through us into ecstatic or cathartic dancing, sweet tears, deep peaceful stillness, the warmth of inner joy, or other expressions.

Dancing with be encouraged and natural expressions of the heart in whatever way that flows from each of us.
