Awakening the Voice


Start Date: 2018-05-12
Time: 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Description:

Playful Nature and The Gathering Fields are excited to be collaborating in 2018! We are offering 3 seasonal experiences for women, to explore the voice and connect with the land, ourselves and each other. Come together on this beautiful landscape (in rural Lancashire), for joy, playfulness and transformation. 'Awakening the voice' is our first invitation - to allow our voice to re-emerge as spring is in full flow. We will be warming up our bodies and voices with gentle exercises, singing seasonal songs together and exploring our voices in playful ways. We will walk across the moorland plateau and connect with the birds and the sky before descending into the beautiful woodland to tune into the spring flowers and fresh-leaved trees. Here, we will make time to sit, listen, and contemplate, and weave our voices with the beings around us... before returning to the cosy barn for tea and cake, for reflection and a relaxing sound meditation. All voices welcome, there is no such thing as a wrong note! For information on bookings and how to pay for these events please contact Amy at info@playful-nature.org.uk or 07938 878268 or Helen at info@northernapproach.co.uk or call 07791 254101.
