Vocal Ecstacy – Circlesinging and Devotional Voice Improv
March 4, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm MST$10 – $20
Come join us in a grounded, celebratory, co-creative and safe space to bring the song of the soul and spirit more resonantly into our human bodies and planetary lives!
Ecstasy is ex-stasis: moving away from sameness/stuckness/ stagnation into freedom and the present moment. From exploratory wonder of the child’s first sounds, to fierce tribal callings, to harmonies in awe and praise of the cosmos, most all we do is improvisational and most all is sung without known language.
Everyone has a chance to lead and to follow. About 1/2 way through we will move into circlesinging, a improvisational vocal community form kindled by Bobby McFerrin in San Francisco in the mid-80’s and from there far and wide!
Laura Io Berg recently returned to New Mexico after 3 years in the East Bay where she was dedicated to circelsinging with Oakland One Voice, and earned a Certificate in Sound Voice and Music Healing at CIIS. She is also an Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurse. Special Guese Phoebe Ackley, Berkeley circlesinger & artist, will be joining Io and the circle for this session!
A donation of $10-20 is requested, but please do not avoid coming because of finances. Please bring your water bottle with you!
