Song and Story Circles
HOW DOES IT WORK? This is stress-free fun for all ages and backgrounds. An informal, creative process. As we go around the circle, everyone is invited--but not required--to speak or sing. Whenever people gather in circle, observers and participants meld into one. Everyone plays a part, whether they listen or share, and there's no such thing as a mistake. While we enjoy our diversity, we mostly focus on the center--our commonality--not on our personal histories or levels of experience. We arrive free of expectations or agendas, and we raise no politics, promotions, or announcements. No one talks over, or questions, another, and the only requirement is that everyone introduces oneself if possible. Whatever happens was meant to be.
March 28th's circle is part of a curating process for our next "stage" show to be aired live, set for May 30th. This is not all about "show" however. We seek any and all heartfelt contributions. If you'd like to be involved in that, please make sure you share in either the March 28 or April 25th zoom circle, and then email a paragraph about it to by May 11. It does not have to be an original, but it does have to be something you love. Tell us why it matters to you. Maybe it just helped you get through winter? Maybe it's about struggle, courage, hope, or adventure? Or maybe it's a new way of looking at our common experiences?
Into the Light!
Saturday, March 28, 7-9:30 pm
Has the rainy winter given you time to learn a new song or story, or simply given you the need to connect with others in a new way? Let us help you bring all of this out and into the light of each other's shining faces! Soundfalls offers the connection many of us are hungry for. Bring a song or story out of winter's hibernation and into the light of each other's shining faces! Or just say hello, and tell us how you are doing.
Featuring your longtime Soundfalls hosts, Byron Ricks and Maren Van Nostrand, and special guest host on the zoom switchboard, Blair Fillingham!
