I was a first-timer at last week’s circle singing. I thoroughly (literally–mind, body, spirit/emotionally, physically) enjoyed the experience. You know you’ve engaged in a meaningful event when that’s all you can think of upon waking the next day and all throughout the week. (I was) in awe at how all-encompassing the process is. Peace inducing and exhilarating all at one time. I look forward to the next time …. I simply loved being part of the sharing of voices and spirits. Thank you for making circle singing accessible to all. It’s a beautiful thing.
