Contemplative Singing: Singing as a Spiritual Practice
There are many ways people tap into their spirituality: prayer, meditation, yoga, chanting, writing poetry, journaling, dance and for some, singing.  Contemplative singing utilizes a cappella singing to tap into emotions, fostering joy, peace, and connection. While a single individual leads the session, the song selection comes from attendees as they become aware of what they need to buoy, heal or soothe themselves.

Contemplative singing welcomes all voices. Singing is an essential part of being human.  “We are born vocal noise-makers. Someone indicating in any way that another should not sing is violence to the soul.  It robs us of one of our primary forms of expression and communication.” Li Kynvi, UU Minister & licensed music therapist.

The ability to read music is not required. At this Adult Nurture session, we will:
Discuss the benefits of communal singing
Engage in the practice of contemplative singing using the sample song lyric sheets provided
Determine specifics to create a monthly contemplative singing practice at IPC
