Over the months since the fire, many of you have reached out with offers of support as we recover from the fire. It has been, and continues to be a long recovery, and we are doing our best to match pace with the many moving parts, and especially, the needs of the land itself. Thank you for your patience!
Council is a circle-based practice with roots in cultures around the world. It fosters attentive listening and authentic expression, through listening and speaking from the heart as we share our stories in community. This practice affords us the opportunity to find our collective wisdom, compassion for our shared humanity, and service to a story larger than just our own.
Please join us for a community singing circle in collaboration with greater goods, a local non-profit arts, learning and gathering place. Guided by musician and songwriter Glen Phillips, we will learn and sing a variety of songs from around the world, blending our voices in multi-part songs, rounds, and harmonies.
