Experience an intimate concert of original songs (and some beloved covers) under the Strawberry full moon. I will sing, play piano, ukulele, and some of my favourite 'magical' instruments. This concert will be dedicated to honouring what we are individually and collectively going through during this time. In some way we are all experiencing loss- whether it is the physical loss of loved ones, a loss of jobs, stability, beliefs, or a certain way of being. I will play songs that touch on grief and impermanence, yet I will also include those that remind us of the beauty and wonder of life. You are invited to show up as you are, to experience an evening of love, illumination, healing and comfort.
What to bring:
- You are welcome to have a paper and pen handy during the concert- in case any ideas or illuminations come to you.
- Please bring a candle and a lighter or matches. We will light the candles together at the beginning of the concert.
The format will be as follows:
- Setting sacred space with a brief crystal bowl meditation and candle lighting
- The concert
- Closing the space with gratitude and some toning together (this is optional, you are welcome to simply listen)
I look forward to seeing you under the Strawberry Moon!
