Prayerful Singing
25 Nov 2014

Would you like to sing in a way that touches your longing for the divine?

Do you want to sing like that free of dogma or creed?

Then you are in the right place!

Prayerful Singing happens every fourth Tuesday evening at Hawkwood with Leo and Sundara Sofer.

We start with a gentle warm up for our voices and then learn 6-7 songs as rounds / canons or in parts. The songs come from different traditions and include Taizé chants, songs in the style of Nickomo Clark's Harmonic Temple and Wildgoose sacred chants from the Iona Community, among others.

Arrival 7.15pm. Sing 7.30-9.15pm

£7 sliding scale

Solstice Spiral
21 Dec 2014

A simple ritual beginning at dusk, to celebrate winter solstice and focus on the meaning and beauty in your life.

Take an unlit candle into a spiral formed of winter greenery, reflecting on the past year. Light the candle at the centre and walk slowly out as a preparation for the new. Place your candle on a table with others and stay as long as you wish in the quiet atmosphere.

Children’s spiral 3.30pm – 5.30pm (with gentle live music in the background). Children under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult

Adult spiral 5.30 – 9pm.

The Winter Café will be open.

£5 adults: £2 children

Volunteers are welcome to help setting up, welcoming guests and clearing away.
