600 3rd Street SE

The winter Solstice marks the beginning of a new cycle, guided by the return of a growing sun. Join us as we meet the return of the light with the light of our own connection - to self and community - through a candlelight singing circle. Lisa G. is here to guide, sharing from her vast collection of easy, beautiful songs from the heart. This is a circle truly open to all- a welcoming place for all ages and all levels of experience. Lisa teaches all of the songs by oral tradition for easy learning and without exception the experience is uplifting, inspiring and joyful. Families and friends are all welcome at this event.

Lisa Goettel has been facilitating connection through community singing in classes, circles and retreats around the world since 2006. She writes: "We sing not because we are gifted, or permitted or arrived. We sing because we are human and our voice is the instrument we've been given to join the fabric of music that connects us all." Please join us.

This singing circle is offered by donation. No advance reservation is required. Come early and enjoy tea, healthy holiday snacks and socializing from 5:30-6pm after the Solstice yoga and meditation class.

WE SING: A Group Singing Workshop for Humans

in VANCOUVER, WA
at the Feldenkrais Center at Salmon Creek
14810 NE 20th Ave

This joyful and enlivening singing event offers an opportunity to explore your voice in the comfort of a group. Seasoned facilitator Lisa Goettel, a longtime faculty member at the renowned Esalen Institute, leads vocal explorations and songs taught by oral tradition, guiding singers of all abilities on a path to vocal freedom and joy.

About Rise Up Singing

Rise Up Singing with Lisa Goettel is designed to rekindle your most pleasurable, childlike relationship with singing. Singing is one of most natural expressions of the human experience, yet many of us have created beliefs, judgments and other obstacles that prevent us from fully exercising this natural gift that is our birthright.

In this two hour workshop Lisa guides a relaxed, fun opportunity to reunite with your most joyful, authentic expression. You will learn the basics of singing with a healthy, effortless voice and join a judgement-free choir for a day, learning a variety of songs by oral tradition.

These workshops are designed for people of all ages and abilities. (Kids under 14 must be accompanied by a participating parent.) You don't need to be able to read music, or even think you can sing. Enjoy a great afternoon of play and connection and leave feeling uplifted and alive.

About the Workshops

Singing offers a powerful way to connect more deeply with ourselves and others. These "playshops" offer an opportunity to tease us out, move energy and make music with no pressure - the simple joy of singing together. Lisa invites singers of all abilities to explore the full potential of their voice through exercises and songs of many genres learned in the round. Her style is shaped by more than 20 years of vocal training and teaching experience and rooted in gentle and compassionate awareness practices.

The workshops are designed for adults of all ages and abilities. You don't need to be able to read music, or even think you can sing. Come ready to explore your voice and tap your spirit in a delicious and energizing way.
