About The Event

Make a JOYFUL Noise: Singing as a Spiritual Practice

We offer a safe space to sound/sing/find our voices – freeing the sounder/singer in us for use in spiritual ways. 

“The idea of spiritual practice for me is to give witness to the power, the energy, the Mysteries that I am unable to explain by going within and producing sound from the heart.” 

--Mary Bucklin

Things we want you to know:

  • Our goal is not necessarily to make us into singers or better singers, but to help us express our authentic selves and free the joy within us, engulfed by love and joy, without judgment.
  • We will discuss and experiment HOW we can use sound/song/chant for spiritual uses.
  • We will sound/sing in large and small groups, using vocables, soundings, chanting, and singing to reach and try to express the knowing of our hearts.
  • We will offer morning soundings to welcome the day as well as evening soundings to welcome the night.
  • We will teach songs, but our goal is not to be teaching as many songs as possible.

No singing experience necessary, just curiosity and a willingness to create sound with others!

Facilitated by joyful singers and longtime Hope Springs advocates Mary Bucklin & Mary Manera.

$500 for 2 nights lodging, delicious meals, and the chance to raise your voice in song.
