TPE hosts Laurence Cole (full moon) IN PERSON song teach-in
Fri Jul 23 2021 at 07:00 pm to 09:30 pm
Discovery Park North Parking Lot | Seattle, WA
Singing together to nourish the soul and re-enchant the world with song.
Part of Laurence's mission is to re-acquaint people with their birthright and natural ability to make beautiful and meaningful sound together. Most of the songs he's written are short, easy to learn, chant-like songs with several layers that fit over and around each other in interesting and pleasurable rhythmic and harmonic challenges that make them fun to sing. Group singing is one of the most ancient and primal “technologies of belonging” that we humans have been using since our earliest times, possibly before speech itself. When we make joyous and passionate song together, it nourishes our souls and offers an enlivening gift back to the natural world that made us and gives us our sustenance and our very being. When such an exchange is genuinely made, and the song finds its natural ending, often there is a sweet, lively silence in which we simply stand and hold the “enchantment,” the sense of deep and genuine communion amongst each other and with the whole living world.
This is an in-person, outdoor event. Please bring whatever you need to make yourself comfortable (as if we were camping).
There will be unvaccinated and vaccinated people here. We will navigate group requests as needed and trust folx in making their own personal choices about masking or closeness with others.
