Old songs are more than tunes - they are little houses in which our hearts once lived. Within your unconscious sleeps a library of wisdom, memory, and feeling cataloged in the words of songs. From lullabies to songs of love and longing, you have an inner language you may be unaware of. Even if you think you don't know any songs or have forgotten them all, your subconscious has been storing them and their meanings since birth. To be held at a private home in Santa Cruz
$50 per person ($40 for members of CY) RSVP by September 12th to firstname.lastname@example.org
The power of Singing from the Heart is in experiencing a new connection to yourself and to others. Come alone or bring someone important to you - friend, lover, parent, someone with whom you1d like to communicate in a different way. If you wish, bring photographs of significant people in your life, past or present.
* If the idea of getting up and singing in front of other people terrifies you, this workshop is for you.
* If you love to sing in front of other people and want to stretch yourself further, this workshop is for you.
* If you have trouble listening to your own voice, this workshop is for you. If you've been too shy to try, this is your chance.
