Singing from the Heart – Gloucestershire

07/10/2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

with Andrew Clark
Saturday 7 October 2023
The Church Rooms, St Mary’s Church, Painswick, Gloucestershire

Come and enjoy the beauty of singing together

During the day we will learn simple sacred songs, chants and harmonies, mainly drawn from the Christian tradition. Singing from the heart helps us to connect, individually and collectively, with the flow of Universal Love. Through doing this, we can experience and reflect on singing as a spiritual practice. This can be meaningful for many people, whether their spirituality is linked to a particular faith tradition or to none. We will learn the chants by ear so you do not need to be able to read music or be an experienced singer to enjoy this!

Andrew Clark worked for nearly 30 years as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist in the NHS, before retiring in 2017. His earliest experience of singing was in a church choir and over many years of singing in choirs as well as on retreats and pilgrimages, he deeply appreciates the therapeutic and spiritual impact of singing. He now feels increasingly called to use heart-centred singing and sounding as a way to develop our heart consciousness.
