Mellor Parish Centre, Mellor, near Stockport
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. The emphasis will be on singing from our hearts. This helps us to open our hearts so that we can individually and collectively connect with the flow of Universal Love and give joy. We will also experience and reflect on singing as a spiritual practice. We will be singing by heart, so you do not need to be able to read music. You do not need to 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.
