Song Circle with Theresa


Song circles with Theresa Horan-Sapunar are a safe, supportive space for all ages and experience levels to come together to breathe, sound, and sing. We learn simple songs and chants from various traditions, with evocative words and meanings that take us deeper into the experience of the moment. When sung repeatedly in an open-hearted manner, a special ambience develops, a sense of being in a sacred space created by the sound waves moving around and through us.

Currently, Theresa’s Song Circles are happening on the 2nd Monday of the Month.

Children are welcome at our events–we love inter-generational gatherings! We ask that children come prepared to participate in the singing (yay!) or to sit quietly with a parent; parallel activities for kids are not provided. Thank you!
