Singing and dancing are two of the most universal expressions of the human spirit through all cultures and all time. In today’s Western world, singing is often relegated to the realm of performers and entertainment, distancing us from its potential as a vehicle for profound joy and healing in our communities and lives. Lisa G. Littlebird is dedicated to reclaiming song as an ancient but vital, primal technology of human connection. In this shared practice of singing together, we not only discover a pathway to unlimited communion and release, we offer a powerful contribution to these polarized times: compassion and empathy toward ourselves and others. Through gentle, exploratory encouragements and a diverse repertoire of more than 500 oral-tradition songs, Lisa cultivates a supportive, uplifting circle of group harmony and sound, inviting all singers to expand and delight in the full potential of their voices. She has been a popular song leader on the faculty at Esalen Institute for more than a decade and her style is rooted in compassionate awareness practices. This workshop is designed for singers of all abilities and levels of experience, including no experience or negative experience in need of healing. Come prepared to find your voice (and not just your singing voice!), explore your capacities with curiosity and collect songs and tools to nourish your well-being and enrich your life.
