It was a real priveledge to work with Carol Shortis on her Women's song camp in January. We spent a weekend at Waiohanga lodge in wonderful company singing, eating great food, swimming in the river and doing a weed walk. I helped run an evening singing session amongst the trees and ran a few non singing challenges as well; group juggling and tightrope walking no less!
The highlight for me was leading a sounds of nature session where we first tuned into listening to each other to solve a knotty rope problem and then a relaxing and focussing experience in listening to nature and then walking through nature together in silence. We all noticed so much more and when we broke our silence and talked together afterwards about our experience, many said how moving that was for them.
Thanks Carol and Juli for including me.
