Participants of similar previous workshops have said that the uplifting, heart-warming songs have enhanced their daily lives as they have sung them around the house or with their children for weeks afterwards.
Selena has a wonderful collection of songs that she has gathered and written, from years of living round campfires, walking the land of the Westcountry, being part of intentional communities and land-based ways of life.
The songs are easy to learn, and will be taught by ear. On Zoom we can't all sing at the same time but the way it works is this:
Selena teaches the song to everyone in the meeting. ( Harmony parts will be taught too). You sing it in your own home - you will be muted. Then Selena plays a recording of the song in full harmony and all the participants sing along, choosing whichever harmony part they want to do.
So you can hear yourself, plus Selena, plus the recording. You can see, but not hear, everyone else singing along!
This is a somewhat strange way of being part of a group singing workshop but it works, as many choir leaders around the country have found.
You'll feel empowered and connected through land, heart and song, and let the songs continue to bring you joy for months afterwards. It's excellent fun!
Selena is currently putting out the feelers to see if enough people would like to take part in a Gather Round Online Community Singing Circle.
Let her know if you'd like to be part of it!
'Selena has such a rich repertoire of songs from many traditions and is a very gifted songwriter herself. She’s a very encouraging teacher with plenty of patience and humour. I sing with her every week and always come away uplifted.'
