Upcoming Events

Song Circle: Songs for Grief & the Unknown @ BALLARD HOMESTEAD with Alexandra "Ahlay" Blakely + special guest Shireen Amini

Arrival 5:30pm

$12-17 sliding scale, Venmo or Cash No one turned away for lack of funds

Imagine a group 30-100+ folks in a circle, singing… together. The song leader teaches easy to learn songs in an acapella style and the group echoes them back. These songs are sung together collectively as invitations to move stagnated emotions in the body and to be in our bodies as we notice what arises for us as we sing together. Ahlay offers a 2 hour container invoking connection that serves as a catalyst to discuss + sit with taboo topics in our culture and movements for collective liberation.
