Five years ago the wind of the Spirit blew over the water and a seed was carried to my lap. Over the five years since the healing circle singers started, we have shared a journey of challenges and blessings. It has been a continual showing up and letting go, letting go and showing up, and witnessing the blessing of simply being there for others. Others who turn out to be there for you, too. Others who sing, whether they "can" sing or not! Others who sound beautiful in the amazing sound that rises, so much more than any one of us could sound like alone!
So, the wind blew, the seed was carried, and the roots have gone down for five years. Now, behold, the seed is sprouting up, ready to be seen and discovered beyond the downstairs room where we have gathered.
This seed has pushed up shoots, grown blossoms and now the fruit is ready to be shared this Thanksgiving morning. We want to share the harvest on this powerful day of Hanukah and Thanksgiving merging. The Great Miracle, the Great Giving of Thanks, both honoring God's abundant grace in our human lives.
So with the same awe and joy, we offer the world our new little manual that explains how we've done our healing circle of song. You may do yours quite differently, but this can help you get started. We've included a CD of nine healing songs by Helen Fortier, six which have never been recorded before. There are lyrics and chords, and suggestions of ways to center your gathering. Affordable, at $10 a copy, we are hoping to spread the good news far and wide. That's why we called it the: "So-You-Can-Do-It-Too" Manual!
