VIRTUAL – Singing Our Bones Alive!
While we cannot physically be there together yet, we will be Singing Our Bones Alive, remembering the desert sky, the painted mountains, and the wide-open spaces of Ghost Ranch. All Voices Welcome!
Sing your Bones of existence.
Sing your prayers and intentions.
Sing ancient mantras or your very own.
Sing yourself wide open to the possibilities within and without.
Sing yourself in to possibility of an expanded self, voice, and life experience.
Sing your Bones alive!
Singing awakens our senses, renews our spirits, and connects us in community. This virtual Singing Journey Retreat will allow time and space to expand the parameters of one’s own voice, explore the art of spontaneous creation and improvisation, and join in the joy of singing together.
Place has always inspired artists of all sorts. Surrounding one’s self with beauty or artistic grit seems nearly imperative. We know it to be true for healing as well. Ghost Ranch held, healed, and inspired legendary visual artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The land and space since her time has gone on to heal and hold many as a retreat space. The surrounding Desert paints with a palate of immense possibility. Both Virginia and Ruth share deep knowledge of the healing capacities of music, especially through voice. Both have studied with masters in the fields, wielding their own experience, knowledge, and expertise.
Vocal Artists Virginia Schenck and Ruth Cunningham come from seemingly diverse ends of the musical spectrum. Virginia is a renowned international jazz vocalist and Ruth an Early Music chant expert from the iconic Anonymous 4 ensemble. They met in New York years ago through the channels of CircleSinging made famous by legendary Bobby McFerrin. Improvisation and sounds emanating from the self is where they meet, live, and breathe.
