Activities at The Skyros Centre, Greece

Singing Tribe with Carol Donaldson

Sun 30 - Sun 6 Sep 2020

So you think you can’t sing? Come and learn how to free your natural voice using fun and gentle techniques. Open to all, from experienced singers to those who only sing in the bath and especially for those who‘ve been told they can’t sing. 

Using natural voice methods we’ll learn to sing in group harmony a range of beautiful songs from the 4 corners of the globe, old and new - from the hills of Macedonia to uplifting Zulu anthems, from sacred to secular -all accessible, soulful and heart opening.

When we sing together we become ‘entrained’ - our heart beats synchronise, and we create a ‘morphic field’ of resonance together, like a shoal of fish, a flock of birds. We step out of the ‘tyranny of the separate self’ and this singing field feels very joyful, moving and healing to be a part of.

Let the ancient power of group singing un-inhibit you, uplift you and open your heart. 


What's included?

Carol's course is held in Atsitsa Bay on Skyros island in Greece and is part of the wide range of courses and activities available. The holiday includes full board twin shared accommodation in an eco-hut.
