Mountain Song: Prayers to Meet the Moment
With Te Martin, yeshe salz, & Guest Song Leaders TBA
$225-400 (Sliding Scale)
Join us for a 3-day song gathering in the magical high desert of New Mexico. We will be sharing songs of activism and spirituality and connecting with song as a potent medicine that can help us meet the challenges of each moment. Singing in community will feed our soul and fuel us to show up to these treacherous and beautiful times.
Our time together will include sessions guided by guest song leaders and members of our Lama community as well as multiple community led song circles.
