Song Writing & the Art of Listening with Laurence Cole in Victoria B.C.
October 20, 2017
Victoria, B.C., Canada
Church of Truth

Friday, October 20th, 2017, 1-4 p.m., Church of Truth: Song-Writing & the Art of Listening

What is your song? What story do you wish to tell through song? As humans in this ever changing world, we all have songs within – songs of joy and praise, songs of pain and sorrow, songs of celebration, revelation, and renewal.  Laurence will guide the group in a process he calls theTao of Listening, born out of his years as a counselor and teacher of T’ai Chi.  Folks will then work with partners to coax the medicine out of each others stories, then craft those words into simple songs that can then be sung and even further worked by the larger group.   Participants are often amazed and inspired by how quickly deep feeling and meaning can emerge as easy to learn, powerful songs of healing and beauty.  Having our stories sung back to us can be greatly affirming, even when we have never seen ourselves as a “song writer.”

This is open to everyone. No song-writing or singing experience is required.  Register at:
