Schedule (SA Cascadia)

August 7th – 10th, 2020

What is Singing Alive? – Agreements  –  Schedule –  What to Bring 


Daily Schedule

We begin Friday morning, please arrive no earlier than 12 noon on Thursday. 

Following a light breakfast (8:00 – 9:30), we gather in a OPENING CIRCLE (around 9:30), to share a few songs, exercises, logistical info, and introductions to whats to come for the day.  

Whats to come are offerings (aka ‘class’, ‘workshop’, etc. .) in the morning (10:15 – 12:15), early afternoon (2:30 – 4:30),  and late afternoon (4:45 – 6:45).

Lunch is at 12:30 and dinner at 7:00. 

Evening activities include fireside song circles in the two sky lodges.   These each have a fire tender, and a facilitator, who lightly keeps song sharing happening in a traditional SAC way that encourages equitable sharing, and welcoming space for novice singers.   Evenings also include informal song circles in other areas of the gathering.  Various formal ceremonies (e.g., letting go;  grief;  forgiveness;  honoring ancestors;  honoring cultures;   fertilizing wishes) may be happening in the mix.  

High volume voices and instrumentation dial way down after midnight if there is camping nearby.  There will be a couple hours of (semi-) silence between 6–8 am.  

‘Flowering Angel Wash’ will be happening Sunday afternoon.  A marketplace / barter fair happens Monday afternoon, so feel free to bring things to sell or trade. 

We will officially end late Monday afternoon, after the marketplace, though people are welcome to stay for dinner.  
All attendees must depart soon after dinner unless otherwise arranged, or move their camping location to the grassy parking area if they wish to spend the night, and leave Tuesday
