Schedule (SA Cascadia)

Singing Alive!

SA Cascadia 2017 ~~ 

Though we don’t officially start until Friday morning, you can arrive no earlier than 12 noon on Thursday,  There is an informal dinner, and fire-side song circle(s) that Thursday evening.  

Every day we will gather in an opening circle (9:30 am), to begin the day with a few songs, exercises, logistics, and an introduction to whats to come for the day. Whats to come are smaller circles in the morning (10:15–12:15), afternoon (2:30–4:30), and late afternoon(5:00 – 6:30).   There will be Yoga classes offered in the ‘sky dome’ every morning before Opening circle, and likely later in the day.

Evening activities include fireside song circles in each of 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 (sky dome, Ganesha temple, tea house, kitchen. . . ).  Various formal ceremonies (letting go;  grief;  forgiveness;  honoring ancestors;   honoring cultures) may be happening in the mix.  

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


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.  Angel Walk / 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. .
