Women were the first singers of magick, and female voices singing with intention was about magick - doing or making something happen. Join Ruth for this special seasonal workshop with chants and context for celebrating the female and goddess-centered holy days of the pagan calendar. This singing workshop focuses on chants that overlay the female life cycle with the seasonal mythic cycle of the goddess, and how women can use the energetic potential of chant for personal and group healing, rites of passage, and celebrations.

Registration includes Ruth’s 2-CD set, The Year Is A Dancing Woman – Songs, Chants, and Invocations for the Wheel of the Year to be mailed to you prior to or after the workshop based on when you register. the CDs are a "perk" for participating in this workshop. (If you already have these CDs, gift them to a friend!).
