Singing Ourselves Home – A workshop exploring singing for those on the thresholds of life
Sunday 11 August @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm$20 – $25
Singing at bedsides is an ancient practice that we have almost forgotten. To be remembered, valued and cherished is a sacred act of love. Come and learn songs that calm, comfort & reassure, those who are struggling to live with illness, dying or grief. Imagine a world where all life’s thresholds may be honoured with compassion and shared through song, where kindness is made audible.
A Threshold Choir has started in Newcastle and is based in Adamstown.
“Singing at bedsides is a calling that invites us to be sacred instruments and empowers our voices to be kind, courageous and creative, to feel the spirit moving in us and sometimes to be galvanised into songs”. Kate Munger, Founder of Threshold Choirs www.thresholdchoir.org

Singer/Songwriter, Community Choir Director, Voice Movement Therapy Practitioner & InterPlay Australia Leader. Trish has over 10yrs experience with Musical Direction for the Sydney Threshold Choir and cofounding the Cambodian Threshold Choir in Phnom Penh. She says: ‘Singing softly is highly under-rated. When we sing softly with peaceful loving intention, a prayer of blessing, gratitude and hope rises. We access the tree of life which becomes a sacred communion, an offering shared with others on behalf of others. What is the greatest motivator for humanity? Not money, not wealth, not identity … it is compassion.’
