The Singing Soul: Improvisational a Cappella
By David Hatfield
Hello Haven community!
I'm just returned from a 3 month contract in China. It was super hot, humid and the air quality is truly challenging to me. I found myself not wanting to sing much there, due to these factors. The people were beautiful and gentle, so the human experience was really great. My gratitude for Canada/BC west coast has grown again, as it does when I go anywhere. We are such lucky people to live here!
I'm gearing up for a fall of a lot of singing and I am grateful, and excited to get at it. This fall season will again feature my annual intensive, depth experience of The Singing Soul at The Haven. This intensive offers a depth immersion into the structure and magic of improvisational singing. This duration of time spent together allows intensive and repeated exploration of one's self as an improvisor, time to befriend diverse improv structures, to learn from other singers and to more completely explore new possibilities in your singing and expression.
I was just at The Haven last week leading singing and movement work in a Haven program. I was reminded of the amazing qualities of both the workshop space and the setting of sea and forest. The intentions of The Haven as a learning place, its history, the zillions of humans journeying into themselves, their expressions, all combine to imbue this place with an energy that produces very magical and amazing outcomes in The Singing Soul. No matter who shows up, no matter what time of year it is ... a LOT of magic happens at this event!!
