On Sunday, August 7, we will host our Community Potluck from 4:30-7:00pm. Join us to visit with friends and neighbors, and to practice wellness through connection. Sol offers a safe, intentional, learning and healing environment where professionals collaborate to provide accessible, holistic wellness services. At Sol we know that nothing we do is done alone, and that is one reason we love our bimonthly community potlucks.
At 5:00pm, Austin-based musician and artist Jacqueline May will lead us in Circle Singing. Circle Singing is a form of group play using everyone’s voices. There are a variety of ever-changing games at the beginning that involve different improvisational skills and different numbers of participants. We culminate in full group songs. A leader spontaneously creates and shares harmonic and rhythmic patterns that are given to group members to continue, while still more patterns are created that fit with them, and then the leader or others as invited may solo over the whole. The resulting Circle Song is totally unique. Song leadership shifts around, so that many people have a chance to experience hearing their inner music brought into the world and reflected back. People of all kinds can come and be welcome.
No experience in singing is necessary, and experienced musicians can discover a challenge of a completely new kind.

This event is always fun. In previous months, the community has shared food, drinks, jokes, and musical talents. Feel free to invite friends or family, and bring anything you’d like to share. We look forward to spending a low-key and stress-free evening with you! We will gather inside or out depending on weather and temperature.
