Sanctuary Sound Journey

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating until October 1, 2022

For thousands of years in traditional cultures across the globe, the human voice has been used as a channel for medicinal presence, personal transformation, and community-making. Drawing on the influence of his ancestors and teachers, Andrew Forsthoefel offers a monthly circle of song, chant, freestyle vocalization, and silence to nourish the soul. Participants sit or lie down in a circle around a mandala-altar made over the course of the evening by Sabra Saperstein. Come take sanctuary in candlelight to rest and journey with the music.

When: First Friday of the month at 7pm at the Good Medicine Studio, 231 York Street in Portland, ME.

Suggested donation: $15-30

Andrew Forsthoefel is a writer and speaker living in Maine. After graduating from Middlebury College in 2011, he spent a year walking across the United States listening to the people he met along the way. His memoir of the journey, “Walking to Listen,” has been assigned as required reading in high schools and colleges across the country.
Andrew writes and speaks about solitude, consciousness, masculinity, revolutionary love, and the discipline of trustworthy listening. He offers his work with the hope that it will be a good companion for those on the journey of personal healing and cultural transformation. He also facilitates workshops for young men in developing emotional literacy, processing what it has meant to be a man, and imagining what it could mean. He can be found online at livingtolisten.com.
