THE WORLD CAULDRON: Our deep returning to the sacred source Carolyn Hillyer
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH 10:00AM-9:00 PM PRIVATE HOME SOUTH BAY
Limited to 30 women, location given upon paid registration.
We circle around this great thrumming bowl, the sacred vessel that contains our most ancient understandings of the world; this belly of eternal rhythms that rock and churn and pound into the hollows of our bones. The songs of this great cauldron fill our bodies with primordial resonances. Our skin vibrates with echoes from the voices of grandmothers singing softly or robustly far out around the rim. We keep returning to this bowl; we cannot help ourselves for we yearn to merge with far more primal versions of ourselves. We watch those old ones as they stir the magic all around, mix and blend until it spills the brim. And so we crouch beside the cauldron, binding our world together, each sister strong beside her sisters, clans and keepers of the changing earth…
With her most recent work, Weavers’ Oracle, at the core of this workshop, Carolyn will guide a journey of mystic tale, intuitive ritual and profound song around the rim of the world cauldron.
This full day workshop will complete with a 2-hour ritual.
Registrants need to bring:
Sack lunch for yourself
Dish to share for potluck dinner
Plate, cup, utensils for yourself

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH 1:00PM-3:00 PM (PRIVATE HOME SAN FERNANDO VALLEY)
Limited to 40 women, location given upon paid registration.
A journey through ancient totemic sounds and the distant echoes of our ancestral mother lines. When strange songs and hidden drums stir the profound layers of our intuitive memory, how do we heed the summoning call? Perhaps with reckless courage, fathomless conviction and abundant kindness to wayfarers we encounter on the way.
A workshop with voice, drum, rattle and rhythmic feet; bring yours along!
Registrants encouraged to bring:
Drums, percussions items (if you have them)
Water for yourself
$40 Limited to 70 attendees CONCERT WITH RENOWNED ARTISTS CAROLYN HILLYER AND NIGEL SHAW
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH 7:00PM-9:00PM (Burbank)
Enjoy an evening performance with two artists whose music creates soulful enchantment.
Carolyn Hillyer has recorded ten solo albums and worked on many others. Her early albums, including House of the Weavers and Grandmother Turtle, still occupy an influential place within women’s sacred music, and more recent recordings such as Ice: The Cold Songs, Drum Songs from the Heathen Hills and The Cave of the Elders define the essence and edges of her unusual perspective on a mystical and mythological terrain.
Nigel Shaw has produced a highly regarded and diverse collection of recordings over the last 30 years. His gentle and soul-filled instrumental works, and ability to infuse his music with a powerful yearning for wild nature, have come to define his unique approach to sacred sound.
