SONGS LIKE SEEDS: PLANTING HOPE NOTE BY NOTE

Sara Thomsen

Sara Thomsen

Singer - Songwriter - Community Builder

Sara Thomsen is a singer-songwriter and a weaver of community song. Thomsen has released six solo albums, her latest is entitled Song Like A Seed. In addition to her songwriting and solo performing, Thomsen is the founder and co-director of Echoes of Peace, a non-profit which holds a mission to inspire awareness, action and reflection on critical social issues using music and the arts to build and bridge informed, engaged and caring communities. More about Sara at www.sarathomsen.com and www.echoesofpeace.org.

Harmony happens in community! Songs sow solidarity. Songs sung with intention, like seeds planted with care, can take root in an individual or community and flower into unexpected fruits: simple joy, healing balm, increased sensitivity, awe and wonder, a re-enchanted and revitalized spirit, a grounding and centeredness, a deepening of compassion. The art and practice of community singing draws us outside of ourselves and at the same time deepens us within. Participants will experience how song builds and bridges communities, note by note, part by part, breath by breath. No previous singing or music reading experience required.
