Singing Rabbit celebration


Come fill your heart and feed your soul with the magic of community singing at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage’s first annual Singing Rabbit!

 

Building community through song

Singing has been a backbone of human culture for millenia. Whether used for storytelling or recreation, the magic of song has been an essential means of expression, connection, and celebration. You can take part in this ancient tradition with us. Bring your voice to help weave together a wondrous community through song.

No matter your talent, age, or skill there is a place for you at Singing Rabbit. Come and explore singing together within a thriving ecovillage. Join a community with a strong song culture and a rich background in using song in song circles, important life events, and everyday life. Spend your Labor Day weekend with us, out in nature, surrounded by laughter and music.

This unique experience will provide you with:

  • New songs to take back to your friends, family and song circles
  • Guidance from experienced song leaders, including: Liz Rog, Annie Zylstra, and Liat Batshira
  • A chance to learn the hard and soft skills of living in a thriving ecovillage through skillshare sessions
  • Time to dive deep and rediscover yourself and each other while connecting to the living essence of community through the ancient medium of song
  • Knowledge of some of the principles of sustainable community living, and how to apply them to your life
  • The inspiration and courage to spread the gift of song by starting your own community song circle

 

Singing Rabbit will be an intimate gathering of 80-100 people, including many members from our own village. Come experience the heart of community with song, laughter, good food, and connection.
