Feel the Vibrations

The children trickled in slowly and we had several different hello songs to make them all feel welcome. As the group grew, so did the songs that we sang.  What started out as a quiet sing along turned into a very energetic group.  This week we explored the vibrations from the Tibetan singing bowl. The children took turns trying to produce a sound as well as feeling the strong vibrations from the bowl as it was passed around.  By the end of the session we had a big jam session and said goodbye for a little while.

There were 12 children and 9 mothers present today with one staff member on hand.  The staff was a volunteer whom I had not met before.  She helped facilitate the group and seemed to enjoy herself.  There was better than usual adult participation this week.  As many of the mothers who sometimes sit on the edge of the room brought their chairs around the circle.  It was somewhat unusual but most welcome as they sang and danced through our activities.

The group was excited when I told them that I would be returning for more music sessions beginning in October. I look forward to the fall session at Beatrice House.
