About the Facilitators (David & Vera)
As a balance and complement to his Social and Community work, David has loved leading a variety of Community Choirs, singing camps and workshops, as well as sessions of sacred song – recognising first-hand the power of communal singing to bring people together, developing instant intimacy and deep listening, releasing tensions from the day, and offering connection to Spirit.
Vera has lived in Findhorn since 1995. She works as a ceramicist in her studio Claysongs Ceramics at Findhorn. Singing was a major source of joy (and growth). Shy to start with she participated in singing wherever possible and led Taize singing for many years. She developed a particular passion for Georgian singing and is co-leading a Georgian singing group at Findhorn. With David she has been leading singing events for more than 10 years, teaching ‘by ear’ rather than from dots and making sure that the joy of singing is always at the centre. They love sharing songs from different spiritual traditions with the aim to share togetherness and to touch Spirit.
