FOUNDED IN SANTA CRUZ, CA by Heather Houston in March 2005, Sisters in Harmony singing circles have inspired thousands of women to feel a deeper connection to themselves, their local and global communities, the natural world, and the spirit of Life that moves through all of us.
SISTERS IN HARMONY is a growing movement of heart-centered women devoted to amplifying the voice of the rising feminine spirit by singing together in sacred circle. We sing songs and chants that open hearts, uplift spirits and inspire a movement in consciousness. We believe that singing is our birthright, and that all women can enjoy freedom of expression!
SINCE THE DAWN OF HUMAN EXISTENCE, women have gathered in circle to empower each other and transform their lives. We continue in that tradition with the power of song to free our voices and elevate the powerful feminine spirit that is rising on the planet.
OUR MISSION is to empower women’s voices, uplift women’s lives, and build strong, vibrant communities through the power of singing together.
OUR INTENTION is to facilitate deep connections with ourselves, each other, and the spirit of life that moves through everything. We offer an embodied and nourishing experience of harmony that emerges from attuning to each other’s hearts and voices.
OUR VISION is for a planet where all sentient beings thrive! We see the voice as a powerful tool for healing and transformation. We are weaving a world where the Earth and the feminine spirit are honored, the sisterhood is healed, and all women can lift their voices and walk in freedom.
WE VALUE inclusivity, diversity, unity, kindness, authenticity and fostering a sense of belonging. We are a multi-generational community of women from diverse backgrounds, many walks of life, and different skill levels. We are committed to helping all those who identify as women feel safe and welcome.
OUR LEADERS have completed an intensive nine-month training. They are skilled in the arts of carrying songs and holding sacred space.
WHY SING WITH WOMEN? When we lift our voices with other women in sacred circle, magic happens. We open our hearts and free our spirits. We feel more fully at home in ourselves and more deeply connected with each other. We become part of a sisterhood that is rooted in an ancient lineage of our sister song carriers. And we attune to the cycles of the Earth and align with the powerful feminine essence rising on the planet.
