The night is designed for open hearts and spirits and those who are open to relish and drop into stillness and silence as well as lift the roof with their voices.
Refreshments available from the Cocoon Cafe, serving Chai, Teas, Chocolate & Nourishing Food
Family Friendly Space – There is a separate room for kids to chill out / sleep in

“The inspiration for this event came from a community circle singing event I was a guest at in Byron Bay, Australia in February 2018. I could sense the strong sense of a community coming together to sing and hold space, the cross-fertilisation of medicine songs and devotional chanting, the sense of overall quality in the musicianship, and the blend of focused mood with relaxed access to come and go and get some food at a chai cafe, to dance or move at the back, sit and sing at the front, or lie down on a sheepskin ….
The idea is that this event on May 18th in Devon will be the first in a series of Transfigured Night events, happening in the SouthWest and SouthEast – having a floating pool of musicians so that each event has the same feel and flow, the same mood and intention, the same musical quality, and the same sense of something sacred for the community … answering a growing thirst for folks to come together in this way, non-denominational and without plant sacraments … simply opening the heart, lifting the voice, and making space for stillness and silence as part of the musical flow.”
