Join us for a wonderful celebration with music, chanting, drumming and more!
Hearts open when all co-create the soundscape together!
Welcome to our special evening with the collaboration between Wessex Wilderness Skills and Magdalena Atkinson Music. Let's drum, chant & make music together out in nature, in a beautiful wood!
What to expect? Magdalena's events are the unique original blend of Magdalena’s spiritual music woven into the community spirit. Nothing touches us more deeply individually or collectively then being fully engaged in a joyous & positive activity. Interactive concerts have been created on the foundation of this principle.
During the workshop you can choose how much you want to participate, by listening, singing or playing together. Everyone has an opportunity to be fully engaged, invited to join with a voices and rhythms. Magdalena performs her music and skillfully teaches her original chants and songs to everyone, gradually introducing more instruments and more freedom of expression. She creates a thriving environment, leading all to the community music making, full of exuberant joy and healing.
Magdalena has been sharing her events at festivals and retreats, always moving the audience deeply and allowing all to be the authentic, creative and joyful!
