Sisters Singing: Blessings, Prayers, Art, Songs, Poetry and Sacred Stories by Women
edited by Carolyn Brigit Flynn, foreword by Deena Metzger, Wild Girl Publishing, Santa Cruz, 2009.
The book will be the focal point of an evening celebration of the voices of contemporary women to be held on the Third Thursday in March at ArtRage. We plan to combine live music with readings and chanting, this last led by local artist Marie Summerwood, whose original chants are included in the book. We hope you will join us, and read a selection of your choosing from the book!
Sisters Singing is an inspiring, vibrant, and intimate exploration of contemporary women’s spiritual lives. It contains poetry, prayers and stories from more than 100 writers, along with black-and-white artwork and original music notated for voice and instruments.
These luminous works unveil spirituality as it is lived and experienced by women today, in daily life, human relationships, mothering, meditation and prayer, as well as connections with the earth and the ancestors, culminating with prayers for peace and for the world.
