Level 1 Healing + Ceremony Songs was incredible! I really enjoyed the sense of connectedness Mike, Michele, and Dawnia brought to the Zoom calls, plus the experience of practicing with them and fellow students. It definitely helped take my chant practice/music skills to another level. A great song selection, and everything I needed was provided. Some of my favorite songs were Mother I Feel You, and Center of the Center. So good!
