Setlist for Tending Your Fire, Tending Your Heart Retreat (Feb 23-25, 2024)

Dear Friends, 

If you're reading this, you might have attended the Tending Your Fire, Tending Your Heart retreat from Friday, February 23 through Sunday, February 25 at Episcopal House of Prayer near Collegeville.  

We invited folks who have been carrying a load for their community, in a season of deep service, organizing, and/or mutual aid work to lay it all down for a weekend and receive some spaciousness and care.  

Here is a list of the songs we sang over the weekend with links to online recordings.

* no known recording online. Please share in the comments if you find one!
** the composer/catcher of this song is not known to us.  If you do know, please pass it on in the comments.  :)

Here's a list of Resources:
  • Oracle Card Decks - Having a tangible tool to sit with and reflect our feelings back to us helps us slow down, process, and make space for emotional work and intentions we otherwise tend to ignore.  
    • Artist Grief Deck https://griefdeck.com/ - This one was created by hospice workers during the pandemic.
    • Sacred Incantations: rituals of trans wisdom for every season - from Enfleshed.  
  • Buddha Board - https://buddhaboard.com/
  • Instruments:  
    • Shruti Box, literally "sound" or "singing" in ancient Sankrit, replicates the sound of the Tambura, an East Asian Indian drone instrument. Part of the family of drone instruments that show up in many cultures, related to bagpipes and harmoniums. Conie's instrument is from Shrutibox.com run by Ron Kravitz of https://www.musicinthemoment.com/ in Philadelphia, PA

May all of these resources support you in your work and in your rest.  

Liz and Conie, a.k.a. Good Trouble
