About The Teacher
Singer/Songwriter, lead man for Toad the Wet Sprocket, and solo artist Glen Phillips had been seeking modes of non-performative music for years when he discovered the Community Singing movement. Singing circles focus on short, orally teachable songs ranging from unison melodies to layered multi-part pieces. The experience is a little like church without religion – no dogma, just the feeling of connection with ourselves, spirit and each other.
Glen has been singing professionally around the globe for nearly 30 years and has grown increasingly inspired to share with others the invigorating and uplifting power of Community Singing.
“Being in a community singing circle with Glen is a spiritual experience. It opens me up, connects me to my voice and why I’m here, and brings me such joy. And the love, trust, and deep relationships that form among the group are so tangible and beautiful. Our circle has become a loving, connected community that I and our whole family feel so privileged to be part of! Thank you Glen for bringing all of your great gifts in this beautiful offering to me, my family and this remarkable community.” — Carl Palmer, Santa Barbara, CASource: twocanretreats.secure.retreat.guru
