Join Holistic Resistance at Finnriver for a Song Circle and Potluck featuring Aaron Johnson— at Finnriver on Wednesday November 29th from 5-8pm. An opportunity to chant, sing, rest and meditate in community.

Sound of Rest Song Circle is a song meditation centering on black voices uplifted to interrupt the trauma story of Unrested Labor. This is an opportunity for us to be in prayerful meditation and a slowing down of what it means to absorb a collective commitment to supporting folks who have been navigating the state of being Unrested in their resource gathering. This is a mixed-space event. Both people of the global majority and allies are welcome. The meditation will support holistic thinking on how to make resource gathering happen in a rested state in communities that have historically had to fight for survival. The event will also help break down what it means to be an ally, a key supporter, an anchor person, and a disruptor of the Unrested Labor trauma story, not just this weekend or this month, but as a part of a life practice. Unrested Labor is the acknowledgment of the slavery and post-slavery exploitation of black labor that is often unvalued, untracked, and unsupported.

Participating in our song circles look many different ways: singing, harmonizing, jamming with your voice, tapping your feet, snapping your fingers, or listening. There is no requirement to sing!

The Finnriver Kitchen and food vendors are not open on Wednesdays so this is a BYO food event. Bring something to share! The Finnriver Cider Garden taproom will be open for drink purchases.
