ūüĆĻ ūüé∂¬†The¬†Voice of Awakening¬†ūüé∂ūüĆĻ
On this month's episode of Vocal Revolution (video below - or listen on Apple Podcasts) I talked about the power of music and meditation to awaken us more fully to life with Michael Doiley- DJ/ Producer, Life-Coach, Speaker and author of Learn to Meditate: the Secret to Lasting Inner Peace.   
We'd love to hear from you: 
Do leave comments and share your thoughts!


1. Music is Profound
If you play the right music that’s the best thing you can do for people and its something that crosses international barriers - Michael Doiley
In our conversation Michael talks about how music is at the core of our existence, in the rhythms of language and our bodies.  Driven by his mission to awaken the spirit and get it dancing, he shares stories of his experiences of music and of his work as an international DJ playing for a star studded list of celebrities including Kylie, Will I am, Diana Ross and Mariah Carey.  He shares how he has seen the power of music transform people - from clubbers on the dance floor to young people in our local community.

2. Humanity awakening to itself
 We are powerful...We are more creative than we think
- Michael Doiley.

Immensely sad though this year has been, it has given us a chance to learn and given our planet a chance to breathe. It has forced us to adapt, innovate and create - to claim and use the freedom of our minds whilst we are outwardly restricted.  It has brought oppressed voices to the fore - people protesting and breaking free of divisive socially conditioned limitations. The Black Lives Matter protests last year and the powerful uprising of women worldwide following Sarah Everard's brutal murder have highlighted many layers of social injustice. Taking to the streets is only one form of action- the greater invitation is to take a stand for life, for white supremacy, misogyny, racism, all forms of hate are anti-life, as
Layla F Saad says so beautifully in her latest newsletter:

We must stand for life.
We must stand for the safety, dignity, well-being, joy, and thriving of us all.

We must affirm life.
Knowing that whatever affects one part of our great family of humanity affects us all.

We must protect life.
Because we are all that we’ve got.

We must nurture life.
Because to do the opposite is to surrender to the virus of hate that will consume us from the inside out until we are but a shell of our humanity.




3.Go for it! Don't Hold Back
  Just move forward with purpose, with love and anything’s possible! - Michael Doiley
When we recognise and dismantle the limitations of negative beliefs and social conditioning, we create a space for transcendence- to go beyond and go for our dreams. Just by taking the deep belly breaths, we can reset and release fear.  With the mighty magical tools of music and meditation we can harness our power and creativity and move forward with good intent.


ūüĆĻ ūüé∂¬†Be well, be safe, breathe deep, sing loudly¬†ūüĆĻ ūüé∂
Lots of love, virtual hugs and good singing vibes

Camellia
From the tender heart of spring emerging
Bursts the winter rose, tsubaki -
Startling beauty of petalled perfection,
Luscious¬†ch√°huńĀ¬†tea flower,
Nestled in leafy treasure chests
Of the world's most beloved beverage.
Multi-layered floral faces trace
Multi-national roots to many places -
Enjoyed for centuries in the gardens
And ceremonies of China, Japan, India,
Clipped and traded by Western colonists,
Named Camellia by a Swedish botanist
After a Moravian Jesuit Botanist
Whose studies of Filipino plant medicine
Did not include his namesake.
Swooning, self beheading,
Feared by samurai, beloved by lovers,
Death locks stem and flower
In eternal embrace.

ūüĆĻ¬†ūüé∂¬†The¬†Voice of Global Feminism¬†ūüé∂ūüĆĻ
The magic of March includes International Women's Day 2021 and  Mother's Day. On this month's Vocal Revolution Zoomcast (video below - or listen on Apple Podcasts) Raakhi Shah, CEO of The Circle shared how we can support, celebrate and empower the voices of women and girls worldwide
Here's some reflections on our conversation - we'd love to hear yours! 

1. Circles of Connection
This is the power of the circle ... to bring the voices of women
to the forefront. - Raakhi Shah

When I heard Annie Lennox speak about her charity The Circle at an IWD March 2017, which supports women to form circles which ripple out to community, social, national and global levels, I signed up immediately.  The Circle works on the premise that when women join together, they empower each other. The Circle is made up of overlapping circles- there's a Music Circle, a Healthcare Circle, a Lawyers Circle and Circles for global regions.

2.Global Feminism
 It’s about bringing together a collective of women across borders, building those connections and really supporting each other.
- Raakhi Shah

Global Feminism, the core concept at the centre of the Circle, is based on the understanding that the experiences of women around the globe are diverse and that feminism needs to be supportive and inclusive of women who are excluded or vulnerable.



3.Tea Breaks Down Barriers
You can always hear a cackle of laughter between women, no matter what they’re doing. - Raakhi Shah
Reflecting on how we can build cross-cultural understanding, Raakhi told the story of the Global Music House, where working with Irise International, young women from Uganda and the UK joined together through the power of music to create a global dance hour that people around the world enjoyed.  Having fun, laughing and drinking tea together is all part of making a difference and building connections.

4. Happy International Women's Day!

IWD is such a pivotal global moment for everyone to think about being inspired and recommitting to women’s rights - Raakhi Shah


8 Days of Action - 1st - 8th March
Ideas for ways you can get involved:


Amplify the women in your #CirclesofChange
Celebrate your mum daughter/ granny/ friends/ colleague/ neighbour/ community pioneer/ frontline heroine/ role model. Share and tag The Circle.

Virtually march at the Care March for Women on Sunday 7th March

Join The Circle's IWD Event with Annie Lennox in conversation with Baroness Lola Young on Monday 8th March.

Make a pledge for gender equality
This can be as simple as making time for a chat with a good female friend.
I pledge to continue donating and raising funds and awareness for The Circle
and to continue the work of amplifying women's voices in choirs and coaching.

Wishing you a Magical March and empowering, inspiring
International Women's Day & Mothers Day

Bees lapping croci nectar in the honey of the almost Spring sun,
A pale orb hanging in the reflective faces of rocky pools.
Bare trees twizzling their twisted branches towards heaven
Whilst I squelch through winter's muddy residue on earth,
Clambering hills to catch breath and gain perspective
On this strange, ugly-beautiful urban landscape I inhabit.
Here tenacious nature fills whatever pockets she can find
With her wild, enchanting songs, humming with a symphony
Skyscrapers can only point bluntly towards, puncturing skylines
Where birds sail on wings garbed with the promise of Spring.

Vocal Revolution Zoomcast Ep 5 Voice of Activism with Tom Morley and Katie Rose

ūüĆĻ ūüé∂¬†The¬†Voice of Activism¬†ūüé∂ūüĆĻ
On this month's Vocal Revolution Zoomcast (video below - also now available on Apple Podcasts - yay!) Tom Morley and I talked about activating the inner rockstar and making a generous contribution to the world. 
Drummer and founding member of Scritti Politti, Tom has earned the title of Rockstar Activator for helping people get out of their boxes through music at events, workshops, keynotes, retreats and conferences. 
Here's my reflections from our conversation - we'd love to hear yours! 

1. Self Liberation
It’s all about permission - Tom Morley
Activism is motivated by our deepest held values, convictions, beliefs and purpose.  It starts as an inside job - as Caroline Caldwell says, 'in a society that profits from your self doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act.'  The first task is to love and liberate ourselves and our voices.  In our Zoomcast, Tom speaks about how we liberate our 'wild twin' from the shackles of social conditioning and judgement, so that we can really come to the party of life.  As we give ourselves permission, we give others permission, becoming a force for change.

2. Making a Generous Contribution
Generosity of spirit has a kind of rolling energy to it, so you create more generosity in yourself and you allow others to be generous around you... Tom Morley
Change happens in a wave like motion, just like the movement of sound through air.  Being activated by what touches, inspires or pains us, sends ripples out into the world which reaches and connects with others in resonance.  Giving generously from a sense of our interconnectedness - as expressed by the principle of Ubuntu - I am because you are - builds momentum for change.

3. Lead from where you are now
Seize the day, don‚Äôt wait till you‚Äôve done that extra workshop or read that extra book or talked to your coach,¬†who‚Äôs the leader in this house? ‚Äď you‚Äôre the leader! - Tom Morley
Activism rarely comes out of having the perfect conditions, resources or qualifications - it occurs as response to a big question, challenge, issue where things are very far from perfect.   It requires take a leap of faith and belief that change is possible - even if not in our lifetime, but for future generations.
This weekend choir members have been taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch (29th Jan-19th Feb) to help provide vital information for conservationists.  Also this weekend, friends from the Women's Equality Party held an online rally and flooded Twitter with the hashtag #HomeSchooled to highlight the impact of the pandemic on parents and Early Years workers.  Also this weekend heroic activist Marcus Rashford, spoke out against the racist abuse he receives, prompting calls to address hate speech on social media. 
Right now, we all have to be our own heroes and leaders to get through each day and support each other - whether it's fundraising for our heroic frontline workers, contributing to our local foodbank, homeschooling our children and checking on our neighbours.  

We don't have to be perfect, we just need to give ourselves permission to speak up and stand up for what we believe in. 
So let's all follow those calls of our heart to share bold, brave, beautiful actions in the world.


One of my actions for February is to invite you to a
Food of Love, Fundraising Feast of Poetry and Song - see above
Do let me know if you'd like to come to this or any other singing thing
- I'd love to see and sing with you virtually.

Wishing you powerful, loving activism this February

Hope dawned today -
Chinks of light breaking through
Ravaged chambers of broken hearts.
Hope carried on the flaming voices
And soaring redemption songs
Of stars and seers, young and old.
Hope that the choking stranglehold
Of brutal oppression will be met
By the bending arc of justice.
Hope that our fractured world,
Frayed by disease, fear and greed,
Might stitch together a new unity.
Hope that we might, in treasuring
Our breath and the breath of our beloveds,
Learn to let our planet breathe.

New Year's Inspirations 

 

Dear <<First Name>>

Happy New Year!
Hope you had a safe and peaceful, if strange, Christmas.
In this bumper-packed January Edition of The Rose Window Newsletter enjoy:
* New BLOG - How stay tuned to our New Years Inspirations
* Poem of the month - And Still We Sing
* Vocal Revolution Zoomcast - The Voice of Celebration with Gill Manly
* Singers Salon - one space left!
* Choirs - New Year update
* A Year In Song - Big thanks to all who came to sing in 2020!


New Year's Inspirations
So here we are in January, the month of two headed Janus, the Roman God of Doorways, looking back over the last year and forwards to what we want to create in the next. As we make our resolutions for 2021, here's some insights on the art of getting down to things, gleaned from my experiments
in the time-warped pyjama zone of lockdown.  

Celebration
Celebration gives us a foundation to build from - a place of strength anchored in gratitude for all the learning and growth, including the bumps along the way.  When we celebrate how far we've come, we generate momentum for what we want to do next.
Undoubtedly there's been massive amounts of challenge, loss and still much uncertainty about what lies ahead, but if nothing else, let's celebrate that we're still here. That in itself is huge. And, if you haven't already, write down at least 10 things from 2020 you can celebrate and feel proud of. 
It will put wind underneath your wings for 2021. 


Inspiration
In times where breath has become even more precious, inspiration is essential for staying on track. It's a magical thing, we breathe in and life happens.
We don't have to resolve to do it - it's organically happening every moment.  Inspiration kickstarts creativity, breathing life and love into our dreams.
So I can take my list of resolutions, breathe life into them and make them happen right now from a place of magic, creation and adventure. 
Resolving to lose weight becomes being inspired to learn about nutrition
and take an online dance class. 
Resolving to do yoga becomes being inspired to spend time stretching and breathing in the morning because I love how it makes me feel
.
This is much more exciting than repeatedly telling myself I must do something and that I'm wrong if I haven't done it.  Eventually my inner rebel gets tired of that old punishing way of doing things and mutinies,
but it will get fired up and run with inspiration. 

Motivation
Motivation gets things moving. And the secret to motivation, as any good detective will tell us, is understanding WHY Colonel Mustard took the Candlestick to Miss Scarlett in the Ballroom.  So we have to regularly remind ourselves of WHY we want to do a thing, especially when the going gets tough.  During lockdown, I sorely missed being on my feet conducting and needed to keep my mind, body and spirit moving. Inspired by friends, I started the Couch to 5k and since June I've been running 3 times a week. Some days I don't want to, but I know it's keeping me sane and well, so I run.  Even today, when it was almost snowing and I thought my fingers were going to fall off, I ran.  My Why literally kicks me out the door - Auntie Katie wants to be able to run fast and play chase with her 7 year old nephew when she can see him again, so she runs - which brings me onto...


Connection
Connecting and sharing our resolutions, dreams and goals with others exponentially increases success rates. 'Accountability Buddy' is a buzz term which I find a bit off-putting, because it conjures up the image of someone with a clipboard counting what I have/haven't done.  I am however deeply motivated by authentic connection with those who inspire, encourage and cheer me on.  It does not even have to be a real person - my 'coach' for the Couch to 5k was the recorded voice of Olympic runner Michael Johnson telling me how far I'd come and urging me to keep going. By the end I had internalised a new way of talking to myself about running. Previously I said 'no way am I a runner, I will never run,' now I inwardly cheer myself on.  (Hypnotherapist Marisa Peer calls this Installing the Inner Cheerleader) 
Having set myself the ridiculous task of running home up the steepest hill in London with a 20% incline!?, I congratulated myself each time I ran a bit further to the next car, post box, or lamppost.  I was inspired and motivated by the thought of celebrating with friends, and am now running up the hill!
Developing this encouraging, connected dialogue with self and others has helped me stay the course with creative projects and lockdown challenges. 

Despite the constrictions many of us are still facing, do gift yourself the magic of breathing life, love and inspiration into your dreams and goals, knowing that they have a purpose to fulfil which will bring you into connection with others and be cause for celebration.

If you'd like support staying tuned to your voice and creative projects in 2021,
please do get in touch for a free 20 minute consultation.

Wishing you a joyful, peaceful, songful start to 2021

Be well, be safe, breathe deep, sing loudly

I've been deeply moved by seeing how the magic of song continues to sustain us even when socially distant, on screen or through a mask.

** Plus 2 Christmas Bonus Christmas Videos below **
 1. Have fun with this cheeky version of
Have Yourself a Yellow Little Christmas
I made for my Digital Friends at Yellow Tuxedo.
2. If you missed out on Carol Services, do enjoy the Community Carol Service with my Welcome Choir at St John the Evangelist

Wishing you a magical Solstice and safe, peaceful Christmas
Hoping that despite the difficulties, you can find nurturing ways
to stay connected to loved ones.
Here's to brighter days ahead in 2021

Thank you so much for singing your song
and sharing the magic of you in the world


Be well, be safe, breathe deep, sing loudly 
Lots of love, virtual hugs and good singing vibes
