Singing is proven to boost mood and physical and emotional wellbeing, and research shows it also combats post natal depresssion and anxiety. It's been a tough year especially for mothers, and the intention of this women's group is to come together and replenish ourselves. Songbirds sessions are inclusive of children and combine mindfulness, embodied movement and deep listening with joyful songs and soothing lullabies from round the world to boost wellbeing.
Songbirds is facilitated by Kathy Ellwand, a mum and Creative Facilitator based in Cornwall, UK. Kathy trained in Community Music Leadership with Musicians Without Borders, and in Creative Facilitation with Partners for Youth Empowerment and LIFEbeat. She has been facilitating groups using creative arts for wellbeing for 20 years and she trains teachers and youth workers internationally in creative facilitation. Kathy is passionate about the power of song to help people connect and feel great.

🌼"Thank you for bringing song back into my life! I'm singing all the time now and I don't think that would have been the case if it weren't for this group. It's given me a lovely connection with my baby who loves it when I sing and his face lights up! That's also given me a lot of confidence with singing that I didn't have before"
🌸"This group has kept me going and has been a big part of keeping depression at bay. It's also connected me to a possible future of singing... and be able to carry it through into my life. It feels so good for the mind and body to sing"
