About the facilitator…
Shireen Amini is a singer-songwriter / musician based in Bend, Oregon whose performance career has interwoven with her passion for healing and indigenous wisdom through the development of “music medicine” offerings. With background in world music, drum circle facilitation, *circlesinging, and sound healing, music-making with Shireen is both exciting and soul-nourishing. Shireen also performs original conscious world-soul-pop in her live looping one-woman-show and is the lead singer of Latin dance rock band, ¡Chiringa!

*Circlesinging is an improvised, often wordless, form of singing in a circle developed by Bobby McFerrin in which a song leader
creates on-the-spot interlocking melodies and harmonies. Shireen trained with McFerrin’s colleague David Worm during her
certification in Sound, Voice, and Music Healing at CIIS in San Francisco.
