Being around the Triple Spirals means that your day is likely to be punctuated, seemingly at random, by chant and song. The Triple Spirals use vocal music in the old way: for bonding the community, for communicating shared experience, for creating a participatory sound with which you are invited to join, for creating fun, for moving the human soul. There is also the more obvious focus of the Triple Spiral chants: the text itself. But rather like The Form in Tai Chi, the text of the chant is to give your brain something to occupy it while your body and soul are chanting.

What I love most about these entrancing Triple Spiral chants are their beauty and the ease of their simplicity. One can learn them quickly to sing alone or with others for a myriad of sacred purposes. The melodies and evocative lyrics enhance any spiritual gathering or ritual.

Traditional, mystical, and original tunes of praise and promise. A blend of women's skills, passions, purpose set to music; to enchant, invoke and invite. Elemental invocations, translations, salutations, and prayers - simple and profound. Calling forth the Goddess in her many guises. A blend of women's skills, passions, purpose set to music; to enchant, invoke and invite. Elemental invocations, translations, salutations, and prayers - simple and profound. Calling forth the Goddess in her many guises. Casting spells, telling tales, welcoming power and grace to the circle. The wheel turns. Earth, water, fire, air, center. SHE hears the wise women singing and awakens.
