 The Amanda West Newsletter | NEWS & ADVENTURES of a mama musician artist
| April 2020

Dear Ones, 
I know life is busy. I'm mostly living and planning one day at a time.

So I thought I'd send a quick reminder about tonight. I hope you will join me in honor of this special convergence of Earth Day and a new moon, such a perfect reason to take pause, gather, drop into our hearts and our dreams.

I'm leading singing, meditation, sharing and breathing tonight in on online Zoom gathering. Register in the link below, or send me an email and let me know you want to be there. Cost is by donation, $0-$50, whatever makes sense for you today.

Whether you join us tonight or not, I'm sending you all the love and blessings,
we're in this together,


~ Amanda

Upcoming Events ~ 

Earth Day New Moon Community
Ritual & Sing
 with Amanda Wes~


An invitation to tune into your personal relationship with
Mother Earth and nourish your dreams & intentions
for our collective future together 

April 22nd, 2020 | 7:30-9pm


This online gathering will be a Zoom call formatted with ~

  • Opening meditation & guided vocal toning
  • Simple songs to inspire and nurture your relationship with the earth, taught call & response style
  • Sharing and listening to our collective visions
  • All held within a safe, contemplative and uplifting space

and households are encouraged to attend together

* This event will have interactive components to it, however, you are also welcome to join and simply listen (you won’t be able to hear the others singing, just Amanda), and there is no requirement to participate in the group sharing if you would rather let the evening be an internal experience for you.

* Cost is by donation, $0-$50, for whatever amount feels possible and appropriate for you at this time: I want to honor and include all those facing extreme financial hardship right now, and I am also grateful for contributions you are able to offer to help support my own family. What goes around comes around, we all need each other more than ever right now!

* Please write me with ANY questions. I am so looking forward to creating this sacred time and space with you ~


NOTE: You will be emailed the zoom link 15 minutes before the event. Please download the zoom app to your computer, phone or tablet before that time.
