The Listening House

The Listening House is the name I have chosen for our meditation room at the festival. The name I borrowed from a song by the band Lazurus... a folk/rock band from the early 70's. Their lyrics inspired the band I was in then and have since inspired many others. The one song I want to zoom in on for this setting is The Listening House. In it there are seekers, people with questions about life and relationships and places of community and worship. I hope the lyrics will also inspire your own search or journey... whatever that may be.

Go on down, go on down to the listening house.
Don't be afraid to choose.
Don't be afraid of those you find,
they 're there to listen too.

Lazarus 1971
