Singing rounds in Cathedral Woods

By Rukmini Walker

My husband and I just spent the last five days visiting my sister Susan, and her husband George, in central coastal Maine, along with our son, Gaura Vani, his wife, Vrindavani, and their kids Revati, Kairava, and Kirtan. While we were there we took a boat across the bay of Maine to Monhegan Island. On the island is a magical forest called, Cathedral Woods where visitors and hikers create hundreds of fairy houses from acorns, ferns, and other various flora. While in the “greenwood”, the kids were inspired to create a multicultural celebration-singing rounds, including In the Greenwood, Dona Nobis Pacem, and Dance Radha Krsna Dance.
