Bob Sima and Shannon Plummer ​Guest Musician & Practical Breath Workshop Sunday, December 3rd - Workshop, 1 - 4 PM

Bob Sima is a nationally-touring singer-songwriter based in Annapolis Maryland. When Sima opens his mouth to sing, what emerges is far beyond the human sounds of his warm and soulful voice. It’s a call, a remembrance, a soft and steady place to land. Sima’s concerts are a musical satsang or gathering of truth that navigate the audience on a profound musical journey every time. 

He and his partner, Shannon Plummer, are creative collaborators. Shannon - as a powerful healing presence, spiritual teacher, intentional creation coach, artist and singer; and Bob - as a singer-songwriter, spiritual teacher and musical mystic. Together they amplify each other's talents as they weave their individual gifts into a divine combination of music, harmony, wisdom, joy, and presence that will lead the soul into truth. They offer keynote presentations, concerts, music meditations, workshops, and retreats around the country.
