About This Event

SPIRIT SONG IS NOT JUST FOR MUSICIANS! YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A SINGER OR PERFORMER. IF YOU LOVE MUSIC AND ARE INTERESTED IN HOW SOUND CAN TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE, SPIRIT SONG IS FOR YOU! READ MORE BELOW !

Communal   Intentional   Sacred


Spirit Song is an invitation to come together as a community to share music and explore how we can harness music’s power for a more connected and joyful daily experience. You are invited to use your personal voice through group experiences in singing, lyric-writing, and storytelling. Together, we will share the music that we love, reflect upon the connection between body and sound, and learn about the components of ritual, working with sound vibration, mantra, and rhythm as vehicles of wisdom and transformation. Absolutely no musical background is necessary, only a love of music.

Heart-Opening   Musical   Connecting

In Eastern thought, music that we hear (called Ahata) is intimately connected with the music of the heart (Anahata). We all know that music has the ability to make us laugh, cry, and dance, but many world traditions teach us that, when combined with intention and amplified by community, music holds the power to raise and sustain positive vibrations at a deeper level that reverberate throughout our lives and the world at large.

It was so wonderful to be in such a beautiful mountain setting with the community. The opportunity to have intellectually stimulating conversations with a variety of men of all shapes, colors, and ages in a beautiful rustic face-to-face setting was spiritually enlightening and a welcomed change (contact info blocked) The majestic 170 acre setting was bursting with wildlife and it is actually on the top of a beautiful mountain with two ponds (one has a water-fountain), a big new swimming pool, and one really large wood-fired sauna along with a huge hot-tub (contact info blocked) I hated to leave and I can’t wait to get back!

Meals are provided three times daily: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is usually served continental style, with assorted breads, bagels, and cold cereals available, along with a hot cereal, yogurt, a hot breakfast entree, and fresh fruit. For some retreats, the last day will feature light snacks in the early morning and a late morning brunch. Lunch and dinner are usually hot meals with fresh bread and salad available. We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat.
