2018 Great Rhythm Revival :: Sherman, NY @ The Heron
Four Days of Rhythmic Bliss
Aug. 2-5, 2018 Directed by Jim Donovan
Drumming. Yoga. Ecstatic Dance. Energy Medicine. Amazing Food. Nightly Music... and much more

The Revival is for anyone looking for a profoundly joyful and deeply immersive experience where you can:

Learn something new without the worry of being “good” at it
Connect with other like-minded people in a supportive environment
Challenge yourself to expand your comfort zone
Find regular encouragement to be yourself

At the Revival, you will experience a wide range of invigorating workshops including:
Drum & Chant, Ecstatic Dance, World Drumming, West African dance, Yoga, Shamanic Journey, Afro-Cuban Drumming, Energy Medicine, Meditative Painting, Sound Healing, Women's Sacred Circles, Intro to Men's Work, Transformative Writing, Laughter Yoga and more.

In the evenings dance to The Sun King Warriors and Spiral Rhythms, and afterwards, take a walk in the adjoining woods to an expertly sculptured fire circle that has to be seen to be believed.

Lastly, we eat some of the tastiest and healthy food around-vegetarian, vegan and omnivore options are always available. Much of it grown on site in our Revival garden. Camping is free or you may stay at a local hotel or B&B. Though the event is outside, we are under the cover of large tents.

You get...
Over 29 hours of meticulously designed and enjoyable experiences
Revitalizing, lifelong skill sets help you feel your best
Opportunities to learn from an array of gifted instructors
Membership in our private Great Rhythm Revival network
A comfortable atmosphere where you can be yourself
First access to discounted seats @ next year's Revival
Beautiful drums to play during drumming sessions

Meals at the Revival
*Optional meal plans are sold separately and are paid for onsite upon arrival at registration.*

Food at the Revival is a highlight of the experience and something we take *very* seriously. Part of taking impeccable care of ourselves is eating well... and eat well we do. Our menus and food preparation are meticulously planned by our on-site by chefs and volunteer kitchen crew. What you won't find at the revival are hot dogs and macaroni salad.

What you will find is a beautiful array of delicious and healthy food that uses fresh, local, high quality, non-GMO and in-season ingredients as much as possible. There will be food to suit most dietary styles: vegetarian, vegan, omnivore and gluten-free. Many of the vegetable and meat ingredients will be grown here on the land by Green Heron Growers, a NOFA-NY certified organic farm operated by Steve & Julie Rockcastle. http://www.greenherongrowers.com

Full weekend meal service for patrons will start with Friday lunch and end with a Sunday brunch. The cost for all 7 meals is... (meal prices to be announced here ASAP)
