Event description

Description

An Experience of Words, Music, Art, Peace, and Community with Storytelling, Laughter, Expansive Ideas, and New Friends

A feast for the senses and nourishment for the soul. You are invited to rest and be inspired with Americana musician David Wilcox and Irish storyteller Gareth Higgins. With friends old and new, we'll listen to music and story, exploring how the stories we tell shape our lives, and together we'll reimagine the landscape of our souls and experience a better story together!

Gareth and David are known as eloquent and humane guides to healing your own story and transforming the complexity of our lives into a gift to ourselves and the world. New sounds, deep stories, laughter, and rich conversation will form the heart of this soulfully unique and transforming experience.

This two-day experience (from 10am-9:30pm on Saturday and 10am-4:30pm on Sunday)—for thirty guests only— might just last for the rest of your life. Everyone is welcome.

From previous participants:

My attendance at a Medicine Stories weekend continues to nourish my process of self-awareness and acceptance. This short winter weekend (in sunny Southern California) kindled a spark in me that sustains my daily gratitude for my specific, precious life. The Medicine Stories weekend is not only an unforgettable experience in my life, it's unparalleled one! - Christa Forster

We've had the extraordinary gift to be on retreat with Dave and Gareth in both northern Ireland, and on this wonderful weekend in Santa Monica. The experience of taking time away from our demanding lives to sink into their amazing stories, music, and meaningful conversation, has brought both healing and an incredible new energy toward deeper purpose in our lives. - Francie Calfo & Trent Jones.



Dates & Locations:

January 26th-27th, 2019, in Santa Monica, CA

(Saturday from 10am-9.30pm, Sunday from 10am-4.30pm)

Retreat Fee of $485 (sliding scale based on the resources you have available) includes:

  • The services of two retreat leaders throughout the weekend: concert with David Wilcox, storytelling with Gareth Higgins, and life-enhancing conversation with both.
  • A life-changing experience of spirit, imagination, and community
  • Lunch on both days.

In order to make the retreat accessible, we offer sliding scale registration as follows:

For first-time attendees only: The cost for the two day retreat is $485, but we aim to not turn anyone away on financial grounds. If you're attending for the first time, a $150 deposit secures your place, and at the end of the retreat we will ask for a contribution based on the benefit you feel you've received, the resources you have available, and a sense of mutual respect. There is no minimum amount, and your contribution will be confidential.

So if the $485 fee is beyond your reach for now, and you're attending for the first time, pay only the $150 deposit now, and we'll contact you to discuss payment plans, scholarships, and the sliding scale to help spread the cost over up to twelve months. Questions? Email info@theporchmagazine.com
