Description

Music As Medicine Retreat w/ MaMuse & Lydia Violet

Join us July 5-8 for 3 days and 3 nights on the beautiful land that carries River's Bend Retreat Center!

The Work that Reconnects and Community Singing are tools to support us in cultivating vitality in the midst of all that it is to live in these times. Let us come together to sure up our readiness to THRIVE, not just for ourselves, but for our planetary family as a whole. We are all at the hub of the wheel of this Great Turning, each being asked to do our part. As we take time out from our daily lives to courageously dive into the work of becoming resilient, we are giving our selves and to our communities a precious gift, inspiring the next wave of life to live with full capacity for both grief and joy.

This retreat is offered to nourish your creativity and courage for the Great Turning, the transition to a life-sustaining society and the essential adventure of our time. Lydia Violet Harutoonian will lead us through an intimate experience with the Work That Reconnects (WTR), a dynamic, interactive body of work developed by Joanna Macy, inspired by Joanna’s own scholarship in systems theory, deep ecology, and Buddhism as well as 50+ years of international activism. Practiced internationally, this work has helped many thousands of people to engage in the Great Turning, re-invigorating our energy for action and resiliency.

Hearts opened by grief and celebration want to sing their songs of longing, despair, belonging, reckoning, brilliant valiant warrior-ship, and gentle loving kindness. Singing as a council of friends is one of the most healthful, encouraging, invigorating, and nourishing things that we know. Together we will create space that allows for the tending of wounds, giving ourselves permission to make music, learning both technically and emotionally how to free our voices into song. Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker of MaMuse will guide us as we explore songs to uplift and nourish, to share grief and passion as a path to unfolding gratitude, health, wisdom and connection.

This workshop is open to music-makers of all levels. We will have both time for connection as a group and reflection in quietude and stillness of nature.

The retreat will also feature a performance Saturday evening by Lydia Violet and MaMuse at River's Bend, open to the local community in Medocino County.

"In this Great Turning we shall learn to lead in Love, in this Great Turning we shall learn to lead in Love." ~ MaMuse
