Workshop: Sacred Earth Sacred Song

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Finnriver cider garden, 124 Center Road, Chimacum

This event has been postponed and will now take place on Oct 5th. All the other details are the same.

A 4 hour afternoon spiritual retreat into the voice of the land and Heart. According to Greek mystic Pythagoras, “The highest goal of music is to connect one’s soul to their divine nature.” More than mere entertainment, music is a powerful agent for transformation, both personal and collective; song can call us into opening, attune our hearts to a shared rhythm, and stir us to deepen our connection with self, other, and the divine. In this retreat, Rev. Simon Ruth will explore the power of breath and voice to awaken the soul and foster deep connection with the sacred in a variation on the ancient monastic practice lectio divina. The afternoon will include listening and singing together, storytelling, and an orchard bathing walk with time outdoors creating presence and withnessing the land -- finding our place in the web of creation and depth of connection with one another.

This is an in person only event.

Cost is $80
