“Mystics, poets and shamans have always known that in the rhythms and sounds of the soul’s language, the mind bursts open and all levels of being come into alignment.” ~Kim Rosen
Join Kim Rosen and musical alchemist Jami Sieber to pioneer the frontiers of consciousness and creativity that unfold through the transformative power of beauty, poetry, music, writing, community, nature, movement, and profound silence. Poems, prayers, and music can speak the mystery, the silence, the ineffable joys and sorrows of the inner life. When you take them deeply into yourself and speak them aloud you cause shifts in your feelings, your thoughts, and your biochemistry that open consciousness, aligning you with what matters most. You are giving voice not only to the words but to your own soul.
In this retreat we immerse in the poems we love and the words we write. They become our teachers, healers, and companions. We invite the magic that unfurls as poetry intertwines with music. In addition there are sessions of breathwork, chanting, and movement. We enter silence together and alone. There is ample free time to mingle with the natural life that surrounds us: 194 acres of rolling hills, a beautiful natural oak glade, and a meditative labyrinth made of river stones high on the hill overlooking the valley below. The retreat culminates in a mysterium: a exploration beyond ordinary words that spans poetry and music, night and day, sound and silence, waking and sleeping, aloneness and communion…
