The Joy of Group Singing Retreat

Saturday October 8th — Sunday October 9th

Light on the Hill

Van Etten NY

Leader:  Elisa Sciscioli

Previous singing experience recommended

Explore the enriching nature of singing through exercises that strengthen and free the voice.  Learn to connect deeply with ourselves and others through the flowing medium of song.  We come together for singing meditation practices, improvisation exercises, journaling, discussion and simple, uplifting, soulful songs.

There will be free time to explore the gorgeous 236-acre property.  Experience the walking paths, two labyrinths, ponds and plenty of space for silence and reflection. The retreat is held during the Fall peak season, when the beauty of the changing leaves is most present!

End Time:  3 p.m. Sunday October 9th
