Upcoming Workshops/Retreats

Join musicians Cornell Kinderknecht and Shelly Niebuhr for a special three part series on Music As Spiritual Practice.

Music has been a vital component to the spiritual journey for thousands of years by virtually every culture and has a powerful ability to open our whole being. Through music, we can experience spiritual healing and a sense of deep belonging.

In nearly every spiritual tradition, sound, music, or vibration is the Supreme Source of all that is, of all that exits. Music connects us to something deeper, both inside and outside of ourselves.

In this series, we will explore:

* Live Music & Processing
* Music & Healing
* The Power of Entrainment
* Music As a Meditation Tool

This series will be an inspiration to music-lovers, musicians and all those devoted to “spiritual living”.

Cost for all three classes: $80
Must Pre-Register to Attend
