Singing Weekend at the OR Coast!
Treat yourself to three heart-filled days of song, mindful movement and reflection
Join us for a singing weekend at the Oregon Coast.
You’ll be spending three days (Friday evening till Sunday noon) mingling with fellow singers, singing sweet songs, eating great food, and nurturing heart and soul in the lovely beach town of Manzanita, OR. This is a perfectly balanced weekend with lots of singing, moving, and conversing in an intimate group (25 max) of fellow singers with plenty of time for relaxation and beach-combing. Great opportunity to get to know your fellow singers better.
Beautiful accommodations right at the beach
You’ll be staying at the beautiful Ocean Inn, which is centrally located in Manzanita (close to all the shops and restaurants) and is right on the beach. The rooms are lovely – all of them have ocean views, and decks, and almost all rooms have a wood stove. All rooms have a separate bedroom, and a very comfortable sofa bed in the living room. All meals but Saturday dinner are provided. You’ll be only 2 blocks from the singing venue – the Pine Grove Community House, a light filled place with hard wood floors, as beautiful as all our regular rehearsal venues.
Three days of pure joy!
You can check into your room as early as 4pm on Friday, and we’ll gather Friday at 7pm for dinner and our first songs. Saturday is a nurturing day spent with singing, mindful movement and conversation. You’ll have a three hour lunch break so you can comb the beach, explore Manzanita or take a nap. And we’ll gather again for three hours in the afternoon for more singing, movement and conversation. Saturday evening is left open so you can spend it any way you’d would like to: on your own, chanting by candle light, campfire on the beach, vocal improv, playing charades…
Sunday morning you’ll spend another three hours singing, moving and exchanging in the group. You’ll have the entire afternoon to find your way back home again.
Singing Within – October 26 – 28, 2018 (sold out)
The songs and activities for the fall focus on forgiveness as the days get shorter and darker. A wonderful opportunity to center ourselves before the holidays.
Prices are based on double occupancy. Please e-mail me with any questions or request.
Manzanita is nestled in the shadow of Neahkahnie Mountain on the Oregon coast, two hours west of Portland on Highway 101, halfway between Seaside and Tillamook, OR.
I so look forward to singing with you at the coast.
This singing weekend is sold out. Please e-mail us if you want to be notified of next fall’s singing weekend in Manzanita.
