Workshops & Retreats

African Village – Saturday Workshop 2/16/19

 

Ever since the beginning of Sing Portland! in 2013, African music has been the singers’ favorite music. Barely a term goes by or we’re singing some African song. Now you can immerse yourself in a full day of African culture. 

An entire Saturday of African singing AND drumming AND dancing AND enjoying a scrumptious Ethiopian lunch together. How unique is that?! 

This mini retreat has the benefits of being totally out of your regular routine for a Saturday – yet don’t have to go far. It’s right here in SE Portland. Right next to Mt Tabor park. This is a beautiful opportunity for Sing Portland members to spend a day together – get to know each other better. And a great opportunity for non-members to join our warm and welcoming community for a day. My promise to you is five and a half hours of pure joy!

Saturday February 16th from 10:30 am till 4pm.

5915 SE Division Street, Portland OR 97206

Open to members and non-members of Sing Portland!

Attendance limited to 25 participants. 

Sign up here for one participant ($195 including lunch and use of djembes)

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 25 – 27, 2019

 

The songs and activities for the fall focus on abundance and gratitude. A beautiful theme to explore before the holidays.

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.

Last year’s singing weekend sold out. Book early!

All prices based on double occupancy. Feel free to e-mail me with questions or requests.

I so look forward to singing with you.
