Join Jon Young and friends for an epic Nature & Music Weekend Retreat… Located in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains, this special event promises to be a deep journey of sound, soul and connection!

For thousands of years & across cultures around the world, people have gathered stories and songs from the land.

The dynamic power of earth-based songs and stories help open the senses, heal old grief patterns, and reconnect people consciously with the power and beauty of place. They carry wisdom, meaning, and even culture itself from our ancient past right up until this present moment - and likely far beyond us into our future.

What if we could all tap into these timeless, magical arts to connect with the land, grow resilient community, and find our true expression?

In this workshop, we will examine the roots of storytelling and how to activate the powerful storyteller’s mind through the practice of music, shared story and nature experience. This popular workshop is one of our favorites! There will be many ways in which you will grow through the humble practice of music and storytelling - no matter what your skill level is or what past experience you have.

Join us in welcoming music to inspire the heart and awaken our intuitive connective awareness as we dialogue through song with the land, and with each other. Experience the weaving of music, intuitive practices & deep nature connection at this Santa Cruz special event - food and camping is included.
