What to expect:

Over this 2.5 day songwriting retreat we’ll begin writing using a specific alignment meditation and songwriting method John teaches to co-create group songs. Well then proceed with other exercises that will allow us to divide into smaller groups.

The goal is to have as much fun as we can writing amazing new songs together while using our time effectively!  We may also have time to try exercises you’d like so be sure to mention any you’d like to offer for consideration.

We’ll also have ample time to relax and enjoy, each other’s company and rest!

Cost:

The cost of this all-inclusive 2.5 day writing get-together is only $350 and includes lodging, workshops, and food (prepared by my wife) for the gathering!

Who is this for:

This retreat is for positive music artists and you have been invited because we know you will help us co-create the perfect experience for all involved.

Rooms:

You will get a room and roommate assignment when you arrive. Towels and Bedding are supplied. We appreciate your willingness to work with us on the use of the space so that everyone who needs to be there will be there!

Meals:

All communal meals will have vegetarian options (with vegan, gluten free and raw food options AVAILABLE ON REQUEST so let us know ASAp if you have special dietary needs). We will provide some lite snacks, but we recommend you bring some of your own favorites to make sure you have what YOU really love!

Pool:

The pool will be open so bring your bathing suit if you want to DIVE in!!!

What else to bring:

A writing pad with ample paper, favorite writing utensil, water bottle to refill throughout the retreat, comfortable clothing, a yoga mat (if you have one and one to join the morning meditation/stretch) and closed toe shoes in case you want to walk around the lovely grounds at NaMestoy.
