Beyond Words: Awakening through Beauty, Poetry and Music

May 2 - 9, 2020

“Mystics, poets and shamans have always known that in the rhythms and sounds of the soul’s language, the mind bursts open and all levels of being come into alignment.” — Kim Rosen

For over 30 years now, Kim has gathered circles of kindred hearts in some of the most beautiful and fierce landscapes on the planet. In this retreat she is joined by musical alchemist, Jami Sieber. Magic is created by Jami’s cello in oceanic resonance with the poems, songs and silence emerging from the circle and the chant of wind, rock, and the cries of the dove.

Poems, prayers, and song speak the mystery, the silence, the ineffable joys and sorrows of the inner life. Immersion in these words, sounds and silence causes shifts in your biochemistry, feelings, thoughts and consciousness that align you with your deepest self.

Packages include:

In this retreat we invite the magic that unfurls as poetry intertwines with music. In addition there are sessions of breathwork, sounding, self-inquiry and movement. We enter silence together and alone. There is ample free time to mingle with the beauty that surrounds us. The retreat culminates in a “Mysterium”: a exploration beyond ordinary words that spans poetry and music, night and day, sound and silence, waking and sleeping, aloneness and communion…
