Singing The Inspiration Of Ossabaw Island

April 21 April 24

The land as messenger of the music

Thurs. April 21-  Sun. April 24 2022

with Gayanne Geurin & Elise Witt

Friday April 22 is Earth Day, an opportunity for us to bring full awareness to this beautiful piece of Earth.  Ossabaw Island provides a unique ecosystem to connect deeply with nature, the human story of this place, and the creative expressions that unfold.

Elise and Gayanne will lay a framework for connecting with each other and the land/water as all of this offers a conduit to our creativity.  

We set off on our journey, arriving by boat!  Our activities over the weekend will include:
morning meditation, chant and qi gong, making music with songs and improvisation, touring the Island, listening instructions for nature encounters, Walking Songs, vocal exploration, being mindful of the human story of slavery and capitalism on Ossabaw Island, Open Space  and gathering for delicious organic local meals by Chef Leslie Varnadore.
