VIBRANCE Expressive Arts Retreat

*with Module II: Rise  - 60 hr. Teacher Training option that applies toward mentorship program hours for VIBRANCE Guides who wish to work towards becoming a VIBRANCE Instructor

Bali is a culture that honors and uses music, art and dance to call in wisdom, share stories, create community, and facilitate healing.  In this retreat we will tap into these Balinese traditions as we embark on a creative journey of self expression that will lead us to a deeper understanding of self.    


VIBRANCE Expressive Arts Module II retreat/immersion blends high-quality instruction with high-vibration experiences to support your evolution as a teacher, musician and life artist. 

In This Retreat/Module you will experience and learn:

  • To dance through inertia & imitation, allowing your imagination and intuition to guide you into the land of inspiration.

  • To free your body from the stories held in your tissues; to transform fear into courage, curiosity and fascination

  • To dance with fear, anger, sadness, joy, and the empty place of compassion

  • To write poetry, to dance and sing to that poetry, to turn your stories into art

  • Vocal Empowerment and SoulSong techniques and exercises to uncover and strengthen your authentic voice

  • How to create foundational rhythms for singing and dancing

  • Nada Yoga: Sound Healing techniques and tools

  • Bhakti Yoga: mantra and kirtan

  • Poetry writing

  • Songwriting

  • How to listen for the music that is already being made around and through you all the time so that the whole world becomes  a song. 

  • Spinning & dancing with Rumi

This retreat/immersion will focus on the 5th chakra - Vishuddha which is the gateway chakra between the body and spirit.  Opening and exercising this chakra strengthens the connection with your own inner truth and your ability to express it in the world.  Our voices carry the vibrational imprint of our soul. As we connect to and open our voices so too do we connect and open to our true nature.  


We come together for these 9 days in the spirit of Love that is BHAKTI YOGA.  Bhakti yoga, like any other form of yoga, is a path to self-realization, to having an experience of oneness with everything. And so we devote ourselves to the practice of expressing ourselves truthfully, to vibrating with one another, and loving one another as we come closer to knowing ourselves and the ONE vibration from which we all came.  Uncover the song in your heart.  Awaken your authentic voice.
