Dahlonega Spa Resort Retreat Spring 2017

December 7, 2016  |  Category: Featured, Retreat, Workshops

March 31 – April 2, 2017

Near Atlanta, but a world away from the noise and sprawl. Here you can rock on the porch and take in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sip herbal tea to the soft tinkle of tuned chimes. Wander wooded trails.  Circle the labyrinth. Soak in the outdoors, literally, in a Jacuzzi at the forest’s edge. Unplug in rooms with neither telephones nor televisions. Indulge in a healing massage or an aromatic body wrap. Or both. See how a yoga and qigong will help rebalance mind, body and spirit. Enjoy an inviting opportunity to simply be.

Drumming is a great way for a community to come together. Every organic being in the universe has a natural rhythm. Drums in the Round led by Glenn will help you reconnect with your own rhythm as well as connect with others in the circle.

Some studies show that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system, produces feelings of well-being and even has a calming effect on people suffering from Autism, Alzheimer’s and various traumatic experiences. Glenn leads a circle of drummers and percussionists all levels (no experience necessary) through hand drum basics (technique, posture, tones) and several traditional rhythms. Feel free to BYOD!

World Music Performance, October 16, 5-6 PM, $30

In general, music utilizing a wide range of cultural instruments, styles, and ethnic influences is called “World Music”.

Glenn performs his unique solo show “Music From All Sides” featuring a fusion of traditional and modern instruments and styles.

Guaranteed to be an enjoyable evening!

Music Meditation – Sonic Relaxation (MMSR) is a musically guided, meditative journey through the color of sound.  Soundwaves generated from beautiful, acoustic, world instruments act as carrier waves for intention (from the practitioner to the participants) of relaxation and well-being.

Each session is an adventure into the realm of sonically stimulated meditative travel.

Participants usually experience deep relaxation, active sleep, or visionary dreaming during this MMSR session.

MMSR has two components (detailed below):
1. The passive music relaxation session
2. The optional interactive lecture/workshop

1.  Participants sit or lie down with eyes closed while being sonically bathed with soothing sounds of a collection of wind, string, and percussion instruments from around the world.
2.  Participants learn some of the history of musical healing, practice a few techniques (simple rhythmic movement, various vocal tonings, relaxation breathing)
