Workshop Details

Take your seat in a circle of songwriters and join us as we delve into the emotional heart of our personal story, and translate those experiences into song. Learn to cultivate your own unique songwriting voice through writing exercises, song assignments, group performances, co-writing, and constructive feedback. Explore the tools of the craft: verse, chorus, and bridge, melody, rhythm, and rhyming. Break open your emotional heart and learn how to tap the wellspring of all songs. Come roll up your sleeves, do the work, and bust through old limits bringing forth the deep elusive songs of your life. This workshop is for individuals who have had some experience in songwriting and are working on refining their musical voice. It is not required to play a musical instrument, but if you have one, bring it. There are also evening jams.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
