Samos Yoga and Singing Retreat, June 1-8, 2017

Yoga and Singing in Samos, Greece
June 1 -8 , 2017
with Mina Semyon and Guillermo Rozenthuler

A week of yoga and singing in an unspoilt and stunning location!
The venue is set on a remote seashore peninsula in an off-the-beaten-track part of Samos- a green Greek island away from the mainstream tourists.
Marnei Mare is a complex of 3 luxury villas with an open-air and indoor space for yoga and singing with fantastic views to the Aegean Sea. There are 2 private beaches in the complex, as well as an infinity swimming pool. From there you can also enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen, and the peace and quiet of nature’s sounds without any man-made noise pollution.

Spring dates for the Daring and Sharing Laboratories

Dear Improv and Circlesinging friends,

thank you for your sustained interested in these improv and circlesinging sessions, for turning up with enthusiasm and consistency. I feel privileged to be working regularly with such a varied and creative group of singers, and the atmosphere of the sessions has been one of deep listening, curiosity, uplifting collaboration and collective musical intelligence emerging. This is precious, way beyond that I could have dreamed of when this (ad)venture started off last year.

here are the Spring dates for the Daring and Sharing Laboratories upcoming.

Saturdays 16 April, 7 May, 11 June, 9 July
11 am- 2 pm

The core elements  will be Circlesinging and VoiceOrchestra techniques, grooves and harmonic sequences, with two distinct and complementary objectives:
*to create strong, supportive, interesting backgrounds for the singers to explore and develop solo improvisation.
*to empower singers to create, orchestrate and conduct their own circlesongs and other forms of collaborative music.

if you prefer to, you can visit the doodle link below with the dates and let me know your availability (your name won’t be disclosed) .There will be some new dates if these fill up, or  I ‘ll offer an alternative if most of you can’t make one of them.

http://doodle.com/poll/vk3i536u69bmxurv

and if numbers continue to grow, or people want longer sessions, we’ll add the afternoon sessions (I’m aware that some of you would prefer this timeslot)  and also give you the option to stay for the full day for a discounted rate (£40)

where? Bickerton House, 25 Bickerton Rd N19 5JT  (buzzer: studio 22 john oakley)
how much? £25/session. Advance booking for block of 4 sessions: £80

Advance booking per session available at my website:  http://www.guillermo.co.uk/product/laboratory-1-session/

to secure a place, you can pay £15 in advance and the rest on the day  http://www.guillermo.co.uk/product/workshop-deposit/
please email me back to let me know which date/s  you are booking for

On June 20-24, Circlesinging at SOAS summer school : http://www.soas.ac.uk/music/summermusicschool/20jun2016-circlesongs.html
On June 29, I‘ll be running a session on Circlesinging and collaborative music making for Sound Connections, a wonderful organisation that provides training for teachers and music teachers wanting to develop and expand their skills. Here’s the link : http://www.sound-connections.org.uk/events/an-introduction-to-circlesinging

that’s all for now…look forward to singing with you again this spring, and whether we will or won’t…
happy singing!
