PENUEL RIDGE SPIRITUAL RETREAT CENTER
ASHLAND CITY, TN
LIMITED TO 16

An intimate songwriting retreat at the Penuel Ridge Retreat Center in Ashland City, TN (30 minutes from Nashville, TN). We will spend an extraordinary weekend in conversation about finding our truest voices in our writing, singing and in performance, helping each other bring out our best selves on the page and through our voices, creating a collaborative and safe community to stretch our talents, maybe finding new ways of accessing our own ‘truths’. Along the way, you will learn some new tools, maybe meet a new co-writing friend, and perhaps write a song within the weekend. We will spend each morning on the craft of writing and each afternoon on the craft of performance. There will be ample opportunity to write, hike, meditate, retreat as well. Evening song shares, guest artist conversations (TBA).
