Learn about the relationship between Eastern and Western styles of music. This is a hands-on experience with a focus on deepening your experience of playing music. All levels welcome and encouraged.

Join us for a weekend dedicated to deepening your musical practice. Experience the joy of learning and applying techniques in Indian and Western styles of music. You will be learning from world renown musicians on your preferred instrument.

Beginning a new practice can be daunting, especially if we don't know where to start. If you are interested in East and West music rooted in tradition, but open to adaption, this immersion is a perfect launching point. We look forward to exploring your creativity in the beautiful rolling hills of San Ramon in a spiritual setting. All adults are welcome - from beginner to experienced musicians.

Here are just a few of the accomplished musicians who will be conducting workshops during the retreat.
