This is an intensive weeklong songwriting workshop and yoga retreat offered on in the heart of Navajo Nation in the rural community of Many Farms, Arizona. Workshop features daily songwriting assignments and guided mentoring from instructors, morning yoga classes, nightly song circles, and a final performance open to community members. The experience also includes a traditional Navajo meal, an introduction to the culture, history and sovereignty of the second largest Native American nation, and is hosted by a prominent local Navajo family on their ancestral land. Workshop is modeled on co-writing, and participants are paired with a different co-writer each day. Retreat includes lodging (tent camping), freshly catered meals, and all instruction. Facilities are rustic and are located on a working ranch, and you should be prepared to camp (showers and limited wifi available).  Experience is immersive and you are welcome to participate in ranch and community events to the extent you are comfortable and able. Air conditioning provided in main communal space, and shade structures provided for each tent site. Open to songwriters of all levels, beginner to experienced. Also open to writers of all ilks (poets, fiction writers, spoken word artists) wanting to cross into songwriting but desiring mentoring, encouragement and inspiration to do so. Workshop limited to 12 participants. Cost Includes food, tent camping, and all instruction.
