October 1 - 3, 2021

Come and experience your free voice within a safe circle of women singing in harmony. Replenish your WELL. And ignite your JOY!

All voices welcome. No singing experience necessary.

Vanessa holds a safe space for women to voice ourselves out through the joyful vehicle of group singing. She invites curiosity around singing and offers playful ways to awaken to the body’s natural desire to create sound.

Toning, chants, and accessible harmony singing invite us all to blend our unique voice into a healing, affirming collective sound. All sounds are good sounds. Singing is our birthright.

"Since I participated in the Singing from the Well Retreat,

I have been leading songs

in my own retreats and absolutely love it.

I'm still learning but not waiting to be perfect to share the magic of group singing.

Thank you Vanessa!"

"Windhorse is a treasure and it is a privilege to participate in the positive energy here."

~Susan McEachern

As someone who is relatively new to singing out loud in a group, the retreat offered me a safe, supportive and respectful place to discover my own unique voice. It was a great opportunity to just enjoy singing with others. We were surrounded by the beauty of nature and served delicious, nourishing food. It was an amazing experience and I'm hoping to go again next year.
