UNI-VERSE RETREAT FESTIVAL

MANIFESTO

A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest.

A kind of optical delusion of consciousness.

 

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

 

The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.


(Albert Einstein, 1954)

 
UNI-VERSE

"A verse is a section of a song that's often followed by a chorus. The verse is the main part of a song. When two or more sections of the song have basically identical music and different lyrics, each section is considered one verse".


If we take a moment to observe Nature we will find out that everything co-exists and

collaborates in a common environment and every being has its own sound and vibration.
It is only with us, humans that we have forgotten how to co-exist while being able to generate our own unique sound/melody or verse!

The way Music is able to create harmony and connection between people is where we draw our inspiration from and this is the message we bring at this gathering.

 

Welcome to four days of immersion in the world of  The Music Medicine where all experiences, activities and people represent an aesthetic and practical aspect of the project and its values. An immersion in Music, Singing, Dancing, Art, Breathing, Meditation, Healing Practices, Talks and Workshops with the intention to take you into a journey of self-discovery and self-expression.

 

Our intention is to open space and to create the journey together with our instructors, artists, musicians and participants, to build a feeling of comm-unity and to remember oneness and that we are all parts of the same a UNI-VERSE, one united piece of Music!

 
ACTIVITIES

We want you to experience liberation, a sense of freedom and opening up to your creative and musical potential. For this reason, we have prepared a program that includes a vast variety of artistic and musical activities!
