Roots, Song, Prayer, and Breath



- Healing Plants and Voices -

with Susanna Raeven & Maryn Azoff

September 25 – 27, 2020

Join herbalists Susanna Raeven and vocal transformation coach Maryn Azoff for a healing weekend of music and medicine at Raven Crest Farm in upstate NY.  
Connect deeply with the fall season in a beautiful nature setting and learn how the healing power of plants can support our lungs, strengthen our immune system and help us to stay healthy through the winter months.
Enjoy medicine foods for the autumn season, harvest medicinal roots and mushrooms with love and respect, make your own winter elixirs and stir the caldron to cook delicious immunity broth. Practice gratitude for the gifts of Mother Earth and and enjoy walks in our beautiful woods.
Just as plants are great healers, your own voice and breath can be winter medicine, lift your spirit and warm your soul. Maryn Azoff will guide you through the realm of your own healing voice. We will share singing circles around a sacred fire and learn medicine songs to accompany our root harvests.
The forest will wear her gorgeous fall colors and our woodland temple and dojo invite to be still and meditate.  We will share warming and nourishing meals made with farm grown food and sip delicious chai teas and golden milk. Who wants to come?
