Sing your Soul

4-Day Intensive Retreat for Performers

July 14-19, 2023

"
Bouros Seaview Retreat is a magical place on the sea where participants can develop and express their creativity through movement and song.  From early morning exploration of the fruit trees to midnight swims in the soft Mediterranean waters, participants will join leaders and others in developing creative skills while surrounded by a natural environment.  Spontaneous performances among the villagers in the town of Karystos in the style of a flash mob will occur.  
This four day retreat will help performers explore, create, play with experiential learning in the group without the limitation of predetermined unresponsive workshop form and structure.  Like nature, the the sound travels free, tuning into the collective connection understanding that we are interconnected extensions and instruments of nature.
Today more than ever, our souls yearn for freedom with a deep calling for connection to each other in the rhythm of nature and for being fully expressed.  Come and join this decadent 4 days of full self-expression, delicious Mediterranean farm-to-table tastes, soulful expression, playful voices and embodied movement…

Flash Vocal Movement Mob

Flash Mob in the Village

This stone treasure by the sea will house our voices and souls, as we share these gifts with the audience, as we co-create together in song & celebration and a rehearsed flash mob in the town will lead audiences to the castle.
