About the Great Rhythm Revival

A Message from Our Director...

August 2-5, 2018 Sherman, NY at The Heron

Greetings!
Each year I direct several retreats designed to bring like-minded people together to unplug from the everyday world, learn something new, connect with friends, and to enjoy life deeply. On August 2-5, 2018 one of these events called the Great Rhythm Revival will commence in the gorgeous rolling hills of Western, NY near the town of Sherman and Lake Chautauqua.

At the Great Rhythm Revival, you will experience a wide range of invigorating workshops including:
Drum & Chant, Ecstatic Dance, World Drumming, Sound Healing, West African Dance, Yoga, Shamanic Journey, Afro-Cuban Drumming, Energy Medicine, Meditative Painting, Sound Healing, Sacred Intimacy, Women's Sacred Circles, Intro to Men's Work, Transformative Writing, Laughter Yoga and more.

In the evenings we dance, play music for you, light up the adjoining woods with an expertly sculptured fire circle.

Lastly, we eat some of the tastiest and healthy food around. Much of it grown on site in our Revival garden. Camping is free or you may stay at a local hotel or B&B. Though the event is outside, we are under the cover of large tents. If you're looking to experience something extraordinary, The Great Rhythm Revival is for you.

Hope to see you there,  -Jim Donovan
