Join us for eight days of this deeply needed workshop, a journey of collective healing held outside in forest, field, and orchard.  Explore the possibility of music to calm, open and heal, and connect body and mind to the subtle rhythms of nature, through basic asana, stable posture, pranayama, the science of breath, and nada, the essential vibration, pure sound.

Forest meditations; yoga in the apple orchard; swimming; foraging; willow basket weaving; berry picking; trance-inducing Lithuanian sutartines;  songs from Ukraine, Georgia, and Epirous; tree branch sculpture; gardening; shepherding; and more.

Camp Leaders:

Pavitra and Polash are students and practitioners of Baul, an ancient oral tradition of music, yoga and living wisdom rooted for centuries in the land of Bengal.

Polash is an artist and musician from Bangladesh. He encountered the Baul path as a teenager, drawn to the freedom of the music and purity of the philosophy. His guru Fakir Daulad Shah, was a master of Fakir Lalon Shai’s lineage.

Pavitra is a poet and artist from India raised in New York City. She has been in India since receiving a Fulbright in 2014 to work with shadow puppeteers, cantastoria artists and women storytellers. The journey led to her birthplace, Bengal, and to her guru, Parvathy Baul. Pavitra and Polash have been in Santiniketan, India in a small mud-hut studio, nurturing music, art and Baul practice under the guidance of their gurus. They currently travel between India, Bangladesh and the US, where they continue to sing, dance and practice Baul-Fakiri.

Isaac Fosi-van Wyke is a singer,  writer,and  artist based in Louisville, Kentucky.   His approach to art, song, and life is guided in large part by the teachings of Martín Prechtel’s school (Bolad’s Kitchen).
