Brave Voice in Kansas City

Join us for a replenishing Brave Voice retreat in deep autumn, happening at beautiful private home in the Kansas City area on Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Fall is a time of transformations, and this special one-day event is designed to bring participants ample opportunities to create new work, consider new approaches to writing or music already in process, and renew their vision and voice. Come write, sing, making new friends, enjoy luscious and healthy meals and snacks, and discover what you have to say or sing to yourself and the world.
