MOTION AND METEORS AT THE YUBA RIVER

with Nina Wise
Friday, August 10, 7:00pm – Sunday, August 12, 4:00pm
Su's house  |  13745 Empress Road  |  Nevada City

During this weekend retreat, we will practice Motion Theater on the Yuba River and spend a night watching the Perseid meteor showers.  We will meditate and chant outdoors, practice Motion Theater games in the natural environment, and create improvised performances on the granite boulders, in the rushing waters and still pools. There will be open time for solo contemplation and play as well as organized group activities.

Fee includes all activities/teaching, dinner Friday night, late night hot drinks and snacks for the meteor shower.

To keep the price down, we ask that you make your own sleeping arrangements. There are plenty of local campgrounds if you’re wanting to go rustic and a wide range of airbnb’s if you want to go more upscale. There are three tent sites and one studio cottage on site for an additional fee. We will provide support in connecting participants so they can share housing.

Sliding Scale $275–$350
