Magic and Music in the Garden: A Rare Family Music & Art Weekend with the Banana Slug String Band
Celebrate summer in the land of rejuvenation with a unique collaboration between the world-renowned Banana Slug String Band and Esalen's Gazebo Park School environmental education teachers.
You’ve been busy all year; take the time to drop into your sense of wonder and reestablish your loving bond with each other and with the earth.
Friday, Aug. 10 through Sunday, Aug. 12, Esalen offers a rare treat. Celebrate summer in the land of rejuvenation with a unique collaboration between the Banana Slug String Band and Esalen’s Gazebo Park School environmental education teachers. The group will use music, theater, puppetry, poetry, arts, and games to deepen your connection to this magical earth. The program will culminate in a performance by the budding children stars and the Banana Slug String Band.
"Together we’ll create a community of families to laugh, connect, and renew," says co-leader Joanna Claasen. "We'll explore dance, family yoga, harvesting and eating delicious organic food, hiking among the redwoods on the Esalen grounds, a night walk, stargazing, and plenty of time to soak in the baths. We will watch the sun set on the ocean bluff and feed the goats and chickens at Gazebo Park School."
This workshop is open to children of all ages. Participants under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information please visit http://www.esalen.org/
