What are we going to do

Welcome to the Soul Tones Retreat!
Get to know the kantele, the traditional Finnish instrument in very meditative and deep way. Our course is going to be held in Rääkkylä, in the arms of Lake Saimaa, in the soothing energy of a pine forest. In the course, we learn the basics of playing, enjoy the beauty of the tunes in kantele-mindfulness exercises, and make a relaxing sound journey that combines sound bowl with kantele harmonies. We treat ourselves with gentle yin yoga in easy morning exercises. We enjoy the amazing nature, sauna and good company.
You can come to this course without having any previous experience in kantele, or in other instrument playing or yoga. Experienced teachers Sari Kaasinen and Pinja Sointu will take care of you throughout the weekend. You also don’t need your own musical instrument or yoga equipment.
We will start Soul Tones on Friday 15.10. at 6pm and we will close them on Sunday 17.10. 14 o'clock.
