Redshift: The band Redshift is a fusion band in the truest sense of the word. We blend the best of jazz, blues, and funk, all with a rock edge that can be danced to.

Jazz you can dance to, Funk you can think about.

The enormous, country style Old Stable is the perfect event hall for large events and workshops. Its all country style with an enormous stone fireplace, high rafters, full theatrical stage and generous dance floor. Big enough for any event, its 4800 sq ft allows seated dining for 350 guests with a total capacity of 475 guests. A complete on site large kitchen can be used for cooking classes or makes fresh food and ready for fast service. There is also a separate standing bar with its own spacious mingling area. With a character straight out of a Victorian hunting stables its, the thick wooden bead-board and antique barn hardware are all authentic reminders of it’s historic bygone era.
Even deeper into the Old Stable is a converted night club area with booth seating within deep converted horse stalls. Roomy enough to seat 10 per booth, the night club has its own small performance stage. This provides a remarkable opportunity for you to host a large event while also catering to a quieter more intimate conversation area with their own separate entertainment venue or out break space. For workshop presentors, single session workshops can be created for inviting the local affluent holistic community, further reach the broad audience.
Whether your program calls for tables and chairs or ample room to move about – or both – the Old Stable is perfect for your needs. In addition, just past sliding stable doors is a juice bar and meeting space that can serve as a breakout room as well.
For an exclusive wedding, the Old Stable is a destination genuine and rare character, a great contrast for a formal wedding, large public festival, large yoga or workshops, or boisterous dance ball.

One of the most challenging health concerns in the U.S. is obesity. The number of overweight and obese adults and children in this country has risen dramatically in the last 5 years. It is truly a problem in epidemic proportion. Eating disorders like anorexia and bulemia have also increased as people's relationship to food has become so imbalanced. With weight increasing, type 2 diabetes and heart disease have risen as well. There is no question that diet and lifestyle play an enormous role in prevention of these health concerns as well as the reversal.
This special weekend program will give you the tools to find your optimal weight with minimal effort. We will look at how to address blood sugar issues the natural way as well as how to reverse heart disease using food, natural remedies and lifestyle. The program also includes 2 cooking classes where you will see and taste specific dishes and remedies to create the balance we are looking for.

Healing through sacred sound is a traditional shamanic medicine path that has been widely used by every indigenous culture in the world since the beginning of time to maintain wellness, balance, a clear connection with the nature and the spirit realms, and a full union with all of life. Pravada Sound Healing weaves the heart of this ancient practice into a new method of self-healing and empowerment that supports mindfulness, spiritual awakening, full connection with the human, nature, and spirit realms, and tremendous personal transformation in daily life.
In this experiential workshop, Nina Umai Spiro, ( founder of Pravada ), teaches us to re-connect with the innate wisdom and power of our own sacred vocal sound, as it is a natural vehicle for becoming present in each moment, awakening our most authentic selves, and living in full union with all beings.
While honoring every group member as a sacred teacher, we will experience the awakening and complete transformation that " full spectrum vision " ( tm ) brings, as the unique ability of our own voices leads us deeply into shamanic sound altered states.
In these natural states, we are easily able to arrive fully in our bodies, learn to hear, trust and follow our own wisdom and guidance,... heal fully,...receive guidance from other realms, ...and live in complete partnership with the earth, spirits, and all our relations.
When we are more fully present, we automatically return to a healthy balance with all of life, rejoin our original state of oneness, ( where we are held lovingly in balance by all beings ), and re-awaken to the beauty and guidance that always exists within and around us.
In our circle, we will each learn follow the natural wisdom that calls us home to be the radiant beings we are here to be in this lifetime,...as we learn about our unique individual gifts, and receive precious healing blessings from our many relations in all forms.
" Prepare to be moved when Nina Umai's fluting enters you. She gives sweet voice to the earth, the plants, your bones, sticks, and stones. Delicious and deeply nourishing." ~ Susan Weed, Wise Woman Tradition, author and herbalist. ~
"In the hands of Nina Umai Spiro the Native American flute becomes a powerful instrument of healing and contemplation.....When she plays the flute, she goes deep within, and draws the listener in with her." ~ Daniel Jarvis - flute maker, teacher, and concert performer ~

Have you noticed?
In today’s fast-paced and stress-filled world, many of us find ourselves living lives of quiet desperation. How often do we find ourselves regretting the past or worrying about the future?

It is not for the faint of heart! We are asking ourselves to change how we see ourselves and the world. Participants will learn to live in the living presence openly, honestly and compassionately by staying in touch with the Light of Our Authentic Self.
