Description




This week features traditional Noyes programming in the mornings, and afternoons will focus on technique exploration. We will delve deeply into foundational Noyes Rhythm techniques, taking time for individual instruction and personalized practice, along with opportunities for written reflection. Participants will deepen their confidence in technique practice and will develop a plan for continuing technique exploration throughout the year.

Florence Noyes said that the purpose of technique is to build strength and coordination. Rich in nature imagery, Noyes techniques follow developmental movement pathways, allowing dancers to release unnecessary tension and discover easeful movement. This week is open to all gender identifications and will be facilitated by certified teacher Meg Brooker.  Exploration of Noyes movement lines may be explored in drawing and color work. Artist Dick Widhu will offer an experience in nature-based multi-media art-making. Eric Anderson will be our pianist for classes and evening dance.  

DESIGNATED TEACHER TRAINING WEEK.

Participants should plan to arrive at 2pm on Sunday and check out by 12noon the following Sunday.

Both Cooperative Work and Retreat Participants enjoy full program offerings as well as rest and relaxation. Cooperative Work Participants can expect to contribute 2-3 hours per day (or 12-15 hours over the course of the week) toward community tasks including support for meals, cleaning shared spaces, and other tasks.

This week features traditional Noyes programming in the mornings, with afternoons dedicated to the creation and development of a masque inspired by myth. Explore the nature symbols, archetypes, and storytelling of myth through Rhythm and simple voice work. Our time together in these afternoons will be spent weaving a creation of dance, music, and story to share with our community.

Join with your fellow community members and dancers in the simple joy of moving and vocalizing together, then carry that joy into a story that can’t help but come to life through movement and sound. No prior voice or dance experience is necessary.This week is reserved for women and will be facilitated by certified Noyes teacher Karen FenswickKate Terrell, trained sculptor, painter, illustrator and art instructor, will be the artist present in the schoolhouse to facilitate our ‘overflow’ artistic expression.

Description




This week will feature traditional Noyes programming in the mornings, and afternoons will be dedicated to creative Noyes exploration geared toward early childhood educators and the young at heart. Those of us who spend time with children observe that many of them move freely, and move often, and many are kinesthetic  learners. Those of us in the role of educators of young children are inspired to apply movement as a learning modality, no matter the subject, even if we are not movers ourselves. 

With time to immerse ourselves in nature, and be guided to observe and reflect and embody the rhythms of nature, participants will experience and experiment with the fundamentals of Noyes Rhythm, and be introduced to practical, hands on methods to bring movement into a classroom setting, addressing standards and informing assessments, as well as enhance any time spent with children. All are welcome. Awaken and remember the child within! This week is reserved for women only and will be facilitated by certified Noyes teacher Patricia Carhart CollinsKate Terrell, trained sculptor, painter, illustrator and art instructor, will be the artist present in the schoolhouse to facilitate our "overflow" artistic expression.

Description




This week will feature traditional Noyes movement programming in the mornings and evenings and special focus on being with trees throughout the day. We owe our lives to forests: our breath, our health, our safety. Noyes Rhythm–through deep physical and spiritual channels–enlivens us to nature. This week we will not only live and dance in our wondrous woods, but also dedicate time to become intimate with one tree or small grove on our land. 

We will practice quiet meditation or move with our chosen tree, journal, research tree wisdom of ancient people as well as modern ecologists and really LISTEN to the trees. The forest will become our inspiration for creating in words, song, and art. Martha Mott-Gale, writer of poetry and prose, will guide a process that will help us to write in response to nature. This week is reserved for women and will be facilitated by certified Noyes teacher Emily Mott.

Participants should plan to arrive at 2pm on Sunday and check out by 12noon the following Sunday.

Both Cooperative Work and Retreat Participants enjoy full program offerings as well as rest and relaxation. Cooperative Work Participants can expect to contribute 2-3 hours per day (or 12-15 hours over the course of the week) toward community tasks including support for meals, cleaning shared spaces, and other tasks.

Description

Noyes Rhythm cultivates our natural sense of the rhythms of nature, resulting in freedom of movement and abundant creativity. Rhythm overflows from movement into our daily life, deepening our physical and spiritual well-being. Join us, and rediscover the simple joys of living in the present and feeling the earth under your feet.

The Summer Program at Shepherd’s Nine provides daily meals, periods of rest and quiet, periods of togetherness, and the experience of Noyes Rhythm throughout. Our farmhouse bell signals times of classes, meals and other gatherings. Glorious mornings are devoted to Noyes Rhythm movement classes and readings. Afternoons are for rest, time in nature, music making, artistic expression, other Noyes Rhythm experiences, and camp explorations. Evening dancing is an invitation to improvisational movement with beautiful live music by lantern light or under the moon and stars.

Wednesday afternoons are free of camp activities and a great time to hike or drive locally and enjoy the countryside, restaurants and entertainment. Saturday evening is our community performance night, and Sunday supper is at the campfire with songs. We recommend a Sunday to Sunday, weeklong stay. Each week has a unique focus.
