TRUE NATURE: Re-Connecting with our Essence

A 3-night Wellness Retreat with Kelly Sunrose to reconnect with our true essence with our through meditation, movement and breath.
 
 
When we increase our capacity for attention and attune the senses, we can more readily receive healing from the elements that surround and fill us: earth, water, fire, air & space. This retreat will invite a bone-deep knowing of our innate connection with nature. During our time together, we will engage in both active and restorative yoga movements, pranayama, meditation and mantra. In addition to this deeply practical work, Kelly will lead lecture and discussion on how the practices relate back to traditional yoga texts and the role of each element in yoga philosophy. At least one of our practice gatherings will take place outdoors, so please bring seasonally-appropriate outerwear. Participants will leave with tools for nourishing each layer of the self with & through the elements.

MORE ABOUT THE HOST:

Sweethome has studied Yoga since 1993. She approaches the practice of yoga and life with devotion and awe. Her style is unique and dynamic, poetically blending vinyasa with yoga philosphy, chanting, pranayama, and meditation. Her desire is to inspire all to experience life with compassion, patience and reverence. Within the Portland-based studios where she teaches (North Portland Yoga, SunGate Studio, and Yoga Bhoga), Sweethome has become notorious for her instinctive ability to nurture, guide and challenge her students through an impeccable combination of both a spiritual and physical practice.

Sweethome’s dedication to the equality, peace and well-being of all sentient beings is felt within each of her classes. After 25 years of teaching, her classes incorporate her learnings from key teachers in her life (Colleen Swantner, Sharon Gannon, David Life and Tias Little, Michael Stone and many more), as well as her connection to music/sound and Qigong.

In addition to her studies with Sharon Gannon at the Yasodhara Ashram in Canada, another notable journey for Sweethome was in 2010 when she traveled to India to study vedic chanting at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram. Sound and vibration have a huge influence her classes, workshops and retreats, as well as within her ongoing journey of self inquiry.

Art Gallery

Meet the newest addition to the family, our new gallery space in a trailer! The Art Gallery lives in a 1960’s Aloha made in Aloha, Oregon! It was rescued from a neglected RV park in the northern part of the Long Beach Peninsula. After lots of TLC, it has transformed into a bright and beautiful open space to reflect a traditional gallery. It is now part of our Artist Residency Program and the new non-profit organization, Sou’wester Arts.

Our first exhibit, Pop Up Trailer Show, opened on August 11th and features original work from participants of our Artist Residency Program. Artists include: John Frentress, Nicky Kriara, Nicole J Georges, Shelley Short, Joe Chasse, Jane E Herrold, Carol Aust, Bradley Delay, J Junkins, Patrick Carrico, Aaron Tate, Erin Engstrom, as well as additional anonymous artists.

The Renown Alialujah Choir to Perform at The Sou’Wester During Spartan Rally

Press Releasemusic2-570x300

The Renown Alialujah Choir to Perform at The Sou’Wester During Spartan Rally

The Alialujah Choir will be performing at the Sou’wester Lodge on July 27th during the first ever all Spartan Rally. They will perform at 8 p.m. on Saturday evening.

The Alialujah Choir consists of a rotating collection of collaborators including the Portland Cello Project, but it’s core is the trio of Adam Shearer and Alia Farah of Wienland, and Adam Selzer (Norfolk & Western) founder of the famed Type Foundry Recording Studio in Portland. The group was founded after coming together to create a song for OPB’s Live Wire! Radio Show’s  “Dearly Departed” benefit album, the band has gone on to record its debut album released by Jealous Butcher Records and garner international awards for the video and song , ‘A House, A Home’, directed by Mark Smith.

The group has appeared on VH1, MTV Canada, & Indie Wire. Its unique sound has been praised far and wide. NPR said, “You’ll notice the sparse nature of the arrangements, which purposely throw the trio’s harmonies into the spotlight.”  Willamette Week wrote, “Alialujah Choir has got the full package: With these talents it’s no surprise the songs are melodically engaging (nor that they are brilliantly produced in Selzer’s capable hands), but the excellent lyricism is a bit surprising”.  Willamette Week also called them, “the best possible kind of supergroup”, and added “This is one of the prettiest albums to come out of Portland”.

The Alialujah Choir is well known for its sparse instrumentalism and harmonized vocals. They have remained committed  “to escaping the commercial pressures of their other bands and return to their love for roots folk music” thus staying true to the art and craft of music making, and have maintained a recording process whereby “no one else could play on the album, or even be present in the studio while the tape was rolling”. This has lead to an equally sparse live show schedule. The Sou’Wester Lodge is lucky to host a band of such high caliber and such rare performances, as they have performed only ten times in three years.  Their music is a bit of a throwback to the sound made famous by the 4AD label in the 1980s and 90s, but with a distinctly Northwest twist.

This first annual “Spartan Only Rally” is first time ever that Spartan trailer owners have held a rally of exclusively the trailers produced by the Spartan Aircraft Company from 1946 until 1960. Also at the rally, will be guest lecturer Shirley Wallace who as a child traveled in an early Spartan Trailer, and even helped her father remodel the trailer, including adding a second floor to the structure.

Organizers of the Spartan Rally are even trying to bring the first Spartan to ever roll off the assembly line “The Silver Queen” to this event, the owners of that trailer are holding a fundraiser to cover the transport expense, and welcome donations of all sizes at: http://www.gofundme.com/31kcyk.

The Spartan Rally is open to the public during the day on July 26 noon to 4pm. Visitors are welcome to come see these amazing vintage trailers up close. Lectures are always free & open to all at The Sou’Wester Lodge in Seaview, Washington. Performers do accept donations and will have CDs and other merchandise available for sale.

Airstream Rally Coming To The Sou’Wester Lodge On July 11-12-13

The Historic Sou’Wester Lodge is hosting a variety of vintage travel trailer rallies all Summer and Fall, with an Airstream Trailer Rally kicking things off on July 11 – 13.

Airstream is the leader of restored trailers, and this rally will be full of amazing restorations and mint trailers from around the USA. Restoring and showing off Vintage Travel Trailers has become almost as popular as hot rod shows over the last decade, and the changing face of “RVing” has become increasingly younger, as the lure of the open road and being able to bring one’s own accommodations has risen in popularity.

The Vintage Airstream Rally is already fully booked Airstream Rally, on July 11 through 13th. While all of the spaces are filled, the public is welcome to come and enjoy these lovingly maintained and restored gems.

Live music will be provided Saturday, July 13 at 8 p.m. by high energy rhythm & blues band, The Resolectrics. (Hear them here: http://resolectrics.bandcamp.com/).

Help Bring the Very First Spartan Travel Trailer to The Sou’Wester!

Help Bring the Very First Spartan Travel Trailer to The Long Beach Peninsula455515_1369442239.8225

In 1945, oil tycoon J. Paul Getty had a vision to create the very best mobile home possible, today Thandi Rosenbaum has a vision to bring that prototype trailer to the Historic Sou’Wester Lodge as part of the first ever Spartan Rally.  Don Denning, Spartan aficionado, is organizing the event, which welcomes all Spartans of all years and in all conditions. There will be trailer tours, a bonfire, and lots of fun happenings.

The very first Spartan trailer with rolled into the world in 1945. It was the brainchild of the Spartan Aircraft Company that built aircrafts during the World War II. After the war, housing was short and the need for war planes no longer a priority, so owner J. Paul Getty produced the first Spartan based the design of one of the companies planes. The Spartan was produced from 1946 until 1960.

The Trailers were built to the highest possible standards, with many deco style design elements. They were considered the “Cadillac” of trailers, some reaching 50 feet in length.

The Historic Sou’Wester Lodge in Seaview, Washington is hosting the very first “All Spartan Rally” coming July 26, 27, and 28th, 2013. They are calling all Spartans and a Spartan fans from across the USA to join them in celebrating this amazing specimen of workmanship and American ingenuity.

They have even been offered the rare opportunity to display the very first Spartan prototype trailer produced. Obviously, these trailers are not easy to move, so the trailer’s owner has created a crowd funding campaign to bring the trailer to the Long Beach Peninsula for this once in a lifetime event.

“While the lodge has provided a creative oasis for over a century, Portland transplant Thandi Rosenbaum and Kathy Duffy are in the process of creating it as an active host for Northwest culture. Typically, coast culture conjures pastel galleries, bead shops and seashell art. Forget driftwood furniture, forget taffy shops, the Sou’wester breathes new life into Seaview, WA and draws a wide audience from the likes of Portland, Seattle and Olympia. “
