Didgeridoo Immersion Retreat:
Make Your own Agave Didgeridoo
A Three-Day Immersion into playing & creating, learning & sharing, exploring & experiencing the incredible resonance of humankind's first musical instrument...The Didgeridoo. May 3rd -5th!
This experience offers a depth of connection with this communal exploration of ancestral vibration. Together, with reverence to the original tribe, we forge our instruments through the flame.
Play with & listen to a variety of enchanting sounds, overtones, grumbles, vocals, toots and more. With devotion, anybody can learn circular breathing, and sustain the tone indefinitely. This breath-work is deeply profound, and can be such a powerful tool it can transform your life.
We will talk about the native peoples, their ceremonies, their stories. Send them reverence and gratitude. Enjoy camping in a gorgeous serene land with mountain vistas, open air vintage barn, and a swimming pond in the oldest mountains in the world,
And then, after carving your wooden mouthpiece, sanding, and scraping the inside, we lacquer your didgeridoo with natural and sustainable whey(by-product) based coatings, decorate with ferns or lichen etc. and you take your new instrumental ally home.
For the entire weekend, and taking your own didgeridoo home, the cost is $400, and there are only 12 spaces total,
To secure your spot, a $180 deposit is required.
The Agave stalks are tall flower blossoms, the plant creates only one in it's life(up to 100 years long) to get it's seeds as high as it can before it dies. The agave we'll use are hand-harvested by Kennedy himself, selected for excellent back-pressure(makes playing/circular breathing easier), and vary between 5-7 feet tall, giving you the option to choose a higher or deeper pitched didgeridoo. He makes the 4,000 mile round-trek to Sedona, AZ where the quality of agave surpasses Florida agave.
Kennedy OneSelf has been playing the didgeridoo for 8 years, and making them for 7 years. This has been such a big focus and cultivation in his life, that he has become quite adept in both making and playing them. This is a rare opportunity to have a full initiation into the vibrations of this amazing tool. This entire package, for a similar price as simply purchasing a didgeridoo(also an option).

Here is the website of the lacquer that we will use
For years, as a deep purist, Kennedy only used raw tung oil to coat his didgeridoos. They were rough and tacky, but completely natural! These days, he uses poly-whey and eco-poxy, which are 90% natural, and far more sleek and clean. These didgeridoos end up being totally water proof, they have been left in the rain! They are quite durable and have an Amazing tone. Agave didgeridoos have an earthy tone that is far superior to bamboo, comparable to hardwood, and immensely lightweight!
