Play & listen to a variety of enchanting sounds. With devotion, anybody can learn circular breathing, and sustain the tone indefinitely. This breath-work is deeply profound, and is a powerful tool for the transformation of consciousness.
My deaf mother at the last didgeridoo immersion, feeling the vibrations of 15 didgeridoos!
We'll talk about tribal culture, ceremonies and stories. Send them reverence and gratitude. Discuss the implications of cultural appropriation, and do our best to honor the culture with this incredible tool.
Enjoy camping in a gorgeous serene land with mountain vistas, quiet country-side, streams and forest and a swimming pond in the oldest mountains in the world,
Join the 8th bi-annual Immersion. Spend time in ceremony and spontaneous play. Walk away with your handmade didgeridoo.
(5% of profits will go to The Healing Foundation, a non-profit that helps Aboriginal survivors of the stolen generations to heal inter-generational trauma. It's not the ultimate solution, but it's something to try to give back.)
The Agave stalks are tall flower blossoms, the plant creates only one in it's life(up to 100 years long, thus the other name "century plant") 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.
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.
And then, after carving your wooden mouthpiece, sanding, and shaping 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.

Didgeridoo Immersion Retreat:
Make Your own Agave Didgeridoo
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 deeper dive into the vibrations of this amazing tool. This entire package, for a similar price as simply purchasing a didgeridoo(also an option).
Listen to his music here: soulmedicinevibrations.bandcamp.com/album/the-symphony-of-serenity
Here is the website of the lacquer that we will use www.Vermontnaturalcoatings.com
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!
