Accommodations & Meals

Accommodations are $300 for the weekend onsite at the Wildflower Country Inn for the first 11 registrations. All meals beginning with dinner on Friday through lunch on Sunday are included for attendees. Please let us know if any special requirements!


Attendees may arrive anytime after 12:00pm on the Friday of the workshop. We will begin the workshop at 1:00 p.m. on Friday. After dinner, we’ll enjoy a performance by Ian and song circle for those who would like to participate.

We’ll have a combination of class time, one-on-one and small group work with Ian and his staff, along with free time and communal meals on Saturday and Sunday. There will be a performance by participants on Sunday afternoon (your friends and family are welcome). We will end officially by 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Optional acupuncture treatments/energy work with Dr. Cass Naumann can be arranged during the workshop.


The total package is $1200 ($900 for tuition/meals and $300 for accommodations), reserved with a 50% deposit or full payment. The main house has seven private bedrooms, each with a private bath.

There are four private cottages across from the main house that have a kitchen, separate bedroom and then either a futon or trundle in the separate living room. These are available at a $150 premium, OR if you’re interested in SHARING a cottage with another attendee, please email Jodie and we will waive the fee.

Final balances are due thirty days prior to the workshop date. You can register here.

Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is suitable for beginner – advanced songwriters. We will have specific sessions for those interested in more of the fundamentals vs. more advanced work. There will be break-out groups to manage varying levels of skill as far as course content and everyone will have one-on-one time with Ian via a posted schedule.

Singing/playing instruments is not mandatory (nor is performing, though it is encouraged!). This is a very interactive, laid-back atmosphere where fundamentals are covered/reinforced while creativity flourishes.
