Infinite Crescendo Retreats are deeply immersive experiences. Situated on gorgeous and potent lands and taking place over a handful of days, we arrive together with the intention to experiment, imagine, activate, allow, and integrate. While each retreat centers on several transformational rebirthing breath journeys led by Infinite Crescendo co-founder Carly Jo Carson, the days and nights are ripe with potential for group vocal exercises, spontaneous instrumental jams, sound healing, active imagination, freeform dance, site-specific workshops, yoga, and more. And yet, prior experience with any of the above is not in any way a prerequisite. The goal is to find unexpected harmony as a metaphorical practice for finding harmony in other parts of our lives. The goal is to laugh, to cry, to find ourselves, to lose ourselves. To meet each other, to meet ourselves. 

Come raw and new and ready. 
Expect beauty, depth, and connection.

This retreat surpassed my wildest expectations. From the brilliant facilitation, the safety of the container, the sweetness of the community, the potency of the breathwork, to the absolutely gourmet farm to table cuisine, this retreat left me feeling uplifted, transformed, and with a new collection of beautiful friendships. Highly recommended.”

“Heart Song Retreat was a magical, heart-opening and expansive experience for me. Carly led the retreat with humor, wisdom, sensitivity, and generosity. Her curiosity, passion, openness, presence, and creativity were infectious. She was kind, encouraging, and deeply insightful, holding space for each of our individual needs and always taking time to check in and connect one-on-one. I especially loved the return to ancient rituals of connection, like song circles, tea ceremonies, and ecstatic dance— it was such a joy to share conscious space with others in this way after a long and difficult year of isolation! We laughed, and cried, and sang, and breathed, and danced— and I felt safe, held, and uplifted throughout. There was a perfect balance between structured group activities and free time to rest, journal, read, integrate, and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings. Vanessa’s organic vegetarian meals were truly delicious — they somehow seemed to get better with each passing day! I left the retreat feeling deeply nourished and inspired. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough to anyone who feels called!”

“This retreat was a game changer. I came into it knowing my resistance to, and dislike of, breathwork. I also knew the power of the practice. And I’m so happy that I went. I can now say that I accept and even enjoy breathwork (with Carly Jo)! She is a gem and truly special in the way she creates a space for everyone to BE who they are and express themselves as they are. This is more than just breathwork though; there were both thoughtfully curated and impromptu activities that made this a truly special experience. Words can’t do the retreat justice … you must attend to experience the work, community, incredible food, and utterly magical location. Just go!!”
