Handpan Retreat

Join us for an immersive long weekend with Australia’s most experienced handpan educator, Adrian J Portia.

November 3rd – 5th, 2023

Adrian has been playing the handpan across the world since 2014 and is regarded as one of the most talented handpan players unanimously. He has taught countless workshops and retreats, has a personal course on Master the Handpan, and has a breadth of knowledge that we will be tapping into over this weekend.

The retreat will be held on a private property in Avoca, Victoria. We will provide a safe and insulated environment where you can feel free and comfortable to immerse yourself into the teachings that Adrian will be offering each day. You will be supported with 3 nourishing meals per day, luxurious glamping, time and space, all of which to facilitate your exploration into your inner Handpan artist and find your voice on the instrument.

What to expect:

  • Workshops each day covering comprehensive content suitable for beginners of all types
  • Evening performance
  • Intimate group setting
  • Nourishing meals (catering to your dietary needs)
  • Accommodation in luxurious same gender bell tents with privacy focus (2 to 4 per tent)
  • Shared bathroom and shower facilities

You will be supported throughout the retreat to ensure you are comfortable and able to follow the content. This retreat will be tailored towards beginners across the spectrum. If you are brand new to the instrument, never seen one in the flesh or if you’ve been practicing for some years, you will have something to gain from this intensive educational retreat.
