4:00 pm - 12:30 pm
For four days, come and spend a spacious time in creative practice. Bring whatever art you practice and receive spaciousness, spiritual reflection, and creative community for yourself and others in an artist’s retreat. Spend dedicated time for visual arts, singing, movement, writing or song composition. Individual and community-oriented practices like theatre arts, choral, or performance art are ways to deepen and refocus on the particular art you want to do.
Facilitated by Nan Goodship and Murray Groom
