Throughout herstory, women all over the world have gathered in circles, tended hearth fires and called forth their innate creative and healing powers through story, art and ritual. In this mid-winter women’s retreat, we will use painting, movement, writing, poetry, and mindfulness practices to awaken to the depths of artistry, body wisdom and resourcefulness within us. This is an invitation to enter into a he(art) inquiry, whereby we attend to what longs for nourishment, reflection and integration through contemplative arts practices that support insight, healing and transformation.
We’ll explore what it means to live wholeheartedly as we take time to rest into spacious silence and play, enlivening the long days of winter through our colorful expressions. Whether you are new to the expressive arts or want to dive deeper into your discoveries, this retreat offers a soulful and generative space to cultivate embodied and artful ways of tending the creative fire in everyday life.
