PDF Flyer

In the depths of Autumn, we will pause to rest, reflect and renew during a spacious day of art, self care and luxuriating in a community of creative women.  Through visual art-making, improvisational movement, writing, poetry, and mindfulness practices, we will honor the aspects of our lives that are calling for nourishment, healing or transformation. As we shape artful engagements with our life stories, we will cultivate contemplative practices to sustain and enliven us as we transition into the winter season.  There will be time to linger outdoors in the peaceful landscape of our retreat setting and to enjoy a delicious catered vegetarian lunch. For those wishing to extend their retreat time, overnight accommodations are available at an additional cost.

Location: Bridge Between the Worlds Retreat Center, Keswick, VA. For overnight accommodations, please contact the retreat center for more information.

This retreat is FULL. If you would like to be added to the wait list, please contact Jena at:
