Tending the Soul Fires

Women’s Art & Mindfulness Retreat

Saturday, June 23, 2018 (10 am – 5 pm)

 PDF Flyer

As summer begins, we will pause to rest, relax and luxuriate in a day of art-making, self care and creative community. Join us as we tend the soul fires, exploring what longs for expression, release and transformation within us. We will breathe, move, dance, draw, write, and shape artful encounters with the spacious landscape surrounding our studio. Creating from this embodied place ignites an alchemical process whereby we free ourselves from limiting perceptions or outworn habits, calling forth a renewed capacity to live passionately, courageously and authentically.

Optional outdoor art-making and lunch al fresco will complement the day. Art materials and snacks provided. Bring a journal or sketchbook, pen or pencil, and a simple lunch. No previous art or mindfulness experience required. 

Location: Polarity Barn, 6482 Dick Woods Rd, Charlottesville, VA

Fee: Early Bird: $160 (before 5/31); Regular: $175 (after 5/31)

BEAUTY, ART & SOUL 

A Spring Retreat for Women

Saturday, May 19, 2018  (10 am – 5 pm)

PDF Flyer

Beauty inspires, nourishes, heals, and restores. Join us for a day of art-making, self care and enriching connections with creative women as we dwell in the spacious retreat of a tranquil studio surrounded by mountains and sky. Through art-making and mindfulness explorations, we will breathe, move, draw, sculpt, write, and shape artful encounters with the landscape around us. Art-making from this soulful orientation awakens our senses, enlivens our hearts and expands our perception of beauty. As we slow down, resting into the rhythms of nature, we discover images, poetry and creative practices to support us in artfully embodying our everyday lives.

Optional outdoor art-making and lunch al fresco will complement the day. Art materials and snacks provided. Bring a journal or sketchbook, pen or pencil, and a simple lunch. No previous art or mindfulness experience required.

Location: Polarity Barn, 6482 Dick Woods Rd, Charlottesville, VA

Fee: Early Bird: $150 (before 4/19); Regular: $175 (after 4/19)
