Do you love making art but struggle to overcome the obstacles to actually do it? Have you been longing to come together with an intimate group to build a deeper community than is possible in larger retreats? To support each other in making art in a way that's more integrated into our daily lives? To explore the ongoing connection between our spiritual and creative practices as it is unfolding over time?

Let us join together as creative folk who meditate and meditators who like to make stuff.

Let's gather via Zoom for two hours on four Saturdays to:

  • build community
  • make art
  • interweave our spiritual & creative practices and chew on the challenges that arise from that tapestry
  • come together in symbiotic support and mutual inspiration, in all our vulnerability and prowess
  • for the benefit of this beautiful planet and all beings

Does this idea make your energy go up?
