Retreat/Workshop Summary

The labyrinth is a symbol of the Spiritual Journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art is the perfect metaphor for the contemplative experience and walking a labyrinth is a perfect metaphor for one's spiritual journey.

During the retreat, there will be time to explore the meaning of the labyrinth as you walk the sacred space and as you draw your experience of your labyrinth walk.

At each art session, you will have the opportunity to create an oil pastel drawing. As you begin to draw with the oil pastels, you will quickly discover you can trust your inner intuitive process to create a drawing from your heart-centered perspective you had no idea you could complete when you began.

Expressing your personal Spiritual Journey through contemplative drawing provides a way to look at your life experience in a non-linear, non-verbal and spontaneous way.

For participants with no art-making experience, you will have the opportunity to discover your creativity in a safe, supportive environment. For experienced artists, the retreat will expand your creative experience to include a meditative approach to your personal expression.
