In this weekend retreat, the studio has vanished and with it, the polarities between art and life, product and process. In the studio's place stand the woods, mountains, and rivers of Vermont. Participants will walk in the woods at sunrise, sunset, midday and midnight. We will watch, listen, and feel as the metaphors, like living drawings, arise
Come rest in the arms of stillness, in the woods by the brook. Here on your own silent retreat you will have all the time and space you need , free of daily distractions, surrounded by nature, to get to know the truth of who you are.
This weekend retreat, Oct 4-6, 2019, uses drawing as a metaphor for life, death, birth, and rebirth.No previous experience required. Come draw into the dark and draw into the light. Discover what happens when you let go and let the drawing draw itself!
We will go deeper into letting go. As we allow the creative process to carry us in its endless flow of new , different, everchanging , births and deaths and rebirths, we discover what it is that always remains the same.
We will focus on learning the skill of simultaneously holding the opposites: the still emptiness and the always moving fullness, the shaped and the shapeless, the finite and the infinite. We will watch as our understanding of death shifts.
Have you had enough? Want to run away from home? Do it, for just one night! This is a wonderful antidote to the fast paced, urgent demands of everyday life. Here, you you can finally pay attention to yourself. Here there is no right and wrong, everything is welcomed just as it is, and there is room to play.
