Use active imagination to enter into a written dialogue with the images you create to discover the meaning they hold for you. Establish a practice of using an art journal to reflect upon your life’s meaning.

This weeklong retreat will help you feel restored, refreshed and revitalized. Take a break from your responsibilities to take care of yourself. Learn creative tools for emotional health and relaxation that you can use in your daily life and work. Create in community with others.

Playfully explore how different art media offer different vocabularies for personal expression and meaning making. Create a visual journal of images and writing that can be added to over time. Experience the stages of the creative process, working through frustrations and blocks. Learn about the science supporting the connection between creativity and emotional resilience.

Students will work in a group setting and have the opportunity to share and receive creative inspiration from others.

This retreat is especially useful for those in care-taking roles and those in the helping professions.
