Season of Healing Retreats
Our physical world offers much solace from the chaos of life’s stress. Each season offers a theme for our contemplation and growth. Healing Icons® classes invite you to travel into creativity hand in hand with nature. As you work inwardly, nature will express her grand show of transition outwardly.
It is our hope that you will choose to experience the felt sense of the seasons with our arts and healing community. You will learn healing practices, art and writing techniques and connect with others on the cancer journey, all of which will sustain you across the seasons of your life.
Spring Retreat: Cultivating Optimism during Difficult Times
Self Reflection. Personal Enrichment.
As springtime unfolds, our spirits are invigorated by the promise of the season – opportunities for growth. Step into your creativity and we will show you how to use a wide variety of materials to create a mixed media Healing Icon®, a visual symbol of your renewed spirit.
Summer Retreat: Rekindling Vitality & Strength
Explore the Unfamiliar. Discover Joy.
Realize with What Matters Most.
Summer is a time of growth, fruitfulness and passion. Celebrate the joyous vitality of this season by learning the craft of expressive painting and collage. Through our playful methods, you will reconnect with your unique authentic voice.
Autumn Retreat: Understanding Uncertainty
Letting Go. Harvesting Gratitude. Restoring Balance.
Autumn is to reconnect with our inner voice and take stock of where we are in our lives. Through the quiet practice of drawing mandalas, sacred circles, we will learn how this process can lead us into wholeness and balance.
Winter Retreat: Coming Home to Ourselves
Remembering. Releasing. Igniting Possibilities.
Quiet winter – a time of hibernation, silent reflection and going within – a time to digest what has happened during the year. To process our journey, we will draw from within, exploring the craft of creating a visual journal.
“The primary benefit of practicing art, whether well or badly, is that it enables one’s soul to grow.”
