“To speak of knowledge is futile. All is an experiment and adventure. We are forever mixing ourselves with unknown qualities.” ~Virginia Woolf
These words speak to the quality of the journey introduced in this weekend art/spirit retreat. Ingrid will lead participants through a kaleidoscope of colour, form, movement, and poetic & visual imagination. A series of creative encounters will engage the participants in a physical and creative self-reflective journey: one imbued with the sacred, contemplative and restorative atmosphere of space, nature, and supportive community. The group will be guided through experiences in movement, art and meditation, fostering the potential for creativity in everyday life. This interdisciplinary journey seeks to spark and liberate the poetic and visual voice of participants as individuals and as the collective. Practices of renewal and revitalization help creativity to emerge and to be freed from the obstacles held in physical tension and internalized critical narratives. The course is rooted in a somatically based practice involving a series of movements, stretching, walking, and inhabiting postures consciously within the art, nature, and adventure of becoming.
Open to artists in all media.
