Embodying Creativity

Life is an art form and virtually everyone is a creative individual.   There is a creative wellspring of universal patterns in us, continually emerging up from our depths.  Each of us has a unique expression of this wellspring, which filters through our individual essence.   In this creativity retreat, you will learn new ways of tapping into that creative wellspring and clearing away the blockages that keep you from expressing your unique creative essence.

Two creative workshop leaders: Tracey Schmidt - award winning photographer, author of I Have Fallen in Love with World, her first book of poetry, and the southeastern-touring museum exhibit Awakening of Turtle Island: Portraits of Native Americans. (Traceyschmidt.com).
Chelsea Wakefield, LCSW, Jungian therapist, author of Negotiating the Inner Peace Treaty and the creator of the Luminous Woman (ChelseaWakefield.com)
