A Journey of the Soul Through Sound, Song, Art, and Activism Retreat
Are you longing to ‘Find your Voice’ to speak on matters of the heart and soul? Are you craving a playful encounter with beauty and community through song sharing and art-making? Are you seeking a safe place to work through a creative block, or an energy block, that is in the way of your full embrace of yourself? The world needs your unique gifts, your voice, your song!
This playful workshop will build a safe and boundaried space for participants to explore their gifts of speaking, singing and creating, so they can move through self-limiting beliefs about voice, and personal agency.
Diving into the range and depth of their voice, using Barbara McAfee’s 5 Elements Framework, and using various art mediums (water colour, clay and collage), participants will come away from this event feeling re-invigored for their work in the world, and re-engaged with their voice and sense of purpose.
This retreat will be facilitated by Dianne Baker. Dianne Baker is a counselling therapist by training, and a facilitator prepared and mentored through Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage and Renewal. She has been leading retreats in Canada and the US since 2013. Dianne grew up attending Naramata summer programs and is a graduate of Winter Session in 1979. Having left Manitoba after 35 years, Dianne currently resides on The Sunshine Coast, in Davis Bay, BC. She has lived and served ecumenical communities in Trinidad, and in Palestine and Israel.
