In our time together, we’ll use writing and the imaginative arts as a tool for exploring our experience of the Covid-19 Pandemic. We invite you to come with a sense of “beginner’s mind” to this retreat: whether you are a novice, “dormant,” or experienced writer, you already have all you need to fully participate. You will be spending this time in a combination of individual reflection, writing, creating reflective visuals and sharing in small and large groups.
As in all of our retreats, we hope you will emerge with “more energy, more openness, with grace, with ‘soft eyes,’ with increased clearness that allows your heart and others’ hearts to break open into greater capacity and healing and wholeness.”
The dates for the retreat are:
- Thursday, October 8th, 1-4 p.m. EDT: Navigating Our Way Through the Pandemic, Part 1
- Thursday, October 22nd, 1-4 p.m. EDT: Navigating Our Way Through the Pandemic, Part 2
- Thursday, October 29th, 1-2:30 EDT: Checking in on Creative Commitments
