2023 Touch Drawing Gathering
July 10 - 15, 2023
The 23rd Annual Gathering
This six-day intensive provides a deep immersion in the process of Touch Drawing. Facilitated by its originator Deborah Koff-Chapin, this event is oriented to people who feel called to share the process. The experience provides fertile ground upon which to cultivate your own way of integrating Touch Drawing into your life and work.
The Gathering has a sacred and joyous quality. Held within the beauty of the forest and the safety of the circle, you are invited to embody your creative soul. Touch Drawing sessions are deep and expansive. Deborah holds space with the beat of a large ceremonial drum and crystal bowls. Reflective writing, movement, vocal toning and group sharing are woven through each day. These creative processes compliment the drawing experience, and help you explore the images that emerge. Afternoon quiet times and a day of silence allow for integration and renewal. Through the week, our focus moves from personal to interpersonal and transpersonal. This culminates in a drawing session in the center of the labyrinth, dedicated to a planetary focus.
If you are a therapist, educator, counselor, artist, social worker, intuitive, health practitioner, body worker, spiritual director, healer, life coach, expressive arts facilitator, community volunteer or student, you will be empowered to use this dynamic creative process. Deborah is happy to talk with you about your specific interests. Find out more about this event.
