Touch Drawing Gathering 2018
July 8 - July 13Varies
Join us July 8—13 for our 21st Annual Touch Drawing Gathering.
The Gathering is a six-day intensive that provides a deep immersion in the process of Touch Drawing. Held within the beauty of the forest and the safety of the circle, you are invited to embody your creative soul. Oriented to people who feel a calling to share Touch Drawing, this experience provides the fertile ground out of which your own way of facilitating can grow.
The Gathering has a sacred and joyous quality. Words fail to adequately describe it. Drawing sessions are deep and expansive. I hold space with the heartbeat of the drum, crystal bowls and vocal toning. Reflective writing, gentle movement, vocal practices and group sharing are woven through each day. These creative processes compliment the deep drawing sessions and help you explore the images that emerge. Afternoon quiet times and a day of silence allow for integration and renewal. In the course of the week, our focus moves through an organic progression: from personal, to interpersonal, to transpersonal. Together we generate an atmosphere that enlivens and inspires.
The Gathering is for people who are interested in bringing Touch Drawing into their work in their own unique ways. I am available to talk with you about your particular interests during mealtimes, and encourage attendees with common interests to connect. An online community will support you after the Gathering. 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 in these fields, you will be empowered to integrate this dynamic creative process into your work.
