“The grace to be a beginner is always the best prayer for an artist. The beginner’s humility and openness lead to exploration. Exploration leads to accomplishment. All of it begins at the beginning, with the first small and scary step.” - Julia Cameron

I loved the opportunity to be introspective through the writing reflections and answering specific, thought-provoking questions. Your calm and encouraging manner, combined with your artistic skills helped me learn to combine photographic images with other media to add layers of meaning to my project. I really enjoyed gathering in the supportive group context and sharing our stories.

We are excited to offer in-person workshops and retreats again. Registration is now open for our 2023 programs.

I really appreciated the dedicated time for creative work, the open and accepting environment in a safe group space and the provocative themes.
