Event Description

In this experiential weekend workshop, we will use creative process to explore imagination and “third space” at the group level. Through individual creative expression and intuitive ways of knowing, we will explore the “imaginal world” of the group itself. When groups of any size come together in meaningful ways for a shared purpose, there is a larger wisdom available to draw upon, a wisdom that lies within the center of the group itself. Using collage, painting, storytelling, metaphor, group process and the natural world as our tools, you will have your own personal journey through creative process, tapping into new avenues, skills, and yearnings that you may not have been aware of. As a group, we will create a sturdy container to experience creative process as a vehicle for planetary transformation, deeply listening for what wants to be birthed through us.

Feel free to bring any of your favorite art supplies, along with a personal journal or writing tablet. Also bring your current inspirations. This workshop is highly recommended for those involved in social change work, as well as for artists and educators. This is a workshop for creatives, visionaries, and people who find themselves frustrated by traditional tools and methods. Especially welcome are those who “don’t have a creative bone in their bodies.” For those of you who have been secretly holding a deep creative inner vision, now is the time. Join us as we re-open the realm of possibilities and potential.
