March 22-24, 2019

If art leads you to a deeper spiritual journey or your spiritual journey leads you to be more creative or if you just want to explore the relationship between creativity and spirituality, this retreat is for you. Through all forms of creativity we find opportunities for deepening our spiritual journey. In a creative community we will delve into the interrelationship between creativity and spirituality through a variety of art forms - possibilities include: quilting, weaving, sculpting with clay, painting with watercolors, knitting, crochet, cooking/baking, origami. Each area will be led by a specialist, and the time will be rich with worship and creating. The weekend culminates with a whole group sharing of our creative process and our creations. This multigenerational weekend has become one of our most popular, so we're in two houses. Register early if you have a favorite room or a specific building.

Register by March 8: $280-$200/adults; $125/ages 13-22; $70/infants-12; $175/commuters

After March 8: $260/$145/$90/$195

NOTE: facilitators may register without making a deposit payment. Simply put "0" into the amount you are paying when it prompts you to pay.  That should do it.  Or email Sharon at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
