Meditation and the Spirit of Creativity

This is a silent retreat for writers, painters and anyone wanting to deepen their contact with the creative spirit. You do not have to have previous writing or painting experience - just the passion to explore! The focus of the retreat is on the dynamic principles of spiritual and creative unfolding: how meditation supports the creative process and how the creative process enlivens spiritual awakening. The focus is very much on process rather than the pressure to produce a result, artistic or spiritual. Alternating between stillness and creative activity provides fertile ground for the flowering of one's unique expression.
