Lifelines: Summer Drawing Retreat - A 4 Day Drawing Retreat


Lifelines is a sacred, sensitive art practice that weaves together movement and drawing. It provides a space for opening our senses and becoming more present with ourselves, our materials and each other. In the nourishing season of summer, together we will connect with our senses and explore the richness and vitality of what it means to be drawn by life.

At a glance

Participants will gain
- Develop a fluent and rich drawing language
- Cultivate a capacity to move freely between felt presence, sensing, and gesture
- Leave feeling nourished and resourced with a deepened sense of belonging and connection

With both hands moving in clay, charcoal, natural pigments and ink, we will discover how to relinquish control upon the quiet meeting ground of the page. Anchored in the presence and gentle compassion, the intimacy we experience in drawing from life is an invitation to open and enliven our senses.
