EMERGENCE: Coming into Bloom

Deadline March 14, 2024

A weekend retreat with Lisa Kagan and Margaret Hartsook

Drawing inspiration from the natural world and its infinite wisdom of design, we will explore how the signs of early spring move through us, offering gifts and insights as we emerge from the depths of winter. This year, during our annual spring Emergence retreat, we will have the chance to awaken our creative spark through the writing and art process as we tend to ourselves in a circle of care and compassion. Throughout our weekend together we will identify what we are ready to let go of and what we want to plant deep in the fertile soil of our hearts, rooting in our inner strength and tapping into our power to grow and manifest in this time of new beginnings. Through writing and art making, utilizing painting, drawing, collage, fiber arts, and printmaking with natural materials from the magnificent Oregon forest, you’ll have the chance to honor your own process of emergence this spring. This soulful and inspiring weekend in the beauty of the natural world also offers you a chance to deeply nourish yourself with delicious meals, a beautiful retreat setting, and the supportive, uplifting company of other women.

This retreat offers space for creative expression for women and those who identify as female of all ages and backgrounds. No writing or art experience is necessary.

Dates: Friday, March 15th through Sunday, March 17th, 2024
(Our retreat opens with dinner at 6pm on Friday evening and ends on Sunday at 2:00pm)
