A three-day contemplative art-making immersion
In medieval times, the plague set the stage for the Renaissance. How can we, today, find our inner renaissance? Instead of asking ourselves: What will come next? Let’s pose the question: How will I participate in this revolution? What note do I wish to play in this emerging, improvised symphony? How can I respond creatively and with the full range of my paradoxical emotions at a time when so many are fighting to survive?
As we draw near to the elections and the time of year where light begins to wane, join the Artmonks and Joel & Michelle Levey to connect with what matters most and make art from that place. As we acknowledge the deep challenges of this time — ongoing grief, rage, and trauma of the Movement for Black Lives, the pandemic and climate crisis — let’s practice embodiment of our authenticity, resilience, and hope.
This uplifting and dynamic response to disrupted times offers you a rejuvenating weekend experience featuring:
• dharma talks by Joel & Michelle
• guided and silent meditation
• guided group creative practices
• solo time to dig into your creative practice (and away from screens)
• daily guided embodiment practice
• a supportive group
The Artmonk Retreat explores the interaction of contemplation, creativity, and community in a 3-day program designed to access deeper levels of personal & creative insight, and carry deeper wisdom back into your life, relationships, community, and world. Whether you are a professional artist or seeking personal development (or both!), this experience is an opportunity to deepen your connection with the source of your creativity.
We will delve into the overlap of contemplation and creativity, drawing inspiration and teachings from the natural world. From a place of silence and stillness, we will create and explore together. We will explore embodiment as a mode of transformation, healing, and accessing creative flow.
This program springs from a foundation of silent sitting meditation, punctuated with practices of singing, chanting and movement meditations. Solo creative sessions are supported by guided creative practices to activate & affirm your creative spirit.
