Regenerations
Cultivating Connections to Earth, Art & Activism

Add to your calendar
Date: August 4, 9:00 am
Details: To regenerate means to bring into renewed existence, to replace that which is injured, and give it a new and more vigorous life. Absorb yourself into Nature. Be still. Reconnect. The Regenerations series is an active investigation of our relationships to Nature, community, creative expression and outreach through outdoor immersion, writing and visual art.

In this all- day backcountry excursion, this particular Regenerations session works with the specific theme of “Connecting in Nature: Stillness & Noticing.” Slow down. Tap in. And allow the modern world to fall away. Through silence, stillness and observation, reconnect to the deep resource of Nature and the roots of your relationship with it. Process what you find there through imaginative visual and written art exercises that allow your senses and the floodgates of creativity to open. Experiment with free flow writing, drawing and making art with the land.  More about the Regenerations series can be found at www.earthartactivism.com.

Instructors: Ivy Walker & Molly Murfee.
When:  August 4th, 2018
Time:  8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Cost:  $120
