“Dwell as near as possible to the channel in which your life flows.” - Henry David Thoreau
Gather with us on the banks of the Washougal River for a day-long creative retreat to celebrate the start of summer. Drawing inspiration from the natural world and its infinite wisdom of design, we will explore how the currents of our own lives move through us, offering their own gifts and insights. Through writing and art making, utilizing painting, drawing, collage, and printmaking with natural materials from the magnificent Oregon forest, you’ll have the chance to tap into your own creative source. This soulful gathering offers you the chance to deeply nourish yourself in the supportive, uplifting company of other women. No previous art or writing experience necessary.
Participants will be asked to bring a lunch. Tea and light snacks will be provided throughout the day. All art materials will be provided.

This retreat offers space for creative expression for women of all ages and backgrounds. Due to the limited number of participants we can accommodate, early registration is recommended.
“I recommend this retreat to women who are looking for a safe place to connect with their inner voice and creativity, and also to connect with kindred spirits. Life is such a hectic race through our to-do lists that we hardly ever disconnect not only from electronics, but from our self-talk to do more and be more. Taking time for reflection is so important. Participating in a retreat like this is a way to be kind to yourself through taking time to write and create.”
