Even if you don’t think of yourself as an artist, come discover how your creative life can nurture your relationships, work, and faith life.
Our retreat includes inspiration, conversation, and prayer to help you get (re)acquainted with your creative self.
You’ll have space, time, and quiet to work on your own projects, or join in one of the optional exercises designed to get your creativity flowing.*
We’ll gather in Creative Clusters (à la The Artist’s Way) to celebrate our work. This retreat will renew your enthusiasm and return you to the world ready to find inspiration in every day of your life.
