As summer winds down and fall approaches, I'm looking forward to evenings spent embroidering, designing and producing bags and kits, and reflecting on how creativity can infuse more of my everyday life.
In that spirit, Lanny Mihardja of Handcrafted Mindfulness and I have created a retreat in the village of Occidental, in West Sonoma County, CA. Creativity & Mindfulness is the first in a series of retreats to learn new creative skills, meditate, and spend time in nature, for inspiration, self-reflection, and renewal. I will be teaching written embroidery and sharing my experiences working with women in Transylvania. Lanny will lead meditation exercises while participants knit, crochet, or practice the handcraft of their choice. A massage, delicious food, hiking, and free time will round out this small group retreat.
