Explore making art as a form of meditative practice, embracing the power of present moment awareness and cultivating a mindset free from judgment.

Give yourself the invaluable gift of time –time to rejuvenate, to unleash your creativity, and to reconnect with the inner artist that is all too often neglected or denied. Discover how embracing the present moment through the unfiltered lens of your natural sight effortlessly expands time with a sense of ease and grace.

Balancing stillness and silence with interacting and mindful making with an array of media, including watercolors, pencils, and inks, the Making Art Mindful Retreat, will transform the judgments blocking your creative expression and intuitive spirit.

Guided by the profound experience of accomplished artist and teacher, Catherine Parker, and the wisdom of mindfulness and meditation instructor, Sharn Rocco PhD, you will be immersed in a journey of playful experimentation and silent introspection that will foster a deep sense of curiosity and acceptance.
