Summoning the Artist Within: A Radical Exploration of Creativity

Apr 21 - 26, 2019 Begins in 2 months
with Kim Krans

Where does creativity reside? Who is the artist within? 

Amidst the complexity of life, the inner artist is often left behind. Yet the mythic, mysterious, and immensely powerful creative force within every person (yes, every person!) contains innately transformative forces that can heal both our inner and outer worlds. To find new solutions and envision a more expansive world, we must traverse the mystery of the inner landscape and summon the artist within.
