CREATIVE LIBERATION

WITH MELISSA MICHAELS AND FRIENDS
JULY 26 – 30, 2020

A community rite of passage culminating in a performance ~ deconstructing the roots of violence along with artistically tending the soils of peace.

Dancing along the edges of our collective becoming, we will creatively transform borders that separate us into bridges that connect us. Golden Bridges … Ones that are built through expressive arts rituals and built upon of the principles of self-care, truth-telling, inclusion, vulnerability, sustainability, and love.

Together, we will creatively move into our own stories while listening deeply to the stories of others across race, class, ability, gender, religion, and culture. Each day will build upon the next, allowing our bodies, hearts, and souls to guide us to a place where we see patterns in our collective story, culminating in co-created performance pieces offering pictures of what is possible on our path of collective peace making.

Experience in the expressive arts and mature integration of one’s personal biography are prerequisites. Applicants will be considered and responded to within three weeks of initial application.

Free Gift!
