Deanne 248 628 1887 Hi there folks, particularly WOMEN! There is going to be a fine retreat in Michigan this weekend, and we would love a few more to join us. Price is half off, and scholarships/worktrades are also available. So don't let money keep you away. Sculpting Sacred Space ~ A Women’s Weekend Retreat Hand-Sculpted Space is possible! In this nourishing rural setting, you will have the opportunity to explore how natural materials can be used to beautifully shape interior and exterior spaces. Imagine sculpting a niche, rounded corner or arched doorway. We will be spending some time in the Strawbale Studio, an enchanting thatched roof, sculptural building made of natural materials. This “Place for the Soul”, constructed primarily by 4 woman, with the help of many other, is an inspiring example of creating a sense of reverence. During the Retreat you will have a chance to shape a model or sculpture out of an earthen mix - - which you can take home with you. Both indoor and outdoor space will be explored, and the group will collaboratively create a space together. There will also be time for reflection, walks in the woods, or conversations. You are invited to bring words, images, music or objects which represent the sacred, or remind you of the kind of spaces and places you would like to have in your life.
