For folks in the midwest I'm excited to share two upcoming opportunities. If you or someone you know is in the rush of creating things—art, public change, startups, or faith communities— you know the importaince of resting and taking a look at the overall process of your work. You also might have discoverd the significance of what Richard Rohr has called active contemplation.
In May I'm leading two retreats designed to help creatives and activists in observing their process and taking up contemplative practices to address creative block or simply sustain balanced, generative work.
In Lousiville, Ky from May 1-3 I'll be facilitating Drawn In Retreat for Creatives curated by the fine folks from The Soul Care Project. And May 15-16, I'll be curating the Chicago Life as Art retreat sponsored, in part, by the Chicago Sunday Evening Club.
I hope you'll consider being a part of one of these great events, half of the magic is the variety of talented people who come together to share and reflect on their work. Stay tuned for details about upcoming retreats in Charlotte, Cincinnati, and LA.
