Retreat

Sacred River Arts Immersion

August 1-8, 2021

Join us for all or part of this week-long immersion on the Anahata Riverfront celebrating collaboration, creativity, and beauty.

Join us in welcoming an array of Artists in Residence leading a variety of creative experiences. Each day we begin with a guided yoga class and a creativity circle with time for journaling and connecting.

We continue with a morning workshop lead by an Artist in Residence and then a delicious lunch. In the afternoon, we can continue our learning adventure with a variety of choices — including assisting an artist in their onsite project such as mural making, community macram√©, tile mosaic and more. The afternoons are also open time for hiking, swimming, kayaking, open studio with a variety of materials, various ‘pop-up playshops’, or receiving a wellness session from one of our spa practitioners.

Each afternoon before dinner we have a time to come together for a reflection circle and after dinner there is a bonfire with singing and music making, flow arts (poi, or ‘fire-spinning’), drumming, ecstatic dance, and more.

We are sharing 3 delicious organic, mainly plant-based meals together outside of the River Kitchen. Much of the produce will come from Anahata’s gardens!

Camping included – bring your own tent – or indoor accommodations for an extra fee.
