Each year at my friend Jim Donovan's Summer Rhythm Renewal Retreat, Jim introduces a theme - this year it was "Freeing Up Space" which speaks to the idea of letting go of things that no longer serve you and making room for the new.
Through an artful exercise designed to allow my workshop participants to "let go" of their fears of art, they helped create the foundation of the mural above.
Each year the Renewal sells out. Each year 60-70% of the attendees are repeats. Each year it gets better and better. In 2012 I will be returning for my 4th year on the Renewal faculty, my 7th year attending overall.
Will you join me?
