Expressive Arts Retreat at Hot Springs Canyon, Cascabel
November 4-6, 2005
During this two-day retreat, you are invited to rediscover your connection to the natural world in this beautiful desert canyon. As our human species has done across cultures throughout time, we will use music, movement, creative language and image-making to explore and express our relationship to the land. Not an artist, musician, poet, dancer? Don't be concerned. Just be willing to let yourself play in new ways.
The retreat will include both solitary and group times. We will camp out near the windmill ramada, cook our meals together outside, and share an evening campfire.
Participants need to be prepared to camp in Sonoran desert fall weather, which can be anywhere from hot and dry to cold and raining.
You will bring your own lunch food and we will share planned potluck meals for breakfasts and Saturday dinner.
Group Retreat activities will start at 10:00 am Saturday, November 5, and end at 3:00 pm Sunday the 6th. Participants are invited to arrive on Friday afternoon, for more extensive personal outdoor time, to help us slow down from our busy lives and center into a quieter place. Friday arrivals will need to show up well before sunset (by 5:00 PM), to find camping sites and set up tents, etc. Saturday arrivals will have time to set up camp before dinner.
Retreat leader: Eleanor Dart. Eleanor is an artist, musician and poet who uses the Expressive Arts in her work as both a counselor and leader of retreats and playshops.
