The Vision

We believe in art that deepens our relationships to other people and to the rest of nature. We view devotion as gratitude in action and tread a path of service and reverence to life, visible and invisible.

The Space

Our events are immersive and participatory gatherings in unique environments bringing together art and mindfulness. We offer time and space to connect with creative spirits, artists, designers, change-makers, and storytellers from diverse backgrounds.

The Practices

Our art workshops will be focused on theatre, song, and environmental art. The rest of the day will include various community building and mind-body practices. Keep scrolling down to discover your guides.
