Wide Circle Weekend

taught by Jenni Sturgis


Prerequisite: Creative Arts Discovery & Practice

This  weekend immersion experience is an opportunity for sustained art making within community, designed to deepen and stretch your creative practice while being encouraged and inspired by fellow artists. Facilitators provide opportunities to connect with and drop down into to the unconscious, the here and now, the dream-space, and the flow – a river of urge and desire, never the same twice, but alive with possibility, energy and nourishment.

Wide Circle, offered 6 times a year, is designed for those students who have completed Creative Arts Discovery and Practice (CADP) and seek a sustained and robust, deeper dive into the Art & Soul practices. The bulk of the weekend is dedicated to individual work-time, with break-out circles of experiential learning and connection. Process-focused play, movement, sounding, writing, meditation, breath-work, and non-judgmental witnessing weave a framework within which all artistic explorations, urges, imaginings and endeavors are welcomed and honored. It is rigor and play, circle and soul, tangle and unwind, seek and find.

Students should bring a water bottle, journal, snacks and sack lunches, as well as art supplies, materials, and ongoing projects with which they want to work. Art & Soul studio supplies will be available as well.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” ~Thomas Merton
