EXPERIENCE

Curated by Swan Alyon

Six revitalising days amidst nature

to connect with fellow creative spirits.

Time to remember what matters

A time that you will remember

A few days outside of time

Devotional Arts

We believe in art that deepens our relationships to other people and to nature. We offer time and space to cultivate togetherness and reverence for life through art.

Our devotion is gratitude in action: it is a path of thanksgiving that inspires us to be in loving service to the world. We view artists as agents of peace.

We approach art forms as contemplative practice and contemplative practices as art forms. The retreat itself is a living, breathing work of art.

Reconciliation

We regard reconciliation as a path towards greater understanding, harmony, and wholeness that embraces difference and paradox.

We draw inspiration from Kintsugi, a Japanese technique of repairing broken pottery adding powdered metal to highlight the cracks.

Just as Kintsugi symbolizes the acceptance of imperfection and the celebration of an object's history, turning brokenness into beauty, we believe divergent paths can give rise to fertile crossroads.
