Create to Liberate

With Khari Wendell McClelland and Rebekka Goldsmith

August 27 - September 1, 2020

This program will either be moved to a virtual gathering or be rescheduled to another date in 2021.

We are currently working out all the details. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you so much for your patience, support, and understanding.

Creativity is not reserved for the professional artist. Creativity is a means to meeting our individual and collective challenges, and cultivating joy. It can also be an incredible tool for group cohesion and community building.

Whether for your own personal development or for working with groups, we will explore themes and practices that engage body, mind, and heart. These activities will build a foundation for creative facilitation techniques and effective engagement with groups of people, as well as support your own personal creative growth.

There will be a mixture of large and small group-work, as well as solo time, with space for rest and relaxation in a beautiful natural setting.

During our time together we will:

  • Deepen our understanding of power
    • Explore different types of power
    • Locate where power sits
    • Explore breaking the rules that keep us small
    • Bring awareness to how power affects group dynamics, and how to shift this
  • Connect to tools of personal and collective liberation
    • Connect to gratitude, joy, and a sense of wonder
    • Connect to our strength, courage, and vulnerability
    • Connect to our creativity
    • Connect to our individual and collective stories
    • Connect to ritual and reflection
    • Connect to nature as a repository of wisdom
    • Connect to embodied knowing
    • Connect to deep listening
  • Use creativity as a method of facilitation
    • Learn how creativity can be a means to meeting our individual and collective challenges
    • Explore how to weave connection with creative exercises
    • Apply creativity to team-building and group cohesion
