Creative Nature Connection

   Creative Nature Connection is taught in-person and is designed especially for teachers, students, green professionals and contemplative practitioners.  Workshops of varying lengths explore the transformative power of sensory connection, presence and intuition to deepen natural relationships through easy to learn and teach, painting and drawing encounters.  Designed to be time flexible, these workshops meet the demand for flexibility in school and professional environments. In the past I have offered student workshops that run for one hour a week for 6 weeks, and adult sessions that are 2-3 hours/session, full day and two days long. Workshops have been warmly received not only locally in the Victoria area and the BC Gulf Islands, but also in Kelowna, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Belize, Portugal and Ontario.

   Classes range in length from 1 hr weekly for 4-8 weeks, to 2 hours in one session, half day, full day and week long. Check the events listing for upcoming local classes. Please contact me directly if you have an idea for a workshop or professional development program in your area. I work with meditation retreats, outdoor programs, public schools, expressive arts groups, universities, and nature and art education professionals. I also partner with facilitators of meditation and expressive art to provide a holistic nature-based experience for retreat participants.  Contact me to learn more about what might be possible for your institution, retreat or staff development program. Let’s co-create something special together.

When I finish painting it gives me a feeling of release.  I feel calm and satisfied.  It is an outlet for stress, and it enables me to connect with something greater.
