This women's retreat focuses on intentional making, creative dreams, and the role of storytelling for our personal visions and goals. Living Story is a dynamic, adaptive interpretation of life in action, where what we make and do is primarily shaped by our value for cultivating inspiring relationships with people, practicing cultural curiosity, and experiencing peace and insight in nature. The art of living story rises from a willingness to risk creative empathy and movement beyond existing (and often limiting) designs.
