Meet Me in Retreat

As much as love sharing my work online and gathering in a virtual space, there is something so very special about gathering in person and holding sacred space together.


Whether for an afternoon, an hour, or a weekend, I work with you to plan retreats and workshops that are right for your space and audience.


Retreat is spiritual self-care

When we paint, pray, and explore the sacred feminine together, we nourish our souls, release what’s no longer working, and move into clarity about who and what we are.

I teach and facilitate groups in a variety of settings: churches, college classrooms, yoga studios, public libraries, and back yards.


Workshops, talks, and retreats I’ve lead include:

  • Praying With Icons, offered at a Lenten supper program.

  • Spiritual Self-Care for Women, because you need to fill your well.

  • Paint Your Prayer workshops that hold space for you to enter into meditative art-making.

  • Women of Holy Week, a talk on the sacred feminine within the Christian tradition.

  • Untangling Mary Magdalene, a workshop exploring the myths, misunderstandings, and importance of the Apostle to the Apostles, which included discussion and meditative art-marking.

  • Journaling the Chakras, an energy awareness Saturday workshop.

It’s been two weeks since you were here and each day I thought about writing to you and thanking you again for the lovely program you brought to St Paul. I’ve heard so many wonderful comments from those who attended. They loved the art activity as well as the slideshow and lecture/discussion…I was really pleased by how many shared questions, comments and talked about their art that day.
