February – September 2015
Deborah is taking a sabbatical from travel and facilitating Touch Drawing.
She will focus on exploring new possibilities in her own art and music. Her other priority will be developing better support for Touch Drawing Facilitators. An exciting vision is emerging to replace the 2015 Touch Drawing Gathering. We will come together as a community to hold regional Touch Drawing retreats all over the world, with a live online linkup. These could be as simple as one-day Touch Drawing circle with friends.
Contact The Center for Touch Drawing if you are interested in organizing an event in your region.

With Touch Drawing at the heart of each day, Deborah weaves deep sharing, vocalizing, movement and writing practice for a sacred expressive arts experience. Time in silence and nature balances the rich sense of creative community. People travel from all over for this! The Gathering has happened every summer for 18 years. After Deborah’s 2015 sabbatical, the Gathering will be different. In 2016, there might be new conditions for attending, such as an online program to support deepening your own Touch Drawing practice and bringing Touch Drawing into your work. It is time to bring the Gathering to the next level as a Facilitator support experience.
