This 6 day retreat is designed to support you in a journey through expanding fields of awareness from personal, to interpersonal, to transpersonal. 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.
