Expressive Arts REVIVAL:
Rekindling the Imagination

Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Howard Thurman

And this is one of the gifts of expressive arts - the gift of creative expression that brings one into personal aliveness.  A “revival” is defined as, “a restoration to bodily or mental vigor, to life or consciousness.”  This two day revival is an opportunity to come together as companions on an expressive arts journey and restore and reconnect with our own muse, our inner inspiration.  Previous expressive arts experience not necessary, but a readiness and openness to explore and express through the arts is required!

What shape waits in the seed of you
to grow and spread its branches 
against a future sky?

Is it waiting in the fertile sea? 
In the trees beyond the house? 
In the life you can imagine for yourself? 
In the open and lovely white page on the writing desk?
