~ Come and Join Us In Magical Assisi, Italy ~
Are you seeking to awaken your senses, enliven your creativity, and experience a deep connection with nature?
Have you been wishing to travel to an ancient city and to be immersed in hundreds of years of history, culture, medieval architecture, and magic?
Would you love to join with like-minded others in a completely unique experience combining art, vibrational healing, and connection with the Earth?
What would you do if you could find the place of balance and expansiveness to see all the possibilities of creation in front of you?
Diane Green is a renowned artist and creator of The Green Studio School, where her mission is to merge the visual arts with the healing arts.
Jocelyn Mercado is the founder of Sacred Planet, where her mission is to guide people to connect with nature, experience magic and mystery every day, and create a life they love.
Diane and Jocelyn are joining together to offer you a unique retreat opportunity in June 2018. This one-of-a-kind experience is especially designed so that you can restore, awaken and create.
Join us in the magical and sacred city of Assisi, Italy. Assisi offers the perfect setting to work the light that is within all of us. The energy of St. Francis and the great painter Giotto will also be your guides. They will join Diane and I as magic makers that will lead you on a journey that will connect you to your source where your particular expression can be found.
Are you ready to become quiet and listen? Enter the magic with us!
This will be an intimate gathering, open to only 9 to 12 students.
You can choose whether you prefer a 10-day experience, June 9 - 18 ...
Or extend your stay to a full 15 days, June 9 - 23.
Luminous Assisi, Art and the Imaginal will be like no other retreat! This offering combines Diane's exquisite energetic & artistic talent with Jocelyn's deep connection to nature, magic, and the imaginal realms.
We will guide you through a journey of opening to possibility, creativity, and mystery.
We'll gather in a traditional embroidery studio, next to an ancient courtyard, to create our art. In the process of creating your artwork, you will connect inward to find your fullest expression. Using mixed media and paper, you will witness the outpouring of energy that will offer you a reflection of yourself.
Together we will access the ancient energies of Assisi, explore the history of St. Francis and his time, and connect with Mother Earth. Shamanic journeying and special group ceremonies will help you to go deep and create a sacred container for our expansion and growth. Together we will explore the limitlessness of what we can become.
You will emerge refreshed, recharged, and prepared to welcome in new & exciting possibilities on your life's journey.
Here are just a few of the daily activities that we're planning for you:
Create artwork that is a reflection of your soul
Walks into nature following the footsteps of St. Francis
Obtaining messages from the art in Assisi
Creating mixed media art that draws from the ancient materials that Assisi is built of
Sharing vibrational history in the Basilica
Shamanic journeying through new portals of space
Learn new practices for healing & restoring oneself, which can be taken home and used again & again
Food to enliven and provoke the senses!
All of the lodging is located in charming buildings near the Assisi town center, within easy walking distance of one another and easy walking distance of the locations where we'll be gathering for our shared time together. Lodging is available in both hotels and apartments. Almost everywhere in Assisi seems to have spectacular views, but certain hotel rooms & apartments have especially nice views, and those are included in the Premium pricing.
All participants are responsible for the cost of their own meals. Breakfast is provided in many (not all) of the accommodations. We will have 2 or 3 group dinners together, in which we'll enjoy the sumptuous gourmet offerings available throughout Assisi. We will offer recommendations for other restaurants & cafes that you might enjoy.
