Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible.

Richard Kamler

We invite you to lean into the boundless worlds of the imagination. In the process, you might experience how healing spaces open up between the thinking heart and the feeling mind—between the inner and outer realms.

If you feel drawn to embark on a journey of self-discovery, one of these circles might be for you. We’ll engage in a variety of creative, artistic expressions, such as writing, journaling, painting, moving, and making or listening to music. The emphasis is on creative play, and all levels of experience are welcome.

Writing circles

Studies show that writing can boost your immune system and help you find meaning. Writing is the ultimate “circle of one.” In these circles, you can share with others what you’ve learned about yourself in the process of writing.


Writing from the heart

Third Thursday of the month
10:00AM to 11:30AM Pacific Standard Time
11 am Denver | noon Chicago | 1 pm New York | 7 pm Paris

This writing circle is inspired by our internal creative spaces and by listening deeply to self. We welcome all experiences and levels of creativity. There are no prerequisites. This is not a learning-how-to-write or critique circle. Instead, it's a healing circle in which we embrace the agreements of deep listening, compassion, respect, and safety. It's a place where we show up with a willingness to care and share, and where we allow our experiences to unfold through the support of a listening community. We write our hearts’ wisdom found in the silence of listening to our own inner voice and witness. We do not presume to fix or change one another's writing. Sharing is welcome, but there is no requirement to do so.

Seasons of Change: Conscious aging and my mortality 2

Second and fourth Saturday of the month beginning January 8, 2022
11:00AM to 12:30PM Pacific Standard Time
noon Denver | 1 pm Chicago | 2 pm New York | 8 pm Paris

“Everything we love is destined to change, age, and pass away. But it is equally true that every moment brings with it new possibilities....aging is beyond our control, but how we age is up to us.” Lewis Richmond, Aging as a Spiritual Practice

In this circle, we will explore and discover what these words mean for each of us as we use poetry, writing prompts, and discussion to enrich our exploration. This circle will be about honoring the art of one’s exploration in this sacred journey and not about the craft or critique of writing.

Expressive arts circles


Experiential Arts: A sampler

Second and third Thursdays in December and January
12:00PM to 1:30PM Pacific Standard Time
1 pm Denver | 2 pm Chicago | 3 pm New York

Everyone is an artist, and everyone is a healer. We feel inspired by Rachel Naomi Remen's words when she says: "At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity."

In some of these circles, we will chant, draw, move, and or write. You are welcome to join us for one or all four sessions.
