A SACRED HARVEST

 

The scarlet leaves, golden sunsets and falling chestnuts are an invitation to leave behind the distractions of home and bask in the abundance of nature, reflect in the golden sunrises and gently connect to your authentic inner wisdom. Autumn in Michigan is the perfect setting to reap the harvest of your creativity.

 

Creativity Coach and Writer, Michele Lussky, will lead us in the inner guidance work of intuitive collaging, shamanic journey walks, breathwork meditation, shadow writing, sacred burning, gentle yoga, and labyrinth walks. 

 

There will be plenty of "down-time" to show yourself compassion and let your creative juices flow in the peaceful setting of the historic inn.  Feel free to wander the 146 acres of woodland trails, rolling meadows, and wetlands. Take time to write, create, or read in the library. Visit the peaceful "meditation loft" to pray, dream, meditate, or practice yoga. Sit by the fire and chat with other soulful creators.  This is your time to relax, heal, create, and connect.
