Listen, an Art & Poetry Retreat
Saturday, June 12, 2021
9am – 3pm
The Stable, Durham, NC
Leaders: Claudia Fulshaw & Mandy Mizelle
Cost: $125, includes lunch from Grub Durham, beverages and snacks. (A week before the retreat you will be emailed the yummy lunch options with a request for your lunch order.)
Description: A beauty- and wonder-filled retreat inspired by Barbara Crooker’s poem, “Listen,” and the breathing, blooming world around us. This comfortable and creative retreat invites you into simple writing experiences and unique art projects that will illuminate and awaken our early summer senses. With plenty of space and masks, we’ll move between the serene sanctuary inside The Stable and the green grounds outside which feature a gorgeous labyrinth. Includes all materials, lunch from Grub Durham, beverages, and snacks. Presence and process over perfection. No art or writing experience is required for this guided and exploratory retreat! All materials will be provided.
Co-Leader, Mandy Mizelle is a chaplain, minister, writer, perpetual procrastinator, and imperfection advocate who also lives in Durham. A lifelong lover of words, her favorite sacred texts are the everyday stories of our lives. Mandy enjoys creating spaces of grounding and gratitude that remind us of – and invite us to pay attention to – the Spirit around and inside us.
SPECIAL NOTE: Assistance throughout the day will be performed exceptionally well by the ever-lovely Laura Conte.
Important Safety Protocols: At this time, we are requesting that everyone who chooses to attend this retreat be vaccinated against the coronavirus. As hosts, it feels like the most responsible thing to do for all. Additionally, everyone will be required to wear a mask when inside The Stable and whenever unable to socially distance outdoors. The windows and double doors of The Stable will be open for abundant air flow throughout the day.
