Rest, relax and connect with yourself while enjoying the beautiful nature that surrounds the Franciscan Spirituality Center. We will explore the natural world through guided soulful writing and watercolor painting, incorporate time for solitude, and sharing our creative expressions with others in community. You will have time to refresh your spirit by journaling on your own with the sounds and sights that nature offers. This retreat day is open to people of all ages and abilities, and no artistic experience is necessary. Bring a sketching journal if possible. All other art materials will be provided.

Note: This event takes place outdoors. In case of inclement weather, we’ll move inside the FSC.

Jan Wellik is the founder of Eco Expressions, a nature writing program, and the author of the “Nature Writing Field Guide for Teachers” and “Embodied Nature: Poetry Collection.”
