Creativity & Spirituality


Friday, February 23, 2018 (All day) to Sunday, February 25, 2018 (All day)


524 Pitt Hall Road
Old Chatham , NY
New York


If art leads you to a deeper spiritual journey or your spiritual journey leads you to be more creative, or if you just want to explore the relationship between creativity and spirituality, this retreat is for you. Through all forms of creativity we find opportunities for deepening our spiritual journey. In a creative community we will delve into the interrelationship between creativity and spirituality through a variety of art forms: quilting, weaving, sculpting with clay, painting with watercolors, knitting, crochet, cooking/baking, and origami. Each area will be led by a specialist, and the time will be rich with worship and creating. The weekend culminates with a whole group sharing of our creative process and our creations. 

This multigenerational weekend has become one of our most popular, so we will use both houses. Register early if you have a favorite room or building.

Register by February 4th: $230/adults; $115/ages 13–22; $58/infants–age 12; $165/commuters.

After February 4th: $250/125/63/185.
