INQUIRE WITHIN….Summer Intensive

 THE YOGA OF CREATIVITY – an experiential journey in three parts.

July 27, 28, 29, 2018


Albert Einstein said, “creativity is intelligence having fun”!  Henri Matisse wrote that “creativity took courage”.  Picasso declared, “I begin with an idea, and then it becomes something else.”  To which, Tchaikovsky might have replied, “A self-respecting artist must not fold his hand on the pretext that he is not in the mood.”  Exactly my thoughts as  I tune, and retune, and retune my harp. 

 Many believe that the creative impulse is a gift, that perhaps others received and they got left out.

How we *think* about creativity has a lot to do with how we express it or not.


Looking at the astrology for this weekend it seems as though this is a perfect time to explore how yoga impacts the creative process. And vice versa.  The Sun moving thru Leo fuels the impulse for self-expression like no other time of year. 

Over 3 sessions we will explore Yoga, Creativity, and Expression in different ways.  You can attend all three sessions or pick and choose what interests you. Attending all three will make your experience more meaningful.    

On Friday, we’ll meet at The Sanctuary at 6:30 pm to address: the creative spark, getting clear, letting go, and creating intention.  We’ll practice together and plant our intention for fruitful future growth.  

On Saturday, 8am, we’ll come together for an intensive experience of creative self-expression.  What that will look like is different for everyone.  We’ll be at the Belmar Arts Center in Belmar, NJ.  This space has hosted everything from musical and storytelling events, to art openings and shared workshops.  My intention, is to use the space as creatively as possible.   The Saturday Workshop will include: gentle hatha yoga and various off-the-mat activities such as:  dyads, art, journaling, astrodrama, expressive movement & meditation.  No hatha yoga experience is needed.   Call/Text if you have questions.  

On Sunday, we meet again at The Sanctuary, 10 am, for Integration.  Yoga Nidra & Meditation.  


Registration for Inquire Within, Yoga & Creativity is thru BAC.  $100/$125 covers all 3 sessions including supplies.If you choose to attend only the sessions at The Sanctuary, that is fine.  Donations accepted.  Om Shanti.
