Description

The Descent of Inanna: A Soulful Creative Retreat || Thursday 6 pm thru Saturday 10 am. (Option to stay on-site for 2 nights at additional cost)

Come listen to the ancient Sumerian myth of Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, as she makes a harrowing voyage to the Underworld. We’ll spend two evenings and one full day immersed in the richness and depth of this story, with reflection, connection, and art-making for those seeking to explore the events and stories of their life in a unique, creative, and meaningful way. The story of "Inanna's Descent into the Underworld" presents a rich opportunity for personal insight and growth; her story may forever change you and how you see yourself and the world.

This is a beautiful opportunity to prepare for, process, or heal from profound life-changing events such as childbirth, divorce, betrayal, illness, loss/grief, and other transformative journeys. Creative processes, skilled guidance, and sacred circle allow space for deep exploration and expression. Immerse yourself in myth, meaning, and mindful reflection. Leave feeling renewed, uplifted, and connected to your authentic self. No artistic skill or experience needed.

If you are a health-care provider, healer, counselor, therapist or other professional who supports people in crisis, you will gain new insight into how to help those who are struggling or suffering.

Space is limited, so register soon to save your spot!
