I would like to invite you to a workshop this Spring in Italy at Cittadella, a wonderful Agriturismo high up in the Sibillini mountain range in the Province of Le Marche, Italy, just below the ancient volcano of Monte Vettore
From May17 to 21
It is a very special place where mother nature still rules supreme, a place indeed where succesful re-wilding programmes are in action to restore the population of wolves, bear and many other species of fauna and flora
Our workshops invite our guests to re-wild themselves, which simply means returning for a while to their childlike innocent playful selves and through painting, poetry and photography, to deepen their commitment to live more creative and fulfilling lives.
We talk about the realm of creativity being like a distant roar of the wind, which, if we give our attention to it, gets close and closer, until it absorbs us and we are taken on a flight like autumn leaves in an autumn storm.
And we are necessary in this dance. We make manifest these whispers, these messages, sent to us sometimes in the roaring wind and sometimes in the gentle sound of a babbling stream, or the echoing cry of a circling falcon.
By being awake and fully attentive to these wonders, we are compelled to make images, write poetry, stories, music, as a gift back to this source, whatever it might be, wherever it comes from.

And please do share if you know of a friend who might like to come on such an adventure
