Healing Hearts Ghost Ranch, New Mexico December 30-January 4
About this trip
We are dreaming a collaborative dream... One where every day is nourished by the spontaneity of creative play & the ritual of daily practice. Where we are consciously choosing courage over fear and continually opening our hearts to the unknown of new creative frontiers. Where art is something that we all feel free to make because we know our role as co-creators of every moment with Life, this Earth & One other. Play & Practice. Presence & Purification. Creation & Liberation. Will you join us as we venture into the powerful & majestic valley of Ghost Ranch, New Mexico and call in the New Year of 2019 with intention? We welcome you to join us in our collaborative dream! May we all consciously remember our divine creator-ship; weaving a tapestry of collective empowerment, and leaving a legacy of Love, Light & Liberation on Earth through our co-creations.

Creative and Spiritual Residency
DesireLAB Presents: Healing HeARTS, Nevada City Weekend Retreat November 30th-December 2nd
We are very excited to announce that Healing HeARTS is visiting Nevada City for a weekend retreat in collaboration with Hallie Dalsimer of DesireLAB! Nestled among the trees in a forested residential area, Desire Lab is located a short drive from historic downtown Nevada City, CA, and 20 minutes from the magical Yuba River.
Desire Lab offers local and visiting artists safe space to explore, investigate, and pursue their creative desires. In addition to hosting individual artists, we are creating a platform to invite ongoing, open dialogue about artistic process and practice; mutually empowering creative collaborations; and to support the work of women, queer, and POC artists. Join us for a weekend of playful and deep artistic exploration and restoration. Return to the wisdom of your bodies. Feel the resurgence of Earth wisdom in your bones. Activate your voice through song and sacred ritual. Let us come together in sacred community to heal and to give back to our bodies and Earth mother.
We are very excited to co-create a collaborative program that will allow participants to learn new practices and creative tools from us, as well as have ample space to work on their own creative projects in the company of other artists. This is an offering for our fellow creatives that just need a weekend to BREATHE. This is also a beautiful alternative for those who cannot make it to our new year retreat this year, but still wish to participate in the collaborative dream! DETAILS: Date: Evening of Friday 11/30 - Afternoon of Sunday 12/2 Accommodations: Please bring your own tents if you intend to camp on the DesireLAB property. If not, there will be space for you in the residency space/studio space. Please bring sleeping pads, sleeping bags and blankets. Exchange: $220 before 10/30. $240 after 10/30. $200 for Nevada City locals. $180 for those locals who wish to bring their own food for the weekend.
