Cultivate an intimate connection with the land through a series of gently guided practices to enhance your powers of attentiveness and appreciation. The weekend includes camping or rustic lodging, catered meals, tours, walks, relaxing and wine tasting at a solar-powered, off-the-grid vineyard, where five acres of dry-farmed grapes and olives are grown and harvested in harmony with the natural surroundings.
For people of all levels of writing and drawing experience, from absolute beginners to longtime practitioners.
