Daylong Retreat to Paint & Dance Your Truth Alive

What do you need? It can be difficult to know. Give yourself a day to discover, play, connect, embody, nourish.

Join Staci Boden and Jane Sanguinetti for a day of of creative visioning, inspired painting and joyful dance to cultivate inner truth as a powerful resource you can carry into any life circumstance.

First, we'll gather in a circle for personal sharing to explore our personal intentions for the day. Next, Jane becomes a guide to discover the image and symbols representing your intention and invoke the canvas as a portal to deepen relationship. No painting experience necessary, at all.

Next, we'll move into 7Directions, an earth-based dance ceremony. Led by founder Staci Boden, after checking-in, we'll call upon sacred elements and voice intentions aloud. From there, surrounded by our collective creativity, we'll be free to shake, shout, shimmy and laugh to dance our wisdom alive. No dance experience necessary, at all.

Testimonials from previous art and dance journeys:

"I loved the process of sitting in circle together, and then being led by Jane through the possibilities....The most profound part was afterwards, seeing all of the paintings together, the magnificence, the uniqueness, the power...Then we hung them on the wall, and danced with them and with the ceremony. It was very powerful for me." - MR

"To be honest, painting isn't my thing. But Jane led me through a meaningful process that ignited my vision and inspired me to paint a part of myself I haven't met in years. Later, Staci led a magical dance ceremony with the most amazing cross-section of music. I've been in 7Directions for years, and it was as if our paintings joined us on the dance floor and brought a whole new level of sacred to my experience. My painting continues to be with me reminding who I am. " BD
