Diane Green is a renowned artist and creator of The Green Studio School, where her mission is to merge the visual arts with the healing arts.

She is offering a unique retreat opportunity in June 2018. This one-of-a-kind experience is especially designed so that you can restore, awaken and create.

Join us in the magical and sacred city of Assisi, Italy. Assisi offers the perfect setting to work the light that is within all of us. The energy of St. Francis and the great painter Giotto will also be your guides. They will join us as magic makers that will lead you on a journey that will connect you to your source where your particular expression can be found.

Are you ready to become quiet and listen? Come enter the magic!

Activities

Luminous Assisi, Art and the Imaginal will be like no other retreat! Diane is bringing her exquisite energetic & artistic teachings which are designed to reach anyone from beginner to accomplished artist. She has a unique ability to see her students in the fullness of who they are, and connect them with magic & the imaginal.

You will be guided through a journey of opening to possibility, creativity, and mystery.

We'll gather in a traditional embroidery studio, next to an ancient courtyard, to create our art. In the process of creating your artwork, you will connect inward to find your fullest expression. Using mixed media and paper, you will witness the outpouring of energy that will offer you a reflection of yourself.

Together we will access the ancient energies of Assisi, explore the history of St. Francis and his time, and connect you with your own nature. Together we will explore the limitlessness of what our art and we can become.

You will emerge refreshed, recharged, and prepared to welcome in new & exciting possibilities in your visual expression and how it pertains to your life's journey.

Here are just a few of the daily activities that we're planning for you:

Create artwork that is a reflection of your soul

Mindfulness walks into nature following the footsteps of St. Francis

Obtaining messages from the art in Assisi

Creating mixed media art that draws from the ancient materials that Assisi is built of

Sharing vibrational history in the Basilica

Learn new art and healing practices to restore oneself, which can be taken home and used again & again

Food to enliven and provoke the senses!

Lodging

All of the lodging is located in charming buildings near the Assisi town center, within easy walking distance of one another and easy walking distance of the locations where we'll be gathering for our shared time together. Lodging is available in both hotels and apartments. Almost everywhere in Assisi seems to have spectacular views, but certain hotel rooms & apartments have especially nice views, and those are included in the Premium pricing.

 

Meals

All participants are responsible for the cost of their own meals. Breakfast is provided in many (not all) of the accommodations. We will have 2 or 3 group dinners together, in which we'll enjoy the sumptuous gourmet offerings available throughout Assisi. We will offer recommendations for other restaurants & cafes that you might enjoy.

 

Airfare

Airfare is not included in the Retreat pricing and should be purchased separately. We recommend flying in to Rome, Italy and finding ground transportation to Assisi. If you would like assistance with finding ground transportation, just let us know!
