Walkthrough Sample Creative Wanderlust Experience

Our experience starts with a wanderlust warm-up where we begin to interact and share stories and curiosities about the world we live. With our minds engaged, we then move into a series of short, imaginative exercises where we energize our creativity.

Finally with provided materials, we dive into a hands-on activity where we are inspired by our location. We use all our senses and get immersed in our adventure by exploring the details of our selves and surroundings through art, writing, and photography. Above shows a sample folded journal of writing and sketches from exploring a local farmers market.

Experiences range from 30 minutes to full day and/or multi-day retreat.
