3 Days of Deep Sensation

Sometimes we tread along a cyclical path: moving mindlessly from one day to the next, one task to the next, one check to the next… At Black Arts Retreat you will break the cycle. Creative and outdoor workshops will attune us to every moment of our lived experience. What does your anxiety smell like? We’ll extinguish it. What does your numbness sound like? We’ll shatter it. What does your indifference taste like? We’ll season it. Connect again at Black Arts Retreat Northeast.
