Your day. Your timing. Your pace.

I signed up for the opportunity to re-focus my creative writing practice but I stayed for the hand-tool using, new mudra gesturing, water-coloring, tea-drinking, and nap-taking goodness that enveloped my day.

I am still wonder-filled from the day on Sunday.  I loved the time to create the journal and to embellish the pages.  Your question "could you listen to your own holy knowing?" has kept me contemplating for days.

What will you need for this day?

Time to prepare space for yourself.

You will get a preparation guide and a materials list with the kit. Supplies will be minimal. (A glue stick, a simple set of watercolors, 2 paintbrushes, pens–all the lumpy stuff I can’t mail.)

Space for yourself for an entire day.

Do you have access to an outdoor area? Can you go to a park and take over a picnic table in the shade for an entire day? Or does your building have a community room you can book for yourself?

Your dollars grow wings with Camp in a Care Package.

A portion of your tuition for Camp in a Care Package goes to Multicultural Bridge in Berkshire County, MA and their Reparations Fund.

This dedicated Trust prioritizes healing and gestures of community kindness and belonging to those members in our community who have been attacked by bias, hate, and ignorance. They send gifts, cards, hugs and listeners.

If amplifying is on your mind, you can increase the effectiveness of this donation by contributing more or matching what I raise through enrollment. Please email me here for details or simply donate at BRIDGE.


“BRIDGE is a catalyst for justice, social change and building community. Our work transcends barriers of inequity, promotes education to support equity and understanding, and strives to empower youth for success and increased access to resources.”

Cost is $188 plus postage. Includes everything listed above along with links to a centering meditation and other sounds to guide you into a resplendent day of creative practice.

Each Zoom session will be recorded. Your attendance is not required or integral to your experience of Camp. It is an option.
