The Cave and the Well

A Weekend for Goddess-Inspired Creators

 February 7-9, 2020

Friday Harbor, WA

Are you working on a novel, but find yourself stuck? Are you trying to finish a painting but can’t find the focus?  Maybe you're feeling a creative urge to begin something…but don’t know where to start? No matter where you are on your creative journey, this is the opportunity to take a deep dive into your project...or start something new! Bring your project or blank slate. Leave with a deeper relationship to your artist soul and new life in your creative endeavor at this spiritual and creative retreat in the San Juan Islands.


Open to persons of all genders over 18 years old. Parents are welcome to bring nursing infants. 


Weekend will include…

~ Meditation and ritual invoking Brigid and the Morrigan, Celtic goddesses of creation and courage. 
~ Exercises to address creative blocks, fear of failure, and tapping into richer images and symbolism with author Courtney Weber and artist Ashley Rugge.  
~ Plentiful creative space to start or work on your project.
~ Nature Walks 
~ Community dinners with fellow creators.
