Nurture is magic. It’s the rich mystery of “it’s hard to describe until you’ve been there” meets the abundance of “greater than the sum of its parts.” It’s a three day sanctuary of personal, creative restoration and inspiration where you feast on good food with great people and are reminded of the sound of your own soul.

Pattern & Pace, facilitated by Laura Fullerton of Capstone Pattern Co. Exploring sewing as reflection, empowerment, grounding and community building.
Art & Activism, facilitated by Manchari Paranthahan. Exploring story, lineage, craft and adornment to make (quite literally) statement jewelry.
