an afternoon of meditation, nature and art exploration in conjunction with the Stick and Bone art exhibition
Join the Consciousness Explorers Club at a beautiful farm outside of Toronto for an immersive afternoon of meditation, nature and art! You are invited to a hundred acres of open space where you will be greeted by grass under your feet, fresh air in your lungs and all the soothing sounds of nature.
We’re partnering with Samara Contempory‘s Stick and Bone art exhibition featuring artists David Salazar, Gillian Toliver, Lana Filippone, Mitsuo Kimura working in sculpture and using earth materials such as clay, wood and paper to emphasize that we are connected deeply to nature.
During this four hour retreat, we’ll offer group meditations, solo nature explorations, opportunities to create art and time to take in and reflect on the artwork and surrounding environment.
