Women's Gathering

April 3-6th I attended a Women's Gathering in Blue Ridge, Ga. This is the 3rd retreat that I have attended facilitated by my very good friend, Julia Speer. She is an incredible artist & art educator. Julia has an extensive

background in Women's Issues. Her site is well worth a visit. The focus for our weekend was "Mask as Metaphor-Accessing Your Companion Archetypes." Nine wonderful women,
including myself, spent the weekend on growth work and creating art. We created plaster gauze masks and collaged or painted them based on our personal experience with Archetypes. I made my plaster base mask, but chose to work on
collages Saturday. I am including many photos which show us creating, eating, socializing and connecting. An added bonus are photos of "Deja View" the fantastic house which Julia rented for our retreat.


  1. Wow! It looks like a fabulous retreat! Thanks for sharing it with us.

  2. Thanks for sharing the retreat experience. Looks like it was an amazing experience and I love the work you did.. I love mask making. My favorite cards are the mystic and seeker.. those two I REALLY relate to.
    All of this was very inspiring and I took a look at your teacher sight.. WoW! Got lost there as well :-)
    thanks again for sharing......

  3. Thanks for the eye-candy! I had to snap myself back to the reality that I need to take a shower and get ready for work this morning. I was "so there" with all of you *smiles*

  4. Lovely and enriching, I am so happy for you!
