1. Summer Retreat at the Way of Beauty Atelier –  Paths to Creativity and Inspiration

Location: Thomas More College, Merrimack, NH. Dates: Attendees arrive the evening of Thursday, August 4th and depart after 1:00pm on Sunday, August 7th. Cost: Just $199. This includes lectures, tuition, room, and meals.

This retreat is based on a traditional education given to artists to develop their ability to apprehend beauty, develop the intuitive faculty and open them up to inspiration. As such it is appropriate for artists, but would be of interest to anyone who wishes to be more creative in what they do. The day revolves around the rhythms of the prayer of chanting the psalms, a tradition which goes back to long before pre-Christian times.
