Class description

Submerging yourself in nature provides the opportunity to nourish and connect inwards in new and surprising ways. Nature will be your classroom and source of inspiration. This photography retreat is designed to help you find and unlock your personal story in this cycle of your life, which speaks to your longing of a deeper connection and meaning to yourself and the earth.

This class will guide you to observe through nature, myth, and symbolism, the infinite ways of weaving yourself back into that sense of authenticity and belonging to place. You will discover the magic of the everyday in your life.

Every day, Holly will be leading you on a creative process that allows for the space to tune in to yourself and loosen up your imagination and observation. This is a class on how to explore ideas for the days work. Throughout the day she will connect individually with each participant. The evenings will be a space where anyone that wishes to share their process and images may do so.

“The unique mysteries of each unique corner of this Earth express themselves inside each of us in a perfectly unique way.” Sharon Blackie in The Enchanted Life.
