Exploring our Creativity Painting, poetry and mountain escapades
With Michael Eldridge
June 11 to 16, 2020 at Cittadella, Le Marche, Italy
Early June in the Sibillini mountains is an exquisite time of year. The winter snows have all but receded from Monte Vettore and her sister peaks, and although the Springtime starts a little later here than along the coastal strip, it bursts through suddenly at this time, in a riot of colour as if celebrating the very rebirth of nature, awakening the animals, the bears from their winter slumber and the wolves who are already nursing their newly born cubs and in the crystal clear blue sky above, the mountain eagles are scouring the fields below for food for their offspring. Butterflies and honey bees abound in this unpolluted air, and we are all entranced by this symphony of life which abounds at this altitude
Our days. We arise early of a morning before breakfast to stroll down to the pool for Tai Chi or Ci Kung.
Here, it is as if we are floating in the sky, or at least the swallows and house martins might think we are as they swoop down and around us and falcons glide blissfully high up above us.
Staying at Cittadella, you can't help but become absorbed in Nature, and there are places close by amongst these mountains which are somehow sacred by the waterfalls, the gushing streams and rivers, the ancient pathways. And our walks and adventures hereabouts allow us to shed ourselves for a while of the strains and stresses of our lives and to allow our creativity to flourish. We paint, we write poetry, we photograph, and we share our experiences with one another, forming new and lasting bonds in our lives.
Many past participants will be returning again this year; the finest of folks who love to share what they have learned....And there will be a few places available for newcomers too.
So who would this attract? I would say, folks who have some experience with art expression; any type at all – photography, music, writing, sketching, painting, handicrafts, gardening,
They would have a love of sharing too and probably be less rational and more poetic by nature.
Our intentions are that you come away refreshed, clear and enthused about the next steps in your own personal artist’s journey…And it's a journey of re-discovery and learning how to keep awake in this restless world, awake to the wonder of nature and the necessity of keeping our creative selves alive
And our objective always is to take you back to your original creative self; to immerse you once more in the magic pool of your precious creativity which has been waiting for your attention for so long. Our programme works wonders and you'll love it! And what's more we give you a tool kit to take away with you so you never lose this gift again
