Set in the beautiful atmosphere of the Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens, the Alchemy of Gathering will focus on creating an open space for community to come together and celebrate our connections - connections to each other, to Nature and to ourselves. The gathering will also offer an area for artistic emotional expression and healing through the creative process of three Art for Healing workshops.
The Alchemy of Gathering will begin with an opening ceremony to celebrate and honour the land and people, and also to set the intentions of the day. On the stage, throughout the event, there will be presentations, live music and sound healing performances.
Set amongst the majestic tall trees of the Sunset Garden, over 40 local vendors will have products and services related to wellness, creativity, healing, empowerment, self-care and community. Also, there will be interactive stations for attendees to participate in different meditation and grounding techniques, collaborative drawing, and more.
Under the pavilion, event creator, local artist and author Jenna Walker, brings to life the creative process with three Art for Healing workshops. These workshops will allow space for artistic emotional expression and teachings from her book A Guide to the Collective Awakening: Advice, Tools & Art Projects with which this event was inspired.
Experience a time and space to gather and share ideas on wellness, connection, identity, creativity, healing and more. Let us come together in Nature and celebrate the community and love that is here NOW!
