Join us as we begin Artist Week at Rolling Ridge with a SoulCare with Artists Day! The day will offer a spacicousness of options with conversation and inspiration that will spark your creativity. Whether you are called to Plein Art painting on the grounds, poetry writing by the lake, or sculpting pottery in our pop-up basement art studio, bring your art supplies, journal, and open spirit for a day with fellow creatives who are exploring the divine intersection of art and spirituality at the Ridge.

Our day will begin at 9:30 am, with a hybrid SoulCare with Artist group session at 10:00. Lunch at 12:30, will be followed by afternoon conversation groups. You are free to join us for as much or as little of the organized sessions as you desire, or simply spend the day living into your own creative space in a community of other creative souls.

This SoulCare with Artists Day is part of our first annual ARTIST WEEK at Rolling Ridge.

Artist Week (May 22-26) is a spacious opportunity to spend time with other creative folks who are discovering the divine intersection of art and spirituality. Our basement will be converted into a community Art Studio for the week. You are invited to bring your art supplies, journal, and be inspired by the beauty of the land and the people you will meet as you create during the week.

Artist Week features overnight options with meals (Monday night through Friday morning).

We will have optional Day Apart Retreats (see below) as we welcome others into our community for the day.
