is a space for making and for play.

Invoke | Connect | Make


What if our deepest yearnings are housed in textures, colors, gestures? What if making art opens spaces within us to rest, play, and connect with ourselves and each other in deeper ways?

Let us slow down and share a creative space — where our expressions can flow in unplanned, unimaginable ways. Gather is a space for everyone — no experience in artistic or creative forms is needed.

We will join with others who are curious, who long to simply make, to simply play.

And we’ll explore how to take these new creative possibilities into our own daily lives and spiritual practices.
