11:00 a.m. to 1:30p.m. (EDT)

Deep Time Live is a meditative painting practice of mine.
Please feel free to participate by engaging
in your own creative process, journaling, meditating, or witnessing.

This particular retreat has come up suddenly, and I had almost no notice.

Because of that, it will be done somewhat differently from the last one.

I will need to manage the tech, so there will be no waiting room. This means you can enter the Zoom Room as soon as you arrive.

Please enter unobtrusively and keep your video and audio off.

This time I will be keeping my audio ON so you will be able to hear me working. If the sound of me re-filling my water jars and moving around disturbs you, please turn your volume to zero.

In whatever way you choose to participate,
here's some important information about the retreat:

▸ Please arrive a few minutes early. We will begin promptly.

▸ Allow yourself to be fully present by turning off all notifications on your computer and phone.

▸ Gather your journal, sketchbook or painting tools ahead of time, and make sure you have a beverage handy to stay hydrated.

▸ If you need a bio-break, when you return, pause for a moment to get centered before quietly re-entering the session.

▸ This a silent retreat. Please keep your microphone muted at all times.

▸ Please don’t engage in conversation (as messaging, texting, chatting, etc.)  Being silent allows us all to be fully present.

▸ If you need to leave early, please do so unobtrusively.

If you have time before the retreat begins, take a little time to move into a quieter place inside yourself.  Get comfortable.  Breathe.  Do a body scan and notice any places you may be holding tension.  Listen to your heart beating.

The sessions generally go at least 1½~2  hours. The ending time may be inexact due to the nature of the activity.  After the session you may want to some time to stay in your quiet inner space.

My Deep Time painting is a very private practice. To paint from this deep creative place I require undisturbed calm so I can be attentive to whatever wants to emerge. Even though you may be far away physically I am very sensitive to energy and I am easily disrupted, so thanks in advance for observing my requests.

I look forward to your presence.
