Join photographer Lynne A. Kasey and author Tracey L. Kelley for a hands-on, interactive exploration of your creative expression!
We start the morning with quick hellos, and then open our creative centers with gentle movement and focused breathing through Chair Yoga, led by Tracey, a certified yoga instructor. This practice is accessible to everyone who knows how to sit! No need for special clothing or props.
Next, Lynne guides attendees through a fun session of photo transferring. Using a photo of yours or one from one moment of a single days: essays, you'll learn how to transfer it onto an item of your choosing. It'll be available to take home later in that day. It's a perfect method you can use later to commemorate special events or simply play with using a variety of found objects.
After a short break, Tracey provides you with special notebooks and pens to help jumpstart your writing engines! We'll work through a series of writing prompts and share in circular storytelling. Whatever you're interested in expressing through words, use this time to learn new techniques.
Next is lunch! Your registration fee includes a number of beverages and snacks throughout the day, but the fine staff at the Klinger Lake Country Club has put together a healthy Asian salad, full of crunchy vegetables and available with or without marinated grilled chicken. If you'd like a glass of wine with your meal, it's available for purchase onsite.
We'll return to creating unique photo opportunities after the break with Snap and Learn. Using whatever camera you have, Lynne shows you various methods for capturing what you see around you in more comprehensive ways. Lighting, focus, composition—this brief but detailed tutorial allows for you to develop (see what we did there? :)) new photographic moments.
Later in the afternoon, Tracey engages you with concepts from one moment of a single day: essays to help expand your Mindful Listening skills. This heart-led workshop allows for you to get closer to the people who matter most, and build upon your community both in the retreat and in the world—with just a little more zany circular storytelling to end the day with spirited laughter!
