Program Description:

Description of Residency Program
Now in its third year, Awakenings is a ten-day thematic residency that provides a sacred and inspirational space to explore creativity and intuition within the framework of earth-based spirituality. The objective is to engage holistic practices that connect mind, body and spirit with the self and environment. The goal is to incorporate metaphysical practices within the arts and examine how this knowledge has been viewed historically as well as how current views can be integrated, disrupted or altered.
Providing a sacred & inspiring space to explore creativity within an earth-based spiritual practice.
Topics such as, herbalism, mindfulness, shamanism, divination, and ritual, will be viewed from a variety of perspectives including; pop culture, psychology, alchemy, theology, history, and, post-colonial discourse. Along with programmed time, residents also have free time to work individually or collaboratively in a studio. Methods of art making can be visual, time-based, photography, craft, writing, music, dance or performance art. Supportive discussions of residents’ work in progress occur on a regular basis.
FACILITATOR: Monica Bodirsky is an artist, writer, creativity coach and faculty at OCAD University in Toronto.
