An Art of Ensoulment Retreat with Cynthia Winton-Henry and Marla Durden 
July 28 – August 2, Holden Village in Eastern Washington

Experience the Awe-Inspiring Holden Village Retreat Center in Washington State’s North Cascades Mountains near Glacier Peak Wilderness, GIFT YOURSELF a truly extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime space to dance with the divine where we nurture our innate genius and connection. We will have time to play and learn together, space for rest and exploration in a most beautiful and sacred land, and more. Join Cynthia, and Marla, and meet other inspired faculty teaching during the week

Start with an amazing journey on Saturday, July 27 (a four-hour drive from Seattle-Tacoma.) Consider booking a room in Chelan on Saturday night. (See below.) On Sunday, enjoy a scenic two-to-four-hour ferry to the dock at Lucerne, where a Holden Village vehicle transports pre-registered visitors 11 miles for a 40-minute ride to the village. Rest and prepare for a wonderful week.

Join Week 8 of Holden’s Summer Program, July 29 – Aug 2, where amazing teachers work side by side. You’ll experience Cynthia and Marla prayerfully model earth-based spirituality, elemental connection, art-based practices, and respect for indigenous leadership as they offer InterPlay’s restorative movement practices, music, story, and silence. The sessions accommodate each person’s unique capacities and energy as we Honor Our Spirit Team, Center Our Creative Birthrights, Divine Our Purpose, Dance with Suffering, Bow to Limits, and Come Home to Beauty.
