The Tango of Creativity
With Michael Eldridge and Michelle Rumney
Painting, Poetry and Photography in The Mountains of La Sibilla
Time & Space to be Creative and to reawaken your inner artist
'Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean'
Creativity thrives in all sorts of ways but one of the greatest gifts
you can give yourself is simply the time and space to allow
your creativity out to play and explore, your life and this
beautiful planet you live in
What better place to do it than Cittadella, amidst wondrous countryside,
great food and like-minded people, with centuries of inspiring mountains
and culture all around you? Actually, the point is you can make
time and space to be creative wherever you are, and this weekend
retreat helps you reconnect, recharge and refocus your energies,
so that you can get right into the heart and soul of what really
makes you tick.
Michelle and Michael bring their painterly, poetic and photographic sensibilities to this inspiring weekend and set you off on a series of mini-adventures, some looking inwards and others looking outwards to this beautiful countryside and the wonder of Cittadella itself. Engaging you with the challenges and joys of simply paying attention, increasing your awareness and tuning in, they use photography, poetry, painting; that golden triangle of creativity where one informs the other, walking and Tango too! Yes we dance in the evenings to relax and laugh a lot too, to help immerse everyone in the simple pleasures of being together and creating beyond ourselves
Once you get started, these creative adventures tend to take on a momentum of their own, carrying you along with them. and Michelle and Michael’s intentions are that you come away refreshed, clear and enthused about the next steps in your own creative journey…
A typical day starts early with an 8,30 breakfast after which we do Ci Kung or Tai Chi around the pool followed by some mind/ body preparations for the day ahead, which will be both studio based and as often in the surrounding countryside and Assisi itself.
Accommodation at Cittadella for this four day workshop costs from E70 per day according to size of apartment, shared or single, inclusive of all meals inc wine
Cittadella's Chef prepares delicious Italian dishes and mealtimes become an intrinsic part of the weekend; in other words in the true Italian way.
Apart from the creativity part it is also a relaxing and fun break, where you will meet some nice people. Talk, laugh, share
It really is a piece of heaven, which you cannot afford to miss out on.
