Posted by on Oct 1, 2010 in Otherhood | 2 Comments


Artmonk Retreat.

10 days, 9 nights.

Part silent meditation retreat,

Part transformational art ritual.

Vipassana, Gregorian chant, musical improvisation, ritual theater, group exercises, and more, in an incredible setting.


The second-ever Artmonk retreat will begin (after a concert in the Integratron by a handful of artmonks) in the late afternoon on Saturday January 8th and finish in the morning of Monday, January 17th (MLK Day), followed by a second concert at the Integratron.


Integratron (“the only all-wood sound chamber in the U.S.… an acoustically perfect tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert”!!), Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree, California

By Whom

Organized by the Art Monastery (www.artmonastery.org) & custom-designed with renowned meditation teachers Dr. Joel and Michelle Levey (http://is.gd/fCkEe).

For Whom

Professional artists interested in deepening their practice and anyone committed to making art a more central part of their lives.


In addition to being a life-changing meditation and art retreat for each of us personally, this will also help the Art Monastery continue to shape its artistic practices, define the “artmonk” way of being, and make a positive impact in the world.

    Retreats are for ordinary people at any time in their lives. There are no expectations on anyone going on retreat and you don’t need to be a churchgoer
