December Retreat + Residency Combo

December Retreat + Residency Combo

The Inside Scoop on the

Artmonk Retreat & Artist Residencies

What’s the difference?

What’s the right program for me?

Both of these programs offer a chance for contemplative practice as well as creative practice.

How do you choose?

First, we have scheduled them so that you can attend both one after the next without interruption. We believe this is the best option in order to deepen both your contemplative practice and your creative practice. If you can only come to one, then….

The Artmonk Retreat, is a structured meditation retreat with time for solo creative practice each day. During the Artmonk Retreat we will spend 4 to 6 hours a day in silent seated meditation and walking meditation. There will be meditation instruction, some guided meditations, and dharma talks. Each day there are 2 to 4 hours of scheduled creative practice. Some of this creative time will be guided and other periods will be open creative practice time.

The Artist Residency is a self led artist residency. That means you will have all day every day to work on your solo creative project as much as you like. Each day there are optional structured activities intended to support your creative work, including group meditation, and delicious meals — but you are free to work on your own schedule. We offer a variety of themed Artist Residencies throughout November and December, but the one immediately following the Artmonk Retreat may be particularly rich.
