  • 0

“Water and Inner Wisdom” is the theme for a new nature art journaling retreat series beginning this August at the Franciscan Spirituality Center, 920 Market St., La Crosse.

The Sacred Spaces/Artful Living series runs from Friday, Aug. 19, to Saturday, Aug. 20, and brings together guided journaling, simple artistic practices and silent time in nature.

“This retreat series will follow the natural cycles of the seasons to connect our vibrant inner world with the healing power of the natural world,” said FSC retreat coordinator Deb Hansen, who will facilitate the group with local writer and environmental educator Jan Wellik.

A wide range of art materials will be provided; participants are asked to bring a basic drawing/watercolor pad, journal and, if desired, any favorite art mediums.

The retreat starts at 7 p.m. Friday and concludes at 3 p.m. Saturday. The cost is $140 for an overnight stay (includes breakfast and lunch) or $95 for commuters (includes lunch).

The deadline to register is Aug. 5. Go to or call 608-791-5295 for more information.
