Classes, Retreats, and Private Mentoring Sessions
Our essential selves are creative. As we immerse ourselves in the natural world, we awaken the ancient impulse to create. Our senses come alive when working with the earthy textures and unrefined art materials. Jill teaches many of these artistic processes in her studio, and at Naropa University. Contact Jill if you would like to arrange a workshop or presentation for your group.
