“A good half of the art of living is resilience.”
Alain de Botton
Dear beloved guests,
I hope this message finds you physically well and emotionally secure.
It is hard to find words to describe the extraordinary weeks, months and year we've experienced as individuals, families, communities, a nation and a world regarding COVID-19 coronavirus. Even as we approach the holiday season of 2020, we're still in the luminal space.
After all this year of abundance of caution and protection, I'm casting courage and radical hope and stepping into 2021 without a waving green flag. We have a big year planned for next season and are ready to innovate and adapt if necessary. Health and Safety first. Creative wellbeing second.
The pandemic has revealed priorities. More than anything I have ever made, our circle of community is one the most important thing I have created.
You, me, us are a priority.
All 2020 spring, summer events were gently reshuffled into 2021. Events next year will be "planned with a purpose" following trusted reliable sources and public health guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Ohio Governor Mike Dewine and the Ohio Health Department.
I create our gatherings as a safe space of belonging while also assuring health, safety and wellbeing. With that in mind, all decisions about events will be led by the latest science and research for our safety. All retreats, workshops and studio gatherings will be risk assessed and operated under the CDC guiding principles.
The coronavirus may still impact us until an effective vaccination is available. An emergency refund COVID-19 policy has been created for ticket holders. You are eligible for a refund if: (Paypal transaction fees excluded)
You are unable to attend due to domestic travel advisories and/or bans.
You are sick, need to care for sick household members, or are at high risk for complications from COVID-19.
The venue is closed due to health department or state mandate.
The event /retreat staff are sick, need to care for sick household members, or are at risk for complications from COVID-19.
The event/retreat is cancelled due to the COVID-19 health crisis based one government guidelines, directives or bans to assure health and safety.
The event/retreat is postponed and rescheduled due to the health crisis to a future date that you cannot attend.
Our hearts, minds and bodies are built for connection. An entire world is being transformed from a health crisis, an economic catastrophe and temporary social isolation. My 🖤 is with yours.
