Fall Graduate Guild Retreat, September 23-25, 2022
″The Art of Seeing” at Wisdom House in Litchfield, CT

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with ‘new eyes.’ ”
-Marcel Proust 

Imagine a world where you could see with “new eyes.” The Art of Seeing with Carmen Lund is an art-making class with a spiritual objective. In this approach you are led to take a fresh look at familiar things. Using a process of discovery and paying attention is a game changer. Nothing will ever appear the same as before. Nothing will be mundane. 

The natural will become miraculous and the everyday will be unique.You will develop a fresh sense of awe, wonder and gratitude for the natural world and God’s movement in the everyday.. 

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Pablo Picasso. 

Over the weekend, you will be led in a series of exercises to express, elaborate and manifest everyday mundane reality and transform it into something special. 

Carmen Lund is a graduate with the Guild for Spiritual Guidance (AP XX) and a visual artist whose paintings have been exhibited and collected in the US, Asia, South America and Europe. She also teaches painting and is a transformational life coach. The common thread in each of the areas is her creative approach to problem-solving both on and off the canvas.
