Join Abbey of the Arts on retreat in 2021!


We are delighted that all of our 2020 pilgrimages and retreats have been full for several months now (you are always welcome to add yourself to our cancellation list as we do have folks drop out).

We are scaling back on our live offerings for 2021 to allow more time for writing but are thrilled to announce the following programs which are currently open for registration:

Writing on the Wild Edges: A Creative Retreat on the Island of Inismor (Ireland)
with Christine & John Valters Paintner
May 9-15, 2021 – limited to 18 participants

Poetry and the Sacred Garden of the World: A Creative Retreat on the Island of Inismor (Ireland)
with Christine & John Valters Paintner
August 22-28, 2021
 – limited to 18 participants

*This retreat is based on content Christine developed for Chartres and is similar in format to our other writing retreat above with even more emphasis on poetry. Open to all levels of experience.

Hildegard of Bingen and the Greening Power of God: A Pilgrimage in Germany
with Christine Valters Paintner and Betsey Beckman
September 11-19, 2021 – limited to 16 participants (HALF FULL! Only twin shared rooms left)
More details here>>

These are likely going to be the only live programs offered by Christine in 2021 as we are also hosting a couple of private groups. Let us know if you have questions or need an encouraging nudge to join us!
