Explore your relationship to your Place in the Cosmos

How does your relationship to your place in space impact the way you experience life on earth?

What is the story you tell about being here?

We will explore our relationship to our sense of place in the cosmos, how artists can work with the colors created by the universe, and what story did our ancestors leave for us to discover and why.


We want every University student, Guild graduate and Intentional Creativity® Foundation member to know these foundational elements of creation and what they mean for the creative person.
