“Playshops are summer camp for the soul, full of humor, creativity, joy and poignant moments.  Krayna’s a brilliant facilitator of the heart, who supports artistic freedom and exuberant expression with no pressure or critiquing.  You’ll go home refreshed after being in the company of others who share a love of words and community.”   J.B., Writer & Poet

Unencumbered:
A Day-long Playshop

Sunday, November  3rd, 2019  ~  10:00AM – 4:00 PM

“We can try to kill all that is native….but spirit howls and wilderness endures.”

Terry Tempest Williams

This Playshop is a potent counterpoint to that which encumbers us and endangers inner wilderness: domestication, busyness and technology overload.  Slow down, recalibrate and engage via poetry, creative writing, silence, conversation and art-making in a community of kindred spirits.

Fee:  $65 – $135 sliding scale
Location:  Bend, Oregon
To Register:  Contact me at 541-318-0045, or, email me at krayna@clearlenscoaching.com
