Enjoy spiritual renewal with an art focus at the Awaken Your Radiant Heart Women’s Creative Retreat on March 22-24 at Lake Junaluska.

Led by Marga Fripp Studio, this inspiring weekend of art-making, creativity and belonging allows participants to immerse themselves in the wonder and mystery of arts, poetry and nature. No art skills are needed to participate and all materials are provided. 

Workshops include intuitive collage making, mixed media art, poetry writing, gratitude practice and nature-based experiences, and mindful movement QiGong for relaxation and renewal. 

Registration for the retreat includes a two-night stay at the historic Lambuth Inn, five meals from dinner on Friday through breakfast on Sunday, and all program activities and materials. Register online or call our reservations team at 800-222-4930 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

When silt removal, dredging and maintenance are needed, typically every few years, a lake drawdown begins in late December with the lake restored to full pool by Easter.
