Day Schildkret of Morning Altars returns to ReImagine End of Life Festival in New York City for a hands-on workshop and large-scale installation build for the festival's closing ceremony. Come join this cutting-edge conversation on new ways to image the end of life process.
New York City is the perfect palette to dream with our hands. We will wander and forage the parks to collect autumn leaves, flowers, bark, and stones as our creative materials. We will use the ground as our canvas and learn the seven steps to making beautiful art with the land. You will return home with a practice you can do every day, no matter where you are. The workshop will inspire you to connect back to your inner child and to the timelessness of the natural world and the wisdom of impermanence. This ancient ritual and expression connect people with the land and their imaginations; inviting them to wonder and play and to explore the profound meaning of life's ephemerality.
Join Day Schildkret, internationally renowned earth mandala artist and author as he launches his new book: “Morning Altars: A 7-Step Practice to Nourish Your Spirit with Nature, Art and Ritual” for this workshop that will offer a much-needed digital detox, getting you off the screens and into the wisdom and joy of the natural world.
