Art as Meditation - A Pilgrimage in Pen and Ink: New Year's Retreat at Pendle Hill

Bring in the new year and reflect on the old as you invite Spirit into the process of meditative art practices. Explore quieting drawing methods that encourage and nurture creative flow, and contemplative mark-making. Experience a pilgrimage into creation, play, and worship, where you’ll learn to let go of expectations, tame our inner critics, and pay attention to process over product.

This New Year’s,  experience a “Pilgrimage in Pen and Ink” with Ann Coakley and I in the beautiful setting of Pendle Hill, in Wallingford, Pennsylvania


Sadelle Anne Wiltshire, Contemplative ArtsSadelle Anne Wiltshire is a weaver of lines, fibers, websites, circles, connections and whimsy.   A long time resident of Vermont and a Quaker,  Sadelle’s art and creations have been rooted in the focus and flow that comes when one is present with Spirit.    She enjoys sharing this love with others, in teaching and mentoring.

“I have had a love affair with meditative arts since I was young.  I love the rhythms and soothing focus in playing with and creating patterns from yarns, threads, wires, paper, paint, pen and ink.  I LOVE teaching contemplative arts and encouraging the connection of the inner voice with art.”
