    "Connect" with Kelly B

Kelly is a martial arts blackbelt but there will not be any fighting. Her workshop is called "Connect" and she will take you through flowing movements that use the energy of the universe to connect to each other and all things around us. It is the same energy known as "chi" or "ki" or "prana". You already have this energy in you.

    "Life Drawing" with Lianne

What did you say? "I can't draw"? Do you know how to hold a piece of charcoal in your hand and draw a line? Yes? Then come on, let what you see, flow out onto the sheet of paper! Whatever the result looks like, just say that's exactly what you intended. LOL.

    "All Are Photogenic"

On Sunday afternoon this group of photo-ok people will move together around the grounds and mindfully create images of themselves enjoying naturism by photographing each other in different situations. Other people in the park will NOT be included in photos. Only controlled event cameras will be used. Robert will provide supervision and guidance for the use of the cameras and setting up creative angles. Every person participating has to be 100% OK with being seen in photos. Robert will later edit and share the best photos with participants.
