'A unique gem of an art residency that facilitates both an experience and space for developing your craft, along with an ecological, cultural adventure.

Living so closely with the environment was such a gift that helped wash away all agendas so I could focus on what was coming through me, via a deep call to be quiet and connect with myself and the sounds of nature. Like an unbroken meditation, with the jungle as my mirror, I was provided with what I needed to learn, to face my blocks, my fears and anxieties, in my life and my practice.
