This icon retreat will introduce participants into the ancient tradition of icon writing. During this five day retreat through meditation, practise and contemplation you will learn the techniques of writing an icon. Using a gesso wood panel board, egg tempra, natural pigment, bole and guilding with 24 kt gold leaf, you will write an icon. The icon that will be written is “Christ Emmanuel.”
Facilitator: Gisele Bauche was drawn into the mystery of icons which offered her a sacred space for prayer, contemplation and spiritual growth. www.spiritualityandart.ca
