A cup of dream at Montsalvat
It is midsummer. It is almost the beginning of a new school year. You are busy. You are running around. You are exhausted. Find some time for yourself. Find some time for 'a cup of dream'. Find some time and drive to Montsalvat. Spend a day there or a couple of hours. Walk the grounds, watch the peacock dance. Listen to the birdsong and song of the water in the fountain. Sit on the grass on the hill, in the garden, on the stone wall or in the cafe. Breathe, exhale and close your eyes.

If your imagination fails you or if you are so tired, your brain can not stop and relax, walk up to the galleries and visit one or all of the current exhibitions in the complex.

There is one just started on 18th January - "A Thousand Faces of the Feminine" works by Merilee Bennett. This exhibition and workshop explores sacred feminine through textile and ritual of art making. "A Thousand Faces" is a collection of exquisite hand-made, painted and beaded 'wisdom dolls'. It is a journey into fairytales, myths, legends and insights into a human soul.

You can come for a visit, see the exhibition or you can participate in the workshop with the artist herself. Merilee Bennett has a lot to share with her students when it comes to creative journeys and learning about ourselves.
