“Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful and inspiring day. It was just what I needed. My friends were all jealous when I told them about it. 

They loved my painting. I think I have an inspiration hangover . . . if there is such a thing.”

Reserve My Spot



"I am always Painting.

When I walk to gather wood, I am grounding, observing, inhaling my surroundings. Taking in shadow, light, and color.

Marveling at the beauty, even in the mundane.

Celebrating, mourning the intensity of life and death around me.

Being present is my work.

I cross a threshold when I create."

~Theresa Gray

"The mat is where I shift my own energy.

I release tension, fear, and holding from my mind and body.

I relax back into my true self.

I always feel better after being on the mat."

~ Michelle Shaw

“What a fantastic way to manifest joy! The instructors were loving and helpful. I am still tweaking my art work from that day and loving every second of it. It is the perfect souvenir of a perfect day.”

Appreciation for Art Of Connection

"Thank you so much for an incredible day! It was a true gift to spend the day with you both. You are incredible teachers and such lovely people. I appreciated all of the small and significant details that went into the day: the welcome signs, the quilts, the background music, the delicious lunch, gorgeous cupcakes, and champagne to top off a spectacular day. I loved having the whole day to flow from calming yoga to creative painting. Thank you for creating a wonderful and safe environment.
I appreciate you both so much!"

"It was beautiful!!! It was a day to be in myself! It was emotional for me after being through many things. It gave me time to be grateful and peaceful and create calmness. The environment  . . . simply was beautiful!❤"

~ 2021 Participant

"As I took in the setting and energy of the environment it was easy to feel exhilaration and serenity at the same time. The immersion workshop proved to be the perfect blend of meditative, physical, and creative output. I experienced a spiritual connection with my inner voice during both portions . . . It sparked me wanting more of this in my life. It was an amazing experience and I hope to attend other workshops that are planned."

~ 2021 Participant

"A beautiful balance between yoga and creativity - all wrapped in a unique rustic setting.”

Theresa and Michelle

Theresa About Michelle

What I have learned from being friends with Michelle:

Michelle has taught me to treat myself with greater respect. My physical body. My mental body. My energy body. Because of our friendship, I value myself more.

My ideal time spent with Michelle:

Sitting around with our feet up. Or, taking a road trip adventure. No matter what we are actually doing, I love sharing my surroundings, my life with her. We even shared the flu over Christmas one year, and somehow that was beautiful, too.

One quirky fact about Michelle:

She LOVES specialty drinks. It’s all about the beverages for that girl. Everything from a beet root latte with unsweetened oat milk, to a vintage glass of pink bubbles . . . every sip is a celebration.

Michelle About Theresa

What I have learned from being friends with Theresa:

Theresa continuously reveals beauty to me. I love how she shows me the splendor that’s all around me. And, she has taught me how to receive. To receive gifts, to receive gratitude, and to receive love.

My ideal time spent with Theresa:

Moving slowly. Whether it’s soaking together in the hot springs at Ojo Caliente, strolling along the Mesa, sitting curled up next to one another for a great film . . . every moment is a gift. She is truly my person.

One quirky fact about Theresa:

Theresa can be hilarious about time and space. While she may drive under the speed limit, or build something out of scale, her creative vision and her presence always lead the way.
