“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.”

"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.”

 ~ 2021 Participant

”It was very spiritual for me after a chain of events. It felt so good to connect and love myself.” 

~ Cindy Johnson

"It was beautiful!!! It was a day to be in myself . . . it gave me time to be grateful and peaceful and create calmness. The environment . . . simply was beautiful!❤"

~ 2021 Participant

"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 . . . Thank you for creating a wonderful and safe environment.
I appreciate you both so much!" 

~ Ellen Dvorak

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: 

Michelle inhales her sugar by watching her favorite tv show, "The Great British Baking Show."

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:

When painting, Theresa has an AMAZING eye for color. When cooking? Her favorite foods skew one direction: pasta and cream sauce. Potato chips and dip. I’m glad we have both been told to “eat or drink our greens every day.” 🥬
