​How to Make Community, Artmonk style​



Join Art Monastery Co-Founder and Abbess Betsy McCall and learn how to design your own transformational ceremony.

This workshop includes all the elements of ceremony, examples of what has been effective at the Art Monastery, and an interactive experience as we co-create our own with the people in the room. Focusing on secular approaches that can work for organisations , we will explore openings, closings, introductions, forgiveness, and gratitude.
