Thank you for taking a look at our GoFundMe page! Art is key to our Deepen Your Impact: Lead from Your Voice retreats. (www.deepenyourimpact.com). Please join us in donating to the Artist Relief Fund (www.artistrelief.org), an organization distributing grants of up to $5K to artists facing dire financial circumstances due to COVID-19 crisis.
Artists share a piece of their souls with us with every work they produce. Their courage and vulnerability lift us out of the mundane and inspire us to connect to our own souls. Making a living as an artist is often difficult, but particularly hard now during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We decided to make an impact and use our voice to honor and support artists of all types with this GoFundMe campaign.
In our retreats, we use art, poetry, music, movement, nature, and community to help people create their own lives as a work of art, a beautiful expression of their eclectic and unique selves. Art makes the experience enjoyable and restorative, and its impact lasting and deep.
In response to COVID-19, we offered virtual mini-retreats through George Washington University Social Medicine Initiative https://cepl.cps.gwu.edu/co-vita19-social-medicine.
In addition, we continue to offer free, virtual, weekly mini-retreats called “Monday Movement and Meditation” (MMM) where we bring together a great group of people from different countries, ages, and professions (www.deepenimpact.com).
Artists like Anne Finger could use your support to help them continue making art (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/04/arts/design/artists-relief-coronavirus.html). Please consider a donation in any amount to the Artist Relief Fund (www.artistrelief.org).
Wishing you health and happiness,
Julia Karpeisky & Nancy Sanchez
Friends, partners, and co-creators of Deepen Your Impact: Lead from Your Voice based out of the DC Metro area. We provide nurturing retreats for busy professionals where they gain the freedom to expand the range of their voices both physically and figuratively.
