Confluence 23 at Mt. Madonna

The Creator’s Art:

A Vision for the Future Through Art, Psychology and Creativity

The Creator’s Art recognizes that the individual Self is the source of creative vision. If we are to see real and lasting change in society, we must be willing to reach outside our usual arenas. This Confluence explores possibilities through mutual support, dialog, experiential arts, active imagination and engaging in ritual and play.


Carl Jung believed that anyone who attempts to deal with the problems of the opposites on a personal level is making a significant contribution toward world peace.

  • Creating a collage for the individual and the collective
  • Tapping into the energy of the Shadow and the Opposites
  • Forming a myth for our times
  • Bringing the Rising Feminine into a new cultural unfolding


At the mountaintop Mt. Madonna Center, near Watsonville, CA;  Thur. Oct. 12 – 15, 2023

Mission Statement

The creative individual is a source of the continuing power of evolution that can give birth to the dawn of a new wholeness. We need a greater capacity to access our unconscious creative potential, that values Mother Earth and includes both the masculine  and the feminine principles. A renewing (balancing) and rising feminine can be seen today, in the world and in each one of us. We are gathering together to explore and pursue these principles through art, psychology and creativity.

We invite you to join us.
