Expressive ART from the HEART

with Martha Reich Braden 

10:00 - 4:00 pm Lunch is included


We invite you to explore creating art from your heart! Martha Reich Braden will guide you in expressing yourself using watercolors, colored pencils and black sharpies on paper. We’ll capture your memories and experiences, with the creation of your very own "Art from the Heart " postcards.


An award winning Santa Fe-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Martha Reich has performed around the world and shared stages with Melissa Crabtree, Consuelo Luz, the Reverend Horten Heat and others as well as opening for Kate MacLeod and performing at the Sundance Film Festival. Originally from New England, she received a B.F.A. in Illustration from Philadelphia College of Art, and attended Parsons School of Design. She has exhibited her art in galleries through out the country. But music called and she relocated to Santa Fe in 1999 where she has since released five CDs including the award winning album entitled BRAVE BIRD. 


Learn how to use color, space and expressive lines and brushstrokes to describe what you see with your eyes and feel with your heart. No need for previous experience or ability to draw a straight line, just bring your willingness to have fun. Outdoor art-making, weather permitting.


Watercolors, colored pencils, paper, brushes and sharpies will be provided. 

If you have your favorite materials that you'd prefer to use, you can bring those.


Suggested materials

Discovering the SALKA: Moving from Unhappiness to Joy

with Jorge Luis Delgado

10:00 am - 4:00 pm. Lunch is included.


If we want to be happy, why aren’t we? Why are we always so focused on what’s not going right in our lives? On what doesn’t work? On what our neighbor has that we don’t? We know this attention only serves to keep us stuck and yet we persist.


The Inca, the children of the Sun, find a reason to celebrate every day and every one. Learn the secrets of moving into SALKA and leaving unhappiness behind. SALKA is your undomesticated, unique, free, wild Self – with one important addition – common sense.

Jorge Luis is a "chacaruna," a bridge person, who assists people in connecting to their spiritual self within their own traditions. 
Born in the highlands near Lake Titicaca, Peru, Jorge is of Aymara Incan heritage. His mother is from a family of herders and his father was a teacher. Growing up in a large family in Puno, Peru, Jorge Luis began carrying bags for people in Puno to earn extra money for the family.  After he graduated with superior grades from high school, Jorge Luis continued in this tradition and chose to be a tour guide.  Early in his career, he concentrated on being very scientific as he worked in the area of the Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu, and the area surrounding Lake Titicaca.  

Today, Jorge Luis is known around the world as a knowledgeable guide of the Sacred Valley and the High Plateau of the Andes. His knowledge spans the culture, the traditions, and the spiritual heritage of his vibrant Inca world. Jorge Luis now has his own tour company, Kontiki Tours, and is currently building his third Taypikala Hotel. Jorge Luis lives in Puno with his wife and three children.


Activate your Heart’s Intelligence – The Power of Coherent Alignment

with Heartmath CEO Dr. Deborah Rozman

10:00 am - 4:00 pm. Lunch is included.


The state of physiological coherence generates an alignment between heart, brain, spirit and nervous system that activates the heart’s intelligence and guidance.


In this full day seminar, you’ll learn about HeartMath Institute’s scientific research on individual, social and global coherence that has the potential to transform our personal, social and global future. You’ll learn and practice new HeartMath tools to unleash the power of coherent alignment for yourself and help activate the heart of humanity. This facilitates heart empowerment in individuals and social systems allowing us to choose the way of love, demonstrated through compassionate care in interactions with ourselves, others and Planet Earth.

  • How to break unwanted emotional patterns

With the knowledge of how your mind works, Dr Joe will then guide you through a step by step meditation process to overcome destructive emotional states such as insecurity, unworthiness, anger, and so on – and repplace them with new states of mind. You will leave this workshop having made significant changes in your life by rewiring your brain, and the tools that enable you to apply this process at any time in the future.
