Join us for this talk by Bowen Island author Ingrid Hauss, on her new book:

Toward Renewal and Belonging: Art, Movement, and Community

In Toward Renewal and Belonging: Art, Movement, and Community, Ingrid Hauss models her uniquely integrative and embodied pedagogy through an intricate weave of her art, studio process, and creative practice. The book provides a glimpse into an artist’s journey which is rarely found in such a transparent, honest, and candid form. The author’s pedagogical approach draws on the richness of her lived experiences, her stories, art, and poetry. In this book, Ingrid invites readers to engage in a creative process of self-discovery. Leading through a series of creative encounters, each chapter inspires and nurtures the renewal of wellness, vitality, and creativity. This work does not require previous artistic training or expertise to be a valuable resource. Educators, artists of all disciplines, and anyone interested in accessing and nurturing their own creative potential will find the book engaging, inspiring, and empowering. This work deepens and invigorates readers’ creative conversations with themselves, their communities, and natural environments. Anyone who believes that it is not too late to create a better world will find this book a comforting companion.

“Ingrid Hauss’s new book engages the reader at many different levels-artistically, somatically and educationally. Each page brings some new idea or activity; the whole book is truly a journey of transformation.”

-Jack Miller, Professor, The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education,The University of Toronto, and Author, The Holistic Curriculum

“Ingrid Hauss is a pure authentic and multi-dimensional creative artist. Her works spark the inner voice of inspiration and her personal narratives light fires that illuminate and invite creativity in everyday life. Her sight line on the world’s beauty brings into focus a unique and wise interpretation of the healing power of art in the world all around us.”

-Joel Carter, M.D., Palliative Care Specialist, Author, TEDx Presenter, and Artist

“Ingrid Hauss is an artist whose insightful and beautifully written publication explores how art is a wellspring that can transform our very way of being by elevating our consciousness, providing a place of respite, and offering life-enhancing opportunities for spiritual growth.”

-Leesa Fanning, Independent Curator, Former Curator of Contemporary Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
