This summer, the Springhouse print shop will host a week-long program for young adults (18-26) who want to explore more deeply who they are with a community of peers. During these short-term programs, participants will engage in spiritual practices like dance and yoga, along with self-study in a loving and trusting community. They will collaborate on a creative project in the print shop and ultimately build a deeper connection with themselves, their peers, and the mysteries of Life. They will also get to know and become a part of a long-term global community committed to cultural renewal. This is an opportunity for those interested in the 8-month residency to have a similar short-term experience.

This program will be held 10am to 4pm each day, except for Wednesday, June 12th, which will run from 10am to 8pm with dinner provided. Each day, participants are asked to please bring a packed lunch and snacks. This program has a minimum of three participants.

There are three tuition rates for this week-long program:

  1. Pay-it-Forward Rate: $700
  2. Sustaining Rate: $400
  3. Supported Rate: Springhouse remains committed to accessibility, and no one is turned away due to lack of funds. If you cannot afford either of the rates above, please consider what you can contribute towards this week-long program and enter a custom rate at checkout.

Workshops & scholarships made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Arts & Virginia Humanities.
