Family Camp Three: Creative Explorations
with Jack Callan and Judith Stevens
Coming to Family Three?
Join A.R.E. Camp’s Family Three 2012
Family Camp #3 — August 12 - August 18
Want to make a little time in your life to write, paint, and create music or poetry? Then join Judith Stevens and Jack Callan in an idyllic natural setting where inspiration abounds – the mountain-ringed valley of A.R.E. Camp. You will be living among other creative families as Judith and Jack share information from the Cayce readings and offer creative approaches to the joy of creative expression in a safe, supportive environment. Bring your writing, poems, ideas, musical instruments, or favorite sketchbook along, and trust yourself to release your creative abilities in a place of unparalleled beauty. According to the Cayce readings, each of us IS a poem; each of us IS a song; each of us IS a work of art, greatly valued in the eyes of our Creator. And we are all co-Creators with God. Let’s have fun together as we creative “grown-ups” show our families that we can still play together and color and laugh with the best of them. Who knows, maybe your kids will even hang some of your creations on the fridge!
Jack Callan is a self-taught artist and poet who came to both art forms late in life (at age 45 and 50, respectively). He has exhibited widely throughout Virginia and is the author of two published books of poetry, "Knucklehead Poems," and "Little River on the Milky Way." Jack takes much of his inspiration from hiking and camping in the Appalachian mountains where many of these poems were written. He leads poetry open mics, workshops and original events with his wife, Judith, throughout the Hampton Roads area. An accomplished carpenter of 40 years, Jack is currently building his wife an exquisite yoga and meditation room at home.
Judith Stevens was a member of the A.R.E. Staff in Virginia Beach for 17 years. During that time, she directed the world-wide Study Group Program and created A.R.E.'s Prison "Over the Wall" Program, visiting men and women in prisons around the world, presenting workshops and lectures at Headquarters and throughout the United States, Canada and abroad. A former folksinger, musician and writer, she is also a published poet and a certified Ayengar yoga instructor. A 40-year student of the Cayce readings, Judith has made a special study of the transformative principles in the "Search for God" material and the readings on creativity and the arts.
