LSS sponsors several annual Signature Events workshops for NICE and The Polk Street Review and Page & Stage Theatre, Co. Check for details on each page. Here are a few upcoming workshops:

Tranquility Retreat

Hosted by Sacred Heart of the Rose, our Tranquility Retreat is November 12 (2017) from 2p – 4p at Logan Street Sanctuary. In it, we will discuss today’s bombardments of negativity, and we will explore ways of turning negative energy into positive energy. For many of us, the upcoming Holiday season increases stress, and we can easily get overwhelmed by negative headlines in the news and social media. Sometimes, we just wish we could unplug and run away! Well, you don’t have to run far ~ join our Tranquility Retreat! Within two hours, we’ll discuss our stresses and concerns, and explore ways to turn down the volume of negativity and stress in our lives.
The Tranquility Retreat is free, but we encourage generous donations ~Sacred Heart of the Rose is a 501c3 nonprofit volunteer spiritual organization, and your donations help us stay in our location at Logan Street Sanctuary. You can donate when you arrive or online via our secure Square Market (Under “Shop”, click on “Sacred Heart of the Rose Donations”). You do not have to be a member of Sacred Heart of the Rose to attend the retreat, but annual membership is only $25, so please feel free to become a member today! Memberships will be available at the Retreat, and securely online via this link

2018 The Polk Street Review’s Walk, Photograph, & Write Noblesville Workshop

Hosted by The Polk Street Review, this workshop on November 18 (2017) is from 2p – 5p at Logan Street Sanctuary. Join us for a workshop where you will create two submissions to the upcoming 2018 edition of The Polk Street Review! The only tools you’ll need are your legs (and weather-appropriate clothing!), your cell phones, and whatever you like to write on ~ paper or laptops/tablets. We’ll guide you in setting your cell phone cameras to their best resolutions and then we’ll walk a few blocks over to the heart of Noblesville to take photographs of whatever catches your artistic eye! Then, back at Logan Street Sanctuary, where the rest of the workshop will focus on writing something ~ paragraph, poem, short story, song lyrics, memoir ~ inspired by your favorite cell photo from the walk ~ and viola! You will then have created TWO submissions to the 2018 edition of The Polk Street Review ~ an image and a written piece! Part of the workshop will also guide you in downloading a free app to transfer your image files to us directly from your cell phones in their original high resolution format, so they’ll look their best in the published book. If you’re familiar with Noblesville, this workshop is a great way to “see” something new in a familiar place! If you don’t already have a connection to Noblesville, the workshop automatically meets the “Noblesville connection” criteria for submitting to The Polk Street Review.                                                                                                                                                                       Workshop Fee(s):

Songwriters Chris WilsonJohn Gilmore, and Zach Craft will guide you through the three hour workshop: about an hour for class, an hour for a writing session, and then everyone will have about an hour to present what was written in sessions.
