The Golden Fish Project is
The Golden Fish Project is an interactive camp for children ages 7-12. The Golden Fish is a true story about magic and dreams. In their art, they will create mixed media painting, colorful clay sculptures, and write short stories inspired by their experience. The young artists are invited to share who they are, what they love and enjoy.
Throughout the week, the students will take inspiration from nature, sketch the local Encinitas scenery, and tour the magical meditation gardens. In this camp, children will bring their dreams and imagination to life.
The Golden Fish Project will ignite the passion for making art, fueled by the magic within – the imagination.
Annie Macpherson has over six years of teaching experience. As a teaching artist, she has collaborated with over 25 schools throughout San Diego county. In her own art, she practices Sumi-e Japanese Brush Painting, mixed media, and writes children’s books. Her classes incorporate peace, art, and story.

As smart and competent as
As smart and competent as we are, as strong, as eager and as bold, there comes a time in every life when we feel called to pull out the stops and consciously choose to live with greater meaning and purpose.
“Conversations That Matter” gatherings provide opportunities to connect women like yourself to talk about what’s going on inside your head and heart and where you want to go next. We share the depth and breadth of the gorgeous legacies of our life experiences, grow what we value most and integrate our spirituality into our everydayness.
Join us on the second and fourth Monday evening each month from 6:30 to 8:30 PM and experience the well-being and deep satisfaction that comes when conversation becomes holy ground. Discussion threads include: “The Necessary Heart of Chaos,” “Creating Sacred Space,” “Letting Your Life Speak to You,” “To Thine Own Self Be True,” “Seeing Yourself As a Work in Progress,” “Having Your ‘Yes’ and Having Your ‘No.’”
Dare to ask for what you need and dare to respond and be well used. A life-changing experience and a rollicking good time await you!
Though Margaret has degrees in Art Therapy and spiritual psychology and has written 19 books, what contributed most to the woman she is today began in the midnight hours of her childhood – the long, intimate conversations with an unseen but palpable presence she called “The Magic” that filled her with uncharacteristic bravado and, sometimes, joy.
Twenty years later, in search of professional direction, she read a slogan about the literacy movement that gave direction to her life: “Teach a woman to read,” it said, “and you teach a family to read. Teach many women to read and society blossoms.” This was a strategy, she knew, that could be applied to any personal or societal transformation women turn their minds to; that our inner fire lights the world.
She began to bring women together to talk about their lives, good women who were—as she was and is to this day—yearning to live authentically and fully. Margaret has since created over 250 of these “learning communities” on issues that span the developmental divides of a woman’s life. Her book, “In Sweet Company: Conversations With Extraordinary Women About Living A Spiritual Life,” made a new woman out of her—and of thousands of women around the world. Her love of storytelling and her desire for “conversations that matter” brings her now to your doorstep. It’s her fervent hope that the workshops she leads and the writing she does moves you closer to what’s most meaningful to you.
Students will bring: Journal and pen.
