Art of Living for Women

The Art of Living for Women offers seminars for women of all ages and stages of life open to learning more about culture in all its aspects. These seminars focus on the art of creating a home that fosters human flourishing.

Their modular curriculum combines classes, demonstrations, and hands-on experiences, giving women the skills they need to care for their family with confidence and artistry.

Here in Wisconsin, we host Art of Living seminars several times a year.
