While being masked I felt like a child again free and unencumbered by my learned identity
and all the should I grew up with.” – past participant

Partners will take turns masking each other guided by step-by-step instructions from the facilitators. One mask will be completed in the morning session which will include a sharing of the experience by the “masker” and the “maskee.” A break will happen about 12 noon. You are welcome to bring lunch or go to a nearby restaurant. The second mask will be completed in the afternoon

Mask Creation is a 4-step process:

Step 1: an all-natural bees wax based lubricant is applied to the face to ensure the mask can be removed. Tissue is place over mustaches beards and eyebrows for easy removal.

Step 2: While relaxing music is playing 2 layers of plaster dipped in warm water are placed on the face.

Step 3: Complete process takes about 45 minutes during which the person being masked may relax fall asleep or use the time for meditation and or reflection

Step 4: When the process is complete the mask is removed.

Comments from previous participants:
“As the first layer began to harden, I felt more and more removed from the process and became more relaxed and deeper into myself. It almost felt like a birthing process as the mask was lifted off.”

“While being masked I felt like a child again free and unencumbered by my learned identity and all the should I grew up with.”

“Seeing my mask, I truly know that I am here and want to be What a great face! There is none other like it.”

Robert Audet Bio:
Robert learned and fell in love with mask making with friends in Boulder, CO in 1992. That next year, following an inspiration with housemate, Jacy Sundlie, the two created a mask making business, creating art exhibits and touching opportunities to work with people infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS or cancer leading them and their business to fundraisers in Minnesota and Wisconsin and ultimately taking the work to Flagstaff, AZ, Colorado and Virginia. Robert left the business in 1997, and Jacy continued until 2001. Robert has a 27-year career in biological and biomedical research and is currently the senior scientist at a Flagstaff biotech company. His passion for mask making rises from time to time, most recently in a men’s retreat workshop as part of a self-exploration exercise.
