Taking time to go on a personal creative retreat is a fabulous way to reconnect with your inner spirit.  It’s giving yourself the gift of time by getting away from distractions and daily life responsibilities.  A retreat may be needed when you are feeling burnt out from life.

This painting retreat offers participants the opportunity to tune into their imagination/intuition – listening to the sound of their heart and soul.  We’ll begin with opening mini-motivational discussions about expressive arts and the intuitive painting process… discuss how students5to follow your energy while painting.  You’ll hold space for each other with compassion and kindness.  Music, short meditations, and movement will be used to experience the mindset of (BE HERE NOW).  Two intuitive process painting sessions (morning and afternoon) will provide participants plenty of time to bravely enter into their portal of creativity and imagination.  ART experience not necessary for this FUN and CREATIVE retreat.

As your facilitator, I create this safe space for participants to be seen and heard with compassion for their unique, amazing, creative, imaginative self as they follow the energy of their inner spirit using the process of intuitive painting.

During this retreat participants will concentrate on getting in touch with their (EMOTIONS = energy in motion) and create a critic free zone instead of focusing on the end painting product!  This retreat is located in a charming studio where everyone is welcomed and invited to kick off their shoes… and make themselves at home.  Participants will experience being in a creative circle, connect with new friends, enjoy delicious meals, explore a magical spiritual garden, explore lovely water areas, enjoy golf cart rides, walk/hike, watch sun sets, and (weather permitting) sit around bonfires at night.

Participants will be encouraged to devote time for a creative art making practice after leaving retreat.
