Special things happen

When Creatives Come Together

We create long-lasting friendships, and beautiful memories and inspire

each other to be brave in expressing our individuality.

We lift each other up, share stories, and bloom as individuals as the need to create is inherent in our souls.

When we take the time to feed and nourish our inner sparkle we feel joy. Let your creativity flourish! In our busy world, by slowing down to live mindfully, and giving ourselves permission to explore, be curious, connect and share, our days automatically become richer and more fulfilling.

Creativity is not reserved for writers, actors, and artists, it is a gift we all possess, and inspiration is there within each of us. We just need to open our eyes and see it.

When you connect with other creatives at our retreats you will find the joy of being creative, flourishing along with others, and sharing the mindset that anything is possible!
