Escape the stress of life and experience an amazing, magical journey into the mystery of your own creative intuition. The retreat gives you time and space to reconnect mindfully and passionately, get grounded and inspired, and re-ignite your radiance.

This ultra-relaxing, fun, inspiring, and transformative retreat is for adults with any level of art or yoga experience - including those with none. In our days together, mornings, afternoons, and some evenings will include Intuitive Painting, restorative yoga and stretching, a wine tasting, hillside walks, and lots of laughter. Participants report feeling a powerful release, rich sense of rebirth, and deep realignment to what is important and sustaining in life.  

What is Intuitive Painting?

Imagine being in a room with many jars of colorful paints, oversized easels with lots of room for exploring with color and form surrounded by an air of abundance, safety, and inspiration, and creativity coaching to help you dive in and let go. Our approach makes painting seem almost like dreaming on paper - images and colors bubble up from within, expanding, taking shape, changing form, without any preconceived expectations. The benefits extend well beyond the time you are in the art studio, as you'll discover how creative intuition brings flow into your life. Learn more.

The Beginner's Mind

For some of you, it may have been decades since you painted.  It will be surprising to you how quickly you will reconnect with the joy playing with colors and following the fun.  For others, you may make art for a living, and are feeling the need to begin making art for yourself again.

However you arrive, our time spent in mindful creative bliss and exploration will result in joyful, colorful accidents and the appearance of mysterious figures and shapes that do wonderful things for our brains. We get to surprise ourselves, invite imagination to rule for a while, experience life passing peacefully by, and remember how it feels to just to be.
