Meet Your Muse! (2 1/2 Day Retreat, Highlands, N.C.)

Meet Your Muse!

A 2 1/2 Day Creativity, Well-being, & Mindfulness Retreat

This lively process is a fun exploration into the colorful landscape of you - and a great way to connect with your inner muse to bring new energy into your life.  Using guided meditation and inquiry, you will create intentions for your process. Then, by  tapping into your creative unconscious, you will bring these intentions into recognizable, inspiring form - even if you've never picked up a paintbrush before!

“Ah yes..... ‘Body Prismatic’. I love the name of this fabulous opportunity to intuitively express our body image!!!! Magnifique’.... I am loving looking at the image I created. It seems to be medicine for my soul.” — Denise, FL Workshop

About The Mountain:

This retreat takes place at The Mountain Retreat & Learning Center in Highlands, N.C., a ecologically conscious center founded 35+ years ago by Unitarian Universalists whose doors are open to all.  Nestled among beautiful hardwoods and meandering forest paths, the cabins, lodge, and painting studio are perched 4,200 feet high upon granite cliffs overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. The views are breathtaking and the tranquil surroundings invite immersion into a world of natural wonder.

Accommodations & Meals

Lodging is double occupancy, shared rooms with a few single occupancy/private rooms available. Private rooms have limited availability and are first come, first serve. 

All healthy meals and snacks are provided in the center's large dining hall.

What is Body Prismatic™?

Designed in collaboration with Intuition Painting™ facilitators Pamela Hawkins and Elise Crohn, this one-of-a-kind workshop is for those of us who love stepping out of routine, indulging in feel-good activities, and letting our true colors fly.

Choosing poses and using our bodies as tracing templates, we outline our forms onto life-size paper.  Through creativity coaching, we access our intuitive flow and express ourselves freely with shapes colors, words, doodles and oodles of paint. Working in the midst of music, paints, pens, pastels, and found objects, we will find ourselves lost in the zone, having a blast.

It is a joy to watch everyone's expressions soften and begin to radiate with a resounding "Here I am!" kind of energy.  Our resulting colorful muses get to come home with us, and will continue giving us creative wisdom and inspiration long after the workshop is done.

These happiness boosting sessions serve up:
*** All the paint colors imaginable
*** Large body-length sheets of paper
*** A free space with no judgment or critiques
*** Creativity coaching and facilitation

No experience or training is needed. We keep our workshops small and personal, so if you'd like to save your place, please register on the right.


Includes 2 nights stay, 2 1/2 days instruction by a Master Intuition Painting™ Instructor, all meals, daily mindful stretching, and all art supplies.
