Imagine you escaping a week humdrum life and writing under an umbrella at the beach. Hear the lapping waves at night after a day of peaceful, supportive, uninterrupted space, having been fed three incredible, healthy delicious meals a day. How creative would you be after a little yoga, or snorkeling, connecting with the Yucatan healing energy? Come create and play with other creatives in paradise. Wouldn’t you rather be somewhere warm, exotic and peaceful? Explore the funk in the sacred and the sacred in the funk. Raise your creative vibration, increase your joyfulness and relax into a deep state of peaceful creativity.
Imagine waking every morning to the sound of birds singing in the surrounding palms and vegetation and the warmth of the sweet Caribbean air. Indulge in a mug of Mayan coffee or herbal tea as the sun rises over the aqua blue ocean. You could make headway on even the most daunting project. Our retreats give participants time, space beauty and structure to work creatively. This lush and enchanting paradise has inspired many artists.
This ultra fun creative retreat will bring together mind-body-soul in union with writing, painting, dance, drum and yoga. This retreat taps into the joy of creativity by inviting you to write, paint or sing your dreams into reality. This beautiful and amazing truth of who you really are lives deep within you. You are already the perfect and right story, picture or song is just waiting to be fully expressed to the world hungry for your gifts and gorgeous light.
This is your opportunity to share your unique expression. You will experience connecting to the sounds and vibrations of the Yucatan and its mystical magic effects on your expression. See how intimacy with your artistic expression and your body allow you to tap into your personal creativity, break habits and discover unlimited potential.
Give yourself permission to create the expression bursting to come forth. Each participant is invited to work on a story or poem collection, write a daily journal cataloging personal narrative, or keep a sketchbook. At our retreats, painters and writers can join together in critique, devoting their free time to work on their own creative projects. All participants whether pursuing writing, painting or yoga or some combination of these endeavors, can benefit evenly from group activities, workshops and one-one-one sessions and free time.
This is your invitation to create your own unique expression. You will experience connecting to sounds and vibrations of music and bring forth an even deeper creative moment. See how intimacy with music, movement and your body allow you to tap into your personal creativity, break habits and discover unlimited potential.
Play with your inner “kid”. Take care of unfinished business so you can stop recurring and unsatisfying life themes. Shed your old stories and limiting beliefs for good and begin to create a brilliant new vision of yourself and your work in the world. Connect with your determination, kindness and honesty.
Through expressive movement, with a massive dose of play, celebration and song emerge with a clearer vision of whom you are and why you are here.
These programs fill well before the deadline and have space for 25 participants only – consider applying soon. If you are interested, please don’t miss your chance to spend time on a retreat with us!
