Embodied Artist Desert Retreat for Creative women and nonbinary folks
Dates: November 10th – 13th, 2022
We are looking for women identifying and nonbinary folks who are Artists; actors, writers, visual artists, directors and musicians to take part in a transformational experience in the high desert in California.
We will nourish and explore our bodies and open our voices, so we can ignite the fire of creative inspiration within.
This will be a clearing, meditative and journaling experience, as well as a robust, expansive celebration of Self while in community.
There will be 6 – 8 hours of programming on Fri/Sat and 3 – 4 hours of programming on Thursday/Sunday, for a total of 18 – 24 hours.
“This was an incredibly eye-opening and transformative experience. I learned so much about myself and my peers. Being silent for the first 24 hours was important to allow ourselves to unplug from the pressures and noise of the outside world.”
“The workshops encouraged me to engage my imagination, turn inward, and let go and be.”
“I learned a lot of tools to calm my nervous system that I have taken away with me and continued in my everyday life. It was important to me that this retreat focused on the artist in all of us. I learned to slow down, and that that is okay. The enjoyment of existing actually encourages creativity. I felt like I rediscovered my love of my art there.”
“Beautiful location, delicious food, wonderful company, challenging and exciting programming and an exceptional opportunity.”
“This retreat brought up so many powerful realizations for me. It has given me so many things to continue to excavate and work on. It helped me realize how I am speaking in relation to both myself and other people and applying what I learned at this retreat is really helping me embody who I want to be. I really liked that different healers were incorporated so you got to experience lots of different styles and approaches.”
“My experience at the retreat was really gentle and expansive. So much space was held for processing individually and together. The first 24 hours in silence really set a president for internal discovery and reflection. All the programming was extremely supportive and helpful. Thank you so much!”
