New Year's Day Art Retreat

UPDATE: This event is now Sold Out!! But if you want to go through this clarifying creative process, you can sign up for the online version of this retreat, sign up here!

Every New Year, I crave clarity and a creative refresh. The New Year is a potent time; a hopeful time. A time to dream big, and to tenderly integrate the learnings and yearnings of the past year. In the past few years, I have grown increasingly QUIET on New Year’s, taking time to paint, collage, write, and reflect.  I’ve developed a ritual to help shepherd myself through this time of transition, and to set the stage for a powerful year. And on New Year's Day, I would love to share this process with you so you can begin your new year from a powerful, clear, creative place.

Enter the New Year’s Day Creative Re-TREAT. We will gather and create, write and share and connect, and launch ourselves into the New Year from a powerful place. You can look forward to a luxurious experience, with snacks and lunch and all the details handled, so that you can come, immerse, and enjoy. Sound good? As a Wonderletter subscriber, you get priority registration. I taught this retreat last year and it sold out quickly - so don't delay! 

You’ll come away with:

  • A sense of completeness about your year in 2018.

  • A big vision for your year in 2019

  • A piece of original art that reflects your big vision. (No art experience required - all levels welcome)

  • Clear, bite-sized actions steps to lead you towards your goals in 2019.

  • Encouragement and a circle of creative colleagues to share in this process!
