Healing Through Creativity Retreat

Thursday, April 21st, 6pm to Sunday, April 24th, 12pm

Four Springs Resort -- 14598 Sheveland Road Middletown, CA

Each soul longs to express itself creatively. Creative expression is a powerful form of healing and one of the best ways to renew our spirits. Creativity comes through all spirit beings whether you call yourself creative or not. Unfortunately, our society with its focus on perfection and competition, makes us feel as if our individual expressions are lacking because they seem not to measure up to others who are more celebrated. Yet, deep inside we can hear the calling, the desire to create a physical reflection of our souls - whether that is through writing, imagery, dance or song. Our spirits know that every individual expression is beautiful and worthy.

Through the act of creation we partner with source to bring beauty and meaning to the world. We follow our creative sessions with Circle discussions -- these deepen our understanding of each other, our creations, our creator, ourselves and our world. This retreat will fill you up through emptying you out. Pour out your soul and express pure beauty from deep within. Join us for this magical weekend -- renew your spirit

Explore your creative genius

This weekend is dedicated to allowing your creative genius the space to flow. Workshops are designed for the free flow of inspiration. This is a space where inner and outer critics are silenced. We are expressing for the joy of the process and not for the approval of society. We are partnering with the divine to realize our longings. We are allowing the spirit within us to shine.

  • Inspired writing - In this workshop we will first still our minds and call forth our inner guides in a powerful guided meditation. Then we will write as inspired and prompted. The session will let us explore creative writing from our souls as never before. We will be writing the wisdom from within and feeling the joy of pure expression.
  • Finding your voice - The words we put out into the world affect both the way others see us and the way we perceive ourselves. Public speaking is one of our biggest fears, but when we can claim our authentic voice, it can be one of our greatest assets. In this workshop you will learn how speaking your truth, authentically, can change your life. Gain confidence speaking in front of others, and practice techniques to bring out the true you, so you can stand in, and express, more of your true light.
  • Exploring sound & music - In this session you will create inspired music in a small group. Play with various instruments, jam in beautiful harmonies and let your spirit sing - literally!
  • Mindful Poetry - Delve deep within to discover your soul's true voice. Poetry is a channel for self-expression like no other. The act of writing poetry is like a wondrous release of our inner most being. The session will guide us in allowing our poetry muse to escape and delight us.

This retreat was the best thing I did for myself all year. It was so healing to take the time to bless each other, our bodies, our dreams, and even our soup. At the end of our weekend, my body was bubbling with new life, revitalized by the women at the sacred four springs.
