Art for a peaceful and flourishing world



A retreat in France for those that want to connect to their Muse and bring deeper meaning, joy and spontaneity to their life. NO ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!

DESCRIPTION: Often people want to know how to be creative and I tell them you can’t just be creative, you have to prepare the ground to be creative. This is key!

During this retreat we will work at preparing the ground for creativity to emerge. Just like the plants flower when we take good care of them we will make the creative flow come out of us in a natural beautiful, intelligent movement.

It will be my pleasure to share with you the keys that I found to be absolute foundations to my creative process.

Some of the inevitable keys will be:

– Mindfulness practice

– Gentle stretching

– Self-care with massage from local Certified therapist

– Experiment with various art medium and/or your own creative gifts (writing, photography, starting a business, or even working on creating your own life…)

– Have fun!

Imagine flying away to find a nurturing caring family environment (Gaia’s French family will be our hosts), a safe and quiet place to relax in a charming, quaint small village along the Charente river in southwest France.

Combining years of commitment to my own art process and a recent certification as a creativity coach I will invite you to play with different exercise and techniques that will, without a doubt, bring out the Muse in you!

You will go back home refreshed, renewed and rested with a better understanding of the creative process. You will leave with concrete tips and tools that you can use in your own life whether it is to enhance your own art practice or to bring more creativity, fun, flow and grace, at work or any other areas of your life!

And you might just want to visit Paris before or after the retreat!
