Raise your vibration with creative expression!
June 4th – 6th, 2021
Let’s face it, this past year has thrown us all some curveballs. Creative expression can be a tool for sorting through those energies we’ve been holding onto & releasing them so that we can move forward with clarity. The Creative Renewal Virtual Retreat is designed to inspire, uplift, and help you raise your vibration.
- Learn hands-on creative tools for personal transformation
- Uplift your energy with musical performances
- Nurture your Creative Spirit with guided meditations
- Develop friendships with others on a path of spiritual living and creative expression
We’ve taken our popular Creative Renewal annual Retreat and given it a make-over for its first ever online appearance. Enjoy three days worth of inspirational presenters from diverse cultural and artistic backgrounds. Program offerings such as mixed media journaling; process painting; song & chanting; movement; and meditation will gently guide you within to uncover blocks and move you into the full expression of your creative nature. No prior artistic experience necessary.
