I lead workshops + retreats on soulful creativity for ladies.
A retreat for creative, soulful ladies
March 8-10, 2019
Held in a historic farmhouse on an organic farm just an hour and a half outside of Washington DC, we'll gather with 10 new friends for a weekend of creativity, healing, wellness and nature.
Picture a place where women of all ages feast on delicious foods while sitting around the fire pit. They're creating custom perfumes with essential oils, photographs with the sun's light, and singing to guitar music. Part summer camp, part spiritual gathering, part inspiration fest, this is Good Vibes Only: a retreat for creative, soulful ladies.
Transforming Your Ideas into Reality
The workshop will include free writing exercises, guided group reflection, and a creativity workbook. You'll leave with practices for how to make space to have more ah-ha moments, as well as strategies for how to transform your ideas into reality. By the end of the workshop, you'll have identified concrete next steps and small-yet-mighty "leaps" you can take to supercharge your ideas.
Manifesting isn’t about mystical spells. It’s about getting clear on what we want so we can recognize when the universe delivers. It’s a mindset shift that helps you sit in the driver’s seat of your life so you aren’t left reacting to whatever life serves up.
In fact, today is a great day to manifest the shit out of some abundance.
You’ll leave this workshop with a hand illustrated manifestation map, a set of badass original postcards to remind you of your manifesting superpowers, and a community to support you along the journey.
How to get unblocked
When ladies gather in a circle with guided support, we can be heard, supported, and tap into our innermost creativity and power. This workshop is for lady creators of all stripes -- from artists and writers, to folks starting new side hustles or working on research projects -- who want to be inspired and hold each other accountable to turn their latent creative aspirations into a reality.
This 2 hour workshop will include guided reflection, free writing exercises to help us tune into that little voice inside, and a chance for each person to brainstorm their creative idea with the group. Each person will leave with a hand illustrated guide for creating their own Circle of Magic after the class, as well as action steps for their creative project.
Cyanotypes: Photo-making with the sun's light
Cyanotypes are a magical process that let you create rich photographic prints using the sun’s light. One of the earliest forms of photography, cyanotypes transform the great outdoors into one big dark room.
In this workshop, we’ll be using natural objects to create our own custom prints. We’ll go through how to mix chemical solutions and the basics of composition to make sure you leave with art pieces you love. During the class, we’ll also discuss cyanotypes’ rich history. The method was invented by an astronomer before a lady botanist—and the first female photographer (!)—used cyanotypes to illustrate a book. We’ll be invoking the celestial legacy and feminine badassery of cyanotypes in our gathering, too.
You’ll leave the workshop with your own set of original cyanotypes, and a new circle of creative friends. Your gallery wall is about to get an upgrade.
Live Like Fine Wine: get better with age
It’s the elephant in the room of our lives: with every breath we take, we’re aging. For women, the thought of getting older can come with a lotta baggage. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This workshop is about making space for millennial women to shape their perspectives on aging. Because to live is to age - it’s the core of being human.
And we gotta be geared up to slay our whole lives long.
In this workshop, you’ll learn how to maximize your “aging ROI” by connecting to yourself, your community, and your spirit. You’ll leave with a map to guide you through a series of simple actions that you can take now in order to reap the benefits of a holistic life further down the road.
