Reset, Recharge and Renew this winter with a special Conscious Creativity Retreat.
Ready to bring more joy and meaning to your creative work?
Do you want to ignite or re-ignite your creative practice?
Does exploring the creative process with a supportive group of creative seekers sound fun?
This unique 5-day workshop will energize your creative practice in new, meaningful ways that are aligned with who you are, on your own unique path.
Join me and a wonderful group of creative explorers for an immersive experience at the inspiring, tropical paradise that is Hacienda Mosaico, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Conscious Creativity Retreat will focus on creative exploration, connectivity, and finding your flow.
We’ll explore topics such as learning to pause and be present with our creative practice, mindfulness, igniting inspiration, exploring the extended mind and somatic creativity, activating enjoyment, creative play, and more.
I’m so excited to be offering this workshop again this winter !
Inspired by my Conscious Creativity series courses, offered throughout the past two years, I’m happy to announce this in-person, hands-on, Creativity Retreat for the second year in a row.
The workshop combines creative exploration, discussion about the creative process, and creative prompts that will help you tap into your wellspring of creative energy.
We’ll have the opportunity to explore group movement sessions, time for contemplation and pause, and some inspiring group activities. Hacienda Mosaico offers a wonderful container for all this, plus great food, beautiful art, lush flora, and a sparkling pool.
We‘re going for a good balance of Being and Doing in this workshop.

What to expect
Five days of creative time, including…
Inspirational discussion topics around creativity and creative practice. We’ll begin each morning with our morning circle, where I’ll be offering a topic for discussion, including a range of inspirational support materials and resources for further investigation.
Personal project: We’ll launch into the week with a creative prompt to inspire a personal project that can be created using a range or combination of materials. Project focus: Mandala-inspired piece using mosaic, mixed-media, collage, and/or natural elements
Daily creative prompts: I’ll be offering daily creative prompts for those who want to work on multiple, smaller projects. Experimentation and play will be encouraged!
My aim is to create an open, generative experience for participants with lots of options and freedom to choose what they are called to explore in the moment. At the same time, I’ll be there to support participants with technical instruction, guidance and suggestions.
Note: I’ll provide a variety of mosaic and collage materials, and surfaces to work on in a variety of sizes. We will also have access to paint and general art supplies. Participants are encouraged to bring any special or specific materials they want to experiment with.
Gentle Movement: Gentle movement sessions with a yoga instructor 2 mornings during the week (optional.)
Relaxation and chillaxation time for pause and integration. There are many beautiful nooks and crannies at Hacienda Mosaico to sit and think, or write, or have a quiet chat. Official workshop activities will end in late afternoon, leaving plenty of daylight for free time. Hacienda Mosaico is located in a lively residential neighborhood – great for exploration.
Amazing food and atmosphere. Hacienda Mosaico is a hidden urban oasis, full of lush flora, beautiful art, mosaic murals and installations (many created by my students and me!) and good vibes. Breakfast and lunch (provided on workshop days) are positively spa-like… Super healthy, delicious and satisfying. Honor bar available anytime. For dinners, there are a huge range of wonderful restaurants within walking distance and in the “Romantic District” of PV, a short and inexpensive taxi ride away. Workshop participants often choose to have dinner together and we will organize at least one (no host) group dinner during the workshop.* For those who like to stay in, there are lots of carry out restaurants and taco stands. There is also a kitchen on site for workshop participant use.
Optional evening activities: The studio will be open in the evenings if you want to work on your own or with others. We’ll leave room for fun and exploratory activities, gatherings and outings. See list below.*
Wonderful people. Need I say more? Our hosts Sam and Xeno and the incredible staff at Hacienda Mosaico help make the experience unforgettably special. Every workshop I have offered at HM has drawn amazing people, all unique. Introverts, extroverts, ambiverts alike enjoy these experiences. Friendships are forged, laughter is shared, dopamine is flowing.
Note: I’ll provide fun mosaic and collage materials, and round and square surfaces to work on in a variety of sizes. We will also have access to paint and general art supplies. Participants are encouraged to bring any special or specific materials they want to experiment with.
