Introducing A Creative Unfolding, a restorative retreat in Mexico to reconnect to your inspiration

July 02, 2019 | 0 comments

Are you in need of a true rest to reconnect with your inner inspiration?

Have you been dreaming of starting a creative career or passion project, and need to find the space and support to get started?

Maybe you’re making your boss or clients’ dreams come true, but are burning yourself out in the process, losing the spark that got you started on your creative path.

Join designer Sarah Drake and yoga and ceremony leader Sam Bianchini for a week in paradise to give yourself the gifts of time to rest in a beautiful and inspiring setting, space to reflect on the values that connect you to your offerings, supportive tools to help you deepen the creative gifts that are already inside of you, and loving guidance along the way.

Imagine the luxury of spending a week to yourself, dedicated to deepening your purpose, with only the light you provide guiding your way to your thatched roof palapa. Rock yourself to sleep in your own personal hammock to the sound of leaves rustling outside, adding to the chorus to your dreams. Allow the scent of salty ocean air to accompany you as you go deep inside your purpose with guided daily yoga practice. Day dream to the view of the powerful Pacific from your open air cabana. Learn new mediums in art classes that support the process of creativity, and uncover your innate inspiration with writing and guided reflection processes. We meet at award winning Haramara in Sayulita, Mexico Jan 11-17, 2020 for just this: a deep dive into the creative process that drives the offerings and purpose in your life.

You will leave with a clear definition of the values that inform your purpose, a deeper respect for the creative process, a helpful and beautiful guide to reflect on your practices after you return home, and the confidence to embrace your own personal path to creativity.
