Creative Visioning Retreat

November 24 to 26, 2023


You’re standing at the threshold of a new year…you see glimpses of what lies ahead – work, play, maybe some travel, gatherings with family and friends, new possibilities and adventures that open your heart (and your feet) to step forward…BUT WAIT!

Before you venture into this new year, it’s important to review the one you’re leaving behind.  Honour it as you would a sacred text – because it IS sacred – it’s part of your life story!

What in your life is calling you,
when all the noise is silenced, the meetings adjourned...the old lists laid aside,
and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest...

What still pulls on your soul?

No matter how much you plan, life may take you on unexpected detours and things won’t always turn out as expected. Things can change quickly: deep disappointment, loss, grief, and ongoing adjustments are part of everyones experiences. My hope is that moments of love, beauty, courage and resilience were also among the treasured highlights in your year.

Take a moment to ponder these questions:

What stands out from the current year?

What feels undone? 

What still pulls on YOUR soul?

Now – in this liminal space – is where honest reflection occurs, where dreams are resurrected, new ideas and possibilities allowed to emerge, and opportunities explored. Now is the time for letting go of the old stories that don’t serve you anymore…and a time for planning and planting a new vision for the coming year.

Resolutions vs Intentions

You might ask, “Aren’t they the same thing?” Say each word out loud, and notice how they feel on your tongue and in your body. Can you sense the difference?

Resolutions come from a place of needing to fix something – or like carrying a heavy burden that will inevitably be dropped –  followed by self-criticism and loathing about having failed yet again. It’s a lousy way to start the new year. 

On the other hand, intention feels softer: it allows for self-compassion and acceptance of where you are now. It allows for the unexpected. It implies trust and a deep knowing that you have the ability to access an inner guidance and wisdom that will lead you to where you want to be.

Abandon Resolutions & Embrace Intentions!

Create Your Best Year!

Join us for a weekend of
creative visioning
and begin your year with intention!

what we'll do:

  • Reflect and review the year that is coming to a close;
  • Connect to what has grown and release the stories that no longer serve you;
  • Turn inward and engage in deep listening to discover what is wanting to reveal itself to you;
  • Identify and define the main areas of your life (i.e. health, community, etc) that you want to focus your attention on;
  • BE the gardener of your own well-being: gather meaningful words and images to plant as seeds for tomorrow’s unfolding;
  • Create an Intention Journal: a visual container for the creative force that wants to flow to you and through you; a guiding light moving you towards the dreams, wisdom, and gifts of your own true becoming.


INTENTIONALLY choosing images and words that represent things you want to change or bring into your life aligns your attention and intention, and are more likely to come true.

Believe you can and you're halfway there!
