Our Dream retreat to the island of Zakynthos, Greece brought us potent inspiration, connection and insight. The women who joined us and led workshops and presentations were full of big visions. You is a visual diary of the retreat - and I will add in more details as inspiration strikes.
Day 1 - We gather to toast the start of the retreat! An artist, a coach, a spiritual entrepreneur, an author, a creator, an art studio owner, and a photographer spark so much magic, joy and inspiration - all are creative multi-passionate visionaries!
Followed by a moonlight meditation to invite in our vision.
Arise and Align gentle morning yoga sessions & spiritual wisdom with yoga teacher and breath-work practitioner, Paulina Podbiello. Working with Paulina is powerful and otherworldly.
I shared my signature workshop, intuitive painting, as I invited guests to unleash their creativity and deepen their connection to intuition. There is a point in every painting workshop, where the thinking mind relaxes & something else entirely takes over- I like to think of that moment as the connecting to the divine.
Day 3- Ancient Ancestors meditation with Wendy Moore, elite retreat coach encouraged guests to go deeper into their inner vision. Wendy also showered guests with chakra bracelets that diffused essential oils.
Day 4 - Hana, creator and stylist explores Seeing Life in Color with chalk pastels with artist, Fran Schlosser. Fran is a Calgary-based internationally collected artist, so we felt very lucky to have her with us in Greece.

Day 5 - Becky Edwards, author and financial coach delivered a mystical & thought-provoking presentation inspired by her book, Unlocking the Vault: How Reinterpreting Space Time theory is the Key to Understanding your the Universe, and so much more!
(side note: there were 3 published authors in the group- so writers are definitely welcome)
Day 6 - A magical adventure trip to the blue caves. The water was a stunning shade of turquoise.
It is worth noting that we covered 2 major activities in one day! It had rained the day prior and so we adjusted our boat tour day!
A culinary experience on a heritage olive farm recommended by a friend with a holistic skin care line- thank you, Stephanie - you were with us in spirit!
Paulina and Alia, our resident artist share a joyful moment in a garden..and lots of laughter in between.
The Dream retreat also included the opportunity to have mini-branding sessions!
Here's a peak behind the scenes of Erica, our photographer and Hana, our stylist doing their thing. We found that mini-sessions are opportunity to consider and communicate brand values, along with a chance to dive into the waters of creativity once again.
All photos are candids by retreat guests. Second to last photo by Erica Haskett photography - I look forward to sharing more professional photos with you soon.
