Refresh Your Creative Life

Do you sometimes want to run away for a weekend to dream, plan, and fill your creative well? 
This years Summer Retreat provides exactly that – a chance to reconnect with your creative joy and fuel yourself to finish the projects you care about. 
This year, creativity coach, author and artist Cynthia Morris will facilitate our fun and effective weekend. Through visioning, planning and creativity exercises, she’ll guide you to: 

• gain clarity about what’s needed to move your projects forward

• recommit to what motivates and delights you about your work

• design a creative life that works for you to finish your projects and have fun, too.

Cynthia is known for helping creative people get their important work done in their own way while having fun doing it. Join us for a full weekend that will refresh your creative life and enable you the time and space to work on your projects.
