“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” - Brene Brown

LOCATION: Cypress Hills, SK


Do you want to get back in touch with your creative spontaneous expressive self? There is a place inside of you that wants to feel free, joyful and alive.

Need a break? Life can feel like a bit of a mad house. Feeling like a ball of stress? There’s never a better time to detox & start living your life with more intention, more presence and more authenticity. You have permission to be as creative as you need – this art will not end up on walls, it might not even end up on your fridge - this art lives in you and you deserve to express it.

Inhale… exhale… and scroll on to discover the value of expressive art and how it can bring balance to your life.

The three days will be spent:

  • Guided mindful exercises
  • Guided nature walks

  • The ability to move past distractions and scattered thoughts
  • Accessibility to unconscious thoughts - and your ability to alter them (aka. cognitive distortions, "the stories we tell ourselves")
  • Realizing the "part you play" in your life & interpersonal communications
  • Sitting with your feelings, beginning to know them, learning from them
  • Permission to go into the deepest parts of yourself
  • Something new will come into being - enhancing your desire for self expression (and to be seen & heard)

Who is this retreat for?
YOU! Anyone. Everyone. If you’re feeling bogged down with duties and responsibilities and you want a place to play, a place to have some fun and a place to feel grounded & balanced again. You will be recharged and rejuvenated by diving into the bottomless well of your own creative energies. You will be supported to reclaim your personal courage. You will develop greater trust in your intuition, your inner guidance and your authenticity. 

Do I have to be "good" at art?
First things first, "good" is a matter of opinion and here "opinions" are not part of the process. I personally guarantee that you and your creativity will feel embraced and validated. Your personal expression will be encouraged to bloom, blossom and grow like some beautiful prairie crisium!

Do I have to have experience with meditation?
No, this is not the Eat, Pray Love version where you sit in robes and meditate in silence for hours. This is the kind of meditation that flows, is easy and most importantly short.

Can I bring my spouse and children?
Yes. If you would like to have your family enjoy Cypress Hills while you attend the workshop, all of the reserved rooms have two queen beds. If you pay the single occupancy fee you have the entire room to yourself. Invite them if you want them.:)

Can I stay longer?
Feel free to extend your time in Cypress Hills before or after the workshop. There is so much to see and do in the area. Contact the Cypress Hills Resort to check availability.
