   Time & Space to be Creative and to reawaken your inner artist

Creativity thrives in all sorts of ways but one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is simply the time and space to allow your creativity out to explore.

What better place to do it than Assisi, amidst beautiful countryside, great food and like-minded people, with centuries of inspiring art and culture all around you? Actually, the point is you can make time and space to be creative wherever you are, and this weekend retreat helps you reconnect, recharge and refocus your energies, so that you can get right into the heart and soul of what really makes you tick.
 
Michelle and Michael bring their painterly, poetic and photographic sensibilities to this inspiring weekend and set you off on a series of mini-adventures, some looking inwards and others looking outwards to this beautiful countryside and the wonder of Assisi itself. Engaging you with the challenges and joys of simply paying attention, increasing your awareness and tuning in, they use photography, poetry, painting; that golden triangle of creativity where one informs the other, walking and Tango too! Yes we dance in the evenings to relax and laugh a lot too, to help immerse everyone in the simple pleasures of being together and creating beyond ourselves

 

 



 

Once you get started, these creative adventures tend to take on a momentum of their own, carrying you along with them. and Michelle and Michael’s intentions are that you come away refreshed, clear and enthused about the next steps in your own creative journey…

A typical day starts early with an 8,30 breakfast after which we do Ci Kung or Tai Chi around the pool followed by some mind/ body preparations for the day ahead, which will be both studio based and as often in the surrounding countryside and Assisi itself.
