THE MONTEREY PENINSULA: Brave • Soul*Full • Intuitive You! – to be announced

Let go. Be bold. Unfold.

In this playful heart-centered retreat with Flora Bowley and Catherine Just, we will explore a whole new way of painting and photography from a space of freedom, non-judgment and experimentation. This process is about loosening up, letting go of expectations, trusting yourself, having fun and allowing your art to unfold naturally. The emphasis is on finding your own true voice and allowing your personal expression to bloom and grow with flow and ease. Create from a more authentic place, expand your awareness, and transform your life.

~This retreat is now full – but we do have a waiting list.~
People do sign up and drop out so do call Sheri and
let her know you would like to be on the list
(it moves very fast)!


Creative Unfolding

For 4 nights and 3 full days we combine spiritual practice with photography and painting for more mindful self-expression. Through a deeper understanding of ourselves we find our way back to the essence of who we are with clarity and lack of judgment. There will be exercises to move you more toward gratitude, opportunities to focus on your physical well being (because it feels good to feel good!) and connection with like-minded women where you can discuss and share your experiences in a safe supportive environment. Mix all that with rest and rejuvenation and you’ve got the ingredients for a more Brave • Soul*Full • Intuitive You!

Trusting Your Intuition

This is a process-based retreat that will empower you with a toolbox of new techniques as well as a new perspective to approach your work. This is a very playful, supported, and forgiving experience and no prior painting, photography or background in spirituality is necessary. All you need is an open mind. Trust – you are an artist already. So what are you waiting for?!!

Take Refuge by the Sea

Allow your senses to ignite from the breathtaking beauty of the Monterey Peninsula coastline. Invite the peace, quietude and meditative environment of Asilomar into your soul to help guide you back to your true authentic voice. So take a deep breath and settle in for a time of serene relaxation, reflection and spiritual rejuvenation. Situated within the quaint and scenic town of Pacific Grove, Asilomar offers guests the simple comforts of cozy cabins and rustic lodges – and an unforgettable escape from the demands of everyday life.

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

    How many people are in these workshops?

    I suppose if it was already sold out, the website would’ve said so, true?

    If I can swing the airport shuttle, can I do without a rental car?
