During our time together we will paint, play and be inspired. Our nourishing and safe space will allow for deep connection with eachother and with ourselves. 

You will relax & renew... 

Get ready to dig deep and reconnect with yourself and your creativity. 

Find your wild joy as we paint gorgeous expressive flowers and enjoy the special bond of women creating together. We will enjoy painting, music, movement, reflection, and sisterhood together that will refresh our creativity and rejuvenate our souls.

  • Opening & closing gatherings daily
  • Collaborative Painting Experiences

Enjoy the beauty of the North Fork of Long Island with it's lovely beautiful beaches, many vineyards and lovely seaside towns. 

If you choose to stay on site, you will be staying at North Sea House... a beautiful newly built estate with a pool, hot tub and beach for all retreat takers to enjoy. Ahhhh.... I wish I was there now... soaking my toes :) 

Please note: There are just 20 total participant spots available for this retreat. We have enough room for 12 participants to stay on-site at an additional cost. The remaining 8 may obtain lodging at one of the many nearby hotels or a couple of other homes we have access to. Onsite lodging will fill up fast so please reserve soon. We recommend reserving your room for the night before the retreat begins. 

Getting to the Retreat:

The closest airport is Islip (although flights are not as frequent there). Most of you will probably fly into JFK or Laguardia. You can rent a car and/or share rides/carpool. If you do not want to rent a car, the Hampton Jitney is a wonderful way to get from either of the above mentioned airports to the town where the retreat is being held. Let us know what your arrival time is and we will pick you up from the Jitney stop and bring you to the Retreat House only 5 minutes away. It's super convenient. 


Please let us know of any food allergies and dietary needs. Let us know of any concerns and we will do the best to accommodate you wherever possible.
