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

In this retreat, we will explore natural world motifs, colors, lines, and liberated expressions through paint and mixed media. There is much power and healing that comes from painting in this way, which can serve as a potent and loving symbol and reminder for your life that emanates truth and purity. All materials will be included for a small fee, except surfaces to paint on (you will bring those based on Alena’s suggestions). We will be working in a beautiful and spacious studio space on the main level of the house and each of you will have your own 6 foot table for art making and your supplies. At the end of the experience, you will walk away with a few or more treasured paintings that not only have personal meaning, but are full of technique-based learning along with tapping into your intuition and soul-guides. This workshop is amazing for building depth to your portfolio, while increasing your knowledge on how to make gorgeous work. Alena will be sharing a lot of her tips and secrets with you, all the while going deep into our sweet soul work and enjoying the very chill vibe of the North Fork. We will also have a little time for a trip to other galleries, some shopping, and other delightful activities…. it’s going to be a rich and fulfilling experience for sure.

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. 

Meals: 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.
