What stories would you write? What people would you meet? What places would you visit? What things would you create if you knew you COULD NOT FAIL?
What risks would you take if you realized that falling is another form of flying? What work of art would you slowly TURN INTO if you trusted yourself enough to dreamup and attempt the life you deserve and desire?
Come Away with Us for 7 Days of Art & Adventure!!!...
...Writing & Culture, Nature & Yoga, Inspiring Connections,Creative Troublemaking&EmpoweringLife Design on the magical Island of the Gods!... This March 27-April 3, you have a date with your creative destiny in... BALI, Indonesia!!!
Let go of what no longer serves you. Follow your heart. Rediscover your purpose. Face your fear. Reignite your courage. Fall in love with your vision. Stretch your comfort zone. Fuel your soul. Nourish your body. Free your mind. Rewrite your stories of survival into new stories of aliveness.
Most of our lives happen in the realm of the ordinary, caught in the routine of our daily to-do lists,postponing the wonder, ignoring our intuition, dismissing our creativity, quieting our hearts, delaying our hero's journey for "someday," or "later" when all of our pieces might be aligned.
The more connected we are through our screens and devices, the more disconnected we grow inside. Distracted by our shoulds, coulds and woulds, fully dependent on technology and yet alienated from our true desire, wekeep on going, going, going...
Meanwhile, our encounters with the infinite, our oneness with nature, our times of authentic connection with others, our episodes of surrender to the sacred mysteries of life... are becoming shorter, harder to notice & too scattered to enjoy...
✔ Your creative juices have stopped flowing and you've been feeling stuck, directionless, uncertain or uninspired in one or more areas of your life.
✔ You are restless yet rootless, your soul is often homeless & longing for a deeper, more authentic connection to your true self & to like-minded creative conspirators.
✔ You want to open up to life again, but you don't feel safe, understood or motivated in your usual surroundings. You need inspiring and supportive company to help you break through and let go of what is still holding you back.
✔ You're an adventurer at heart. You often feel the need to stretch your comfort zone, along withthe desire to explore yourself as you explore the world. You need to break free from routine and make some space to learn yourself anew.
✔ You have a strong appreciation for the Arts, a deep desire to create, and an insatiable curiosity about other cultures & ways of life -- and you'd like to further awaken & nourish this passion within you.
✔ You're looking fora solid, endless source of inspiration, a grounding creative power, a satisfying fountain of life, that comes from within, transcends your limitations & feeds your soul for months & years to come.
✔ You don't just want to be informed & entertained by an experience; you need to be transformed, touched to the core, and challenged to be more.
Through workshops in Writing, Creative Troublemaking & Empowering Life Design, combined with Yoga & Meditation, time in Nature, local Adventures, Friendship & Connection, the Creative Rehab Bali experience will jumpstart your heart and help you:
... APPRECIATE YOURSELF AS A CREATOR, own your worth & understand your crucial role as the Artist of Your Life. Empower your vision, give meaning to your mission, and start designing your life, work and message in this world, with renewed purpose & passion.
... LOVE YOUR BODY, as youbecome more aware and sensitive to the truths that it whispers. Reconnect with nature and recognize yourself as an essential part of it.
... BE ROMANCED BY LIFE and recover the spiritual truths, the transcendence & the divine appreciation of beauty you have lost in the trenches of fighting for your dreams, instead of dancing towards them.
... REIGNITE YOUR CREATIVITY, get fresh ideas, insight and energy, by standing on a different vantage point, and light your tired heart back on fire.
... REWRITE YOUR STORY of survival into a truer and more fulfilling Story of Aliveness. Reframe your mind to start regarding life from a Creator's Paradigm.
... CONNECT WITH LIKE-MINDED CREATORS, Artists, Entrepreneurs, Adventurers, Free-spirited Nonconformists, and Soulful Troublemakers like yourself, who will inspire you to dig deeper, love yourself better, and dare to create the life that's been waiting for you all along.
Famous for its breathtaking natural beauty, luscious rainforests, surf beaches and coral reefs, as well as its magnificent temples, warm & welcoming culture, delicious food and world-class accommodation — topped only by the hospitality, kindness and creativity of its people, Bali has become one of the most visited and beloved islands on the planet.
There is something about this place that is hard to put into words — a vibrant joyful energy, a human warmth, an intoxicating beauty, a palpable love of art, a sacred mystery that has continued to invite, captivate and inspire thousands of restless visitors from all over the world, for decades.
If we could choose ONE WORD to describe the Balinese attitude and culture, it’d be CELEBRATION.
The Balinese celebrate nature, family, animals, the earth, their gods, and each other, more frequently and openly than any other culture.
Their celebrations usually consist of acts of gratitude,purification ceremonies, sacred music, dance and offerings, followed by family meals and quality time together.
There's a contagious joy emanating from the way they live their life and share it with others, that catches on and makes you feel at home, no matter where you come from.
We didn't really choose Bali for this adventure. Bali has chosen us.
We just tuned in and listened. We paid attention to the signs and we surrendered to our infinite creative nature, and suddenly we found ourselves in paradise co-creating something we would have never dreamed possible, had we not leaped into the beautiful unknown.
The best thing after finding a treasure is sharing it with those who get it, need it, want it, seek it too. This March, we want to share Bali with you...
We'll write & play, eat healthy food and laugh, do yoga and relax.
We'll meditate, practice self-inquiry, connect with nature, get reacquainted with the stories that our lives are telling.
We'll sail with dolphins at sunrise, and visit waterfalls and temples, and let ourselves be loved by Bali and its people.
We'll practice our creative self-expression, get out of our comfort zone, review our mission, vision & purpose on this planet, and start to redesign our lives in the truest version of us.
We'll get the most amazing massages and wellness treatments you've possibly ever experienced. Trust us...
We'll let go of what's holding us back, begin to know and love and trust ourselves again.
We'll remind each other that our lives are sacred, and that our voice, work and actions make a difference.
We'll take lots of pictures and videos. Check out #CreativeRehabBali on Instagram for extra snapshots by our creative troublemakers at last year's retreat.
We'll make new friends, co-warriors & creative accomplices that will support us in our breakthrough and root for our creative revolution.
We'll adventure into the peaceful Balinese Sea (North of Bali) for snorkeling & scuba diving.
We'll remember that the point of us is not survival, but aliveness, and that we are the Chief Creators of our life & love, work & reality.
Ready to take a leap in the direction of your heartbeats, explore the imperfect beauty and depth of your humanity, connect with nature and other creators, take a break from the rat race, and write your truest lines as you nourish your heart, mind and body back to life?
This retreat will not help you escape reality, but re-create it, by facing it wholeheartedly, fueled by your truth.
YOU! The Creator reading these lines. And any other friend or lover you would like to bring along.
Solo or accompanied, you will be joined by other creative troublemakers from around the world, ready to let go of what's holding them back and welcome their true selves, and fall in love with life for the first time, again.
We are attracting wisdom seekers and soulful creators from all walks of life, in search of not just adventure, but also life-changing content, not just the thrill & the beauty of travel, but also the substance of a deeper love affair with life, not just creative revolution but also the creative evolution that comes after each high.
If you can hear your Spirit's Call to a Creative & Fulfilling Life, MEET US IN BALI this March 27-April 3. You'll never be the same again.
