IT HAPPENS EVERY MARCH. A select group of creatives and creative professionals gathers in Taos, New Mexico, each committed to creative work that matters. Writers, artists, therapists, teachers, entrepreneurs, consultants, doctors, and others. They have books and stories to write, designs to shape and explore, a spiritual journey to create into, a midlife launch to develop, a start-up idea to immerse in. And they’re committed to affecting the world through their creative work and creative life.
They have other obligations in life – families, businesses, jobs – but they come because of their commitment and because they need common things that we provide:
1 – Time & space to create deep
2 – Workable, flexible, repeatable processes & tools to tweak how we create-n-work at home
3 – Inner knowledge & awareness (a hallmark of gratified creatives)
4 – Know-how in the Art of Deep Story (applicable for any creative in any medium)
I have kept costs affordable for this one-of-a-kind retreat. Many people have returned 5, 6, 7 years in a row. It’s the Create & Captivate Retreat – Taos.
Capture your imagination.
Create what matters.
Captivate the audiences whose lives you want to touch.
If you’re ready for a substantial retreat to go deep into your creative work, creative mind, creative work flow, as well as the aspects of Deep Story that drive almost all creative human beings, then I invite you to join us.
The Create & Captivate Retreat for Creatives & Creative Professionals happens at the legendary Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico, on March 10-15, 2013.
And you have until October 8 to take advantage of the Early-Bird discount. The limited spots are already going fast.
I’m lucky enough to join this remarkable group. With the aid of my radiant Chief-in-Charge-of-Delight Heidi Johnson, we facilitate a sequence of experiences – some guided, some self-initiated, some solitary, some collaborative – that let you get immersed in what matters and consider how to captivate the packs and audiences that matter.
And, yes, environment matters. I’ve recently shared three videos with the Create & Captivate Inner Pack that expose the choices I’ve made for shaping my own studio & conference room. These environments let me flourish (even when I flounder). At this retreat, we have to our advantage Taos’s eye-popping skies and mountains and sunsets plus the Mabel Dodge Luhan House’s luminaries (including Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams and D.H. Lawrence), supportive staff, fantastic (and semi-custom-order) food, adobe classroom, breakout cabin, as well as paths & shops a walk away. But Heidi and I also know how to create a safe space rife with delightful surprises.
And being in Taos on the cusp of spring is an incomparable way to usher in your best self’s season.
Check in. Look ahead at your horizon for this winter and spring. If something rings true in you that says you need to be here, trust it. Show up. Join us.
And don’t forget you have only until October 8 to take advantage of the Early-Bird discount.
What was the best retreat experience you’ve ever had? What made it so? What do you most seek from a retreat experience?
See you in the woods (and on the arroyo),
