The Create + Connect Retreat taught us to have the strength and tools to step into and through the difficult times life has given us, to be able to find the beauty and joy among all of it. To be able to create something that keeps us grounded, something tangible and beautiful in its own way that shows us we’re not shattered pieces, but whole and among warriors.
Putting my hands into cold wet paint with my eyes closed, showed me a place of “silence”. A silencing of all those negative voices in our heads and not “quiet” as the weekend was filled with the sounds and sites of women chatting, crying and encouraging each other that made my heart and soul zing and soar! I felt deeply seen for ME.
We started as a group of strangers and left as sisters. The retreat wasn’t about the bond though, that was an unintentional gift. It was about healing, stepping out of your comfort zone, delving into creativity and finding your soul. I felt renewed and a step closer to healing.
Art Workshop Testimonials
The Playful Space has given me the ability to accept and love myself for all the things I enjoy instead of all the things I am known for being. I get to remove my accountant, wife, and dog mom hat and just be. Emily creates such beautiful experiences and sets up an environment that creates long term relationships and connections. I love knowing that The Playful Space is a part of my personal development and growth.
I have now attended multiple art workshops. Emily does such an amazing job at making all of her attendees feel safe, comfortable, and heard. Each person starts the workshop off a little nervous or anxious, but by the end none of us want to leave! I have left each workshop not only with new friends, but with a deeper connection to myself as well.
One on One Workshop Testimonials
Emily provides a safe space for women to come and discuss a multitude of topics in a way that makes you feel heard and understood. Plus, she encourages art in forms that I have not previously been comfortable with, and now I own several of the tools she has shown. Friendships are formed, laughs are shared, and a lasting impression is made. I am looking forward to attending a retreat with her later this year.
What a joyful, unexpected experience! Emily was such a kind listener and guided me through some prompts that really inspired me to dig into the inner me. I loved working with all of her art materials and created something I can cherish forever. If you are looking for a way to have fun, connect with yourself and make new friends- this is the best idea for you! I left feeling refreshed and inspired.
