You’re Invited to a Creative Retreat


In just two months, from Nov 1-3 at the Pearlstone Center in Maryland, I’ll be leading a creative arts and healing retreat for just 30 women.

The Mission.

To give a huge and generous gift to women.
To give women a time to reconnect with their essential selves.
To create a safe and energizing space for growth and healing.
To nurture and encourage women’s natural creativity.
To increase support and sisterhood.

What is it?
The Wholeness and Healing Retreat is a creative,
exploratory hands on, fun healing experience designed for you!
We’ll embark on the Retreat as healing adventure using writing and art to chronicle this journey.

We’ll also be using some secret powers!

1. The power of women coming together
2. The power of letting go and having fun!
3. The power of creative expression.
4. The power of Torah learning.

Coaching will also play a role in our work as we both learn skills and experiment with being with one another in a completely supportive, non judgmental way .

It’s a time and a place where we can breathe in and say “Ah, I”m home I’m back to myself, I’m recharging.”
Its seeing yourself with new eyes and old eyes and greeting this woman with a giant loving embrace.

This Retreat will be led by me, but is also a collaboration of artists, teachers and creators. Among our participants we are looking for Movement Teachers, Artists, Speakers, Jewelry Makers, Musicians, Writers and anything else you think would fit in. Don’t be shy, be creative! If you have something to share, we want to hear about it.

Because we need it. Because YOU need it. There is a world churning within us waiting for expression. There is healing to be done. There is release to be had. There is opportunity for discovery and enjoyment of our strengths and greatness.

You will GROW – closer to Hashem – closer to yourself. 

How?  Through breathing, dancing, crafting, painting, workshops, having FUN, making new friends, learning, thinking, bonding and playing! The more women I coach the more I see how essential this is. It’s like we think we’re going to be okay if we leave our creativity behind and just get stuff done. But we’re not. There is so much inside us waiting to be accessed. And if that’s not reason enough, remember – when WE recharge, everyone in our life benefits.
