A Virtual Retreat

2020 has been a doozy, to put it politely. We are being stretched in ways we didn't know were possible. Our reserves are tapped and yet we are finding a deeper wellspring of fortitude. 

And yet, this upside down year is proving to be a marathon, not a sprint. What can we do to continue to sustain ourselves, fuel our creative fires and in turn our own mental, physical and spiritual health?

Welp, a getaway retreat weekend is off the table, so Sarah and co-conspirator/mum Gwen Ratermann have cooked up a virtual retreat. Attendees will receive a package of tools to be used at your own pace:

  • a handmade journal

  • writing prompts

  • creativity exercises

  • readings to inspire

  • meditations and yoga practices

  • tools to foster a maker's heart

  • ritual supplies 

Do them all together in one inspiring weekend or pepper them through the darkening late fall weeks.

November 14 : kick off with an inspiring Zoom call 


December 13: reconnect to celebrate our experiences and breakthroughs 

Through opening this window to the creative soul, we are able to better care for ourselves, our families, our work and our communities.

We are offering this retreat on a sliding scale model of payment in order to promote trust, inclusivity and reciprocity.

We trust you to choose the price based on what is appropriate for you.

We invite you to consider our personal resources and our levels of privilege when deciding what to pay. We hope in this small way we can challenge capitalist norms and make space for inclusivity in our work.

Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the standard price, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility.
