I wish I had come up with the above title, but it’s the title of an upcoming Creative Retreat in Taos, New Mexico hosted/ led/ facilitated by the amazing Jill Badonsky. It’s happening at the Mable Dodge Luhan house– the historical artistic hub of Taos, NM, where folks like DH Lawrence, Georgia O’Keefe, Ansel Adams, Martha Graham, Carl Jung (and later Dennis Hopper) hung out.
I also wish I were able to attend the retreat, but alas it is not in the cards for me this summer–I’ll be attending the AROHO Writers Retreat in August. HOWEVER, if you want to make an investment in yourself and connect more deeply with your own creativity, then I can’t recommend Jill more highly.
It was several years ago that I first met Jill. I was working at the 101 Artists’ Colony, and had the opportunity to attend some writing workshops that she held at the Gallery. Then I signed up for a class, based on her book, The Nine Modern Day Muses and a Body Guard. (since then Jill has also published The AWE-Manac: A Daily Dose of Wonder.) If it weren’t for Jill I might not be a writer, I might still be working in an accounting office…
Jill’s books are filled with creative inspiration, and tricks to get you to connect with your creativity (no matter what you occupation).
Jill’s workshops are notoriously filled with silliness, yoga, writing, art, music, there may be hula hoops (you just never know). THIS retreat will include a stay at the historic Mable Dodge Luhan House, and gourmet healthy meals. The place, Taos, Mable’s house, are in and of themselves inspirational….
