Creative’s Retreat No 1 in Italy

“It’s been everything and so much more I could have ever wished for. Two years ago I envisioned a sacred time with like-minded people who share laughing and crying, who love and learn and grow together. But oh Boy! I faintly dreamed about a place like this, an inspiration itself, a home to form visions and to make plans.”

The single thing I missed most when I left my corporate job was: teaching. Helping others to find their way and to develop their own solutions has been what kept me in this job for so long. And after I quit and started my own business I quickly longed for sharing what I learned on my way. So I started teaching workshops and taking on 1:1 clients in my 12 months mentoring program and with the first results my beloved clients could see I knew that this is the very thing I wanted to do. Much more than photographing. (Although I am still in love with Photography) It feels like I’ve found what I was looking for.

I don’t have a coaching degree nor any other permission to teach than my experience and the need to SHARE. Because I BELIEVE that together we can make the most magical things happen. I believe that empowered women make these things happen and ultimately make this world a better place by finding their own way in a world of noise.

So last week Ron and I set out to Italy to host the very first Creative’s Retreat in a beautiful house in the countryside of Umbria. And although I had a clear idea of what the week would be like, finally sitting down with every one of the gorgeous women who attended totally blew my mind. It was for sure intense and I was really exhausted, but at the same time, I felt such a deep satisfaction, an unconscious realization that I am pursuing the very thing I need to do in my life.

Day 1 and 2 were super intense and to quote Vroni “we ripped off the band-aid” :D – a heavy start that was all worth it. To find out more about your own purpose and what is really holding you back from finally pursuing what you are meant to do might be challenging, but as I said (and what the attendees said too) it’s really worth it. And it’s so much easier to share the messy process of finding out instead of venturing this field on your own. 

Day 3 and 4 is about putting what you learned into reality and into practical action steps you can follow to build your empire. We talked all things from fuzzy dreaming and mindset to hard-hitting strategy. And still, there is enough time to follow through on your ideas you were carrying around, closely paying attention to keep them private. Until Day 3 of the Creative’s Retreat, this is when we turn them into plans <3 You got time to pick your own figs, to practice your sun salutation and to finally write that blog post AND get some new portraits of yourself. 

In the evenings we would sit together and enjoy a homemade dinner, tell each other stories about life over a glass of wine while playing rummy until way after midnight. It’s not just the workshop side of this Retreat, but the personal, private and processing time of the week that make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
