La Segreta VIlla, Umbria, Italy


The retreat will be Sunday, October 20th through Saturday, October 26th 2019.


All materials will be provided (Acrylic paints, brushes, related supplies, journals).


Retreat time at a gorgeous farmhouse in Umbria (http://lasegreta.com/) The entire group will be staying at the gorgeous La Segreta Villa (lasegreta.com), set on a 70-acre nature preserve in the heart of Umbria.

The meticulously renovated villas are a carefully considered blend of traditional Umbrian architecture and modern convenience, unparalleled luxury at its very best. artful, traditional, beautiful, and totally unique! Due to the layout of the farmhouse, participants will be in spacious double-occupancy rooms, each with its own outdoor sitting area, sharing a queen-sized bed (a great inspiration to bring a friend!). If you come with a friend we will make every effort to accommodate you in the same room.


The Creativity and Freedom Retreat will be an intimate gathering of 10 participants, plus your facilitators, Bronwen Mayer Henry, Martha Pitcairn, with guest presenter Erica Cantley. This will be a space to build and deepend new friendships. There will be space to be alone and space to be together and plenty of one-on-one support. Upon registration, each participant will be invited to a private Facebook group to build connections with other attendees.


No experience at Ignition Academy or Open Heart Studio is required. The only thing required is an open heart, a readiness to explore, and perhaps some courage.
