Creativity & Renewal: Summer Retreat A Contemplative Yoga, Mindfulness, and Creativity Retreat with Erin Joosse
Jul 22, 2023 - Jul 24, 2023

Harmony Hill Retreat Center – Union, Washington

July 22nd-24th 2023

Contemplative retreat practice offers us the opportunity to pause the doings of daily life, and the chance to tune more fully into our bodies, minds, and hearts.

Mindful creative practice offers us a space to play, the chance to express ourselves in new ways, and the opportunity to explore creative expression as a doorway into deeper awareness.

You don’t have to be an artist or a writer to know yourself as a creative person. All you need is space and permission to explore something new.

This retreat will include mindful yoga practice, meditation, journaling, collaging, and perhaps other creative exploration. There will be no requirement to share your creations – they can be just for you.


Your Weekend: Through a balance of scheduled and unscheduled time, guided yoga and meditation practices, exploration of creative practices, and time for rest, we will give space to renew ourselves. This retreat begins Saturday at 10AM and completes Monday after lunch. This is not a fully silent retreat, though we will enjoy silent practice in the mornings through breakfast.
