You know there is something missing… That something is the WHOLE YOU

You’re invited to an all-inclusive retreat where YOU are the focus.

It’s time to step away from your busy schedule to commit to your own personal & spiritual growth.

Whatever you believe, whatever you hold sacred, this retreat puts YOU at the center of it all.

To live a life of purpose, connection and clarity you need to integrate ALL parts of who you are. This means…

In this 3-day retreat, we will explore creative & mindful ways to nourish, develop, and integrate your mind, body, & spirit into your life. Activities will include:

Movementto connect with the rhythms of your body
Musicto invite mindfulness into your daily life
Guided Meditations/Visualizationsto connect with your spirit
Art Projects – to engage your mind and learn more about creativity
Writing – to travel deeper into your callings from within
Goal Setting & Scheduling – to learn the strategies you need to integrate your new Mind, Body, & Spirit practice back home

This isn’t just a weekend away… it’s the beginning of a whole new way of living

When sleeping women wake, mountains move. – Chinese Proverb

The guided workshops will be broken down into the 3 main categories that create your wholeness – Your Mind, Your Body, and Your Spirit.

We believe that when your Whole Self is fully integrated and prioritized, you will live a more authentic and exciting life.

  • You will KNOW what you want in life because you’ve done the work to figure it out
  • You will TRUST yourself and your ability to make it through the stressful times
  • You will live with AUTHENTICITY because you are connected to who you are as a woman
  • You will have the COURAGE to try new things because you are not willing to take the easy road any longer
  • You will PRIORITIZE time for yourself, because you know you are just as important as everyone else

Using creativity, journaling, and mindfulness activities throughout the weekend, we will explore fun & powerful ways to connect with your intuition and release your fears, so you can live your life with more purpose, clarity and confidence.

Your dreams and desires are possible when you have the courage to embody all of who you came to be, and we can’t wait to walk this journey with you.

Examples of Art Work With Soul Work

Combining the process of making art with journaling is a powerful experience. The best part is that you don’t need have an artistic bone in your body to do it! You will learn about creativity and about yourself at the same time. It really is a combination like no other, and we can’t wait to show you why we love it!

What past students say about working with Lulu

Your Intuitive Painting Retreat was a creative journey for me.  I learned new techniques, used new materials and tools, met brave and fascinating women.  You provided a safe, warm and intimate environment to explore my inner mythos on canvas.  Everything from having tea and coffee available, a lovely lunch, grounding rituals, and an array of mediums and tools to work with made it an unforgettable experience.  Two days went by so fast.

I found so many things come up during the the workshop. Including art in the process before journaling is magical. It allows one to be with whatever is coming up, but because you keep moving on with your art project, you are able to move through and process what is coming up without staying stuck! Thanks Lulu Bea for introducing us to this magical process!!!

Thank you Lulu and everyone for this amazing group, and for helping us to explore our creativity and learn to let-go. With the help of letting go while painting, we can bring those principles to our daily life and become more calm, relaxed and happy. Coming to your workshop was a safe place for myself. I let myself loose and was able to share things form past, and I was able to use my creativity to just feel happy, balanced and secure. Anytime I have been with you and have talked to you, I have felt empowered… you have this energy and aura about you… I feel energized, free, and super passionate around you. You are amazing, and you are very caring, down to earth and ever so inspiring.

Lulu Bea I’m so grateful for all that you do and all that I’ve learned from you. You’ve made this art journaling thing doable. I’ve learned so many techniques while working on this Soul Journey workshop. You are an angelic spirit.
