Meet Your Guide

Hi! I’m Lulu – a painter, dancer, and Life Igniter. I know the struggle of feeling guilty about having time for yourself while taking care of others.

As a mom of 4, a wife, and a business owner, I felt pulled to be present for everyone else but left no time for myself. I was more concerned about hurting other people’s feelings than I was with creating boundaries for my own self-care.

I felt trapped in a life of my choosing, and that made me feel horrible. I had lost what it meant to be me, and my relationships began to suffer.

I loved my family, but something had to change. I had to be a better role model for my children. I didn’t want them to sacrifice their happiness for others, because I knew how lost that made me feel. I wanted them to value themselves and know their worth, and I had to teach it through example. 

I started paying attention to the things I was curious about learning and began slowly. I stopped telling myself that I wasn’t a creative person and started trying. 

I reconnected with past hobbies and discovered new ones. With each step I took, I learned more about who I was and what excited me. I never imagined I’d find new passions, and that those passions would lead me to host retreats!

The Fearless Spirit Retreat was created through my own journey. It’s a container to teach what helped me gain more self-confidence, live with purpose & intention, prioritize my own delight, and trust in the universe that it’s all working out.

I want the same for you! Why?

Because you deserve happiness and fulfillment! You have a voice that needs to be heard and gifts that can heal the world (which starts with yourself!) There’s no one else like you, which is why you’re here. You’re needed and I want to help you succeed!

I had the privilege of attending my second retreat with Lulu Bea, and I’m so glad I went!  This was held in a beautiful retreat in the Gulf area of Florida. The surroundings were so peaceful and beautiful, and our home for the retreat was beautiful, cozy and we were made to feel completely comfortable and at home there.
Lulu has a way of making everyone feel included and honored without overdoing anything. Our workshops were innovative and fun and allowed each of our inner growth to flourish. We had time to roam this beautiful area too.
There were some of us who felt our busy lives should not have let us come, but it was exactly what we needed. Emotions came bubbling up through much repression and were accepted by all. If you are looking for recharge and reinvigoration of yourself with love and acceptance, this is where to go. It’s also so great to get the follow-up we have received since the end of the retreat. It keeps the spirit moving. It was a beautiful retreat.

I went on another retreat with Lulu, because it was so good for me when I attended a spring one. Both times it was wonderful for me to get away… just for me.
The location/home/setting – all are so comfortable & beautiful.  As always – I so enjoy the art projects we do (this time we did some bookbinding in addition to the painting we normally do) –  they are combined with many thought-provoking, soul-searching activities. There were healing moments, times of connection, reflection, and always fun stretching/stepping out of our comfort zones as well.
Lulu is so talented, kind, wise & compassionate… a gift to me & to anyone that attends her retreats.

FAQ’s

Q: What do I need to bring?
~ We want you to feel completely taken care of, which is why we are providing all the materials you’ll need for the workshops. If you have your own favorite art materials, feel free to bring them along. We suggest dressing comfortably, and wearing clothes you won’t mind getting dirty (just in case). Also, please bring any personal toiletries.

Q: What if I have special dietary preferences or restrictions?
~ We’ll make every effort to accommodate your dietary needs. Please let us know at least 4 weeks prior to the retreat what you require. A grocery store is located nearby if you need to supplement what we offer.

Q: What if I can’t make it to the retreat and need to cancel?
~ There are no refunds for the retreat once you register unless we are able to fill your spot. If we fill your spot, there will be a $300 cancellation fee deducted from your refund.

Should we need to postpone the retreat due to weather or other extenuating circumstances, we will contact you about the new dates and give you the option to attend or receive a refund.

Q: What if I’m not creative?
~ Being creative is an innate gift that we all possess. You don’t need to know how to draw a straight line in order to tap into your creative wisdom. All of the workshops are for beginners and experienced creatives alike. We ask that you be brave, show up, and trust that you’re in good hands.

Q: Will there be a workshop-only option for people who live locally?
~ We feel that immersing yourself into the retreat environment by distancing yourself from your obligations and clearing your calendar is vitally important to the unwinding and tapping-in process. Therefore, we will not be offering a workshop-only option at this time.

Q: What are your COVID-19 precautions?
~ We encourage all participants to take precautions in the 2 weeks leading up to the retreat and during travel to the retreat to ensure their health. If a participant is sick at the time of the retreat, we expect her to contact Lulu to discuss options for rebooking.

My dearest friends and I carved out “me time” recently and attended Lulu’s Fearless Spirit Women’s retreat in Santa Rosa, Florida.  Let’s just say, “expectations blown away!”
It took me about an hour to soak in the beautiful home and surrounding neighborhood.  The location is literally “out of a movie”.  The balance of scheduled artistic/creative opportunities and relaxing downtime was perfect.  The catered, healthy food was delicious!  The love, energy, and kindness Lulu gifted for the five days was boundless.  
Packing up on Sunday was hard;  so, in the family-style kitchen, before I left, I booked my flight and retreat reservations for 2022!
You’re worth it!

I took the retreat to find a new spiritual perspective. I found the tarot cards interesting and helpful in journaling.  I’ve been painting for a year and I really enjoyed it!  
The house is phenomenal and very relaxing. I loved riding bikes. I wish I had more time to walk on the trails and go into the shops.  
Lulu is very patient and kind and great to work with! It really felt like we knew each other for longer than 4 days.  She is very easygoing.  
What surprised me was doing the hula dance. I was skeptical when it started but totally got into it and wished that we’d done it sooner as it was a turning point of release for me.  I loved it! 
The food was great and was able to experience new foods.  It was my first experience with gluten-free noodles!!  
I think the kindness of all the women in the group was wonderful. It was very peaceful and I would recommend attending any of her retreats.  I hope to go back again.
Thanks for all you did to make us comfortable and relaxed.  You are a blessing!

When sleeping women wake, mountains move. – Chinese Proverb

I love art, writing, learning new techniques, and having life’s mundane churned up to create a fresh perspective, all alongside other women who want to do the same. This is a tall order and yet Lulu’s retreat fulfilled these desires and more.

I enjoyed a weekend in a beautiful, spacious home with tasty and nourishing meals provided.  Through the meditation, intuitive writing, and art journal exercises, I unexpectedly found much sought-after freedom, love, and comfort in an area of life I had remained stuck in. This could only have happened in an atmosphere that felt safe enough to be artistically expressive. There was a perfect balance of feeling relaxed, yet motivated to explore the weekend themes of body, mind, and spirit.

Lulu knows how to create a space where women from different generations feel welcomed, valued, and understood. I enjoyed the sense of community offered in group circle time, around the meal table, or pottering through art supplies during the evening free time. I also enjoyed reflective time alone, simply sitting in the garden, wondering what the colours of tulips yet to unfold may be, and how these thoughts were symbolic of my life.

I recommend a retreat like the one Lulu provided for any woman who wishes to delve into their life more deeply using artistically expressive means while enjoying a break from the usual demands of life. I arrived back home feeling refreshed and wish the same for other women.

When information about this retreat was sent my way a little voice in me said … Yes, do it.  At this moment in my life, I’ve had questions. Who am I? Who am I meant to be? I’ve been seeking ways to help those questions be answered and come to the surface and out of my subconscious. Art with Soul -Mind, Body, and Spirit Retreat, gave me the tools and techniques and … time, to help me reconnect to my inner voice. 
I felt so taken care of during the retreat. I was able to make connections that I never thought I would when I signed up. 
Working with Lulu is so … easy! She delivers teachings in such a way that there’s plenty of room for creative expression. She’s honest about where her path as an artist, mom, and professional has taken, it put me at ease knowing there’s no “right way” to live your dream. 
I experienced a restoration in my creative self and a new drive for finding my hidden path, a path that maybe I’ve ignored as life just keeps moving along. I was able to really focus my attention during the weekend on the details of that hidden path and pay attention to what I really want and how I want to express that path. 
If you’re interested in taking the time to explore your creative self while taking care of you, a retreat with Lulu is the way to go. A retreat with Lulu is self care for the creative soul. For those individuals who need to fuel all of their senses while feeling fully pampered and taken care of, and learn the skills to spark those feelings beyond the retreat. 
I wanted to discover ways to meld creativity within several aspects of relaxation/meditation and … I did. 
Thank you Lulu

More Retreat Love

I stumbled upon this retreat in Facebook events calendar and I thought this could be amazing. I wanted to take a leap of faith and find something to challenge and teach me about art, as well as a possible new community to be a part of, as community is what we crave in today’s world. I found this with the 2019 2 + day retreat.
Working with Lulu was amazing. She has brought a calm, balanced, open energy to the retreat. Her sweet handwritten cards sent to my home even before starting the retreat blew me away as we have never met before. This showed me her intention and willingness to be open and connected to each and every one of us.
Lulu provides a safe and loving environment to be YOU without judgement. She is interested in what we create by ourselves with her instructions and without. She is encouraging and kind. My experience was awesome and I felt her heart energy as I hugged her goodbye and didn’t want to leave.
People should want to work with her because of the intention and love she brings to her work.
– Erin S.

To all women out there, it is important to take time to nurture yourself.  This retreat did just that by providing instruction in the art of journaling/writing, intuitive painting, circle talk, and a fun bachata dance lesson.

I have met an incredible group of women that share similar ideas and supported all of us as we shared openly about ourselves.  The facilitator was incredible and made us feel very included and in touch with our inner selves.

– Ann S.

Lulu Bea is a gifted teacher, mentor, and workshop leader. She provides guided meditation, open-ended journaling, and painting experiences, plus the body-oriented activity of dancing.
With her support and the interaction with women on Creative and Spiritual journeys, I gained deep insights, but there was lots of fun & laughter!
