New Year’s Retreat

Awaken Your Creative Heart

Dec 28, 2019 - Jan 1, 2020
Pendle Hill Retreat Center


This New Year’s retreat invites you to focus on your Heart and what you want to create in the upcoming year.


New Year’s Retreat Program


Bring in the New Year by awakening your creative heart, your intuition, and your inner vision. During this retreat, we will use spiritual and creative tools that speak the sacred language of your creative heart. Guided visualization, shamanic journeying, and intuitive painting are powerful ways to explore your hopes and dreams and to untangle obstacles or limitations that might prevent you from realizing your innermost desires. Over five days we will hold space for deep introspection, community-inspired exercises, journaling, and experiencing how to work with intention.

When you awaken your creative heart, you get unstuck, invite flow, manifest your dreams, strengthen your intuition, transform, and SHINE! Join us and connect with the best and brightest part of you — your creative heart.

This retreat is open to everyone who wants to awaken their heart and make time for creative expression (instead of learning a new painting technique).

Enjoy an alcohol-free New Year’s Eve celebration, with hors d’oeuvres reception and home-cooked dinner, lively concert in the Barn, ice cream social, and midnight candlelight Meeting for Worship.

What People Are Saying About this Retreat:

Damini offers a big canvas on many levels for exploration and discovery at the Painting the Landscape of the Soul retreat. Along with this offering, Damini stays present in a consistent way with all participants and supports each one with her intuitive skills as an energy reader of the painting and the process. This takes the form of her availability as a “consultant”, sweet nudging, and asking simple (!) questions to enhance clarity.

This can be a deep dive.

The treasures found are the jewels for a creative healing journey. I have found the ripple effect of this workshop still active and shimmering after 6 months.
