Mermaid & the Muse Retreat
$899.00 – $2,545.00
January 30 – February 4th 2018.
There a special part of the soul that awakens when we are at the beach… Our inner mermaid comes alive, unleashing our creative brilliance in a completely new and embodied way. This January, join Alena Hennessy and Kitty Cavalier at this sensual, mystical, creative retreat: The Mermaid & The Muse: Painting, Embodiment & Sisterhood by the Sea.
Through daily class sessions with Kitty, you will feel permission to enjoy pleasure in your body through movement, mindfulness, and your relationship with the earth. For many of us, connecting with the body and the senses has been tampered with due to cultural conditioning, family conditioning or simply a very busy schedule! These class sessions invite you to slow down and truly savor the present moment by letting your senses take the lead. You will access the creative intelligence of the body; the wisdom that lives in our hearts, bellies and bones, and be empowered to design and create your life in alignment with your deepest truths.
Alena’s daily sessions will include solo and collaborative creative prompts, earth-alters, intuitive painting and mixed media, intentional and magic-making through art, + more. All levels welcome (beginners more than welcome) for this experience. Through art we can discover our voice beyond words, create new worlds, and connect on a level with ourselves and others in a way never imagined. Come feel and free yourself through color, line, and shape. Create from a place that fulfills you and your relationship to spirit. Come play!Together we will create mandalas, altars, rituals, share stories along with communing with the sea and the wild.
The location of this retreat is Destin, Florida, (called the Emerald Coast for a reason!) We will be staying in a gorgeous and luxurious home that is steps away from the beach with beautiful amenities such as a large pool and infinity hot tub, decks that look out over the endless horizon, in-room jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces and more.
