Welcome to the Heart of Creativity Retreat
San Miguel de Allende

Writing and Collage Retreat with Julia Alter 

and Migdalia DeNike of MexChic Retreats

September 5-12, 2019

Imagine for a moment...

As you saunter the cobblestone streets, blooms of wild hibiscus open in celebration of your arrival in lush San Miguel de Allende. You drink in the rose quartz -colored walls of this colonial Mexico town, setting your inner Frida Kahlo free.

You can feel the great lineage of artists and writers here, as the cream-curved architecture beckons you forth to the local mercado, where baskets of lime and mango make your mouth water. The Muse seems to find you around every corner, coaxing your eyes from courtyard to treasure-filled courtyard.

The sacred heart of the city seems to sing your name in Spanish syllables. You tilt your head back to the turquoise sky and absorb the beauty of the Church of the Archangel Michael, which rises like a palace of sun-lit rosequartz. A quaint park in the plaza offers pools of shade beneath welcoming trees.

You deserve this...

You feel deeply connected here in this beautiful plaza with its canopy of emerald trees. You can almost hear the muse of the angels whispering inspiration, making your heart race at the thought of gathering with the other creative spirits here too.

With your breath already taken away at the cinnamon-arched beauty of this place, you can’t wait to reach for your journal and your pen! If a city were a poem, it is San Miguel de Allende and it’s already writing itself across your soul.

"Is This Retreat For Me?" Do you say Yes to the following?..

I need a break from my crazy busy life. Just for me! Yes!

I'm craving more creativity! More FUN! And the TIME to express myself. YES!

I am inspired by beauty and feel recharged by beautiful surroundings. Yes!
