Art Alchemy Day Retreat


Date: Fri. March 10
Time: 2pm – 10pm
Where: Opal Cliff Oasis – Capitola, CA

Dear Goddess: imagine a private ocean sanctuary, steps from the majestic Pacific, to take Art Alchemy to the next level…to paint your heart out, to gather as sisters with glorious cuisine and wine…to dive into her healing waters, to celebrate and remember what is true for you, to relax and do yoga surrounded by salt water luxury…you ready?

Spend the day at a private villa in Capitola with visual artist Erin Elizabeth, chef Lauren O’Leary, and yogini Katie Macrae. Immerse yourself in Pacific’s healing oasis. Water is life. This day retreat will focus on diving into healing waters to help revive the thriving life force that resides in all of us. Connect with this powerful source, and learn to create with it. Get away from the everyday, surround yourself with ocean beauty, focus in and let it out with paint. You may be surprised what you discover.

ART: Erin Elizabeth will lead a hands-on Art Alchemy experience painting with unique materials and elements, including the ocean. Learn more about Erin here.

FOOD AND WINE: Gather around the goddess table for a glamorous dinner created by Lauren O’Leary. She will take you around the world with beautiful food and wine your taste buds will dance to. Learn more about Lauren here.

WATER & GODDESS CEREMONY: When the stars are out and ready, Erin will lead you through a secret Water & Goddess Ceremony by the fire and ocean, that with our magic together, the true alchemy will take place.

YOGA: During free time in the afternoon, you’re welcome to take a Vinasya flow yoga class lead by Katie Macrae. Her compassion will sooth your heart and body.
