Capture the Wow with Cynthia Morris
May 20th – 26th, 2018
Is your inner artist ready to run away to Italy for a fun creativity retreat? Mine is!
It’s time to enjoy life the Italian way, with our senses engaged! If you’re suffering from the following modern maladies:
Overwhelm by the onslaught of news
Decision fatigue – the inability to easily decide what to create, when
Rushing from one thing to the next
Feeling uninspired and out of touch with your creative talent?
Let’s step aside for a moment. Deep breath….
It’s time to make space for yourself and your creativity to breathe. Your inner artist is ready to play and she loves the great outdoors.
Join in gorgeous Orvieto, Italy, to meet your muse.
Capture the Wow is the invitation you’ve been waiting for to help you cut through the noise and listen to your wisdom. Let’s access your creative talents. We’ll learn how to keep our creative well filled, fresh and accessible at a moment’s notice.
Capture the Wow is a fun process that allows anybody, anywhere, to slow down, tune in, and capture the wonder of the world easily. No art experience required.
Join us in fabulous Orvieto, Umbria for an unforgettable and delightful retreat your inner artist will love.
Join us in the stunning Umbrian hillside town of Orvieto for a WOW unlike any other. During our Capture the Wow retreat we will spend time together learning how to savor the wonders around us and capture it in fun and easy ways.
How we’ll WoW it up in Italy
Look forward to a calm, nurturing setting where we can relax, reconnect with out authentic selves, enjoy upscale accommodations, great food and fun, all at great rates.
Each day, we’ll meet for breakfast to get the day started in the right way – with joy, ease and time for our muses to wake up.
After breakfast, we will gather for our ‘artist salon’ sessions. I’ll guide you to learn simple exercises to have more fun and be more creative, using an adorable Moleskine accordion notebook.
We will have expeditions to lure out our muse like wine and olive oil tastings. You’ll have time to wander the gorgeous and walkable hill town of Orvieto, capturing all the insights and inspiration in your sketchbook.
No art experience is required for this fun and relaxing retreat workshop. Some of the things we’ll explore:
- drawing as mediation – slowing down enough to see, feel and capture the essence of things
- release of concerns over ‘good’ or ‘art – this is time for pure play
- simple exercises to make writing and recording your experiences easy and meaningful
- ways to have fun at home or away
- a new way to savor the world and your creativity.
If your inner artist has perked up about this workshop, reserve your spot here.
Workshop fee includes a wow kit, featuring:
- Moleksine Japanese Album – 3 x 5 accordion notebook perfect for retreats like this
- Handful of my favorite creativity tools
- Journal Blessings to make the process fun and sacred
- More treats to delight and inspire your muse.
Spaces are limited in these special workshops, so don’t hesitate if this is the retreat for you!
Wowsters love it
Cynthia has facilitated this training in Boulder, Costa Rica, Europe and mostly in Paris. Here’s what participants experience:
“I am absolutely still on a high! This workshop has affected me profoundly. I am tuned into all the sense of life more than before, because of our focus on the senses and really taking in our surroundings.” – Christine
“I really appreciate that i was able to take advantage of all that was offered and still have room to make art in my own way and at my own speed. The space in the program for doing your own wandering was perfect, and was well anchored by the daily meetups.”
It was great to meet other artists, and hear about their process. I love your process of de-mystifying art while showing the participants that there are so many different ways to make art. You are a lovely person to feel artistically safe around.”
“Working with Cynthia Morris has been an utter delight. Her warm open style encourages everyone to return to the curiosity we had when small.
With Cynthia’s encouragement and gentle guiding I’ve returned to a daily drawing practice at at time of much stress. Quickly the joy of color, composition and expressing myself clearly in images has returned. We live in a digital age – but there is something healing and transformative about creating images slowly and getting your fingers dirty as you do so.
Thank you Cynthia – I feel you’ve returned a wholeness to my creative process, something that was missing a long time. – Liz Scully
“Capture the Wow is magical and the best gift I’ve given myself! It helped me to connect with my inner Artist and Muse and to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each moment. Now, I look forward to letting the adventure of Capture the Paris Wow color my life!”
“After Capture the Wow, I feel so competent and confident, having had such an adventure, having sought it, and done it. I so enjoyed you, Cynthia, glimpsing into your life, experiencing you as a full time creative person, living life as such.
Living connected to the muse within, living with my creative eye wide open, alert…may be the biggest impact on me.”
Oh yes! It’s possible to slow down, tune in and replenish in ways that will continue to move your life toward the good. Join other wowsters who feel calmer, more grounded and enjoy slowing down to savor the world through their senses.
