Here’s what past attendees had to say about the Retreat:
Such an enriching weekend!
I am beyond excited that Michelle will lead me on this journey. And thank you Angela for encouraging me to live life without negative inhibitors. Also thank you to my fellow creative folk who helped me so much during the 3-day virtual retreat. I know now for sure that I am on my way to the next level.
Michelle and Angela, thank you so much for leading us through a very beautiful weekend and holding space for our practice! And thanks to everyone who attended this weekend! It was such a pleasure and blessing to meet and work with each of you. My biggest takeaway is planning projects and initiatives by quarters and seasons and being intentional with time management. I tend to set lofty goals and never seem to reach them. I now have the tools to better plan my time.
No words really to express how much I appreciated #ResetYourCreativePractice with Michelle Ann May and Dr. Angela Celeste May! The 3-day retreat was more of an “advance” than a retreat! Each session along with the opportunity to share with each other was powerful and priceless at the same time. I’m excited to say the least to listen, learn and be empowered to move forward in my creative practice with a written action plan. Outstanding!
I learned so much this weekend. I appreciate that the work was framed as “creative practice” rather than a focus on one type of practice. I felt motivated to move in the direction of my passion and to show all the way up. One thing I wholeheartedly embraced was the fact that I can do all of the things I feel driven to do. I don’t have to choose but I do have to make a plan. At the close of this workshop, I have prioritized my drives. I have SMART goals to hold me accountable and I know what one or two things I will do to support continuing work in other areas while not negatively impacting the primary goal. Hey, it’s on paper now. It can’t do anything but manifest!
