“Life is art, paint your dreams.”

If you were given a blank slate, what would you create? Let’s come together as a community and together make something new for 2022. We can’t guarantee that we may get a little messy, but we will definitely have some fun.

Let’s meet a beautiful location on the Central Coast. TBA

First, We will spend some time connecting and sharing with one other what we want to call in. Our own version of what we desire and deserve. Next, we’ll laugh, paint, dance, and get creative as a collective. Create your own masterpiece to take home and remind you that you are vibrant and full of color and wonder. Then, we’ll slow it down, sit and write and try on our hats as both director and author of our own unique story.

We provide nourishing food, creative art supplies, WMW gifts, friendship, community and connections.

We thank you for showing up, saying yes, trusting yourself (and us) and for making waves every day in all sorts of ways. For a discounted price, consider purchasing a Retreat YoSelf Package to reduce the cost to $99/event! Please visit our website: or email us at

See you there!
