 Inspired by my newest course, Rise Above, and FLIGHT, we will create lifelong memories and friendships while exploring our creative edges in nature’s beauty around Tolmin. We will circle up alongside the Soča River, within the Tolmin Gorge and in the mountain foothills to enjoy painting & guided meditation.

Feel free to stay after the retreat to explore the area further and / or to join me as I cheer on my daughter who will be there competing in the Paragliding Junior World Cup Competition! I will be in the Tolmin area until August 31st!

Breakfast is included (if you stay in the house with me), one dinner at the house is included, paints, brushes… bring your own art journal, unstretched or stretched canvas that will travel well with you. All my retreats are “Art Gypsy” style… we follow our heARTs, our intuition and I guide you through a journey experience in your inner landscape as much as we will journey into the landscape of Slovenia around us!

A Festival of Feminine Power + Artistry – The RETREAT!!!

September 30th – October 4th, 2024, Joseph, OR

Join Whitney Freya in her magical mountain home!

After our first retreat in 2022, this has become an annual event by popular demand! Circle up with your “tribe” to create, explore & celebrate our Power + Artistry at the spectacular Wallowa Lake Camp in Joseph, OR.

I am SO excited to invite you to join me in my magical mountain home in NE Oregon. Join me on this sacred land. The Nez Perce Tribe lived here free until 1877, the last tribe in the continental United States to enjoy their freedom. This means this ancient wisdom was last practiced here and with 2 million acres and only a population of 7000 people, this land has been preserved on all levels.

If you have taken my DailyOM “Painting with Heart” online course, you have seen much of my magical home… We will be walking distance from Wallowa Lake! 

During the retreat, we will paint together, in a variety of workshops, to even more deeply connect to our most authentic creative expression. Painting workshops will be held in break out sessions by different Creatively Fit Coaches. 

 

 

 

Also, you will receive guided audio meditations from me leading up to the retreat to open & prepare and following the retreat to integrate & inspire. I can feel that this retreat will be a powerful activation for all of us– the divine feminine circling up in the creative frequency and creating synergy that we will take home with us in a myriad of ways.

This waterfall is a short hike from Wallowa Lake Camp!

I have attended The Festival of Feminine Power and Artistry Retreat two years in a row with Whitney in Joseph Oregon. I can tell you that the retreat is life-changing and even months after the retreat is over magical things happen. You learn, laugh, and make incredible friends from all over the world while creating amazing intuitive paintings. This retreat will take you to a different place both spiritually and artistically. I highly recommend and I hope you will join us in October!

Y’all! There’s so much more than all of the creative connection that happens with a canvas at the RETREAT . A Festival of Feminine Power + Artistry! It’s as much about the connection with yourSelf and with others, the building of a community, and the connection with your own Power as it is about using paint to make magic!! Magic occurs in every step you take, among the beautiful mountains, gorgeous lake, charming city, and the most adorable camp and camp staff! I will make this journey yearly! Prioritize yourself. Come along!

Katie White

Hello fellow creatives! I would like to recommend Whitney’s RETREAT . A Festival of Feminine Power + Artistry. It’s a magical land, filled with magical people and a beautiful place to grow in sisterhood with like minded souls. It’s a journey to get there, but so worth it. I met amazing women, created meaningful art and enjoyed the energy of Chief Joseph Mountain. Hugs and love to all!

You can take a video tour of Wallowa Lake Camp HERE. It is a beautiful and recently updated Methodist Camp. A Festival of Feminine Power + Artistry. The RETREAT has no affiliate with the Methodist Church, nor any other religion or organization. 

 

The location sits at the base of Chief Joseph Mountain (I mean, truly RIGHT at the base) with the Wallowa River and mountain fed creeks running through it. Towering ponderosa pines embrace the space with the magical, deep blue of Wallowa Lake a short walk away. It is a completely immersive and peaceful space. Even the wildlife makes it home. There is a sweet family of foxes there too! The big fireplace in the main lodge will be radiating its cozy heat each night, the fire circle will be the site of a powerful Fire Ceremony, and the land will speak to you exactly as is perfectly intended. Gah! I can’t wait!

Nothing replaces the experience of being together LIVE, creating, sharing, expanding, and celebrating! YOU have signed up for a life of continuous expansion (I call it the Spiral Path). What this means is that your NEXT level of expression and awareness is always just around the bend. All of my events are meant to strap rocket boosters to your highest personal expression. You will leave transformed BECAUSE you broke with routine, traveled to a new place, and immersed yourself in FLOW.

You opened up a world to me that I never knew existed for myself. A world of using creativity as a way to calm the stress of my mind. I had been searching for years to calm my inner self …did yoga, meditation (tried to do them consistently but struggled!) but it wasn’t until I found you and your left and right brain message that I finally found what my deep inner self was looking for. You taught me that creativity was a huge missing link in my life and you changed my life by showing that I am creative (something I never thought I was!).

My experience with Whitney has been soul blowing— not mind blowing! She has opened me up to freedom, creativity, and boundless opportunity with my art. She is a bright light in this world and being with her in person is even better. I loved working with Whitney and the other CCFCs at the Unstoppable Dream workshop and WILL do another in person workshop with her again. She cracked me open to endless possibilities. I will be forever grateful.

Whitney, you demystify art-making and make it accessible to everyone. This is your special gift to the world. You do it so gracefully and graciously, anyone can feel worthy of receiving your gifts. You keep it fun and there are no performance expectations. This is why I love to play with you.

It was an amazing experience to visit and connect with the other artists and paint in such a high vibration with Whitney, heart centered, leading the way. She has helped me lead and create an inspired life through art. I have been able to coach others with confidence through many of the CCFC trainings and the Rise Above Book club.

I am so excited to see you and grow with you at an event or training. Even though my deepest wish for you is inner peace, I go about it in a pretty diverse way and am usually up to something! I must admit that my inner muse does not like to sit around too much. I am infinitely inspired to throw on my paint layered overalls, push my sleeves up, and get heart deep into the canvas that is your life. Who would I be without you after all?

Make no mistake, although I can talk about my mission until the paint cracks, you are the reason I teach. Your children are the reason I teach. Helping oppressed women in Africa find their creative freedom is the reason I teach. Allowing men and women in cubicle nation to join as one creative voice and for people’s ideas to count is the reason I teach. For Source and spirit is the reason I teach, my most powerful muse, and to feel it’s presence in my life, I am devoted.

My experience of Super Soul Flow in Australia with Whitney was nothing short of life-changing!
The combination of art, meditation, yoga, and time in nature at a beautiful eco-retreat left me rested, inspired, and ready to walk my sacred path! I now coach others to find their answers within using all these tools. Whitney is a creative, beautiful muse who helps us all remember to Rise Above!

I had met Whitney online and grew to love her, so I was excited to finally meet her in person! Online, Whitney is amazing; but I was blown away by her loving, high vibe energy during the live event retreat I attended. From the first introduction and hug, Whitney is real. She is what I want to be when I grow up – a creative muse, coach, and mentor who really, truly cares about the success of her attendees! Whitney went the extra mile for the workshop I attended, and the weekend experience changed the trajectory of not only my business, but my personal life journey. During the second morning meditation, I was transported to another place, where I clearly saw my authentic self and my purpose during this life. In short, Whitney is the real deal. Do whatever you can to get to her live event! You’ll be forever changed. I know I was!
