SPARK! Freeing Creativity Yoga Retreat // 16 – 17 NOV. 2019

SPARK! Freeing Creativity Yoga Retreat // 16 – 17 NOV. 2019

“When allowed to flow, creative energy will continually act to reshape our lives and reveal more meaning for why things happen as they do than we could determine on our own.”
Spark! is an immersive artistic yoga experience. One where we can disconnect from the everyday modern distractions and reconnect with the unique and creative beings we always were.
 
Make space for your creative expression. Join us for a day filled with movement, color and abundance as we harness the power of creativity to break free from the habitual patterns of behavior, thoughts, and relationships we sometimes get stuck in.
 
We aim to inspire creativity through movement, artistry and self-expression. This all-day immersion will take you on a journey to the creative depths of your being through movement, color, play and freedom of self-expression.
 
By the end of the day, you will be able to:
 
– Know what to do when faced with a blank canvas.
– Practice inviting space for creativity.
– Understand the importance of practice and ritual to spark creativity.
– Get familiar with your own unique style of play and imagination.

 Accommodations

Domicile Farms is a dreamers delight, a spark of inspiration, a haven for creators. Located in the beautiful wooded forest in Woodinville, just a short drive from Seattle, this rustic dome house will take you into another world, away from the hustle and bustle of the day to day. This once private artists residency has opened its doors to allow all who wander in its gifts. Explore the property and see what curiosities you’ll find; maybe you’ll find inspiration under the stars on its many-acre property, maybe you’ll be called to dance under the twinkling lights of the dome, or maybe the life-sized shadow puppet-theater will engage you in a show. Domicile Farms will give you comfort and inspiration (full-size kitchen, art space, instruments, projector, hot tub, and comfortable bed space provided).

Who We Are

Diana Ratsamee

Meditation guide and yoga teacher


Diana Ratsamee is an international yoga teacher, meditation guide, traveler, creative and curator with over 10 years of teaching experience. She aims to bring authentic connection to ourselves, each other, nature, and our work back to humanity through intentional movement and mindfulness meditation.

Julie Kim

Artist and Yoga Teacher

Julie Kim is an artist and pigment worker from Seattle. Using natural and synthetic palettes, she weaves layers of unplanned washes into multi-dimensional spaces, merging the internal and external landscape. Her search for unique pigments has led her to explore mountains, deserts and jungles around the world, inspiring a deep observation of her inner world. Each discovery contributes to her handmade mineral paint palette and a vocabulary of shapes that characterize her paintings: the wild growth of jungle foliage, fluidity of the wind, crystalline clarity and turbulent skies. Her paintings bring to light an unseen story, fusing realms of pigment and landscape together onto paper.
