Creative Retreat

Join us for a creative retreat in the stunning landscape of Transylvania, Romania. Enjoy 5 days/4 nights at Albastru si Origini, an traditional modern country farmhouse-village with mesmerizing views. Carefully built and cared by a small family. Experience the peaceful atmosphere between nature, good food, creativity and inspiration. 

Get hands on experience learning to enhance your life quality through creativity and mindful photography. 

In this immersion you will explore…


  • Soul growth through the creative process

  • Tools and resources to use mindfulness as a source for inspiration

  • Practices to cross the threshold from the critical mind to the creator mind 

  • Create your unique creative flow 


The creative process is not linear. It is winding and often full of more questions than answers. Who are you when you have no inspiration? When you are criticizing yourself? When you are comparing yourself? When your wonder ceases? As you are constantly changing and evolving, you need to trust your inner voice, release the old, so you can lean into your soul's calling and embrace your unique voice.
