Creative Wellness Retreats in Southern Vermont
Creative Wellness through artistic expression and essential oils
Immerse yourself in an inspiring weekend, creating sisterhood, manifesting abundance, appreciating nature & celebrating creativity!
The best way to attract creativity, prosperity and abundance into your life is to begin with experiencing these gifts. Join 2 inspiring women at a hilltop retreat in a private Vermont community for a weekend of wellness through art, essential oils and bountiful natural beauty. Just 2 1/2 hours from Boston and 4 hours from NYC, this creative experience will be limited to 10 adults in order to provide connectivity and focused intention.
When we start creating, we feel more creative, when we envision abundance we can manifest it, when we invite & learn how to incorporate oils into your routine, we are inviting a healthier lifestyle, when we enter an inspiring atmosphere we feel more inspired!
Your retreat includes:
Sprinkling essential oils with simple guided meditation, 2 Essential Oil workshops, a vision board workshop, an optional guided lakeside hike, 2 creative art workshops, unlimited use of our indoor spa, indoor sauna, & private outdoor meditation room, a private aromatherapy treatment, 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts. Time will be provided on Saturday to explore our charming village.

Painting and Drawing for Expression and Relaxation
Join Elizabeth Karsch on a journey of expressive markmaking as she guides you through the practice of using line and color to release emotions, answer questions and tap into the energy around you. All materials will be provided.
Elizabeth Karsch is a visual artist and mother of two busy girls. Her abstract paintings and mixed-media work present narratives on the flow of energy around people and things. Elizabeth’s artmaking process is contemplative and therapeutic; each ink mark or stroke of paint represents a feeling or a reflection of her experiences, conversations, and dreams. She also paints to communicate to her parents, who have both passed away, and feels most connected to them and to the world around her when the brush takes over.
Elizabeth brings this artmaking process to her classes and art retreats: her painting and drawing process encourages emotional release, thoughtful contemplation and a deeper understanding of oneself through the use of color and line.
Karsch studied Studio Art and Art History at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY and at SACI in Florence, Italy. For 8 years, she managed pottery painting studios on Long Island’s east end, teaching painting and drawing to adults and children, operating art camps and curating exhibits for local and emerging artists.
Creative retreats are a new and exciting endeavor for Elizabeth, and she looks forward to sharing her process and encouraging creativity with new friends and guests!
