About this Event

PLAYtime Retreat for Entrepreneurs

This is a deeply therapeutic, multi-day retreat for entrepreneurs. It has been designed to reframe mindsets and bring balance, clarity and inspiration. In this unique gathering, you will delightfully explore how purposeful PLAY and creativity are directly connected with success, productivity, and life changing breakthroughs.

Playtime Retreat for Entrepreneurs centers around using PLAY and creativity as tools for personal development. The retreat is intended to help attendees get out of their own way and move beyond their blocks, limiting beliefs, and fears that are consciously and unconsciously holding them back from reaching their true brilliance and utmost potential.

The interactive weekend will be filled with experiential exercises, FUN, liberating activities, games, reflection, and deep, open-hearted connection.


PLAY is vital for our well-being! Over the course of the weekend you will go deep on many levels: mind, body, spirit, and heart -- and PLAY through movement, art, writing, music, improvisation, theatre, yoga, dance, food, laughter, games, and meditation to help you tap into your flow state, and shatter self-sabotage and outdated self-concepts.

Playtime Retreat for Entrepreneurs is led by master facilitators who provide a safe container in a natural environment for attendees to connect and PLAY with these artforms in new and powerful ways that offer lasting and tangible results and skill sets.

These PLAYshops are crafted for all skill levels, so zero previous experience is necessary. Further, one does NOT need to be an artist or performer to receive tremendous value (and pleasure) out of this weekend retreat.
