If all of the New Year’s energy and excitement leaves you feeling less than enthusiastic…you might be in Creative Burnout.

Hey, it happens to the best of us. Burnout can be caused by too much creative output, financial stress, grief, not enough creative output, health problems, criticism, perfectionism and a host of other stressors. It happens to people in the creative arts, and in the world of creative business.

And when creative burnout hits, it steals the creative passion that is at the core of who we are as writers, artists, musicians, and other creatives. So if instead of feeling all excited about intentions, goals, and projects in 2019 you feel like you’ve just tripped and fallen flat on your back in front of an audience, we understand.

In fact, I’ve been there. Christina’s been there (actually, Christina is there now, only she’s wisely being very kind to herself and is on the path to recovery.)

Symptoms of Creative Burnout

We are all about your creative health here at Creative Wellness Retreats, and we want to spare you the pain of being in that place, or to help you recover if you’re there already. Which is why we have put together a little quiz for you, sort of a creative health checkup. Give yourself one point for every statement that is true for you, add them up, and then see where you sit (or fall, pun intended.)

No matter where you scored on the quiz, our retreat on beautiful Whidbey Island this April is designed to enhance your creative health. If you are in burnout, it offers the perfect opportunity for you to begin healing. And if your creativity is currently healthy, we’ll provide you with experiences and tools to keep it that way.

We offer experiential sessions, techniques, and information that will refill your creative well. We’ll show you how to stop fighting yourself and your natural creative process, freeing up your energy to do your creative work. You’ll get individual coaching and plenty of downtime. Plus, all sessions are individualized for your unique Myers-Briggs temperament profile (the Myers-Briggs assessment is included in the retreat package, along with all of your meals and 4 nights in an exclusive house and grounds).

Your creativity is important to the people you love – and to the world

Nurturing your creativity restores your ability to be more fully present for the people who love you. When you are creatively healthy you are more empathetic, energetic, and giving. An investment in your creative health is also an investment in your relationships.

The world needs you now more than ever. There are people out there who need to hear your voice, to read your words, to see your vision. Nobody sees it quite the way you do

If you are ready to invest in your creativity, reserve your spot to join us now. Prices will be going up after February 3rd, and we have limited space.

IN ADDITION, if you book before February 3, you’ll get:

  • an additional free coaching session with Kerry
  • 50 page developmental edit OR 60 minute marketing strategy session with Christina

A total value of up to $500.

Make 2019 the year where you invest in your creative health.

*Important note: The symptoms of burnout are similar to the symptoms of depression. If you think you may be depressed, please check in with a mental health professional or your doctor.
