March 1-4, 2018

A 4 day retreat where we're going to

UNLEASH your creativity,

NURTURE your body and

VISION what's next.

If you've been stretched and feel the need to nurture and nourish yourself,

You've been blocked or stuck and want to spend 4 days dedicated to creativity,

You want to vision and dream how to get your creative work into the world,

this reTREAT is for you

Imagine taking 4 days to nurture and nourish no one but you

Unleashing your feminine creative power, letting loose and having some fun?

Spending time visioning your bigger mission and creating a plan to share your creative work in your community, into the world?

Imagine what's possible...

Painting + Art Journaling + Movement +

Dreaming + Planning your 2018 +


Before I worked with Amber I was frightened about even touching a brush! not even mentioning PAINTING! - just the thought of it, would make me tear… I thought I was just BAD at doing any art… Since our time together, I have broken those walls and now I'm painting and LOVING it! She is an amazing teacher and mentor. I'm forever grateful for her guidance and trust. It allowed me to trust myself. I learned so much! and I keep learning because now... I'm not afraid!"

Maria Arroyo, Maria Arroyo Photography

"Amber encourages enormous freedom of creativity, teaching us to trust our inner promptings. Her combination of dance movement and painting… is a unique approach that really stimulates the brain/body connection."

Renée Tillotson, Owner, Still & Moving Center


during the retreat you'll...

ACTIVATE your CREATIVITY to see more possibilities

RELAX and CONNECT to the wisdom of your body

Learn how to LISTEN and take action on your INTUITION

VISION your 2018

CREATE A PLAN to share your unique gifts with the world

Learn the secret to GAIN MOMENTUM on your creative work

DOUBLE your FOCUS to complete what you start

At last FIND TIME for yourself both during and after the retreat

here's what to expect

Once you reserve your spot, you'll get an email with instructions  and information on planning your trip. Details on flight and accommodation options. We'll contact you to see if you have any questions or need help planning your trip.

Before the retreat, we'll have a group call to set our intention and run over any last minute details.

During the retreat, I've carefully planned the event to make sure you get time to play and create, vision, as well as relax. It's no fun coming back from a vacation feeling tired. Our retreat includes the following:


painting

Every day, we'll meet up for a painting session. Imagine painting with the view of the ocean...

We'll journey step-by-step through an Intentional Creativity® process to align you with your intuition and tap you into your unique creativity. Everything we are learning during our 4 days will go into our canvas.

Beginning painters have a step-by-step process. I've taught thousands of beginners. Seasoned artists will learn different technique as well as how to loosen up their style in order to enjoy the creativity process more than the technique. We'll have plenty of art guides so you can relax, let go into the process and send your inner critic to the beach.


visioning + teachings

In the afternoons we'll gather for teachings on the Creative Cycle and how to bring it into your life AFTER the retreat. You'll vision what you want to create in 2018 and each day we'll take a look at 1 of the 4 steps you need to move through in order to make it happen.

Have problem getting CLEAR or PRIORITIZING?

Staying FOCUSED when life gets busy?

Knowing what to do when your CREATIVITY gets blocked?

FINISHING what you start?

No problem. We'll look at these areas as well as create a step-by-step plan for 2018 to keep you moving on your creativity. Whether that is writing a book, having a consistent painting practice, teaching workshops or starting a creative business, we've got you covered.

We're visioning and planning the creative way.


art journaling

Your Art Journal is your sacred container, a record of your transformation. You'll be taking notes the creative way, with image and color to remember your experience and integrate it more easily into your life.

Think of it as a record of your transformation, a place to put your vision and dreams. A place to put dreams that may be too tender to share.

You'll learn creative note taking, collage and watercolor painting. Poetry and journaling all go here too.


hawaiian wisdoms + hula

It is no accident we choose the Big Island of Hawai'i for our event. Big Island is the home of Pele, the living volcano. This land has medicine. It is about grounding, understanding your foundation, and total transformation. You'll learn how to listen to the 'aina (land) and hear the messages meant for you. You'll also learn how to listen with your body through the traditional dance of Hawai'i, the hula.


movement

Our movement guides will help you listen to your sensations. You'll experience a variety of ways to access your body wisdom, increase your energy, and keep moving when you start to feel stuck. Best of all, you'll go home knowing how to use your body wisdom to relax, recharge and energize after the retreat.


retreat time

Throughout the retreat we have woven in breaks in order for you to take time for stillness and silence. Time to listen to your own rhythms. Lounge by the pool, watch the sunset, walk along the ocean, or connect with other retreat sisters. Our retreat location is meant to make you feel nurtured and nourished.


After the retreat, you'll get a couple layers of support to help you integrate what you've learned into your life, to help you keep moving on your path when you go back to regular life.

I know if you can take what you learn during the retreat and add it into your life during the first 30 days after the retreat, you'll have a much better chance at keeping it integrated in your life. I figure 30 days is good, but 60 days is awesome so we've added the following:

1  group call to keep you focused and moving after the retreat. We'll have a mini teaching, some LIVE Q&A, and connection time. Calls will be recorded.

Private Facebook group for the Creativity Unleashed community. Here you'll be able to get to know each other before the retreat as well as stay connected after. Share pictures, find rides and stay connected.

30 minute 1:1 integration call After the retreat, we want to make sure you are clear on your plan. After you leave you may have areas where you're feeling stuck. This call with my coaching team is to help you get the most out of the retreat and bringing it home.


Imagine if all you got from the retreat was...

Coming home REFRESHED and RENEWED. Your tank full. Ready to take care of your family, friends and work in a way that didn't feel like a have-to but a want-to.

A clear system to stay less overwhelmed, MORE PRODUCTIVE

Knowing how to listen to your intuition to stop wasting time in unclarity and make the RIGHT DECISIONS

A PLAN to keep moving on your creative work and bring it out into the world

what retreat participants are saying

My only hesitation about coming to the retreat was the logistics of it all. Coming to Hawaii and being in group with everyone made it worth any hassle. I wanted to reconnect with my creative self and I knew this would do it.

Since the retreat I finally scheduled another workshop that I will lead. I've been wanting to move forward for a long time and Amber gave me the support and nudge that I needed. She made time for each of us to connect with her if that's what we needed. She made me feel at ease and very welcome. Her talent for guiding experienced and inexperienced artists is much appreciated!

Any woman who is willing to take a deeper look at her fears and hopes would benefit from Creativity Unleashed.

Lynn

I would recommend the Creativity Unleashed Live Retreat to artists who need to expand a narrow way of thinking. To women who don't think they are artists but haven't tried. To women who just need validation and urging to accomplish more in their lives. The retreat was of great benefit in helping me see value in myself as a non-career person. I was a success in my career over and over. It's sometimes hard to figure out where that fits now in retirement.


I think this retreat suggested to me that I can still work on having a viable income source through the work that I do. Seeing others, talking with others, have helped me see this. I don't want to work full time, I'm not building a business, but I think I should take the creative work I do and manage it into a business that will give me enough income to take the creative classes I want, travel a bit, and buy art supplies. I can do this if I run a small, very small, viable business. I saw this in the many creative business women at the retreat.

Aloha! I'm Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici (yeah, I know it's a mouthful).

Here I am at our last retreat.

Not too long ago I was in high tech marketing and retail management. I had climbed the corporate ladder and outwardly had my shizzle together. At the same time I felt isolated and lonely. I missed my creative adventure self, the one who felt a deep connection to spirit. I missed the pieces of me that didn't fit neatly in my in-the-box life.

After almost losing myself in motherhood, I made a radical decision to stop doing what was expected and instead listen to the calling of my heart. I (re)discovered creativity, let the dishes pile up and started calling women in circles and retreats.

Years later after leading online and in person retreats for 50,000+ women, I know the power of a retreat to completely shift a woman's path, to awaken the creative spirit to dream again.

I've seen women claim pieces of themselves they had forgotten, buried in the past. I've seen women remember who they really are. Remember their true calling.

You ready?

This retreat was about investing and valuing my own life and potential. I am totally transformed in my belief and trust in my ability to create a wonderful life, one that is filled with adventure, beauty, love, creativity, and connection. Recommended to anyone who wants to open to what is possible for themselves in their life. To one who is willing to face fear in the face and move forward anyway. To someone who needs a path and bit of a push forward to begin their dream life.

Shari

The possibility I wouldn't be terrified of picking up a paint brush made me sign up. Since the retreat I gained personal power, know I can create clarity, and know how to ask myself a clear question for a clear answer. I know what is Yummy to me in any given moment. I feel passionate about painting and diving deep - it's not the painting...it's those unseen places inside. I come back with more power each time!

Free

I hesitated to sign up for Creativity Unleashed Live due time frame availability on the dates. Being away from it all in a beautiful, serene setting with time in community + alone time allowed me to refocus on how I want to spend my time & with whom. It cemented my knowledge to listen to my body and my intuition. This was the most powerful retreat I've ever attended. I think the four days allowed for enough time to really go deeper than say, a two day weekend retreat.
