Artella's "Creative ManiFestival" retreat is organized to strike a unique balance between exploring new content, making new friends, and, of course, PLAYING with words and art.

You will spend three days and nights at beautiful Wisdom House, a restored convent on 54 serene acres, including an authentic labyrinth on the grounds, right in the midst of the Autumn foliage.

A flexible schedule allows you to have a completely customized experience. Participate in four workshops of your choice, presented by Artella Founder Marney Makridakis and other inspiring instructors. Several "open times" during each day are also yours to design: play in an all-day Open Art Studio, walk the labyrinth, participate in a healing yoga class, enjoy live music with new friends, or reflect quietly in one of Wisdom House's beautiful, sacred spots.

You will enjoy delicious, healthful meals in the company of the scrumptious Artella community, followed by inspiring, motivating speakers, including keynote speaker Jill Badonsky, author of The Nine Modern Day Muses (And a Bodyguard).

You will never be the same!

The mission of this Prosperity Playshop Weekend is to offer each participant new skills, connections, and experiences to more easily and effectively tap into our vast powers of creativity, productivity, and prosperity. By selecting your own workshops, you can completely tailor the weekend in a way that stirs your soul in the greatest way.

Several "open times" have been designated throughout the retreat, during which you will have access to an ongoing Open Art Studio, art demos and activities, yoga sessions, live music performances, and the opportunity to explore the outdoor grounds and one of New England's oldests outdoor labyrinths.

The retreat begins with Dinner and a Synchronicity Ceremony on Thursday night, November 11, and concludes after lunch on Sunday, November 14.
