While immersing ourselves in the luscious Coastal landscape of British Columbia, we will journey through 7 days of painting and creative exploration, diving deep into our imagination and visionary soul.

Working on your own dedicated canvas, you will be supported and guided step-by-step to paint your own Soul Portrait. Autumn Skye will offer attentive art instruction, giving balanced emphasis on cultivating creative intuition as well as developing skilled technique.
All painting levels welcome!

The art of Autumn Skye Morrison evokes transcendental realms of joyful mystery. Translucent geometries, totemic animals and dancing patterns of light weave together with ‘heartspeak' script, energy spirals and soulful figures. Her meticulous paintings and attentive art instruction give equal emphasis to creative intuition and skilled technique: “To release judgment, move past our mind, breathe deep into the process, and find bliss in each step; we realize that we are boundlessly assisted in our authentic and heart-centred expression."

The spacious 6500 sq. ft. lodge has 11 ocean and forest view rooms and 11 cedar sleeping cabins nestled in the surrounding forest. Our Art Studio will take place in the great room, a large gathering room featuring an artist built floor to ceiling fireplace to enjoy on those cool evenings. The room includes intimate seating areas for easy conversation and spectacular ocean views. From the great room, through garden doors, you can access the large 1000 sq. ft. deck and enjoy the ever changing panoramic ocean views. It’s an artist's dream!

TESTIMONIALS: 

"The retreat went above and beyond expectation. It was truly a heart opening and bliss-filled experience. I learned so much from Skye, Una and all the people involved. I feel I am returning home with new skills and new insight." Emily Kell.

"The results of the paintings created by all of us including those who had never painted before speak to the quality of the instruction. It always felt like she was available at all times with positive and impactful tips. Her easy way and master of skills came from an inspiring place and kept me engaged in the process and excited to discover painting and creativity in new ways."

"This was so much more than an art retreat. The journey into our souls and friendships we made opened our hearts in a profound and life changing way. I am forever grateful for Autumn Skye, for her dedicated teachings and gentle loving heart. I leave feeling refreshed, deeply nourished and saturated with fond memories to carry home."

Artist Statement:
"Before us lies the journey of awakening, the process of healing, the story of returning home. This is the journey of Goddess Rising. 
She is stirring in all of us, men and women of all ages, in every corner of the world. Her Temple dwells in each animal, plant, drop of water, and cell of our being. She is Life, our Mother, the spirit of Creation. 
As humanity stands at the precipice of crucial change, we are each being called to make the vital choice between fear and love. The Goddess beckons us to rise up and remember our birthright of love and creativity. Through our art, no matter the medium, we have an opportunity to transmute shadow into visions of wholeness and evolution. The Goddess speaks through us, each person a unique channel, and it is our sacred duty as artists to help guide humanity forward into new and positive ways of seeing and being. 
And so, I humbly offer this artwork as a mirror to reflect your own divinity. May each painting be a reminder that we are timeless and boundless, and the journey of Goddess Rising is our own."

-Autumn Skye
