Untamed Creative Retreat
The road was never meant to tame you, but awaken you!
The Untamed Creative Retreat is for women who long to enter into a wide-open space where they can turn off the outside noise and demands of life for a time of connecting with their truest self, and inner knowing for a creative dive, a fun unearthing, and a dance with beauty.
“Imagine setting it all down--papers, plans, appointments, everything--leaving only a note: "Gone to the fields to be lovely. Be back when I'm through with blooming...." Camas Lilies, a poem by Lynn Ungar
Join us for a time of rekindling joy, and passion through artful experiences, mingled with inspirational-unsticking to allow for re-energizing, moving into new vision, new purpose and renewed inspiration.
During this transformational retreat you will engage in creative exercises with the purpose of unlocking and releasing the treasure within. You will create one-of-a-kind masterpieces that will be meaningful as significant markers along your journey, as well as fun art methods to add to your creative tool belt. There is nothing more important that breaking away from the chorus to be reminded of your own inner voice.
Created by professional Life Coach, and artist, Kimber Britner, a powerful motivator helping women recognize the depth of what they possess. Kimber understands that creativity is a process and way of being, not merely a product. Art provides the most wonderful means to engage and recapture ones original freedom and aliveness, which often gets buried under the “shoulds” of everyday life.
Research has shown that engaging in creativity helps carry information and revelation from our heads to our hearts. One need only to be open to explore new ways of seeing, while being supported by ample love, instruction and creative supplies for the novice, reluctant creative, or seasoned pro.
With a rich and authentic style, Kimber holds the space to rethink where you might be getting tripped up and to give yourself permission to step outside of your box. With her artistic flare, professional coaching expertise, Daring WayTM and Rising StrongTM certification, innovative ability to create on and off the canvas, you are in for a meaningful, and enlivening experience.Click here to Read Kimber's Bio.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Thomas Merton
What you will experience at the Untamed Creative Retreat
A Little Chat with Kimber
For years clients have expressed the desire for regular support throughout the day, hence, my inspirational Facebook quotes to uplift and encourage.Follow me! My book, Untamed Heart, Releasing Your Creative Genius, is also a great support and fun, inspiration road map for living an inspired life. Many still choose more in-depth support through one-on-one coaching. And still there are others who invest in themselves by jumping into the river, feeling the current and getting fully submerged in a creative and inspiring atmosphere. Personally, that is me!, There is nothing like an enriching experience where you have chosen to be all in and are ready to receive the gifts you are meant to receive.
The more we cultivate our inner listening and are open to receive insights and inspiration; we reignite our own vitality and vibrancy. This is our birthright.
Sometimes life makes us wobbly and we need to shift, rearrange and find fresh inspiration to help us spring forth into new territory, new seasons, or new desires in our lives. We need a kind of spacious nurture that allows room to spread out, explore and connect with our intuition. This is an environment where one has permission to flow naturally, and organically, to reconnect to ones truest self, and things the heart might be yearning for below the surface. In responding with a 'yes' despite the circumstance, it's amazing to see hearts align to more Inner truth and authenticity.
"Kimber is one in a million. She carries such wisdom, strength, respect and dignity. She has a way of speaking to the core of your heart and also waters it with such grace and beauty. If you can spend any time with Kimber, you will walk away feeling valued, respected, appreciated and known. I highly recommend Kimber. She dares greatly to love." Rivkah
"KIMBER CULTIVATES A SAFE AND CARING ATMOSPHERE WITH HER PRESENCE AND KNOWLEDGE. I FELT VALUED AS AN INDIVIDUAL IN THE GROUP AND I FELT OPEN TO BEING MY AUTHENTIC SELF. I AM GRATEFUL KIMBER HAS BRAVELY AND WILLINGLY MADE HER SELF AVAILABLE TO WALK WITH OTHERS THROUGH THIS IMPORTANT WORK.
KIMBER IS A TREASURE AND IT IS VERY EVIDENT SHE IS DOING HER LIFE'S WORK. SHE SHINES IN CREATIVITY AND LIGHT. I RECOMMEND HER WORKSHOPS, CLASSES, GROUPS AND ANY OTHER FUN ENDEAVOR HER SOULS DELIGHTS IN SHARING WITH OTHER WOMEN!" HEATHER COLLINS

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAID:
"My heart was leaping and cheering you on as I heard every word. So many women like myself need what you've courageously trail blazed for us. Well done! Anyone who is searching to fully follow their heart and unlock their untamed creativity, this retreat is the real deal! There is NO price tag compared to the beauty, freedom, wisdom, joy, creativity and way being made in your heart to the freedom I received while at the Delta Sisters retreat. My time with Kimber and the Delta Sisters has truly been "A taste of heaven on earth.""
"The Delta Sisters is a well-organized retreat that allowed me to experience self-awareness in a new way. Through art play I was able to get my feelings out and also tap into a creative side of myself that has been stuffed for a long time. I learned through "art play" how to express my story, and to take ownership of my own story. Through creative writing and art I was taught how to get in touch with who I truly am, as opposed to what society teaches me to be. It exceeded all of my expectations."
"Kimber is an amazing and beautiful facilitator of Brenè Brown's material and her own. She encourages you to create your own beautiful creations. There's no pressure to be an artist. It's all about fun, letting go and feeling your own emotions, seeing and experiencing what is happening in the moment. It was perfect!"
"The Delta Sisters Retreat was a much needed escape for me. The "Sisters" surround you with love and permission to feel your emotions. No limitations! I loved learning how to process my sensitive emotional turmoil that I experience as a woman sometimes. My greatest take away was putting words to certain descriptions of emotions. Things that we experience everyday that I had never sat down and quite processed. My greatest take away is learning there is a process! It was perfect!"
"I don't like to build up expectations for things like this so I'm able to enter in to what's happening more easily, and then whatever happens is always a good surprise. That said, everything in the descriptions did become a reality, freedom, sistering, safety, affirming, beauty and the desire to continue working to creative beauty around me in new ways. It has been a long time for me to be in a group of emotionally healthy women who had the same desire for creating and expressing. This has been so refreshing and grounding. The Untamed Creative experience for me has rekindled, given new tools, and greater confidence to my heart wish to be able to express beauty as often and in as many ways as possible. "
