Kimber Britner and Lisa Fairley McCord, have come together as The Delta Sisters to host unique creative women’s retreats. You will find the perfect retreat setting scrumptiously tucked away on a beautiful family farm following the trail of the Mississippi Delta, 40 miles west of Memphis, between Wilson and Osceola, AR. Guests will stay on the property, dine together and enjoy the creative activates in one of the families barns!
The Delta Sisters Retreats are grand adventures filled with fun, luxurious creativity, and life-shifting inspiration for the novice, reluctant creative, or seasoned pro.
The retreats are designed to serve up love, nurture and rest oozing out of the four- generation homestead built by the sister’s community minded, culture-shaping granddad who served under seven Governors for the state of Arkansas on Agricultural and Industrial commissions. You just can’t help but tap into your creativity in this environment.
Every detail has been thought about to create an intimate environment conducive to pampering, fun, inspiration and growth. Aside from the particular event format you will have time for reflective walks, journaling and inspired play. Being creative, in the end is always about how you see and respond to life.
Give yourself the gift of an exquisite get-away for your mind, body and spirit that will awaken your heart in an artful and meaningful way and leave you reenergized and sparked for life.
The Delta Sisters will be hosting a photography retreat in September exploring and documenting the people and places of the Arkansas Delta. More information to follow.
