The Retreat N’ Rise Foundation
Retreat N’ Rise Foundation is
a unique, non-profit organization,
for artists, scientists, and all creative seekers.
Purpose of the retreats is to offer a guidance and support to unfunded,
creative people of all ages from around the globe.
When they need to strengthen their voice of inspiration,
increase motivation, or unblock
their creative flow they can come for our fully,
or partially paid by the foundation retreat, and return to their work
energy and a new purpose.
need an aware witness to clarify their insight,
an educated healer to encourage their self-healing,
or a wise presence of another
to find a new direction.
This is the
main reason for creating our Foundation.
Another reason is to utilize
a unique set of my skills,
where my education in fine art and psychology,
the experiences in and outside of my 40 years of
of assisting people in their creative evolution, come together.
My teachings are rooted in love and wisdom granting me a strong and open presence.
They are based on experiences
of guiding others, self-examination,
and continuous education giving me a solid awareness in the world of instability,
which in itself
is a rarity.
The European upbringing, combined with pursuing an
education in art,
marked the importance of artistic expression in raising my children;
now all three are successful
writers, musicians, and performers.
people often question the point of their work, especially
when external and immediate rewards are missing.
At that time,
they search for a view from a greater perspective,
where the purpose of their work becomes clear,
because it fits in the big picture
of social and personal meaningfulness.
That’s why this work is
so needed, and yet,
most of the creative people are underpaid and have no funds to come for a retreat.
With the arts and creativity being nearly eradicated from school programs
in North America and the many other parts of the world,
it is essential now to invest
in the most human expression – creativity.
Without creativity, we are not humans.
Most of the time in learning institutions and workplaces creativity
is not reinforced, supported and expected.
People see repetitiveness, insignificance, pointlessness,
and they turn to
prescription or street drugs to muffle self-depreciative and self-destructive hopeless
The purpose of the Retreat
N’ Rise Foundation is to provide financial support
for creative people around the world.
We will start from providing paid retreats
Next will be residency,
co-creative projects, designing and implementing changes of the envirentment
based on integrity, beauty, creation. Instead of irreverence, ugliness
