The first time I thought about a macrame retreat was in 2020, a time when I was immersed in running my first business group coaching program, exclusively for macrame artists. The seed of the idea to organize a macrame retreat was planted by my students, who envisioned a transformative experience beyond the confines of a virtual classroom.

Yet, the prospect of organizing a retreat stirred a blend of excitement and trepidation within me. The fear of failure loomed large. This was something I had never organised before nor had I attended to. Doubt whispered, asking, “Who was I to undertake this venture?” It took two years, marked by moments of hesitation and self-reflection, before I summoned the courage to take the first substantial step — paying 50% for a venue, a commitment that propelled me forward.

Once I made that jump, there was no turning back!

I had opened a portal to a reality where the macrame retreat I envisioned would not only come to fruition but thrive and be fully booked.

That’s exactly what happened! ✨✨✨✨

The inaugural retreat exceeded my expectations, becoming a space where creativity blossomed, connections were made, and laughter echoed.

The success of the first retreat stirred a fresh set of aspirations among the amazing women who attended. They yearned for an experience abroad, and so, the destination for 2024 became Seville in Spain — a place that resonates with culture, history, and the promise of another incredible macrame journey.

I want to acknowledge the integral role that my community plays in shaping the retreat:

YOU inspire me,

YOU lead me to the best decisions in my business,

and YOU are my co-creator of the retreat.

The essence of trust is knotted into every aspect of this experience — trust in myself, in the participants, and in the universe. I can’t deny that sometimes the fear of uncertainty lurks, but it’s counterbalanced by a deeper knowing that this will be yet another extraordinary macrame retreat.

The Macrame Retreat I’m envisioning is five days flowing with macrame, creativity, rest, relaxation, good food, meaningful conversation, a touch of spirituality, and laughter. I believe that macrame brings happiness, relaxation, creativity, calmness, and joy.

What I am asking you is…..are you ready to trust yourself and gift yourself the time to

❤️ Macrame +

❤️ creativity +

❤️ rest & relaxation +

❤️ meaningful conversation +

lots of laughter

It’s my invitation to leap into 2024 with an abundance of macrame moments, memories, and days filled with happiness.

Are you ready to take the leap and make 2024 INCREDIBLY MACRAME?
