The Creative Awakening

03 - 10 July 2022
Despertar da Energia Criativa
What is this experience?

Do you know the “Artist Creator” inside yourself?

Have you ever thought about a unique immersion, offering art and emotional self-knowledge, in a paradisiacal community on a Brazilian beach, where everything, from food to multiple artistic experiences, is thought to open the best of yourself?

The Creative Awakening” is an artistic immersion that offers you the right conditions – poetry & magic united – to awaken up your sleeping potential and your creativity. The process, held in Portuguese and English, will finish with an “artistic baptism” and a performance.

A 7-day retreat where you will be led by facilitators – artists and therapists – with experience inside and outside the country to bring out your best version, your unique and original creative individuality.

Like a poetic acupuncture, you will be stimulated, in a simple and careful way, at various points on the art-life border: from the use of words, to the possibility of reconfiguration of the way you conduct yourself in dialogues, or how you elaborate your visions of reality.

Work on your emotions…

An immersion to find unsuspected patterns of energy within oneself, experiences and sensations “outside the box”, inner selves dormant in time… or meet the potency of future selves; nourish yourself with beauty, colors, touches, spices…
… or delight yourself with nights of surprising magical-poetic experiences & days of unsuspected atmospheres and flavors;

Meet new people and new physical, emotional and mental environments…

Make other syntheses & compositions.
Going beyond yourself to find yourself.

All this on a Paradisiacal beach, in the south of Bahia, Brazil… A place which offers the purest energy of nature: a hot river and the sea to bath your soul and teach you how to navigate in fresh or salty waters. And space-time for physical and spiritual dives…

And, as a culmination of the process, to have the unique experience of participating, with the signature of an artist-creator, in a theatrical experience – a genuine performance – that will be shared with the local community, in a simple and ludic way.

What do we want?

Is it possible to recreate yourself through art?
Can the creative act, the experience of the “state of creativity”, bring about “chemical” changes in the one who experiences it, fostering an artistic individuality – or the expression of our best version?

The retreat will offer a veritable avalanche of experiences, pleasures, games, and sensations to unleash your creative energy and put it into action, in a practical, simple, pleasant, healthy way. The proposal summarizes two decades of experience of the facilitators both in several cities in Brazil and in countries such as France, Germany, Portugal, Italy, Chile, and Mexico.

The work is all designed to awaken the creative and unique potential of each participant, as well as offer a space for recreation of oneself based on artistic actions, allowing access to more pleasure and well-being. As well as a clearing of patterns and opening new possibilities of emotional and psychic responses.

The experiences are composed to provoke and open the participant’s system and to offer an environment, in every detail, at the same time welcoming, and stimulating.

In addition to games and theatrical experiences, we will offer dynamics that work with emotional intelligence, the multiple forms of powerful dialogues, the perception and use, by the participant, of the power of the word and its energetical potentiality; the opening of energetic channels, as well as varied emotional, intellectual and aesthetic stimuli, using the stars and knowledge of ancient traditions such as astrology and theatrical pedagogy.

We are Brazilian, Anthropophagic, we seek unsuspected syntheses in an ethics aesthetics for the 21st century! Come to the possibility of new Images!

The realization of a group task – the creation of a theatrical performance to be shared with the community – and the experience of meeting the public and of an “artistic baptism” or a confirmation of the creative path, allows us to think about the process as an artistical ritual.

The process opens up possibilities of transformation through pleasure (not pain) – through beauty, poetry, through encounters – with oneself, with the other, with nature, with the universe of authors we will work on.

The program is designed so that, with each experience, in a simple way, the participant and the collective take a step further in creating a theatrical performance that will be presented at the end of the process. In party!

Who is it for?
  • The experience is for ALL those looking for more pleasure, joy, art, beauty, and new horizons for life – from 18 to 118 years old.
    For those who feel creative blocks, want to break stagnation in general, or are simply hungry for new experiences and new images.
    Or hunger for more life.
  • For those who need a physical, emotional, and mental detox. Or simply want to take care of oneself, in an original way.
  • For those who want to rest in a paradise ecovillage, at Bahia, and find new people and experiences…especially if they also want to rest from themselves – or rather, from their “dominant self” – giving space and voice to other-selves. Even if shy or mysterious…
  • For those who want to wake up their most creative side and benefit from personal spheres, relationships, work, family, and even spirituality.
  • For artists or non-artists looking for new creative impulses.
