I will be offering a Myers-Briggs infused version of my Five Fs to Creative Freedom program during a spring Creative Wellness Retreat on beautiful Whidbey Island (just outside of Seattle). Whether you need healing, a little extra boost, or a getaway to keep those creative fires burning, this unique retreat offers you an opportunity to spend precious, quality time with your creativity.

Here’s what you’ll get with your Creative Wellness Retreat registration:

4 nights and 3 ½ days of tranquility, artfully designed to refill your creative well with experiential sessions individualized for your unique brand of creativity, plus built in time for individual reflection or creative activity.

Delicious, catered meals (with no need to do dishes afterward.)

Accommodations in a secluded mansion where you can daydream on the veranda, wander the beautiful grounds, or walk to the ocean (only a mile away)

Myers-Briggs temperament assessment and programming individualized to your unique temperament profile

One-on-one coaching to work on whatever is most important to you

Optional guided morning meditation and evening relaxation sessions, including professional tips on improving the quality of your sleep

During our experiential programming I’ll guide you through the Five Fs to Freedom so you can transform your inner critic into an ally and get acquainted with your unique creative process.

About your retreat facilitators

I’m Kerry Schafer, and I can’t wait to share these life altering experiences with you. I’m a bestselling author (as my alter ego Kerry Anne King), and I’m also a certified Master Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, a certified Myers-Briggs facilitator, a licensed mental health counselor and an RN. You can see more about me and my coaching here.

What matters more than my alphabet is that I’ve been the mom writing in the playroom and during soccer and theater practice. I’ve written during a bout with breast cancer and after the death of my husband. I’ve written around the demands of a day job. I’ve had novels published that flopped and I’ve been on the bestseller lists. So I know the depletion and the burn out and the despair, but I’ve learned some amazing secrets and processes over the years that make everything SO MUCH EASIER and more joyful.

I don’t get to time travel back and do it all over again, but I can teach these things to you and make your creative life easier, and that gets me excited.

My co-facilitator, Christina Delay, is an award-winning author who also leads retreats around the world with Cruising Writers. After studying her Myers-Briggs type, she began a process to creative and emotional healing and relearning how to be creatively open to life’s opportunities. She combines her retreat leadership and event planning skills to create events that retreaters can fully relax at, feel comfortable in, and use the time to deepen their writing craft knowledge and understanding of their own creativity while also forging life long relationships.

Even if you believe retreats are for “other writers,” even if you’re an introvert, even if you don’t quite believe that your creative health is worth the money, this is your opportunity to commit to your creative life.
