member retreat
JANUARY 26-28, 2016  |  Outrageous! Cabin(?) In the woods  + Cottage

A weekend retreat designed to support creative imagination and renewed commitment for independent professionals.

During the weekend we will cultivate the practices of attention, self reflection, and rest. Through facilitated group work and space for personal creativity, we will look at the internal and external resources needed to build healthy lives and sustain meaningful work.

 
Whatever unique contribution we make in this world will be born of our creativity and our wholeness.
— Brené Brown

THIS RETREAT IS ONLY OPEN TO MERCURY STUDIO MEMBERS (and their +ones).

Retreat Details:

Thursday 1/26, 5pm - Saturday 1/28, 3pm

The Member Retreat is back again! Riffing off the monthly Member Brunch, we’ve planned a beautiful weekend retreat at a wild location, just for you (our members)! This year's Fear Couch theme is self-sabotage, self-love, and celebration. We'll explore this theme by looking at our larger vision and goals, acknowledging the ways we show up, or don’t, and learning the skill of celebration to help us hold on to our goals for the year ahead. Pairing this real-talk sharing with time for rest and fun, we’ll cook and eat all our meals together and relax in a funky-fresh cabin less than a 2 hour drive away.

What to Expect:

  • Cooking & Eating: Teams will cook together and we will all eat well!
  • Rest: We will make space for physical and mental rest through intentional pauses and mindfulness practices.
  • Sharing & Listening: We will explore the qualities of listening and sharing through group conversations and mindfulness practices.
  • Reflection: We’ll share tools for self-reflection and creatively use those tools during the weekend.
