The “Do What You Love” retreat 2011 ( Part 1)

Do What You Love

So much to tell about where I’ve been the last couple of weeks. Over to the Impossible Factory in Enschede, The Netherlands and back to the UK, to the rolling Yorkshire Dales for the very first “Do What you Love” retreat.

Far too much to condense into even a couple of posts so I will be giving my thoughts on both these trips over the next few days. I’ve come back from my travels with a bit of a bug so today will just be a little snippet.

The retreat also made such a huge impression that it is hard to know where to start.

So let’s just start with where it was held. At a centre just outside Richmond at the end of the Yorkshire Dales. Hidden from the road if you didn’t know it was there you would drive right past it.

The accomodation was in gorgeous eco houses , bright and spacious, and scattered around the grounds so that most of them were not overlooked.

And as if that wasn’t lovely enough , we had all our meals in this tipi. An open fire in the centre kept it cosy. And the caterers ensured a steady flow of delicious meals to fuel our creative energy ! Over the next few days I’ll write more about the workshops and the creative business sessions . But none of these could have been successful without the mix of amazing women who travelled from all over, from America, Canada, Ireland, Italy,Denmark and all corners of the UK. I feel very fortunate that I was able to go there as well.

  1. It’s such a joy to relive everything by reading about it on our blogs!
    It was pleasure to get to know you. Love what you did with your photos. I’m trying to find the time to get into PhotoShop for a play 🙂

  2. I definitely was feeling sluggish/ a bit drained yesterday as well. I think a day of rest was much needed!

    Hope you’re feeling better. Love seeing your pics and reliving all the juicy goodness. Can’t wait to read more AND hear about the Imposible Project (how cool!)


  3. Lovely photos and the venue is a great place to start! Somehow it’s easier to start with the physical space than all of the other stuff we did. 🙂 Take are of yourself!
