May 23-28, 2024

This retreat is currently sold out with a waitlist.  Fill out the application here to be added to the "first to know" in case a space becomes available.

In the lowcountry of South Carolina, there is an island surrounded by tidal creeks, pristine marshland, and the warm Atlantic ocean.  In this pocket of absolute magic is the witchy, unhurried, carefully curated retreat experience for aerialists, physical performers, and other artists looking to rediscover their creative fire.

We'll spend 5 nights in a lovingly crafted container designed to seduce your Muse, awaken your inspiration, and eat a lot of food while laughing loudly.  

Programming will include shadow work, exercises in creative excavation, and a healthy dollop of witchcraft led by yours truly.  We'll also enjoy a taster of different embodiment practices by guest teachers to give you a break from your usual creative practice, tempting the Muse to give abundantly.

An excursion day to historic and magnificent Botany Bay Heritage Preserve will ensure you meet the ocean like you've never met her before (this beach is what the entire Carolina coast would look like if it had been left the fuck alone).  

Limited to 12 participants, applications open Friday, October 13th (ooooh) at a variety of price points.

Sample schedule:

Creatrix has been designed to inspire and re-awaken your relationship with your Muse- your own creative force.  In service of this, I've created a roomy schedule with free time each day.  I hope you'll use it to read, walk on the beach, kayak, ride a bike through the nearby state park, take a nap, take a break, enjoy the peace, write in your journal, or do whatever the fuck you want.  In the meantime, a sample day might look like this:

  • 7-9:30 am:  Breakfast, coffee, morning pages, sleeping in...

  • 10-12 pm:  Morning programming with Rachel at Covenstead house

  • 12-1pm:  Delicious lunch provided by our resident kitchen magician

  • 1-2pm:  Free time to take more naps, digest, stare at the ocean, talk to a tree...

  • 2-4pm:  Movement practice at the Embodiment Emporium Auditorium, always designed to unlock and inspire, and never the same twice

  • 4-6pm:  Optional activities with the group, or free time to begin your evening early!

  • 8:30pm:  Fireside chats at the fire pit

Our excursion day to historic Botany Bay Heritage Wildlife Refuge is Sunday, May 26th

About Edisto Island

View from Covenstead house:

When I say that I designed this experience to give you space and time for yourself, I meant it. 


Edisto Island is a largely undeveloped coastal community in South Carolina, an hour's drive south of Charleston International Airport.  If you were thinking Myrtle Beach party vibes, think again.  There is one grocery store.  There is one book store.  There's a saying here that goes, "Welcome to Edisto.  Hope you're not in a hurry." And that's good advice, because most people here ride around in golf carts rather than cars.  

Both Covenstead and Siren house are located in a gorgeous gated community called The Hammocks, surrounded by tidal marsh.  You are welcome to drive in, or if you are flying, you can rent a car...but you don't have to.  The best way to get around here is on a bicycle.

This is a place of extraordinary natural beauty, where daily life is literally determined by the rise and fall of the tides and the cycles of the moon.  A high tide during a full or new moon is called a King Tide, and it will come right up to your front door some days.  

The longer you look on Edisto, the more you see.  Tiny mollusks lapping at the sea water, baby turtles crawling to the surf, even the Spanish moss that drapes the monster trees is alive.  Hidden life...layered and secret until you take the time to really see. 

Like you.  

That is why I chose this place.

It is a place that whispers in the words of Rumi:

The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you.

Don't go back to sleep.
