The Creative Community has been running for 7 years, and is about merging the best of being on retreat with getting work done! We hire out a retreat center (so far have been in Bali and Thailand) and bring together people who want to live a healthy juicy lifestyle AND get epic shit done!
Mostly we attract Tantra Teachers who want to build their online business (aka Tantrapreneurs), but we have also had authors, singers, philosophers and yoga teachers. People who want to balance:
time in nature
fulfilling life purpose
living in community
kirtan and song circles
We have some structure and some freedom.
Structure is mostly weekdays, with morning practices (taught by community members or we do online yoga classes together), shared breakfast, some talks and skill sharing on entrepreneur skills, mastermind groups, accountability sessions and co-working space, with shared lunch. The catered meals on weekdays give us all more time to focus on our creativity.
We also have forum sharing circles, a deep space to crack ourselves open, share what is moving in us and process anything that needs to be cleared. Every Friday morning is dedicated to personal processing, and this is one event that all community members are asked to join.
Intention of co-living is to stay aware of your own projections and triggers (ie self responsibility), conscious communication and intention to clear anything in the way of love, no gossiping about anyone else in the community. Use forum space to clear yourself! We invite people with a level of emotional maturity who resonate with these principles.
We keep a good balance of group structures and time to get work done...as well as free time.
This is not a personal processing retreat...we are focused on creativity, and simply clear anything in the way.
There is also a balance between meeting as a community, meeting one on one, and having alone time.
There is a balance of structures and structurelessness!
Weekends we can plan trips around this island (and neighboring Fuerteventura, 25 minutes boat away). Lanzarote has volcanic natural areas, hot springs and beaches.
Join us on this magical volcanic island, with its stunning beaches and bubbling hot springs. Part of Spain, but close to West Africa, Lanzarote is the only Canary Island that has a law against high-rise buildings. As a result, it has not followed the same fate as its neighboring islands with high rise tourist developments. Lanzarote thus maintains it's natural beauty and charming culture.
It is the warmest place in Europe in the winter! Up to 22 degrees in the day, and lows of 14 at night. & hours of sunshine in Dec and Jan. It can be extremely windy in summer, but is less windy in winter months.

NOTE: Those who book three months will be prioritized. After filling this retreat center, we will then help arrange additional accommodation near by, which can be for shorter periods of time.
Covid and Lockdown: Let's just mention the pink elephant in the room! We have heard that things are very relaxed on the island, and no "outbreaks" happened there. Even in Spring, they were way more shanti than mainland Spain. Right now you have to wear masks in public areas (but thankfully can take off when your lie on the beach). But that is part of why we are making a live-in community. That way, no matter what happens "out there" we can make our own reality, have our own gatherings and dance our own dance. The property has a spacious garden, and organic veggie deliveries....so even if the world goes into deep freeze again, we will still be living it up!
