The Experience

Part 1
Connection, Creativit
y & Confidence
Laurentian Mounta

August 20-22, 2023

A women's-only retreat
in collaboration with
Zeina's Kitchen Retreats


When was the last time you let yourself dream and freely explore your possibilities? 

At My Creative Break, we encourage everyone to dream and explore like “a kid” - without the barriers that adult life imposes on us, and with confidence. 


We all have busy days and daily routines and we often get lost in them and forget about ourselves. This retreat will be your Creative Break. You will break out of your routine and go back to dreaming and exploring the way you did when you were a kid - with freedom and confidence.


During this creative break, you will:

  • Stimulate creativity in all senses and feel like a kid again through interactive workshops like journaling, improv techniques (using our imaginations, creating stories together, saying ‘yes’ to challenges, creative team challenges), coloring, sketching, dancing. 

  • Learn to set and plan your creative goals 

  • Get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Gain confidence and the tools to explore new possibilities and grow.

  • Reconnect to something you’ve lost touch with or do something you’ve always wanted to do. You’ll have time for yourself, and we’ll be there to motivate you. Want to write? Bring your notebook. Want to play music? Bring your instruments. Been meaning to get fit? Bring your running shoes.

  • Form meaningful connections. Connection is key, especially if you’ve been off-grid for these past few years. Our activities are all collaborative and we’ll make it easy for you to get to know everyone, connect with them beyond the surface level, learn new skills from them and most likely start new friendships, even if you are introverted.

You will leave feeling rejuvenated, rested, more balanced and full of life and joy! 

What you'll eat

Zeina, your host and chef will prepare all of your meals, will make sure your experience exceeds your expectations and will share some of her fun cooking tips too.  She prepares colorful dishes with lots of love!


Where you'll stay

Escape to a beautiful, bright and spacious chalet in Lac-Supérieur, in the Laurentian Mountains about 2 hours north of Montreal.

The chalet has mix of shared and private bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a hot tub, a pool, a beautiful patio, lots of space and of course a spectacular kitchen where Zeina will brew up her magic. 

Slideshow - flip through!

Part 1 is a women's-only retreat.

There are only 7 spots left. 

Get early-bird price until May 15.

Is this only for artists?

No! Everyone is welcome to join our retreats! At My Creative Break, we believe that everyone is creative, not just artists. Creativity skills allow us to create amazing things like art, processes, deeper connections and most importantly, a joyful life.


Actress Mary Lou Cook said: “'Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun” - we look forward to doing all these in our retreat!

Part 2
Connection, Creativit
y & Adventure

August 22-25, 2023

Open to all. By application only.


Use this part as extension to part 1 or simply join us for 3 days of creativity and adventure in Montreal.

Summer is the best time to explore Montreal - it's 'terrace season' when the city comes alive in all senses! You can enjoy brunch, drinks and people watching from patios,  check out the many art and music festivals, attend outdoor dance nights, bike among nature and more. We invite you to join us and explore Montreal in way that will ignite your creativity, whether you already live in Montreal or not. 

During this creative break, you will:

  • Join a group of like-minded people and explore Montreal in a creative way - think creative walks, dancing, music, storytelling and art combined with visiting key places of interest in Montreal. How about tours of Old Montreal and Montreal's famous Underground City filled with creative activities? Or hiking Mont-Royal combined with a storytelling or music session? Or maybe you want to hone your writing and video creation skills by capturing off-the-beaten path spots in Montreal? The possibilities are endless! 

  • Get studio time to work on your creative endeavors.

  • Learn new skills with our interactive workshops and from other participants.

  • Form meaningful connections, even if you are shy or traveling solo.

  • Get comfortable with the uncomfortable, in a fun and safe way!

  • Part 2 is open to all.

  • Available with or without accommodation. If you need accommodation, you'll have a choice of shared or private room in a high-quality space.

  • The activities will be specifically designed to cater to the group.

  • An application is required to sign up.
