Awaken your inner muse and create passionately and freely - even if you've never picked up a paint brush before! Reconnect with your intuitive flow and higher wisdom by joining Montine Blank and her team for her most popular intuitive art and yoga retreat: Eat.Paint.Love! During this retreat, along with daily yoga, you will learn a powerful creative practice that allows you to know, grow, and heal yourself. Imagine yourself painting, writing, and moving spontaneously from intuition, so that your authentic self, your creative muse, and your higher self can team up to send you the wisdom, insights, and answers you need to heal, rediscover, and expand yourself. Picture being able to take part in daily yoga and deeply-healing ayurvedic massage sessions that support your process, by helping you release blocks and open yourself up to new possibilities. Enjoy sunset aperitivi poolside, join a wine-tasting in a nearby village, get groovy in candle-light dancing, and take short hikes up to see phenomenal 180-degree views of the countryside.

The Agriturismo is a renovated 17th-century family-held medieval property that overlooks rolling hills of Tuscany, just outside of Florence. Set high above the city of Chianti in Greve, the meandering stone compound is predominantly forested with chestnut, cherry and oak trees, and home to a producing olive grove with more than 1600 trees. On eight of the thirty hectares are three olive tree varieties, including frantoiano, leccino, and coreggiolo, the oldest of which were planted about 100 years ago, and the youngest planted in 2001.

Within the simplicity and charm of a historic medieval village, the owners have created a warm and welcoming environment. Each spacious suite and all living spaces are uniquely furnished with family antiques passed from one generation to the next. Each private apartment has its own entrance and outdoor sitting area.

The property boasts a large swimming pool and spacious wine cantina built in 1624, which is a beautiful private space where we will be painting. The barbecue and wood-burning oven, as well as the laundry room, are available for to all users. Seasonally the owners produce amazing jams with local fruits (blackberries, figs or cherries) and with a little luck, find good mushrooms and truffles, used prepare delicious sauces. The owners have lovingly cared for this house and continue to make olive oil from its bountiful grove.

Program

This ultra-relaxing, fun, inspiring, and transformative retreat is for adults with any level of art or yoga experience, including those with none.

About Intuition Painting®

These sessions invite you to explore with pure creative freedom and express authentically using paint on life-sized easels. By focusing on the process, not the product, you let go of perfection, comparison, and control and start trusting your intuition, both inside the studio and out. Practicing raw expression through the medium of paint, you release, restore, and ground yourself; you can swiftly process emotional blocks; and reconnect with sacred wisdom, making way for clarity and new possibilities.

The resulting paintings become visual diaries, offering insights about your inner world and giving guidance for your life. Participants of Intuition Painting® experience renewed connection with their imagination and a deeper understanding of themselves.

For some of you, it may have been decades since you painted. It will be surprising to you how quickly you will reconnect with the joy playing with colors and following the fun. For others, you may make art for a living and are feeling the need to begin making art for yourself again. However you arrive, the time spent in mindful creative bliss and exploration will result in joyful, colorful accidents and the appearance of mysterious figures and shapes that will do wonderful things for your brains.
