Experience a radical replenishing of your creative well at the Tofte Lake Center — the beautiful artist retreat at the gateway to the Minnesota Boundary Waters Wilderness. 

Immerse yourself in workshops, meals, and play, all focused on feeding the intuitive and creative “gut brain.” Learn how to use food and eating as a catalyst for creativity rather than a distraction from your most creative, connected self. 

 
Registration deadline: March 15, 2017. Only a few spots available!

WHAT'S INCLUDED:
•  Five nights accommodation in beautiful, cozy lakeside cabins
•  Three inspiring meals per day crafted to spark conversation, meditation and creativity
•  Daily workshops to teach you how to better connect your body, mind, and creative practice through writing, visual and embodied art, movement, mindfulness, and food experiences
•  Daily yoga and creative meditation in the peaceful screened-in open-air studio
•  Full access to writing studios, art studios, and library, all tucked in the trees
•  24/7 access to kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, and a wood-fired sauna
•  Independent time to engage in your creative practice, working on a specific project or just exploring and re-connecting

Your retreat at Tofte Lake Center

IS THIS FOR ME?
You are a maker, a creator, a manifestor... someone who has something important to share with the world. You are eager to challenge and explore your relationship to food and your body and discover how that relationship can feed your artistic/creative work. 

The retreat is open to anyone with a creative practice, from beginners to professional artists. During the week, you’ll dive into an artistic project of your choice at any stage of development—from finding inspiration to refining/revising existing material—and use the week’s activities to discover the story you’re telling and how you might tell it.
