RETREATS

PAINT WITH CARRIE AT HER HOME!

Enjoy a retreat at Carrie’s home, House of Miracles, a sacred space devoted to honoring creativity.

These semi-private retreats with only 4 participants offer a unique chance to get the attention, support, and guidance you deserve while you paint.

Carrie will offer instruction, share her painting process, and answer questions that arise as you create paintings from start to finish.

Having this type of in-person support and feedback is invaluable during the intuitive process, which is why many past participants have described these retreats as life-changing!

The week will be full of art-making and celebration, as well as time for quiet and reflection, all designed to nurture and romance your Creative Spirit.

This is an all-inclusive experience to take care of your needs so that you can focus on time for your art and yourself.

ABOUT HOUSE OF MIRACLES

Carrie’s home is an artist sanctuary and spiritual space to honor the Creative Spirit that resides in all of us.

With breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, every moment is a masterpiece.

Original artwork throughout invokes joy and soulfulness that make this home a rare and memorable artistic experience for all who visit.

During your stay, walk to the sandy beach, explore this quaint seaside village, and enjoy the homemade pastries at the local coffee shop just a short walk away.

HōM is located in Steilacoom, Washington. Steilacoom is pronounced “Still-a-coom” and means “Little Pink Flower.”

Please note: HōM is a devotional space to nurture your creativity. No alcohol, tobacco, or mood-altering substances are permitted on the grounds. Thank you for understanding.

You can also book a stay at HōM any time to create your own special getaway.

ABOUT THE AREA

During our scheduled retreat time, we will stay close to House of Miracles to focus on art and activities to nurture our creativity and to enjoy the local scene, but you are welcome to come early or stay later before or after the retreat to explore the Pacific Northwest. You can book additional nights at HōM.

Ideally located, this coastal community offers something for everyone and is within driving distance to epic destinations, including Mt. Rainier, Pike Place Market, the Pacific Ocean, Olympic National Park, Olympia, Gig Harbor, and more.

From HōM, walk to the Sunnyside Beach where you can beachcomb, swim, watch wildlife, and rent your own kayaks or paddle boards. Or jump on the ferry to explore nearby tranquil Anderson Island. It is home to a network of trails and parks, paved roads perfect for bicycle rides, and two freshwater lakes for kayaking and swimming.

If big city life is what you are craving, Tacoma and Seattle are a driving distance away. Both cities offer world-class museums, fine dining, and uniquely Pacific Northwestern seasonal events.

Tacoma museums include the Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass. Seattle museums include the Seattle Art Museum, Chihuly Garden and Glass, MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry), MoPop (Museum of Pop Culture) and many more.

Take a day trip to breathtaking Mount Rainier or iconic Portland for the best food scene in the USA.

Travel times to many iconic destinations:

  • 30 minutes from Gig Harbor
  • 30 minutes from Tacoma
  • 1 hour from Seattle
  • 1.5 hours from Mount Rainier National Park
  • 2 hours to Olympic National Park
  • 2 hours from Portland, Oregon
  • 3-4 hours from Vancouver BC, Canada

HōM is a place to rest, rejuvenate and celebrate creativity, blessings, and miracles. It is designed to nurture the most creative and spirited part of yourself that longs to manifest.”

What Past Participants Are Saying:

I recently attended one of Carrie’s workshops and found it remarkable…

in the way it transformed the way I think about my work – I can now say that I know what it is like to truly paint from my heart and soul. If you are looking for a way to loosen up, develop your own style, and paint truly from a place of joy and childlike freedom, consider painting with Carrie…the energy and support of fellow painters in the group was an amazing as well – the whole experience was just wonderful.”

– CINDY

Three years ago, I was down in the dumps with a health crisis.

I lost the urge to paint. No interest, because there was no joy. One day I heard about an intuitive painting technique taught by Carrie Schmitt. It seemed more approachable, liberating and totally different than my usual ways. My interest was peaked, and I had nothing to lose. I tried it and this happy piece of lightness came to be, despite the darkness. So began my healing and return to art. I discovered that there was still beauty inside me and the joy was just buried temporarily.”

– STEPHANIE

I’ve attended many art and spiritual workshops over the years,

but never have I attended one that combined both of what I love in one experience. This divine workshop not only taught me many new art skills to add to my creative practice, but more importantly taught me MANY ways to look at my work in progress. THANK YOU Carrie for such a worthwhile and life changing weekend.”
