Visual Women Entrepreneurs Retreat

Who are you?

What drives you?

What is calling you?

  • Are you attracted to visuals and desire to practice hand drawn graphic illustration to process your ideas and share your work?
  • Are you in the midst of a professional transition or contemplating starting a project of your own? 
  • Does the idea of working visually through potent inquiry light you up?

Then this experience is for you!

I invite you to join me, Sophie Michaud, to process and communicate in a powerful visual way, exploring your relationship to visual thinking, drawing, and inquiry in service of your life’s work.

This retreat is designed as an experiential and interactive visual exploration of who you are, what drives you, why, and how you want to share it with the world.

Join me and experience my signature "See It, Be It" graphic visioning process!

Together We Will:

  • Joyfully practice visual thinking and translating thoughts, feelings, and ideas into simple visual language, using images and words
  • Use visual processing templates to get clear on who you are, your intentions, your gifts, your message, and what you desire to offer the world
  • Use visual methods and tools to communicate in novel and cutting-edge ways that are sure to attract attention if not enthusiastic interest!

Why work visually?

Visuals are a powerful way to BOTH process AND communicate, to think AND share.

Working visually by hand is the secret ingredient of a truly personalized presence and message.

Visuals get noticed and bring attention to your message in a world that can get saturated with information.

OTHER BENEFITS OF WORKING VISUALLY INCLUDE:

  • Reviving our innate connection to images as our first language
  • Leveraging our whole brain by combining logical and imaginative thinking
  • Bringing clarity by organizing complex ideas into a coherent visible piece
  • Playing with a creative and joyful approach to communication that is a sure-fire conversation starter
  • Creating long-lasting documentation that gets you to see and be seen
  • And the best part? All you have to do is show up for practice!

This retreat is for women who desire to:

  • Find their way through a current professional transition
  • Be in inquiry about a potential professional transition
  • Process their thinking and communicate visually
  • Practice simple sketching, including words, shapes, and colors
  • Create practical visual documentation in service of their vision
  • Deepen their connection to their truest selves
  • Shine their unique light in the world!
