Q: What is a Day Retreat Center?

Are you familiar with "retreating?"  Maybe you, or someone you know has headed off to a remote destination to experience a long retreat from your everyday life?  It can be a powerful experience to step out of everyday life for a period of time and explore in great depth.    Taking time to retreat provides us with the opportunity to celebrate our lives and often to heal and evolve.      Sometimes it’s healing to delve into the deepest, darkest places of our being and uncover our forgotten selves, or explore our lower vibrations.  The journey can awake places of hope, uncover forgotten dreams, or inspire a new way of living life. "Retreating" this way can be very rewarding. But its also good to check in with self regularly... explore themes of growth and self-discovery across a span of days, weeks, and months, without abruptly interrupting life.  

The Divine Life Playhouse is a Day Retreat Center that invites you to playfully explore and support your personal growth on a daily basis. We offer you a sacred place for checking in with yourself and listening to your inner nudges. You can sit and relax with a book, step through a self guided discovery station, or just people watch and observe the moment.

We offer mini retreats, classes, artistic playtimes,  speaking & discussion groups, playshops,  day retreats, community art collaborations, celebrations, and more…   We are here to support you in personal growth and "being present" with your life.  This is a place to celebrate life in all its complexity. 

Q: What is Playful Self Discovery?

We don't always have to be so serious about ourselves. Personal Growth & Self Help can be Playful and it can be Fun.

Adults have often had plenty of years  to pack  up personal "baggage,"  and often, in response we have developed all kinds of rotten patterns & dysfunctional habits.  But we can acknowledge our pain, transform our lives, and still have fun.  We can grow, evolve, and develop our lives with ease... over time.   We can travel through life experiences with hope and vision.

This is your life.  
Step into your power and explore your options.


Life is full of options.  Life is full of choices.    We walk down paths, turn around in circles sometimes, 
make false starts, fall backwards, and sometimes feel complete chaos…. 
But we also breath in moments of full clarity, cross bridges of hope, discover our true beauty, and see our lives work out in ways far more divine than we can imagine on our own.    

Life is here for you.

Let's live in our Inspiration.  Let's playfully explore all our options.  
Let's do some discovery of self, community, and global connections.
