Frequently asked questions

We want to be sure to answer all your questions, here are the most common questions we get asked about our workshops and retreats.

Why group events? 2017-10-30T22:24:00+00:00

There is something extremely powerful about participating in a workshop or retreat as part of a group. We have found that spending time in a structured setting with other women who experience similar thoughts, experiences, and feelings, helps us to feel reassured that we’re not alone – or inadequate – or just plain crazy. It also feels more courageous and committed because we must “put ourselves out there” – and let our real self be seen. The results are quite powerful given the brief amount of time we share together.

What is the maximum number of participants? 2017-10-30T22:24:41+00:00

We are committed to creating a nurturing and trusting environment for each of our events so that you feel that you are receiving personal attention. For that reason, we keep our workshops and retreats relatively small. Painting workshops tend to have 5-10 participants and other workshops or retreats (such a Create your Life or Visionboard workshops) tend to have a maximum of 20 participants.

What if I need individual help during or after the event? 2017-10-30T22:25:27+00:00

The workshops and retreats are designed to work through the steps as outlined. Feel free to ask for any help you need during the event.

When you are ready, we invite you to participate in “Follow-on Sessions” as outlined on our website.

You may also find it helpful to sign up for the Create & Connect weekly newsletter or follow the blog.

You are welcome to contact Miranda directly if you’re feeling like you need a little nudge.

I feel guilty for taking the time away from people and responsibilities in my life – and spending the money on myself – to do this. 2017-10-30T22:26:21+00:00

You’re not alone. We hear that from many women who are just not used to putting themselves first. And, isn’t it possible that that’s part of the reason you feel the way you feel now? There’s no time like the present to take positive action. Think of it in terms of investing in your happiness and well-being – which will give you the energy and enthusiasm to share with the people who are important in your life. It’s like they advise when you are on an airplane – you must put your oxygen mask on first if you really want to be able to help someone else.

We’re 100% confident that our events will be authentic, engaging, thought-provoking, creative, inspiring and transformational. You have nothing to lose by enrolling. Make the commitment to yourself and a more balanced and creative life today.

Do I have to talk openly about my process? 2017-10-30T22:26:32+00:00

No – no one is forced to talk. However, it helps you to create awareness and get the most of the other participant’s input. Sometimes participants start out a bit hesitantly because they are unsure what to expect and feel uncertain about how their process will be received. Once they realize that the event is a safe environment – and what is said there stays there – they tend to open up. Sometimes it feels good to get things off your chest or to share your dreams and fears with others. It helps you move forward.

I’m not sure I can afford the course. 2017-10-30T22:26:40+00:00

We do our best to balance quality offerings with cost consciousness to make our events and other services accessible to you. Some of our events offer an installment plan to help you make this self-investment possible. Ultimately, you have to believe that you are worth it.

Installment Plan 2017-10-30T22:26:50+00:00

Some of our events offer to pay by installment. The installment plan usually starts 3 months before the event date (one 3rd of the price plus 50 EUR as a first installment to claim your space at the event) and each installment is due every month thereafter. For more information about the installment plan, please check details on the event or contact info@createandconnect.org
