On Campus Program

Abundant Magic


Join author Elizabeth Gilbert and activist Rachel Cargle for an inspiring weekend full of love, laughter, creativity, self-discovery, and exploration. This program is open to everyone including those who do not identity as “creative.” Elizabeth’s personal definition of “creative living” is any life where you routinely make decisions based on curiosity rather than fear. Therefore, this entire weekend is designed to help you get on the other side of fear, so you can begin to hear and respond to your deepest yearnings. 

Elizabeth and Rachel use their background in creative expression and community connection to establish an uplifting space that quiets your inner critic so you can exist more boldly in the world. Through writing exercises, meditation, movement, and more, experience abundant magic through

  • Letter writing and list making 
  • Journaling and sketching 
  • Breathwork
  • Storytelling.

The only qualification for this retreat is a willingness to do brave, thoughtful soul work alongside your fellow spirit-warriors. Return home with a simple new blueprint for your future, created by the best inspirational teacher: yourself.

Note This program will fill to capacity without social distancing in the room.
