The Art of Wonder Retreat
An Enchanted Creative Retreat
with Amy T. Won
April 21-27, 2024
Dear tender hearts, it’s time to choose lightness and delight! Let wonder soothe your weary soul and rekindle your creativity; it’s been a heavy few years. Wake up to golden sunshine and the misty, rolling hills of Tuscany. Explore what lights you up as you wander the breathtaking Italian countryside in spring. Make a map of secret places, mood-paint in wild abandon, and hand-craft a wonder-journal to remember the magic. Enjoy delicious, nourishing meals for both body and spirit. Allow enchantment to carve deep roads of splendor in your soul and break open the door to your creative joy, so that you may find more fulfillment and exuberance in everything you do.
We happily invite all skill-levels of artists to join us! Beginners welcome!

Hello, fellow wonder-seekers!
I’m Amy Won: artist, author, and nature-lover.
Once upon a time, my burned-out creative heart found her way to a magical retreat far away from home that forever changed the way I make and experience the world. When I returned home, I embraced my inner child and never looked back.
I learned that wonder transforms us. It makes us come alive, sparks creativity, and reconnects us to a world more beautiful than we can ever know. What followed the retreat was a labyrinthine creative journey beyond my imagination: a sold-out Deck of Wonder-Walking cards, two illustrated books (An Explorer’s Journal of Wonder-Walking and A Magical Night Journey), and creativity courses straight from the soul. Nature became my muse and I found a language of enchantment all my own.
Along the way I discovered that nurturing my sense of wonder is a lifelong endeavor, a skill that once learned can help us navigate life’s ups and downs more gracefully. I began inviting others to join me, as I believe that a world that lives in wonder is better cared-for and a happier, more harmonious place. I want to help create that.
Enchantment is the quickest way to spark creative magic.
Here’s what to look forward to in your enchanting Week of Wonder:
Unleash your inner child: Learn how to use the Deck of Wonder-Walking cards and companion guidebook to explore the beautiful retreat grounds and surrounding countryside with wide-eyed, childlike awe.
Play, express, remember: Have fun creating an exquisite, hand-crafted Wonder-Journal to write, paint, and sketch in during the retreat. This will also make a beautiful and meaningful memento to remember this magical experience.
Fun things: Identify your secret nooks and favorite hideaways during the retreat and make a hand-painted map of it to revisit on your own time for journaling, meditation, sketching, or painting. Learn my unique method of mood-painting and wonder-journaling to fill out your beautiful Wonder-Journal pages.
Nourishment: Expect delicious chef meals and daily creative play with me (2-3 hours), as well as beautiful field trips and lots of time to explore, create, and experience enchantment on your own.
Access: Pick my brain on my favorite ways to wander in wonder and build a creative explorer kit—learn my favorite travel supplies and accessories and how to customize them to your everyday life.
Bring home not only the enchanting memory of this magical retreat, but a treasure-trove of lifelong skills to apply to all your daily and future adventures.
Wander, capture, remember the magic.
