Creativity = mind at ease + body in balance + open heart
Calling all entrepreneurs, creators, yogis, change-makers, dreamers and doers!
Close your eyes.
Imagine a better you. Imagine a better world.
Now open your eyes. We’re here to help you realize it.
Join Amy Soucy and Scott Tillitt for a unique, profound way to explore the creative process by combining awareness-based practices with strategic visioning exercises and community-building.
An intimate retreat in an inspiring setting to open your mind, body, and heart to fresh possibilities.
We’ll move, we’ll play, we’ll envision and connect through a transformative afternoon of:
- yoga and meditation
- visioning exercises and mapping
- mindful nature walk
- supportive group discussions and sharing
You know what yoga is — but visioning? It’s a vogue-ish high-level exercise in business, urban planning, nonprofits… anywhere where thinking strategically about future direction is helpful.
We’ll use it for our own creative endeavors, whatever they may be. To help create a clear picture of life goals and deepest dreams, personally and professionally.
Stay and explore Beacon in the verdant Hudson Valley. We’ll provide lodging options and suggestions of things to do. The fall foliage should be peaking, so you can do some peeping.
These workshops gather creators of all stripes: social entrepreneurs, activists, nonprofit leaders, organizers, artists, educators and anyone willing to stand in the fires of change in order to create a better way for themselves and a better world for others.

Resonant Heart Yoga
A yogi, seeker, creative spirit, and devout student of the mind-body connection, Amy is a New York-based instructor known for her expressive and authentic approach to the art of awareness. With extensive training in both the Integral and Anusara methods of hatha yoga, Amy offers her skills to a diverse range of students in a variety of settings. As a performing singer/songwriter, Amy is passionate about using the practice of yoga to support and illuminate the creative process. Yoga for Creators aims, through awareness and exploration, to help creative humans (all of us) develop and nurture a thriving relationship to their own ever-unfolding process.
Equal parts strategist, publicist, marketer, social entrepreneur, nonprofit leader and writer, Scott has an insatiable interest in big ideas and the behaviors that drive people, what resonates with them, and how to communicate with them. He’s followed his bliss for years and has used visioning exercises to help bring clarity to his own path and others. Some years ago, he broke the trance of an increasingly cynical consumer culture and started applying his corporate skills to social impact. He also has a strong meditation practice, which keeps him centered and positive and his mind agile and creative (relatively speaking).
