Rise Foundation is a unique, non-profit organization, providing retreats for artists, scientists, and
all creative seekers. Purpose of the retreats
is to offer a guidance and support to unfunded, creative people of all ages from around the globe. When they need to strengthen their voice of inspiration, increase motivation, or unblock
their creative flow they can come for our fully, or partially paid by the foundation retreat, and return to their work with recharged energy and a new purpose. Artists often need an aware witness to clarify their insight,
an educated healer to encourage their self-healing, or a wise presence of another to find a new direction. This
is the main reason for creating our Foundation. Another reason is to utilize a unique set of my skills, where my education in fine art and psychology, the experiences in and outside of my 40 years of psychotherapy practice of assisting people in their creative evolution, come together. My teachings are rooted in love and wisdom granting me a strong
and open presence. They are based on experiences
of guiding others, self-examination, and
continuous education giving me a solid awareness in the world of instability, which in itself is a rarity.
European upbringing, combined with pursuing an education in art, marked the importance of artistic expression in raising my
children; now all three are successful writers, musicians, and performers. Creative people often question the
point of their work, especially when external and immediate rewards are missing. At that time, they search for
a view from a greater perspective, where the purpose of their work becomes clear, because it fits in the big picture of social
and personal meaningfulness.
this work is so needed, and yet, most of the creative people are underpaid and have no funds to come for a retreat.
With the arts and creativity being nearly eradicated from school programs in North America and the many other parts
of the world, it is essential now to invest in the most human expression – creativity.
we are not humans and most of the time in learning institutions and workplaces creativity is not reinforced, supported and
