Hello! I’m Bronwyn. I’m an artist, writer, dancer, and teacher. At the center of my creative life are circles of women. My soul’s work happens here. I’ve been facilitating women’s circles for thirty years, and leading women’s retreats for nearly twenty. Over and over again, I have witnessed the life-changing power of groups of women […]
Hacienda Mosaico is a small, private artist’s retreat in a safe, charming, quiet neighborhood of old Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Hacienda, guest cottage, and art studios are set in their own private, lush, expansive walled garden. The entire property is adorned with mosaic statues, fountains and other artful touches. Secluded garden rooms with hammocks and […]

Artful Living Retreats with Bronwyn are unique retreats for soulful women. We make art, we dance and breathe and meditate - we also explore ourselves and our self-care needs, ask some hard questions, and go home with a few more answers than we had before. This is my heart-work, and along with abundant love, I bring practical wisdom and mastery. The work I do in these powerful women's gatherings is a synthesis of all my creative and soul-work over the last thirty years with my extensive experience in women's leadership. These journeys are the real deal. If you are considering a retreat this year, this may be the one. It's a high value, highest quality retreat for grown-up women who know and love themselves and are willing to invest in nurturing themselves at the highest level.
Bronwyn brings light, love and beauty with her presence and her workshop. Her insights, support, experience and wisdom have enriched me in just the one week I was blessed to spend with her in Mexico. This was not my first experience in women’s retreats and I hold it up as an example of what is possible at their highest level. I was inspired and given practical tools to grow in my creativity, body, heart, and spiritual life. This will not be my last retreat with her and I look forward to an ongoing journey with her!

I found Bronwyn to be a gentle inspiring creative leader sharing her love of dance, meditation, art and self-expression. I found my fear of learning new things drop away as I experienced the teacher giving the message of “there are no mistakes, only variations!” I would love to participate in another retreat led by Bronwyn.

When it was all over we’d each had a good taste of what it was like to feel nourished, whole, and happy. We’d danced, played, created, meditated, ate, and dreamed. We’d set specific commitments/intentions for do-able actions for our physical, mental, spiritual well-being. The retreat was long enough that I was able to go deeper into my meditation practice and also able to finish a couple of art projects. In the end, a reminder that often self-care for me, means giving that precious gift of time to me. Thanks for sharing the magic, Bronwyn!
