The West

Come join Lauren to explore your heart and imagination openly in a safe and caring environment, all while creating art, memories and friendships.


 Next retreat TBD

From Friday @5pm to Sunday @3pm



The Valley Centre in the gorgeous countryside outside of Red Deer, Alberta (directions will be provided with registration).

Valley Centre


 There are no accommodations but for those travelling from out of town, there is an opportunity to stay with Lauren free of charge.  Spots are based on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.  Should you not be one of the lucky ones, there are, however, plenty of accommodations in Red Deer and we would be happy to provide you with recommendations.  All meals, snacks and beverages are included with tuition.

There is no airport in Red Deer but you can fly into the Calgary or Edmonton airports which are a little over an hour away.  Airport pick-up can be arranged for an added cost.


 Typical Canadian weather can be unpredictable but  May should be warming as Spring will be in the air and summer just around the corner.  A medium weight jacket and layers are always a good idea.
