The schedule below outlines the various activities and offerings that are included on this retreat. The sequence of these events will be created to support the flow and delivery of the offerings.


Many of you will arrive at Sugar Beach sometime on Sunday afternoon. You’ll have a chance to settle in, swim in the pool, play in the ocean and soak up the beauty of your environment before you indulge in a delectable dinner. After dinner, we’ll have a general introduction to the retreat and an opportunity for participants to begin to get acquainted with each other.

Each morning you may choose to join a Meditation and Yoga session and/or you may take an early morning walk on the beach before having a delicious breakfast in the open-air restaurant. There are vibrant sun-rises in this area and as the ocean and land critters awaken you can feel the energy of life all around you.

Below, you will see the general schedule for the entire week. You will have lots of time to learn amazing  art lessons, tips and practical information from Robbie that you can use to enhance your artistic skills and ability and you will also have time for exciting adventures, playful activities, sharing time with others and time to relax and absorb the beauty of this splendid tropical paradise. Robbie will be with us for the entire retreat.
