Create Your Life 2021 Virtual Painting Retreat

Do you want 2021 to be a year full of magic, adventure and Divine guidance?

Here’s how…

Let’s face it 2020 was really hard especially for us highly sensitive people. Now it’s time to push the reset button. 2021 can be your year to finally unleash your personal magic, manifest a life that feels like a wonderful adventure, and create a consistent flow of Divine guidance.

I created this one day virtual retreat to help you do all these things and more in the most fun way possible.

I will guide you with prayer, ritual, powerful questions and creative exercises to help you get clear on your goals and the path to achieve them. I will also lead you in painting an angel vision board for 2021.

If you’re not familiar with what a vision board is, it’s a collection of images and words that represent what you want to be, do or have in your life.

Creating a vision board helps you get really clear on what is important to you, where you really want to go and what your most sacred dreams for 2021 are.

Imagine having your own personal angel vision board looking over your shoulder ready to guide you, inspire you and help you manifest the life of your dreams.

This isn’t just a vision board you’re creating; It’s a way to remember that your dreams & heart’s desires matter.
It’s a visual prayer.
It’s the freedom to dream.
It’s a way to tune into what your soul might have to say about your goals for 2021.

Your angel vision board will remind you that you are not alone and your angels want to help you make your dreams come true as much as you want them to come true.

Join me online for a virtual art retreat where you will explore your goals and intentions for 2021 & receive messages from your Spirit Guides and Angels about the year ahead while painting a beautiful vision board that looks like an angelNo previous art experience necessary.

Saturday, January 30, 2021 10 am – 2 pm MT

I was able to bring in some clarity to a couple of goals that I have been working on.

Thank you Dana for such an amazing experience at your angel retreat.  I was able to bring in some clarity to a couple of goals that I have been working on.

I think my favorite part of the day was interpreting the card.  It seemed to speak to me and was a myriad of images that all somehow matched the path that I am on.  It brought clarity and assurance that I was on the right path and that I need to just keep going.

I love my painting and have it placed on my bedroom wall in front of my bed.  That means that as I lay down to sleep and as I wake up, this is the image I end and start my day with.  For me, my painting means Trust. And that trust I place with my angels to keep me on track and that they are there for me.  When I went through my surgery after the retreat- that painting was a huge source of support.   I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thank you for that!! I look forward to working with you again!

See it. Dream it. Be it.


  • A rich and meaningful day where you discover what your heart longs for in 2021 so you have the clarity to focus on what you want to manifest
  • Gentle, loving conversations that help you tune into your soul and uncover your blocks so you don’t stay stuck
  • Powerful questions that help you tune out the noise and get in touch with how you really feel and what you really need to move forward
  • A fun, safe atmosphere where it’s perfectly fine to have never picked up a paintbrush or created a vision board before because your inner artist is probably ready to play after last year
  • A MAP treatment to clear subconscious blocks that are standing between you and your dreams to make sure that there’s nothing standing in your way and things that used to hold you back are easily dissolved
  • Time to reorient, revision, reset and plug back into your inner wisdom and Divine guidance so you always know what the right next step is for you

The healing I’ve experienced is deeply profound.

I’ve been doing Map sessions with Dana for the past 4 months and the healing I’ve experienced is deeply profound.  For years, I’ve struggled with the after effects of multiple traumas.  Some of the layers I was able to work through with traditional therapy but some parts just always felt stuck.  It was so discouraging to have what felt like programmed responses, triggers and sometimes paralyzing fears lodged in my body and reactions, taking over my experience of life.  I also felt a disconnect with myself, like there was a part of me that wasn’t within my reach.  My body didn’t always feel safe or like it was my home.  I was more than ready for this healing and dove in with open mind and open heart.

Dana’s warmth, compassion and intuition along with this incredible work has cleared so much of it… and gently… safely… without re-traumatizing.  I have witnessed the layers working their way through my memory, but with different responses from me.  My intuition has deepened and I’m embracing how it speaks to me and seeing my gifts.  I feel like I’m stepping into myself ~ my power ~ and my connection with spirit and energy has expanded .  A tight grip that has lived in my body for years has dissolved.  I feel different.  * Embodied *  Like I’m moving into a new chapter of my life.  I am beyond grateful for the shifts that have happened and I would highly recommend this work.

  • You are a wise woman who isn’t afraid to explore soulful questions
  • You are ready to let go of what you no longer need and call into your life more of what you really want
  • You are an adventurous woman who doesn’t mind trying something new and isn’t afraid of letting her inner five year old come out and play and create
  • You’d LOVE to put your dreams on a vision board that looks prettier than the sticky old cardboard and glue versions

There is both a painting and collage process involved to create your angel vision board which makes this retreat perfect for both the artist and the woman who is newer to painting but is comfortable pushing herself to paint simple facial features.

I’ll take you through an oh-so-easy step-by-step process to create your own angel vision board painting.

I’ve created this process in a way that is good for those of you who are in touch with your inner artist as well as for those of you who are just getting to know her.

This is an Angel Vision Board a woman made to keep her dreams to travel close to her heart. Isn’t it pretty?Join Dana da Ponte ( in Redwood Meadows, a storybook town located 5 minutes from Bragg Creek, Alberta for a full-day spiritual art retreat where you will get clear about your dreams and your soul’s calling while creating a beautiful vision board that looks like an angel. No previous art experience necessary.

At first, she was hesitant to devote her Angel Vision Board to her dreams of travelling because there seemed to be significant obstacles in the way of that dream coming true. But each of us at the retreat agreed that was exactly the reason why her Angel Vision Board needed to be about traveling. Her precious dreams to see the world were important and deserved her focus and attention. Even if life prevented her dreams from happening right away, creating such a beautiful angel to hold them for her will remind her that her dreams to travel are important to her and don’t deserve to be ignored or set aside forever.


After the retreat, you too will have an artistic representation that captures the dreams and magic you hold inside your heart.

What happens next is hopefully even better than you imagined it to be.

I just kept hitting an invisible wall.

When I came to see Dana I was hitting a wall. All the self-help I did on myself, all the layers I let go, all the journaling and being with myself and still I couldn’t get past the wall I kept hitting.

I used to think, “Am I ever going to quit crying? Am I ever going to stand up for myself? Are things ever going to change? Why can I not get better? Twenty years into this self-help shit.  I should be the guru by now but I’m still feeling stuck. I just keep hitting a wall.”

Three months working with Dana and I feel like a different person.

One of the things I learned from working with Dana was how much my wounded inner child was affecting my relationships. She was the one that got out of the marriages thinking, “I’m outa here”. She was the one who lived through poverty and was stuck still thinking I was poor.

We started removing all the blocks that I hadn’t even realized were the cause of the pain I was experiencing in my life.

Getting my confidence back and standing up for myself has been HUGE! My experience with anxiety is night and day. I didn’t even realize how worked up I was in the past because it was my everyday experience. I didn’t even know I could be this calm. I feel like a different person. Now when I get worked up I don’t enjoy it.

The work we did with the mother-daughter relationship was also amazing. I didn’t realize how much that relationship affected me but it was so important. I learned how to give myself what I was missing. I now imagine my inner child is safe with my inner mother. I see my higher self and she’s tall. I feel more powerful. I know I’m important now. I’m doing things even though I’m scared.  I feel more relaxed in my love relationship now. I feel like a different woman.

I also didn’t know the trauma I experienced was affecting me so much but it really was. It felt like I was fighting something that was invisible but it was just my trauma.

I am so shocked about how much I learned about myself. Sometimes I’d leave my session with Dana and not remember driving home because I was so in awe of what had happened. It was just so powerful.

I’d recommend Dana's work to anyone who feels like they can’t just seem to fix what feels broken in their lives no matter how much self-help they’ve tried and to anyone who wants to work with their subconscious mind but doesn’t feel safe getting hypnotized. I never felt safe getting hypnotized because of the trauma I endured but working with MAP was easy and safe.
