Imagine waking up excited for the day, healthy, energized, and connected to your true self and purpose.
Sometimes life can get hectic and mundane, allowing us to lose our health, vision for life, and creative spark. It can be easy to lose these pieces of ourselves in such a fast paced, modern day culture that squashes creativity, diminishes individual expression, and chooses unhealthy lifestyle choices for the sake of convenience.
Our goal at Rising Retreats is to bring you back into alignment with your optimal health, connect to your inner child where deeper answers can be found, and inspire you to take action in your life.
You will be guided through creative art activities, adventure, meditation, movement, and health education for you to up-level your confidence in making choices around nutrition and other holistic lifestyle habits.
During your time at Rising Retreats, you will experience rejuvenation of your mind, body, and spirit. You will leave feeling the most optimized version of yourself, with practical steps to continue thriving in your daily life that will give you more energy, mental clarity, and zest for life.

Taylor Victoria is a full time artist specializing in large scale mural projects and canvas artwork. Her work can be found nationally on the sides of commercial buildings, within private residences, in yoga studios, restaurants, schools, airbnbs, and more. Taylor’s creative drive & advanced artistic abilities began at a very young age and brought recognition from family, peers, and teachers.
At 19 years old, Taylor went through a dark and difficult time. She persevered and did what she knew to do: pick up her pen and paper and draw through the pain. Her designs turned her pain into purpose and she began to recognize her creative spirit is the well she draws from in order to continually nourish and sustain her uniquely individual spirit.
Taylor believes with every fiber of her being that we are all creative beings and that there is a need to nourish this part of ourselves. Taylor feels blessed to have made art her full time positioning in this life.
However, one does not need to identify as an artist in order to tap into the benefits expressed creativity offers. Taylor is eager to share the techniques and practices she uses to keep her creative spirit alive. These practices have been the vehicle that has allowed her to create at the scale and consistency that she does.
Whether you are a mathematician, an astronaut (anything is possible), teacher, or someone down to just get jiggy wit it.. Taylor believes these offerings have the potential to enrich your experience within yourself and the way you express outwardly.
Come tap into your creative nature and see how your life’s canvas transforms!
