This can happen through the question and answer process and in our honest answers to each others questions.
By the time people actually apply to come, they’re at the place where they know where they are going and why.
We get amazing applications from wonderful people, most of whom end up here.
You don’t need to be published or recognized, we just ask that people be earnest about their intention to come and focus on a passion.
Honestly, that comes through and we think if it’s not there (that passion, inspiration and intention), then a person simply wouldn’t bother reading through all our materials, nor would they be attracted to what we offer (our retreat guidelines, remote location, lack of neighboring cafes and bars, etc).
So, we are happy to say that our correspondence acts as an effective filter and that although we’d love to accept everyone for a retreat at La Muse this is not always the case!
