Meet your Retreat Host

Hey there! My name is Ayesis (sounds like “Isis”) Clay and I’m a distinguished educator, multidisciplinary theatre artist, and keynote speaker.

In 2018, I wrote an autobiographical solo show, exploring my 17-year journey as a classroom teacher, dealing with compassion fatigue, burnout, and JOY as a result of those experiences.

That solo show has been featured as the opening keynote for the Educational Theatre Association’s 2022 National conference in Los Angeles and on stage at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. 

Using the writing process to explore my story helped to renew my passion for education and heal from the traumas I faced–sharing that story has brought a sense of EMPOWERMENT I never expected!

And now I can’t wait to help you on your own journey to healing, renewal, and JOY!
