Nourished by Creativity
Wednesday 1st - Sunday 5th July 2020
The benefits of creative expression are not confined to any particular age, however many are not given the opportunity to be artistic as they move into adulthood. These workshops & retreats are a way for young and old alike to explore and express the creativity that is innate within us all.
Held at Avalon Wellbeing Centre, surrounded by breathtaking nature, we use movement, sound and guided visualisation techniques to explore the creation of space within. We learn simple techniques to draw forth that which lies in wait. It maybe a painting, a story, a performance, poem or even a song...
We then delve deeper into refining the process, whilst also introducing confidence building tools that empower the individual to feel safe enough to share what they have created.
“Expressing ourself is a form of inner breathing, like sunlight emanating from within, that inspires the soul to blossom.” Mark Nepo
This four day retreat is grounded in the practices of qi gong, yoga & sound, to support the cultivation of embodied heartfelt perception. This shift in focus from the mind to the heart is the focal point from which we can all connect to reveal our creative self.
During this retreat we focus on three main areas of expression, in order to connect to the creative life force within:
Sound as a modality for both meditation (toning & mantra) as well as playful expression through song, harmony & improvisation.
Creative Writing - storytelling, poetry or songwriting depending on the individual.
Movement - Qi Gong, Yoga & Dance.
All are welcome to this retreat.
NO prior experience is needed. As this retreat has been designed to be accessible to all and to nourish the creative expression within us.
