Awaken Your Creative Self
Thursday 2nd - Monday 6th June 2022
“Expressing ourselves is a form of inner breathing, like sunlight emanating from within, that inspires the soul to blossom.”
Creativity is innate within us all, however maybe you weren't encouraged or never found the time to nurture this part of yourself, be that in the form of story-telling, poetry, song, singing, movement, ecstatic dance, drawing or painting...
This is your opportunity to create space in your life to deeply nourish yourself and gain a deeper connection to your expression in a way that will build your confidence, empower you and support your emotional wellbeing.
This five-day retreat is grounded in the practices of qi gong, yoga, dance, song, and sound meditations, 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 our creative self.
We will focus on the following practices in order to connect to this creative life force within:
Sound meditations (sound baths), as well as exploring or rediscovering the healing and soothing nature of our own authentic singing voices through toning, mantra, gentle song, harmony & improvisation.
Creative Expression Workshops
Storytelling, drawing, poetry, song, fire-side drumming.
Qi gong, yoga and dance.
guided meditation to help you to connect deeply within to your authentic self.

All are welcome to this retreat. NO prior experience is needed. This retreat has been designed to be accessible to all and to nourish the creative expression within us.
Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi said during his seminal TED talk in 2004, "When we are involved in creativity, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.
