Why go on a retreat?
You may feel the time is right to bring more creativity into your life.
You may long to discover the artist within you.
You might be wanting to find a way to creatively celebrate or mark a specific event or transition in your life.
Or maybe you are feeling overwhelmed or exhausted and in need of some "you" time.
What is special about this retreat?
No matter how little - or much - experience you have of art or ceremony I can offer you a bespoke creative retreat to support your creative unfolding.
I use stillness, movement, breath, time in nature, visualisation, collage and other creative exercises to help you find the appropriate direction for your creativity.
"Ceremony" can include the creation of a journal, a shrine, a quilt, wall-hanging or piece of environmental art, or simply an act of celebration. Media used in artworks varies from paint, pastel and paper collage to felt, stitch, fabric and found natural materials. Where specific ceremony or celebrations are created we will often also use words, music and movement.
As the retreat is "bespoke", you can do as many or as few activities as you like....and intersperse them with plenty of quiet solitude, nurturing treatments, yoga classes and wild walks.
Cornwall’s most stunning beaches, coves, cliffs and windswept moorland, ancient stone circles, standing stones and sacred wells are all within a few minutes’ walk or drive.
Out of season you can walk for miles without seeing a soul....you can have a whole beach to yourself....you can dance in the wind or sing to the sea with no one watching!! And at night the stars are breathtaking. This is a wonderful place to unwind, to recuperate, to dream and to soul-search.
