EmpowerHer:Art & Soul Getaway

In our fast-paced world, it can be challenging to prioritize self-care and nourish our creative spirit. That's where our Creative Retreats come in. Here, you will find a safe and nurturing environment where you can replenish your energy, explore new artistic avenues, and uncover the beauty within.

At our retreats, we believe in the power of expression through art. Our carefully curated programs are designed to help you tap into your creativity and use it as a tool for self-exploration and self-expression. Whether you're an experienced artist or have never picked up a paintbrush before, our inclusive approach welcomes all skill levels and backgrounds. You can use your NDIS funding

Tap into your creativity and build a stronger, more empowered YOU

Need some creative self care ?

You’re exhausted, burnt out, and overwhelmed. Every day you struggle over mountains created by your doubts, worries, and guilt. Even though you ignore your own needs and spend too much time catering to those around you, it feels like you’re never doing enough.

Does all of this sound familiar?

It’s time to commit to your own well-being.

At the Creative Wellness Retreat, you’ll discover how to:

* Make the changes that you need to be happy and healthy.
* Overcome limiting beliefs that hold you back from living a truly authentic life.
* Empower yourself with true self-acceptance so that you can be more open, honest and whole.
* Lead yourself through imposter syndrome so that you can start showing up for yourself and taking worthwhile risks in life.
* Build strong, loving self-worth so that you can show yourself love and compassion.

Discover the small, simple actions that will cut through those mountains and bring calm and ease to your days.

Creativity for your Wellbeing

Throughout your stay, you will be guided by a team of compassionate professionals who are dedicated to supporting your emotional well-being. Together, we will embark on a journey, weaving together mindfulness practices, connection, rest and artistic exploration. Our goal is to provide you with the tools and space to heal, gain clarity, and embrace the joy of creation.

But our retreats are not just about art; they are also a sanctuary for your soul. Surrounded by serene natural landscapes and like-minded women, you will find moments of reflection, connection, and inspiration. Each retreat is intentionally crafted to create an atmosphere where you can let go of everyday worries and allow your true self to emerge.

Don’t see yourself as a creative person? Look again!

Creativity isn’t about making masterpieces. It’s about getting back in touch with your instincts. Creating allows you to find purpose and direction through self-reflection, self-discovery, and inner guidance.

The art you create at this retreat doesn’t need to look beautiful – though you may be surprised at what you’re capable of! It’s about the process of making it. The journey of expressing yourself in a calming, peaceful, and accepting space.

That’s where true transformation happens.

Transform your mindset and discover the self-care routine you need.

🎨 Reset the daily habits that have been holding you back. 

🎨 Uncover the blocks that are limiting your health and happiness.

🎨 Learn how to ground yourself in the moment, no matter what life throws at you.

🎨 It’s time to give yourself the power to release stress and anxiety whenever it appears in your life.

The benefits of our Creative Retreats extend far beyond your time here. Long after you leave our haven, you will carry with you newfound confidence, a deeper understanding of your inner self, and the ability to infuse creativity into your daily life. Our hope is that you will continue to nourish your creative soul, allowing it to guide you toward a more fulfilled and authentic life.

Hey there I'm sally

When I’m not off painting rainbows with my kids and getting stuck in glitter, paint and clay, I’m an experienced and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Sensorimotor Art Therapist who works with children, adolescents, women, and families. I help people who experience difficulties managing the demands of day-to-day life, including the impacts of depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma and relationship problems.

On a personal level, being creative has changed my life and opened me up to divine insight about myself. It allows me to express my inner world and helps me to integrate it into my outer world.

Through creative expression I have been able to heal old wounds, free myself from past worries, and open my heart to truly knowing, understanding and loving myself for who I am. This has allowed me to open my heart and invite new things to come my way. 

It has been a life long DREAM to host a creative retreat and I’m so pleased I now share this passion with you.

 

Here’s other creative women have said about my Creative Workshops…

Creative Lady

Such a great idea to reflect on self, focus on needs and wants, and uncover what I need more of in life, in a creative format. The workshops were well presented, gave plenty of time for reflection, and were a relaxing way to connect with others.

Peaceful Women

The workshop helped me let go of some of the anger and sit more peacefully in my situation. To find the time to explore oneself should be easy. Bit it hasn’t. These workshops have let me grant myself permission to spend time with myself, to look within. Thank you for providing this space for me.

Relaxed Lady

I really enjoyed this workshop, Sally is a lovely facilitator, who holds space for everyone in the group. Really enjoyed each topic & creative expression that aligned.

Feeling Great Women

Sally's workshop was a brilliant way to learn about how you're feeling and what that may look like for you. It was great to incorporate art with other modalities like music and writing. If you struggle with just writing about how you're feeling, I would highly recommend that you give this course a go - you'll be surprised at how great you feel.

Courageous Lady

This workshop really helped me let go of some unhelpful thoughts and emotions. Sally and the other participants were respectful and supportive and I had a lot of fun going through what may have otherwise been a difficult process.
