(24-30 October 2022 - Sciacca, Sicily)
This retreat is designed to help you to reconnect to your values, your inner power and your authentic self.
Through a variety of playful, creative methods and body work you will explore the you that matters and anything holding you back. This is an exclusive and small group retreat. There are a maximum of 9 places available.
Sicily is a place close to my heart, having gone on my first yoga retreat there many years ago and returning for a solo holiday in 2018. The sea, the food and the hospitality are second to none.
Here are a few images to give you a feel for our retreat...
This is not therapy, although it will be therapeutic. We will all come with our own strengths and difficulties and take from this time what it is we need.
Combined creative arts (movement, art and written word)
Connections to nature
Embodiment (breath and body work to ground into your body)
Integrating the five senses
In addition to the daily wellness program, we will be exploring the local area and you will have time to swim in the sea or play in the sand, since our accommodation is right on the beach!
The accommodation and hosting is by friends of mine in Sicily. They will ensure we have everything we need, and I will ensure that you are revived, reconnected and ready to tackle anything in this life you want to.
We will be staying in wooden homes next to each other and directly on the breath-taking beach!
Private access to the beach is from the back yard. There are various chill out areas to relax and a lounge, kitchen and bathrooms. I have ensured there is plenty of space for us all to take time to relax with or without others. See pictures for more of an idea!

Accommodation right on the beach (private access!) with kitchen, spaces to relax and terraces
Daily program of Creative Connections on the beach/terrace
