After spending four months in Ghana, I made a commitment to my Self to spend every winter in the sun! Why be in the cold when you can be in the warmth?
The ‘lights out’ situation in Ghana was the main reason I decided not to return next winter; not long after returning to England I got an email from an old friend who subsequently offered me the opportunity to run my Creativity Workshops at his Academy in Grenada, so I’m in the process of putting together Poetry and Art Workshops, as well as Retreats!
The Poetry and Art Workshops will run regularly from November 2015 to May 2016 and will include the Grenadian locals, however if you are planning a holiday abroad, maybe you’ll consider joining me at one of them? This will be a time for you to release your creative flair and let your Self go! Do you have trouble expressing your deepest feelings? Have you experienced trauma which you’ve not shared with anyone before? Use the healing tools of creative writing and art to heal your Self! Or would you just like to create something really special for a loved one? How about creating a special personalised card with your own artwork and poetry? I will also be explaining how I used Colour Therapy in my art to heal myself, and showing you how you can do the same.
The Retreats will be held next March (2016), and will be for 10 days each (one mixed, one women only). The first Retreat is entitled ‘Self Healing through Forgiveness‘ and focuses on using writing as a form of releasing un-forgiveness which can cause all sorts of physical and psychological effects in the body. Forgiveness is always about YOU, not the other person! The second Retreat is called ‘Awakening Your Inner Child’ and is for anyone who desires to get creative again. Perhaps you were very creative as a child, but your job or commitments don’t allow you the time to express your Self creatively? Join me for a fun and fulfilling 10 days in the sun where we will unleash your inner child! (Read The Story of My Inner Child)
I’ll tell you more about them in my next blog post, however if you’re interested in joining me for either the Poetry & Art Workshops or a Retreat, message me using the contact form below! (easy monthly payments for the Retreats are available)
