There is a meaningful and real connection between the creative and therapeutic processes. Expressing ourselves through art and exploring our creative voices offers us a respite from the mundanity of our everyday lives; a thing which is vital to the healing and restoration processes which we need to allow ourselves growth.

The goal of the Art Retreat is to create a space where you can allow yourself to step back from the world for a while, and express yourself in an unconditional setting. For those with art experience, this is a wonderful way to reconnect... with art, with yourself, and with those sharing this journey. A full PDF can be downloaded by clicking HERE

This journey will include:

Painting workshops by Sander Mahieu Sander is a Netherlands born artist, who has worn the shoes of many. From humanitarian to Human Resources manager, he has truly traversed the tides of life, but has always used art as his inspiration. Now, he chooses to settle in South Africa and commit solely to exploring his creative voice through painting.

Ocean swims and mountain hikes with Lindy Taverner Your hostess Lindy is excited to share with you her passion for the environment, both land and sea. She is the founder of RE Wild Food - offering nutritious and progressive food, incorporating edible seaweeds, wild plants and organic produce - striving to be sustainable, traceable, organic and low impact.

Yoga and meditation with Elaine Hackner Elaine qualified as a yoga teacher at Ananda Kutir in Cape Town in 1991. Her practice coordinates posture (asana) and breathing (pranayama) to anchor us in the present moment and nurture body and spirit. Focus is on renewal, restoration and connection - giving priority to the special needs of each individual. Through regular practice, we develop strength, flexibility and stamina. We become more in touch with deeper aspects of ourselves and better resourced to face daily challenges.

Catering by Aimee Baker Originally a restaurant trained chef, Aimee has since expanded her portfolio to include event catering with a focus on vegan dishes, amongst other sustainable menu options. Her flavourful dishes will leave your taste buds tingling and your heart yearning for more!
