Art Therapy + Island Escape = Bliss
Juliette Kalifa is an experienced Art therapist and counsellor who
is passionate about her work. In October she is offering a chance to reflect on your life away from the stresses of ordinary routine in a natural setting. This is an opportunity to dedicate an entire weekend to review your life, to get different perspectives, to reflect on commitments and priorities and to consider what is meaningful to you; an opportunity to be creative with it, and to connect with others in a supportive group environment.

The workshop title "Taking Time to Pause and Consider" says it all. Most of us rush about making vague promises about smelling the roses or having a weekend off but somehow it never happens.

Take this opportunity to relax on Coochiemudlo Island - an oasis just an hour from the CBD - and consider where you are in your life and more importantly ... where you would like to be.

Can't draw or paint? Don't worry. This isn't about creating masterpieces but is all about expressing spontaneously. The activities and processes are designed to help you make life more meaningful as you release patterns that no longer serve you.

All materials, meals and linen are provided. All you need to bring are clothes and toiletries.

Close to the beach and a Melaluca forest, you can find peace and healing in nature in between sessions.

"My intention for this weekend is to use the arts to express how your life is and how you might like it to be. No skills in the arts are required. Group discussions, tasty and healthy food, plus meaningful conversations can create memorable experiences. " explains Juliette.
