Do you want your creative mojo back? Join Edgewalkers' exciting Creativity Retreat in beautiful Margaret River this Autumn.

Are you committed to establishing & sustaining a creative practice? Do you want to explore what is getting in your way? Are you ready to identify & rehearse ways to richer more self-expressive life?.

Edgewalkers' signature 4-day retreat is a fun, fearless & focused examination of your self-expression and creativity. This is a delightful & powerful opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, disrupt routine thinking and find out just how creative you really are!

Designed & facilitated by creativity & transformative learning specialist, Dr Erika Jacobson, this program uses powerful aesthetic & embodied techniques, free writing, storytelling, photography & walking to help you:

    Here's what some people said:

    "Your concept of including guided forest & bushwalking experiences was spot on. The peaceful forest walks and breathtaking coastal scenery nearby were unforgettable; the walks provided an uplifting experience that reconnected me to nature. all to often forgotten or ignored in the city...the use of theatre was beneficial, it was challenging but significantly helped me to clarify some issues & see them better with input form the group ...Your retreat represents by far the most worthwhile & value for money contribution to my life for many years, all achieved in as little as three days. Truly of remarkable benefit." Ernie Samec, Lawyer, Perth

    "It is amazing to see how much I have been able to accomplish in such a short period of time with her influence and guidance. I look forward to future workshops with Erika and would recommend her services and workshops in a heartbeat! Thank you Erika for being just the right balance of intelligent, caring, and warm, yet still knowing how to draw our creativity out of us to be channelled in just the right way."Avi Melniker, Writer and Business Development Manager Sydney, NSW

    "Many thanks for the wonderful retreat. I didn't really know what to expect, I had never done anything like this before, but with Erika's expert guidance (as well as great accommodation and excellent food) the whole thing helped me step outside of my comfort zone, break old habits and rediscover the joy of life. Best wishes, keep up the good work."Evelyn Amos, Vasse, Western Australia
