A wonderful, loving gift to yourself

Are you ready to jump into a thriving, exciting and more creative life in 2020?

Do you want to reconnect to nature, hang out with like-minded people and have time out just for YOU?

Are you ready to get your creative mojo back?

Then this retreat is for you.

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 the magic of the stunning southwest, disrupt routine thinking and find out just how creative you really are! Whether it be expanding your dessert-making skills, creating an online business, or finally putting some colour on those blank canvases or words on those blank pages.

Designed & facilitated by creativity & transformative learning specialist, Dr Erika Jacobson, the workshop process is playful, fun and goes as deep as you want to take it - whether you share your heart out or listen with an open mind, you will take something home that you can put into action.

Using a range of powerful aesthetic & embodied techniques, the workshop process will help you:

  • identify obstacles & paralysing mindsets that are keeping you from being creative.

  • explore and rehearse ways to overcome these creative blocks.

  • establish a regular and sustainable creative 'habit.

  • reconnect & be inspired by nature in one of Australia's most beautiful coastal walks.

    AND, you will:

  • spend joyful, quality time & create longterm friendships with like-minded individuals.

  • play, write, paint, sing, dance and walk.

  • stay in deluxe accommodation.

  • be nourished with healthy & nutritious meals and snacks.

  • leave the retreat feeling powerful & purposeful about the role of creativity in your life!

    As part of the experience, you will also work with a special guest artist . View the complete itinerary here.

    Limited places are available and early bookings are highly recommended. The price is from $1380 pp and includes:

  • 4 days of focused creative exploration through theatre, visualisations, writing, storytelling, movement & play with Dr. Erika Jacobson - you will take home a four-week plan of action so that you can sustain your motivation and direction after the retreat.

  • 3 nights in truly deluxe accommodation no matter what room-type you are in. From the wall to wall windows that let you feel completely immersed in nature, to the modern bathrooms & furnishings, the spaciousness and the light, this home will support and nurture your process.

  • Exquisite & nutritious vegetarian, mostly organic meals and snacks for the duration of the retreat - catered locally, our food is abundant and life-affirming.

  • 3 guided walks (5 - 12 km) on the stunning Cape to Cape coastal track and forest settings - feel truly immersed in nature during these spectacular walks.

  • 3 hour painting workshop with local special guest artist Megan Hodgson.

    " You weekend was a real treat for heart and soul- I left feeling more determined fulfil my dreams. I have weaved art into my every day and have booked a solo trip to the Galapagos next month! This is living creatively!" SUZANNE STRAPP - BUSSELTON

    "... the perfect mix of the familiar and the new. Erika Jacobson, our guide and mentor, delivered on every promise in the brochure and some. The program was original, energising, fun, and restorative. Each participant was able to create and follow their own unique creative journey." CLARE ALDERSON - PERTH

    " Spending time with Erika exploring what is blocking us from exploring our creative passion and giving ourselves permission to do this was inspiring and motivating. Walking on the Cape to Cape each day allowed time for freeing the mind and being in the moment. I came home with an open heart, a plan going forward and a sense of believing that I deserve to give myself creative time each day. I am worthy of this for my own wellbeing. Thanks so much." CHRISTINE SKEGGS - BUNBURY


    "Thanks Erika for being a wonderful facilitator and creating a space for us to be creative! I attended the 4 day creativity retreat with Erika in Sep 2019. A brilliant time with a group of amazing women! A mix of writing, yoga, painting, walking and great food - what's not to love. The most surprising part was the group work and theatre style improvisation activities that we did throughout the retreat. I gained real insight into the blockages we're creating for ourselves that stop us from continuing our path to ongoing creativity." MILICA MILENKOVIC - NEW ZEALAND
