Find your treasure

Would you really like to express yourself creatively, but don’t know where to start?

Think you’re not creative?

You are!

I invite you to join me  on an exciting voyage of CREATIVE SELF DISCOVERY!

Through visualisation, music, spontaneous painting, drawing, mixed media collage, mandala’s and much more, you will learn to allow simple colour and imagery to flow through you without judgement or expectations.

By connecting with your innate creativity, you open up the channel to your soul’s wisdom and access the true potential which resides within you.  You will also find your inner artist and develop your own unique style.

This is “process driven” art, without attachment to the outcome. The more childlike you can be, the better, so therefore, absolutely no artistic experience is necessary.

Join me and a small group of fellow explorers on a ONE DAY WORKHOP or WEEKEND RETREAT and re-connect with YOU!

The theme changes each month, so sign up to our newsletter (only one email a week) – you will also get Astrology updates, creative projects and more

 “Michelle you offer shape-shifting magic to people. 

Your classes made huge shifts in me, which made it possible for me to move forward into whatever the universe had in store for me, and          so much more besides. It’s impossible to know the effect on each individual student you’ve had”.   HB 

“So many hopes and dreams in that paint have already been fulfilled and so much life ahead to fill. I see through these paintings the progress of me taking my life back and opening my heart to new possibilities and fun. Your input and the painting has helped me see and feel”   JB

SATURDAY 21ST AND SUNDAY 22ND SEPTEMBER – REST & DIGEST, GILLITTS, KZN

Join us as we prepare for the Spring Equinox, with a weekend of Colour, Creativity, Flowers, Music, Peaceful Natural  surroundings and Delicious Vegetarian food.

Over the weekend the Sun will spend  its final few days in Virgo, which is all about discerning what needs to be cleared and detoxing           MIND, BODY AND SOUL , in order to prepare for new growth  and change.

On the day of the Spring Equinox  (23rd September), as the Sun enters Libra, we day and night is of equal length all over the world – a  real balancing point between dark and light / death and rebirth / old and new. Trees and plants begin new cycles of growth, butterflies emerge, birds remember their songs and Mother Nature leads us into a new cycle of light, life and new beginnings. The Spring Equinox  encourages us to bring balance to our lives, by clearing out what no longer serves us and welcoming renewal – 

Join us and Spring Clean your Soul !

 

DAY ONE – SPONTANEOUS MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE

We will create a spontaneous mixed media collage, which will help to reveal what we need to clear out and  release,  in order to make way for the new.  

Spontaneous collage is an easy way to express yourself, with no need for specific drawing or painting skills. By allowing images to “pull” you and placing them together in an intuitive way, we are often able to access profound insights from our subconscious minds.

DAY TWO – INTUITIVE PAINTING 

On Sunday, we will celebrate our emergence into the light with a day of INTUITIVE PAINTING, which the theme RISE AND SHINE – NEW BEGINNINGS.

The process of working intuitively with colour, with no specific outcome in mind  will  activate your right brain, help you to raise your energy and the painting  itself will  serve as a  powerful trigger to keep you on track with your intentions. 

What is ready to be reborn in your life?

  FEEDBACK FROM FELLOW  EXPLORERS

You are an incredible facilitator. I was amazed at how skillfully you helped everyone to really “drop in” and connect with what they needed to process and get in touch with in order to move forward into this year … and then to also set actionable steps. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and also really felt like I connected with something at a very deep and subtle level. LW

I know that what I got from the workshop with you, I couldn’t have found any other way.  The inspired intention I now have is uplifting and inspiring. Thinking my way to this just isn’t possible. So powerful to step into a creative, open-hearted space and come away with so much.  Michelle you truly gifted!’  CS

 Loved the workshop!  felt like I had had a weekend away. Being creatively present all day is quite something when you really think about it, but there’s some expressional magic coming through that is so compelling – perhaps it’s like reading a story – one is held turning the pages of the book, to journey to the end of it, to see how it turns out. One never know what will come through on that piece of paper at the end, so there is magic and surprise in whatever materialises! Thanks again Michelle – never doubt you are doing such valuable work! LR 

I still remember walking into your cottage a broken person and you were so much part of my healing. In fact you were the start. What a process it has been. SH

I went to a few offered lessons -OMG were they awesome! This is healing art! I got so so much out of my month of lessons. She is one beautiful soul…..I hope to keep a friendship with her,as she is deep, uplifting and one of the most very special people I have come across. If u want spiritual healing and creativity fun, call me or private box her. Stunning woman- inside and out! I wish her everything good KSM

“The joy of being playful and creative without fear of censure was an unforgettable and inspiring experience. I left feeling light and happy and felt reconnected to my inner being. I am going to seriously take up visual journaling.   I hope to use visual journaling as a method in my self-study and hopeful that I could chat to you about this as I progress”.  SN

“I so enjoyed the course and am looking forward to using the knowledge gained at home, working at my own pace and when and as I want to. I feel I gained a lot, not only directly related to the course, but how to look, as my husband would say … ‘through the bush, not at it!’ Rosemary

HUGE heart-thank-you’s for an amazing day and spectacular workshops. My vision board is stuck on my en-suite bathroom door and I really drink it in first thing in the morning and also see it several times a day.  It fills me with such a sense of excitement and joy – the colours alone light  me up each time.

Thank you SO much for the workshop. I really feel that something has been unlocked and that the visual journalling was key in doing that.  I had a dream that same night and I sat up and tried to analyse or just see what it all meant…. it def had to do with things that came out of the journalling process. Its all quite wonderful. I feel like something has been lifted and I am embracing this sense of lightness and letting go  its like a wonderful little ball of wool unrolling and I can now stretch and be free! So thanks so much for being a part of this journey and for helping to unlock something in me.

these groups are relaxed and inspirational. You have to try one to “get it”. Seriously no art training necessary. Great fun and time to be creative, as Michelle gently guides the way into your own personal journey.” TC

I really enjoyed the workshop on Saturday. I continued to process stuff mentally over the weekend. It was a great form of expressing what’s in our inner being through art. It was ‘me’ time and that was what was good. We rarely give ourselves that time, especially to get in touch with the real you. It was also great meeting like-minded folk who share the same interests. I will certainly continue using the technique for my inner healing. RN

I had no idea what to expect from the Workshop and it was great. Thank you for putting it across so well. The entire experience was so nurturing. I feel it is a technique that will totally help to process feelings and emotions as well as centre one, in any situation. All one has to do is practice the techniques when required. DE (Fine artist)

You are a beautiful woman, with such a gift – thank you for sharing yourself, your home and your heart with all of us. LW

“Thanks so much for Saturday, I loved the intimate atmosphere you created, your method & found the entire day enlivening.The group of women were so diverse but with many commonalities, I loved getting to know each person.Your guided visualisation meditation was so evocative, powerful & moving, I could have sat there all day & done just that! ” Holly“

Thanks so much for a really stunning workshop yesterday! I so enjoyed it & loved the painting & creating of our vision boards. Thanks for having us all in your very lovely home & for all your special care, energy & input throughout the sessions – it was such a treat of a day!…it was like a divine like oasis/holiday after a crazy busy week. And it was really great to meet you. Hope you have a good rest of the weekend “. Lindsay
