17 – 19th Jan 2020 | Creative Art Retreats with Mary-Louise

Updated: Jan 23, 2020

Reconnecting through your creative conscious

Welcome to an experience designed by an Artist, Teacher and Specialist Wellness Counsellor. Carl Jung said that in everyone some kind of artist is hiding. Our unique retreat will take you on a wonderful journey back to the true self, the constant unchanging self, the knowing self. Prepare to let yourself go in an holistic space where you will be inspired to elevate your creative awareness. Learn about lost aspects of yourself such as clarity and the ensuing happiness it brings.

Relinquish stress and process your emotions as you reconnect through creative consciousness and self-expression into joy and light. You don’t need to be an artist, everyone is creative and this course is designed to bring out the artist in you. The experience does not only involve and is not just about the materials as much as it is about you discovering yourself, In the process of creating. If you’re creating with a partner then the learning will be about yourself and each other. Art is a very healing medium which taps into our inner beings enabling us to learn about interesting areas in our individual subconscious ,so valuable in relationships ,either with ourselves or with others. You should leave this retreat feeling enlightened.

I look forward to welcoming you.

Cost of retreat is inclusive of creative workshop, all materials, accommodation and all meals at Temenos. The retreat only has space for a small number of people as intimacy is key to the full experience.. R4800pp for two nights and Sunday night is free. All meals included excluding Sunday dinner and Monday breakfast but feel free to book at the Temenos restaurant or explore the village.

Mary-Louise has been an Art Teacher for over 20 years as well as an award winning professional Artist and is registered with the ASCHP as a Specialist Wellness Counsellor. She has dealt with many issues around art as she has helped people through life experiences by using the medium and watching them flourish as a result. She is also an open water long distant swimmer who has done the Robben Island Swim, a writer and a very proud mother of three amazing children.

The Artist Roy Adzak cleverly states that good art is not what it looks like but what it does to us.
