Hey, I’m Faith and I’m an author, coach and guardian of Project Roots. I recovered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, depression, IBS, eating disorders, body hate, fighting myself and my life and the need to fill myself up from the outside in. I have gone on to write 4 books, totally change every area of my life, create this center and many pieces of art work too. Now I’d like to share with you how to get your creative juices flowing in this 1 – 4 week partially self-guided retreat.
If you are struggling to create that special project you have in your heart, to find time, focus, inspiration or just a little space, or maybe you have hit writers block for the millionth time, then this who i am calling too. Come and consciously create whatever it is you want to create here with us. It could be a book, painting, sculpture, photos, embroidery, jewellery, pottery, song, music or maybe you are not even sure what it is, you just know you want to create something, there is something waiting to be born.
This partially self-guided retreat will allow you to be more free, passionate, open, healthy, happy and thus creative. Each day you will be invited to explore ways of connecting back to the real you, letting go of things in the way of your creativity and exploring ways to enhance what it is you wish to here and in your life. Each day you will make your own breakfast and lunch in our communal kitchen (everything will be supplied for you), with dinner made for you and eaten as a group. This allows you to keep the creative juices flowing whenever they come.
There will be daily yoga and/or meditation practice together, we will eat our evening meals together and there will be other prompts and practices to enhance your create flow that you can choose to do or not during your day. The stunning surrounding, walks, nature and nourishment of this area will do the rest!
12.00 noon, Monday 2nd September or you can start any Monday through September. You can come just for a week, or for the whole month (at a reduced weekly price – see details below).
