We believe that women THRIVE when we CREATE and CONNECT. And that TOGETHER we are able to BUILD LIVES and COMMUNITIES that are strong, joyful, creative, loving, resilient – in short, extraordinary! These workshops are designed to give women the space, time and tools they need to do that.

Our workshops:

  • Give women space and time to connect, reflect, dream, and plan.
  • Encourage them to listen to their body, emotions, mind and spirit.
  • Inspire them to draw on their strengths and build resources and supports.

Often people wonder what we do at our workshops. Well, we play – with colour, paints, music and movement. No special skills are needed. Women are often surprised at how much fun they have, and amazed at the insights that emerge. Simply being in a creative, supportive and non-judgemental space allows women to access their own inner wisdom.

We have a range of topics to choose from, or can tailor one to suit your group. The workshops are held at your venue, at a time that suits you. Costs are kept low (from $15 per person), so that you, your women’s group, or simply a group of friends, can give yourself some time to connect back to YOU.

The Tree of Life

Using the metaphor of the tree, we explore our roots, where we come from and what grounds us. We look at what keeps us strong and helps us nourish ourselves and build flexibility. And we consider what we give to the world, and the dreams and hopes that inspire us and move us forward.



Coming Home to Self

Often we are so busy giving out, it’s hard to find the time to really stop and connect with ourselves.  Using a variety of creative media, this  workshop provides a safe, supportive and gentle space to listen to both  body and soul.  We will be having fun with imagery, gentle movements, music, food and other feasts for the senses. No artistic talent is required at all – simply a willingness to be present.

Give yourself the gift of an afternoon with YOU!


The Colours of our Lives

Colours can capture and express emotions, fears, hopes and much more. All emotions are part of the experience of being human – this is a gentle way of recognizing, expressing and celebrating them. It can give greater peace, fresh insights and resilient strength. A beautiful and life-affirming workshop.


Songs of our Lives.

Songs speak to us, move us and provide the soundtracks of our lives. In this workshop, we explore the songs we love.






Come with us as we take a walk on the beach (metaphorically speaking!) and discover treasures washed up by the tide. Sometimes we feel battered by the waves of life – when the tide ebbs away, it’s good to see what gifts are left us. How can we use these bits of shell, driftwood and flotsam and jetsam to enrich and add meaning to our lives?

 Do Something Different!

We come to you, and lead you in a workshop that is creative, fun and special. We have an extensive range of topics to choose from, or we can work with you to fit your occasion.

Tell me more! We come to your group, and lead you in a workshop that is creative, fun and insightful. In surprising ways, we encourage you to access your own wisdom and that of other women. Women often tell us they are surprised at how much fun they have, and yet how much they learn.

Gather together your women’s group or a group of friends. Workshops can be from 2 hours to all day, and tailored to suit your needs. A 2 hour workshop costs just $15 per person.

What can we explore?  We have an extensive range of topics, or we can tailor one to your group. Our popular topics include:

  • The tree of life – what grounds us and makes us strong? What are our gifts to the world, and our dreams for the future?
  • Coming home to self – connecting and listening to ourselves.
  • Growing faith and building hope how do we build lives and communities with strong faith and hope?

We have a background in counselling, social work and the arts, but more importantly, we are women like you – women who want to live, love, learn, laugh and thrive – together.
