You will practice ways to take care of your inner artist, empowering the parts of yourself that may get neglected in everyday life. Open your soul to channel creativity from all that surrounds you. Nature is always creating and recreating herself. Take permission to bring your ideas to life. Make waves within your body, mind and soul.

A gentle Full Lymphatic Drainage Massage – Savour this wonderful 60 minute top-to-toe body massage. This time is for you to relax and will help you let go of tensions and distractions so that your body is primed for opening to new inspiration. Drift away to a world where it’s just you whilst enjoying the aromatherapy oils and acupressure that soothe you in this deeply restorative treatment.

Self Expression Workshop – Therapeutic journaling, conversation and experimental explorations are used to uncover the secrets of your artistic being. Practicing expressing these deep identities will allow you to attune to creative acts with less attachment to the outcome. Through these acts you can embody the true meaning of artistic practice, that it is an ongoing journey of self-expression.

This creative package will provide space for you to feel, to breathe and to be heard. When we acknowledge what is holding us back, we can peer around the curtain and shake off the experiences and opinions that are keeping us from sharing our creativity. Gentle, loving guidance will be offered by The Nest team to help you find harmony with your inner artist. Our facilitators provide you with simple, yet powerful practices to help reconnect your mind, body and emotions. Leaving you well resourced to take the next steps on your creative journey.
