TREAT YOURSELF!

 

logo relax and writeIt’s glorious weather here in Brisbane this week. Just right for the beach!

Are you in need of some rest and relaxation? In need of a whole body/ mind/ spirit makeover? Exhausted from serving the needs of others all day every day like most women?

Treat yourself to a retreat by the sea to rejuvenate your body, nurture your creativity and inspire your heart. Come and join me, Helena, and the ten wonderful women who’ve already joined up, for a weekend of deep relaxation, gentle yoga¬†and fun writing classes.

I guarantee you’ll thank yourself over and over again.

We’re busily planning and organising the finer details – like desserts. I hope everyone likes chocolate self-saucing pudding and ice-cream ūüôā

Here’s a picture of me in my happiest of happy places, under a tree on a beautiful beach – writing. You too could look this happy (and silly and covered in sunscreen!)

Car-pooling, single rooms and pick-ups from nearby airports are all possible. Only a couple of weeks till we’re off, so get in now while we still have a few vacancies.

Come along. You deserve it! We’d love to have you with us.

More information is in my previous post. Or contact Helena at helenapastor2@gmail.com for all the details and booking forms.

RELAX AND WRITE RETREAT filling fast!

Spring into spring! Spoil yourself with a retreat to inspire and delight you.

Whether you’re a writer in need of relaxation and a good stretch, or a yoga practitioner yearning to write, this is the retreat for you.

Writing buddies, published authors and experienced creative writing teachers, Helena Pastor and Edwina Shaw have been holding their own private writing retreats at Evans Head since 2005 to relax and write and share their stories.

This year they’re opening up their retreat to other women who’d like to do the same.

Unwind with yoga and free your creative voice with lots of fun writing activities and workshops. All only a minutes’ walk from a glorious beach surrounded by national park where you can swim, walk, laze in the sun or meditate to your heart’s content.
