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.
