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 🙂

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

logo relax and write

Since 2002, my best writing buddy, Helena Pastor, and I have been heading to Camp Koinonia in beautiful Evans Head NSW to write, read and edit each other’s work and have lots of fun doing yoga, swimming, walking on the beach and feasting.

This year we’re opening up our special place to share it with other like-minded women who want to do the same.

This is how happy we were at the end of our retreat earlier this year. We’d love for you to feel this relaxed and happy too.

So, 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.

The program includes gentle yoga sessions to suit every level of ability and fitness, and writing workshops guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing.

All activities are optional, so if you just want to lie around in the sun all day you can do that, but we’ll be having lots of creative fun in the beautiful hall just across the road from the beach.
