outside of ubud, bali
a 7 day feast for the soul...
as a tribe of women we will gather for a retreat in beauteous bali to restore ourselves amidst culture, creativity, nature and self-care.
nicole & i love creating little bits of beauty and art in our home and family life - as mamas we deeply appreciate the time to nurture ourselves through artistic endeavours, pauses in nature and shared connection. whenever we get together we head out into the sunshine to talk, dream, soak in our surroundings and make something with paint, paper, fabric or wool!
we both love to travel and be inspired by other cultures - and bali has cast her magical spell on us both - it is truly the perfect place to feel nourished and inspired.
nicole lived in bali for 4 years, speaks fluent indonesian and has many dear local friends who we will share the week with to get a truly rich balinese experience most tourists can only dream of.
our home for the week will be a boutique resort (that we have all to ourselves!) nestled in a lush, green tropical haven...the perfect setting for the magical creative and cultural feast we have planned.
mornings will be relaxed - after a delicious healthy breakfast we will gather in our open air studio for a circle and creativity - a smorgasboard of art supplies will be available at all times. nicole and i will share creative ideas including collage, painting, felting, beading, image transfer, screenprinting along with our shibori and fabric flag workshops.
after lunching somewhere amazing we will venture out in the afternoons to sacred places, local homes, ubud centre for shopping, walks amongst the beautiful landscape...
of course there will be plenty of down-time to swim, lay by the pool, get a massage...we have also scheduled a 'free day' to allow you to do whatever you wish in bali - visit the local healer, take a trip to the beach, ride an elephant at the elephant sanctuary...

I am blessed and grateful to have been there with you, with all those amazing women, to witness, to be one with, to be...the beauty and magic, the peace and the compassion, the letting go, the embracing, My heart has never felt so light. It continues to overflow with love and gratitude. So grateful to have been given the gift of Bali! It has changed my life... ~ Jess
Going to Bali has helped me reconnect with my inner self. It was such a humbling & eye opening experience that I feel has stayed with me as I have returned home & back to my daily life. I think about Bali everyday. The food, the culture, the happy humble people will stay with me forever. It truly was a life changing experience. ~ Liz
