Create & Meditate

Your investment  from $1,550  |  Maximum 8 overnight participants

Held on the surf coast of Victoria in Jan Juc, an hour from Melbourne’s CBD, our two-night weekend retreats encompass our belief that there is an artist within all of us, we just need permission to find them.

Each retreat will include four art workshops and up to four meditation/sound bath/circle sessions. There will be free time and breaks throughout the day for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

The weekend is fully catered by Brassica Catering, with a carefully selected and nourishing vegan menu to round out your experience.




You can arrive at the retreat on Friday afternoon from 2 pm. This allows you time to settle in and meet the founder before your first workshop.




Workshop 1 – The child within

Remember the freedom of playing as a child? No self-criticism, no judgement and overflowing imagination. This workshop will take you back to that feeling, giving you permission to make mistakes; although we believe in art, there are no mistakes. This workshop will help ease you out of your comfort zone and tap into the creativity within.


Workshop 2 – Chakra colours

Following on from a chakra cleansing meditation, we will look at the 7 chakra colours and create a beautiful watercolour piece to take home, reminding you of their meanings.

Workshop 3 – Mixed media memories

This workshop allows you to forget the stresses of your life and get into your flow, creating a beautiful piece using acrylic paint, inks, paper and items found in nature. We may even sprinkle a little glitter around! Your completed piece will certainly make a statement.


Workshop 4 – Tree of Life Intentions

We will create a tree of life using watercolour pencils and paints. We will chat about intention setting and write or paint your intentions into your tree of life.  This can then be placed in your home as a reminder that you have an artist inside you who has permission to use their creativity to help bring you back to calm whenever you need it and to focus on the intentions you have set.
