Welcome to Naturally Creative You 2019!
Dear Seeker of Connection,
I am left wondering about the nature of relationships, our ability to be with each other and to care with genuine hearts how other people are doing?
In this Naturally Creative You series we look both at relationship to ourselves and then how we relate to other people.
Our relationship to nature and nurture that part of self-care that allows us to create space, connection and well-being in our lives.
A place to be seen and heard, to feel and just be.
We return to nature where there is space for play, ritual and connection.
How we are meant to be.
A place to play with the simplicity of the elements of our natural environment.
Grounded in customs as old as man.
Feel the sun on your face, the wind on your hair, the water on your feet, the earth in your hands, as we create spaciousness within you.
Your weekly retreat in nurture and creativity.
Deepening the connection to self and how we relate to others

Why are the sessions during the day?
The sessions are set to fit with Thumbs Up's up schedule. I invite you to indulge in Monday nurture if it works with your schedule.
We have started!
It is completely delicious to give time to ourselves in this way.
As an added bonus to our workshops I decided to send an exercise a week to our mail list to share in what is enriching our community.

We are offering live workshops in Lower Hutt in collaboration with our friends Thumbs Up and Hutt Creative Communities visiting various locations around the Hutt to embrace our naturally creative side in nature.
The weeks will rotate one session at Thumbs up and then one in Nature.
Please note: the varying start times. We will ensure everyone has a schedule for the workshops.
You are invited to join us too.
We have seventeen weeks of spacious creative time to connect to ourselves within the group experience. This is a chance to ground yourself in nature, embrace practical tools of creativity and embodiment.
Get out of your head and into nature, to reset the body and mind.
Embracing the opportunity for nurture in nature we will be exploring the deeper value of relationship to self and well being.
This means opportunities for making art, creating mandala’s from nature, singing song, play: inviting the playful freedom of our youth to creative experiences that allow us to become present. Enjoy having hands on the earth and feet on sand and greenery in your hands.
All of our work will be held with an Intentional Creativity process.
