Join me and my select group of experts on this once in a lifetime journey of self-healing, self-discovery, and self-love on the pristine white beaches in Nassau, Bahamas.
In a beautiful and safe environment we begin to peel through the layers of self-doubt, self-hatred, people pleasing, our addictions to toxic people, places, and things including family, friends, religion, and jobs, that have kept us from living fully, happily and joyful lives because we have been taught self-love is selfish and wrong.
We will dig deep to uncover who you really are, why you have come and not what you have been taught you are “supposed to be.”
In a safe and very personal environment we will begin to uncover the reasons why you continue to seek approval from those very people who are not living their lives happily, yet feel compelled to tell you how to live yours. If you feel depressed, hurt, and anxious most of the time just knowing something is wrong, and just not sure of why and don’t believe you have the tools to change, we ask you to consider joining us.
This retreat might be for you if you truly desire everlasting change and a joyful calm and yet find yourself continuing to surround yourself in the sickness and toxicity of others and their beliefs out of fear.
Do you sometimes wonder if you are going crazy? It’s most likely because you continue to do the same things over and over again and expect something different. We're asking you to simply try something different.
If you are seriously ready for change, are ready to challenge and move beyond your current thoughts and beliefs about yourself…This retreat might be for you. We want you to thrive in this environment that we specifically hand-crafted for you offering an opportunity for real, lasting change with tools that will sustain long after our retreat is over.

Working in the wonderful surroundings of an artists’ community in the courtyard of a stately home in England is as idyllic as it sounds, but I have only returned to art after 35 years of the corporate rat race.
I am a strong believer in the healing qualities of art. Creativity calms and focuses the mind, and our unconscious thoughts come through to us in the form of dreams and paintings. To know ourselves we must tap into our unconscious.
For those who just don’t wish to pick up a paintbrush with me, my passion is to draw out the imagination and creativity of my clients and co-create art pieces for them, to aid the healing process.
