Weekend Creativity Retreat covers full spectrum of the creative arts.

The Inspired Creativity Retreat for March will be held at Umdloti Beach on the KZN North Coast.

Workshop facilitators of the Inspired experience, Jane Ross and Margaret Rogers, are both university qualified drama specialists with a wide range of experience in the fields of creative arts and alternative healing.

“The INSPIRED! experience is founded on the knowledge that each one of us is inherently creative,” explains Margaret Rogers. “We provide a peaceful nurturing atmosphere for creativity to arise naturally, whether one is a professional artist practising in a chosen field, or simply a person longing for direction or fulfillment of some deeply buried potential. With lightness and humour, we begin with an in-depth clearing of creative blocks.

“Many forms of expression are explored through creative play,” she continues. “We cover the full spectrum of the creative arts from song, to painting, from dance to craft, poetry and more. There will be space for introspection, journalling and connection to nature, as well as pure celebration of life. We believe that joy is our natural state. Our aim is for participants to leave on Sunday feeling clear, relaxed, regenerated and truly INSPIRED!

“Our venue has a magnificent sea view, is right on the beach, and gives the feeling of being far away from the city. Overnight accommodation is provided at a bed and breakfast 2min walk away.”

The next Inspired Creativity Retreat takes place from March 7 at 09h00 to March 8 at 17h30.
