About this Event


Sunday 8th November 11am-6pm

Price -  €65.00

Kickstart your creative expression in a day of guided explorations to play, make and create with abandon. We will create poems, songs, artwork, dance, sound and movement. Opening up the creative channels to allow your expression to be heard.

Drawing on the free spirited wonderment of your inner child and the fulsome wisdom of the divine mature feminine within you, this workshop encourages a surrender into the wellspring of your creative power. No audiences, no targets, no expectations, no attachments to outcome, no need to be “good” or “professional” or an “artist” the only necessity is you allow yourself to be free to play and create.

If you have always wanted to draw but didn’t think you would be “good enough” or had a yearning to write poems or songs, or longed to express your interior life through movement, this day may be the golden ticket your inner Creatrix hungers.Allow the Creatrix to kickstart your creative heart. Give her permission to make, create, and play with abandon. We will create poems, songs, artwork, mini scultpures, dance and movement without any attachment to outcome.

Bring paints, pens, paper, your instrument if you have one, wear clothes you can move in, bring your camera if you wish to explore photography. Safe, sacred, playful and fullsome.

A dreamer, a maker, a creator. She who give birth to her dreams, who gives space, patience and encouragement to her desires and is able to support and nurture the dreams of others. One who is unafraid to meet the shadow aspects of her creativity: the saboteur, the victim, the procrastinator, the judge, and the critic as she flows in the golden light of her unique essence. Willing to re-employ them shadows to be of service to her highest creative self.

The Creatrix is fully connected to all things; wildly courageous, rich with intuitive wisdom and emboldened with the strength to walk her own path even if it be a journey into the unknown.

Join Lewis in a playful day of creative expression through body and voice to unleash the Creatrix within. Whatever discipline of creativity she loves; be that painting, poems, music, songs, dancing, knitting, doodling, baking, visioning ideas. This workshop is suitable for all women, you really don't need to be an "artist" or "performer" to attend. We meet in confidence to journey together in sacred circle as a sisterhood.
