Have you been yearning...

  • for time away from the busy-ness of everyday life and all its responsibilities?
  • to carve out time for your creativity and personal growth?
  • to play with paint and crayons, and to move your body and bathe in music that soothes your soul?  
  • to be stimulated and inspired with new places to take your creativity? 
  • for some space and stillness to stop 'doing' and just 'BE' in the beauty and power of nature?

Yes? This retreat is for you.  

25-28 March 2021 A chance to recharge your creative energies!

Ignite your spark:

You have permission to abandon yourself to four glorious, uninterrupted days of making art, free from everyday chores, and responsibilities (except for kindness to yourself and others, of course). 

You can explore, brush in one hand, charcoal stick in the other, your soul's desire to fully express yourself, and find the juicy, creative voice that's the Essence of You!

Don't think you're creative? Don't worry. No art experience necessary. You will be guided all the way.

Permission to play:

Women from all over gather together — mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, working women, retired women, stay-at-home mums, healers, teachers, therapists, activists, permaculturalists, planners, painters and chefs... all colours and flavours! 

They come for the opportunity to put aside those roles. And you can too! When you arrive, you can take off the hats you wear and don the outrageously, colourful hat of your most desired, creative expression! You have permission to smoosh paint around, play with colour and shapes, textures and surfaces. Access to all the art materials a girl could want! All for you, to bring out your playful spirit!

Supportive community:

One of the things Spirit of Women retreaters always comment on... the joy of being part of a dynamic, soulful community, and how they created deep connections that transformed into lasting friendships. 

So when you come, you'll find yourself surrounded with women who also crave time to create, who bring knowledge and ideas that will inspire you, and who are willing to engage wholeheartedly in this journey of creative expression together. 

Soak up the pampering:

The retreat leaves time between sessions to relax and unwind in the beauty of High Spirits. You can soak in the hot tub, stretch out by the pool, relax in the sauna and opt for a pampering kahuna body massage! It's a specialty of High Spirits!

"We've both been working with women to drop the shackles that hold them back and dreamed of doing something together that would support more women to express themselves fully, loudly, gloriously, and daringly!

That's how Spirit of Woman Creative Retreat was born!"

— Mette & Michelle 

Here's Mette & Michelle talking about who the Spirit of Woman Creative Retreat is for...

Our Venue — High Spirits Retreat — is Special in So Many Ways... 

High Spirits Retreat is set in the lush rolling hills of the subtropical Noosa hinterland.  

With endless views and nature outside your door, it is the perfect location for your creative journey.  

It has been purpose-built as a Retreat Centre by Mette and Jorgen and was design with seclusion, beauty and tranquility in mind.  

I know saying yes to yourself can be hard...  

It can be a struggle to carve out the time... to put yourself and your dreams at the top of the 'to do' list... and to set aside the money.  

You might be like so many others – waiting til they feel like they ‘deserve’ it or for the stars to ‘align’…  

But what if…

...saying YES to yourself and expressing your creative spirit...
