Tap into your creativity to spark innovation in both your personal and professional life

CREATE & MEDITATE Retreats are run by Artfulness Retreats every 2-3 months

They believe there is an artist within all of us, we just need permission to find them. So, here’s your opportunity.

Escape to Lysterfield, 37 km southeast of Melbourne, Victoria for their two-day weekend retreat. Bookings are available for the April/May Create & Mediate Retreat. If that’s too soon there’s another one in late May.

These are fully catered, two-day, small-group events created to give you a sense of calm and joy in a busy world. They allow the you to take a moment to focus on rediscovering your creativity, with a side of self-care.

Providing a range of art workshops, along with meditation, the retreats are designed to fully engage the creative mind, body and spirit and as a bonus, you’ll be treated to a relaxing shiatsu massage to round out the experience.

Each retreat will include 4 art workshops, up to 5 meditation sessions, as well as the 30-minute shiatsu massage. There will be breaks throughout the day for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, and the menu will be mainly vegetarian.

You will get some well-deserved time away from your day-to-day life, and will leave feeling refreshed and proud of the artworks you have created.

Artfulness Retreats, where creativity meets calm, is the creation of Sharon Westin. Sharon was attending a workshop herself with the  inspiring author, Elizabeth Gilbert when the inspiration hit. She was looking for her enchantment, the thing that gives you that ‘buttery, yummy feeling’ when everything feels just right.

Artfulness Retreats is what gives Sharon joy, a space for you to feel creative, relaxed and free.

Sharon has hand-picked her team of specialists to bring these retreats to life and they look forward to creating, meditating, laughing, moving, innovating and relaxing with you.


More CREATE Retreats

Sharon also runs CREATE & MOVE workshops which include 4 art workshops, 2 movement sessions, and 4 laughter sessions. The next one is in August and you can find out more about it here.

And keep an eye out for her new  retreat – CREATE & INNOVATE. We can’t wait to learn more.
