Workshops

Growing Happy, Healthy, Creative Families & Community

Our holistic and interactive approach offers new opportunities to explore, grow and reflect.

Our workshops offer parents, carers and educators the opportunity:

    • To explore and gain a better understanding of Self, which in turn helps you understand, guide and nurture your children (or those in you care) in a loving way so that they may take their place in an ever-changing world with confidence, resilience, empathy and care.
    • To enrich your home life and establish a family culture, the results of which are happy families with strong, connected and creative children.

Our initial introductory workshops for parents and educators will be followed up with ongoing sessional workshops over six months.
