Maroon Retreat ~ Creative Healing

  • Petite Anse Grenada (map)
Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things.
— Osho


It's been almost two years since our last Maroon Retreat so we are thrilled to announce 'Creative Healing' a full day designed to rejuvenate and inspire you. Do you want to live more creatively? Yearning for a shift in perspective? Want to improve your health?

Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe and Melissa Riddell have put together a delicious day of renewal with rich, interactive sessions weaving together yoga therapy, meditation, a smoothie detox seminar and hands-on demo (yum!) plus a Mandala Stone Art Workshop hosted by Stacey Byer. The day will end with live music by songstress Jenny Jeremiah.

This year's location is stunning Petite Anse on the north coast of Grenada. If the idea of transport is holding you back, don't worry we will coordinate ride shares or a bus.

Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing it is not purely economical, then it is creative. If you have something growing out of it within you, if it gives you growth, it is spiritual, it is creative, it is divine.
