ICELAND – THE RETREAT
With Sheree Angela Matthews
18–22 June 2018
Eyrarbakki, The Golden Circle, Iceland
I’ve fallen in love with Iceland. This unique and otherworldly island with its mixture of fjords, mountains, lava fields and hot springs, has possessed my soul and continues to whisper her beauty into
I would love to share my fascination with this country with you through a creative journal retreat in Iceland during the Summer Solstice of 2018.
During the period of the midnight sun, when the days are endless, you’ll experience the rich and varied landscapes of Iceland, fill your creative pot with the juiciness of visual journaling, mixed media creativity to produce a beautiful unique textured visual journal.
Iceland – The Retreat is for you if you:
* value being part of a small and intimate circle of women
* value the time and space to explore your voice through creativity
* want to explore your stories and dreams and desires in a safe space
* appreciate the natural landscape in all her summer splendor
* always wanted to visit Iceland but have never had a reason or the gumption.
Flying in on Sunday, you’ll settle into our luxury, spacious Eco-house on the southern coast of Iceland, ready to start Monday morning. Each morning, after breakfast, you’ll get creative with paint, images, words and wishes as you practice the skills of visual journaling within a supportive and encouraging space. You’ll dive deep to explore your stories and dreams and desires, creating a unique visual journal to use as a roadmap once you return home to continue your journey back to self.
We’ll share the midday meal together before heading out into the landscape of this awe-inspiring island. We’ll visit Þingvellir national park, geysers, waterfalls, mountains and the coastlines all within easy reach of our Eco-house.
Each evening, we’ll come back together to share a meal as well as our stories and take-aways from each day. Meet Sarah our resident cook.
On our last full day in Iceland, we’ll visit the capital city of Reykjavik. There we’ll spend the morning in a workshop within an art gallery or museum, then the rest of the day is yours to explore this richly vibrant city.
Stroll along the sea front to Harpa, the iconic concert hall. From here go for something to eat and drink in the Old Harbour or walk up the hill past the Pond to visit Hallgrímskirkja church. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars for you to delve into to experience the Icelandic culture and traditions.
