Workshop Outline

During this workshop we will be encouraging the practice of mindfulness, to enjoy movement, meditation, art and being in this wonderful environment. We will focus on:

Sitting, walking and eating meditation

Stretching and breathing to ground in the present moment

Flowing from stillness to gentle movement that comes from within you

Allowing your movement to flow into creative form on to paper through a shared group experience and in your own individual space.

At times, we may be in silence at other times talking and sharing.

No previous experience of mindfulness or creative arts is necessary.

During the middle of the day there will be time to go on local excursions, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, or paddle boarding all of which are included in the price or just hang out.


“For me the combination of Mindfulness, Movement and Creativity was anxiously irresistible. I needn’t have worried. The workshop offered a balance of experiences designed to engage the senses, mind, body and spirit. Mindful walking triggered my own creative muse, and the flexibility of approach allowed me to pursue my own direction when it arose. As leaders, Kovido and Suraya complimented each other in approach. All round, the weekend was an experience of discovery and personal insight.”
– Jenny, Dunedin

“I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend of mindfulness, movement and creativity with Kovido and Suraya. They provided an environment of freedom and acceptance to take a break from the busy-ness of life and look within at what really matters. Thanks to a great team that helped me gently explore my thoughts through music, art and meditation, the benefits linger with me still.”
– Miranda Barnes, Gore
