Retreats and Soul Art Adventures

3 Night Retreat, Self-discovery, Transformation & Self-love for women.  Soul art adventures that enrich you. Become What You Dream Of! (No art experience needed).

A circle of women holding hands outdoors.

Join Helen Bradshaw and the Soul Art Adventures team for a 3-day and night eco-expressive retreat of self-discovery in stunning nature on beautiful sacred land. In this fully immersive holistic experience, you will be guided to tune into your innate creative spirit through expressive, creative, mind, body and ecological experiences; experiences that support you to connect more deeply to yourself, accessing your own inner wisdom and the divine. A time and sacred space to rejuvenate, ignite and grow.

These creative soul adventures are for any women wishing to explore their rich inner landscape of hopes and dreams; of ‘knowing’ there is more. Exploring what may initially be a wish for living a more fulfilling life…in your purpose, in love, profession, making a difference in the world, may surprise you in revealing a much deeper journey inwards connecting to parts of yourself that may not have spoken for a while. Soul Art Adventures guides you safely and with huge heart and fun into more full expression and expansion of your true vibrant colours so you can tune into the visions that light you up and begin to confidently step into them in your everyday life with more self-acceptance and self-love. Where do you want to be? What is the distance between there and where you are now? Join me and take your next step on a soul art adventure to ‘become what you dream of’.

Unique and charming accommodation is ready for you to relax in and enjoy. All meals are provided using quality produce and made with love by our chef.

~ Beck ~
Helen’s retreat was worth every dollar to be able to work alongside her. I have gained a more positive attitude, self-acceptance and inner peace. The biggest change was finding me and enjoying my own company!

~ Trina ~

Helen’s program was one of my best gifts to myself this year!! The activities were fun, explorative, creative and insightful. I loved exploring using all the different mediums and I created some artwork that I will cherish forever. Helen was an incredible support not only throughout this whole experience. You really get an opportunity to be seen and feel deeply heard. The added bonus of doing this creative work is not only the realisations about yourself but also the new friends you meet!!! I have completed a number of Helen’s offerings and can’t recommend them highly enough!! Gift yourself or the ones you love the opportunity to come home to truly meet themselves in a fun, explorative way!

Helen Bradshaw is the founder of Growth Through Art and Openhearted Women’s Network based on the Sunshine Coast, and she travels wherever her work is needed.

Helen is a Creative Mentor, Art Therapist and published Artist. She weaves together Art Therapies, creative expression, self-development, movement and mindfulness, therapeutically guiding people of all ages and abilities. She also draws on her own diverse life experience, to enhance her support and understanding of each participant’s personal journeys both individually and in a group setting. It is from this place that she initiates Growth Through Art.

Helen is dedicated to providing a safe, sacred and inspiring space where you will be guided on a ‘soul art adventure’ to express, explore, transform and become what you dream of! She works with you to gain new perspectives and self-discoveries, to transform old patterns of behaviour and ways of being that no longer serve you.

The fabulous part is, no art experience is needed, and it is fun! Helen gives you license to play!

She has extensive experience and understanding in using a wide variety of art mediums including nature and the innate quality of each medium to inspire self-exploration, expression, and insight.

Helen creates a space for self-reflection, empowering emotional, physical and spiritual freedom, in turn creating a strong foundation for you to connect and tune into your inner being growing feelings of confidence, self-acceptance and self-love. The power is in surrendering and trusting the process rather than ‘thinking’ or worrying about the end product. This concept is so liberating for all of us.

She is passionate about creatively connecting people with themselves and others; journeying together exploring life’s possibilities, igniting more self-expression, feeling seen, heard and valued!

Helen has over 30 years’ experience and offers individual Creative Mentoring sessions, workshops, programs and retreats.

Her motto is: “Life is art in motion; let’s explore it together”.
