It has taken me a while to write this blog post because how could I put into word the amazing experience I had as a Facilitator for the Les Bohemes retreat in St Lucia.
I was invite by this Creative and innovative retreat company to run a series of Creative Healing workshops for their October Wellness retreat. I focused on Healing through Expressive Art.
With‘Picture book’ breath taking views, amazing healthy organic food and wonderful participants, the retreat created a wonderful experience of sharing and allowing, and I know for a few people this experience will have an impact for a very long time. Apart from the amazing food created , yoga classes and cooking lessons; words cannot convey the experience because in this instance the pictures speak more than words ever could.
Working as a Facilitator and with clients for over ten years I realise that to get the best out of clients and participantsis to surrender with boundaries whilst allowing the experience to unfold. Working withgroups allows me to learn more about other people and how they view the world (must be the anthropologist in me). Stepping aside to allow othersto shine is one of the most important humbling, gracious and loving acts a Facilitator can do.
