"A scapecoat is a coat that details in painting, writing, and with all manner of things pinned and stitched to it all the name calling a woman has endured in her life,
all the insults, all the slurs, all the traumas, all the wounds, all the scars"
Working with art in an ancient creative tradition allows processing of emotional material, and enables reconnection with our instinctive nature.
This workshop day is a deeply healing and nurturing experience.
The next Scapecoat day is on 22nd September.
Some of the feedback I received from last years Scapecoat Retreat Day...
"For me it was a truly amazing day. The environment you offered enabled me to sink back into the womb. The music, the food, the drinks all held and nourished me while I went back to my battles to sing over the bones and to then birth (bring new life to) my healing""The love, support and respect in the room created a very special space. It was a privilege to be a part of such a powerful and empowering day.""“What a special day! Once again I am blown away by the strength of women, and I am proud to be a woman!"
Places are limited and need to be booked in advance so that I can arrange for coats and materials. If you're interested, please get in touch ASAP!
