Expansion for the Soul

SOUL RETREATS with Michele!

RAISE YOUR VIBRATION & Expansion for the Soul!   

Treat yourself to the gift and spend three days with Galactic Vibrational artist and wayshower, Michele Courage. Create, laugh, relax and expand your soul with the most fabulous kindred souls as you join me to make mega memories!


Here’s what I want you to know about my ART Retreats….

When you spend a weekend with me it’s not just about the art. It’s about the whole lifestyle of being an artistic person. To immerse yourself into being an artist is true joy! It’s about you expressing yourself in this world, feeling and learning to be relaxed about what you are creating and who you are. It’s more about enjoying the process of creating of just BEing! Of creating your very own special brand of art and beauty and then loving the whole of you, the creative you – the gorgeous soul who was brave enough to express yourself out into the world. That’s my gift – to give you the ‘courage’ to love what you create and to enjoy the process of making it and expressing yourself without judgement. This is my calling and I feel blessed and honoured to facilitate this beautiful shift for you. 

During this time together, we will laugh, express our hidden talent, reconnect with our creative side. I enjoy using guided mediations to enhance your experience. I do not object to your full ‘whoohoo’ side being revealed – in fact I encourage it. I want you to reconnect with your true authentic self, that part of you who needs to be let out again. We focus on letting go of our inner critic and enjoying playful exploration. I will share tips and techniques on creating vibrant, expressive, colourful paintings, using acrylics, charcoal, stencils, collage, ink and pastels. I help guide you into your own personal creative flow and introduce you to a variety of tools and techniques. 

We will create multiple works on paper and canvas. We will work not only on a large canvas, but also on multiple watercolour sheets examining both abstraction and more literal aspects of this style of painting. As I grow and expand in my own art practice I am always excited to share new discoveries and passions with my students!


A great relaxed weekend of good company and nice food set in beautiful natural surroundings. Michele is a great motivator who has the ability to draw out confidence and creativity in others – Yvonne

Soul Business Retreat

Next ART Retreat

19th & 20 Feb 2021

ART Retreat Wairarapa – 19th -21st Feb 2021


‘You don’t have to be “good at art”, and you won’t learn how to draw or paint. Every retreat I do shows me that there’s an artist in each of us, I simply allow the artist in you to experiment, discover and express freely. 

How does a magical ART FILLED weekend sound? A place where you GIVE IN to blissful art practice in a comfortable, a gorgeous original Farm house on the Wairarapa coast with a few likeminded souls (My retreats are small and personal). A safe space where you get to explore your own creativity by allowing your natural abilities to flow out of you.  You will surprise yourself!

What happens on my retreats …

Allow me to help you connect to that creative spark that often gets dimmed when we don’t allow ourselves to play and create. Creation is not only about art. It is also about how we create the lives, businesses, relationships and experiences we want. If you know you want something different in your life or experience and you don’t know where to begin exploring yourself, this is a place to start. It can ignite all those passions long buried and breathe new life into new dreams and aspirations.
