EXPAND is a series of day-retreats created in partnership with Lucy Bryn (Reiki practitioner) and Manal Nemr (Life Coach) In these workshops we focus on mind-body connection. Together, we guide participants through a soft movement practice and energy healing to integrate our physical and emotional bodies. This is followed by a creative activity such as finger painting, colouring, pastel drawing and more. Before we begin the creative activity, we encourage participants to reflect on a subject that encourages self reflection. Participants are then encouraged to write down what comes up as they create, followed by a group discussion of our findings during the process. Snacks and tea are provided as we encourage participants to connect with one-another in a safe and inclusive setting.
Creative Wellbeing was founded in 2016 by Artist Corinne Blouin and Life Coach Manal Nemr. Together, they curate spaces that encourage their participants to find a greater sense of wellbeing through the act of creation. They use the colouring medium as a support tool for introspection and address various topics such as vulnerability, self-love, balance and more. These workshops foster a low-risk environment and allow participants to express themselves in a playful, yet insightful setting.
Participants learn valuable skills to build resilience towards various life topics. We work on developing self awareness skills to help them gain a better understanding of themselves and their needs. We help participants understand that self-exploration and healing is accessible to them at any time through simple creative exercises that can be continued on a personal level. This allows participants to connect creativity to wellness and empowers them to foster their creative abilities in a positive way.
