We focus on the present moment and calm our busy minds.
We experience accomplishment and the joy and pride that come with it.
We strengthen our imagination and problem-solving skills.
We explore and express our inner world.
We build resilience for tough times.

Befriend your nervous system: a creative approach to the science of connection to strengthen your resilience and relationships

“My experience with ‘Living with Intention’ and the resulting practice has been outstanding. It is such a meaningful journey! I’ve never realized the kind of growth and development that is possible when you focus on one word as an intention for the year, with the right guidance of course! I’ve learned so much about myself. Just taking time for myself to reflect and to explore my creativity - such an amazing process. After each 'session' I was completely amazed about my capacity to grow and embrace new perspectives for my thinking and behaviours. Absolutely impressive.
I definitely recommend exploring this kind of creative adventure which led to a deep dive into myself, enhancing my wellbeing, mindfulness, happiness & self-love! Thanks so much, Conny - I will definitely continue with this practice and course.”

"I LOVED Conny's Vision Cards workshop. I have made vision boards several times, even attended a workshop or two but I really loved Conny's approach. Often vision boards can be overwhelming in scope. Conny's art therapist background helped us simplify down to focus the process into a wonderfully serene, meditative and creative process. I especially loved the reflective questions which helped me discover hidden meanings in my card on the day and beyond."

My monthly newsletter brings you a mix of creativity, psychology and mind-body connection applied to everyday life. I do not share your details with anyone.

Unless otherwise indicated, face-to-face workshops will be held in small groups to make them a safe and intimate experience and benefit from the inspiration we get from sharing and connecting with other like-minded people. In-person workshops are held at different venues in Melbourne. Further event-specific details will be provided ahead of booking.

No artistic experience is required. Bring your curiosity and openness to imagine and experiment.

If you like the sound of a specific workshop topic but prefer working 1-on-1 or would like to work with a private group of friends or co-workers - contact me to discuss a customised approach. My workshops are for adults (not children), but a private family or mixed age event can be tailored to your needs.
