When we engage in creative arts, in this case masks, the subconscious has a chance to explore and release what it feels is appropriate. We all wear masks be that to project something we are not or to protect ourselves. Often we are so intent on focussing on the outward projection that we don't allow our awareness to rest on what is the true self hiding behind the mask. In this workshop I create a safe space for you to explore, feel and express external and internal emotions with the use of art, metaphor and imagery.

Every woman knows that voice, don’t they? That repetitive, loud inner bitch inside our heads. That inner dialogue that’s like a permanent radio broadcast telling us why we aren’t good enough, who do we think we are? Reminding us of our failures, catastrophising all the "what ifs"….. The truth is…. It exists with in every person on this planet. Our inner critic is there to keep us safe. To encourage you to playing small and familiar. Even the most successful people on the planet have this voice….. they’ve just learnt how to quieten it. Within this interactive workshop, Naomi will explain how you can use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to learn to turn the volume down and focus on what we really want without the inner critic getting it’s own way.

The Rite of the Womb is an energetic transmission meant to empower women and heal the feminine component of a woman’s energy.

What our fans love about uflourish & RESTFEST #busywomensdayoff
A lovely day at Restfest, My husband said I was beaming when I returned home. Saving the date for March 2019. Thank you for a smashing day. It was great to spend a special day with my tribe and meet awesome new ladies too.
I had the most magical day at Restfest 2018. I feel like I have a new vibration for my dreams and goals. I’ve been inspired by stories of the all the women I met on the day. The journey hasn’t been easy but the passion, devotion, enthusiasm and drive is what sets these women apart. Sharing their dreams with us at Restfest made me want to reach for my dreams even harder. Everything is possible and my cup is now full because of Restfest. Easily the best event I have been to this year. Everything was well thought out and you could tell a lot of energy went into organising and putting together an event like this. Roll on Restfest 2019.
Thank you, Naomi, for having the vision, courage and willingness to organise #busymumsdayoff day retreat. It was amazing and I’m still doing everything I learnt whilst relaxing to improve my life and myself and in the spirit of Wild Motherhood creative writing... I’m just flowing with memories, hooping, zen doodling, relaxing massage, delicious food, hydration, inspiring quotes and books, cosy places, beanbags, comfort and fun, relaxing and chatting, learning who I am a little more, growing in my self-confidence daily because of my day off. Because of you, I’m a better mum, a better person and inspired by the teachers and mentors you introduced me to. And all the other lovely women that I met. It feels like the start of a a journey. I relax more. I take time for me and am still hooping – I’ve lost 2cm from my belly! You also made sure I could indulge my taste buds with plenty of dairy free options. I’ll be coming again – Every busy woman deserves the ultimate day off.

This event is set to be absolutely amazing. Naomi who is organising it has been a huge light and inspiration in my life since meeting her almost 6 years ago. Her passion for life and following your dreams is infectious and I always leave my time with her feeling inspired, educated and alive with ideas and goals that I just know are going to happen.
