with Ali Watersong and Craig Whisker,
Craigieburn Forest Park, Canterbury High Country


18 – 21 November 2021

You are invited to join this unique 3-day personal development workshop being held at Craigieburn in the Canterbury High Country. The workshop uses the psychodrama method to promote and expand creativity and spontaneity in all aspects of life, including personal, global and spiritual issues. During the workshop you can expect to enhance or regenerate life by developing new responses in your relation to yourself, your family, friends, workplace or community.
The Craigieburn Environment Centre is nestled in beech forest at the base of the Craigieburn Mountain Range. This beautiful setting has been chosen to support mental and emotional restoration, and to promote creative expression. This will be our eighth annual psychodrama workshop in the mountains. This year we are increasing the length of the workshop and changing the venue. Our aim is to offer experiential psychodrama to a wide range of people, including those with no previous psychodrama experience.


Please note the venue change to the Craigieburn Environment Centre and the extra day!


Your Investment: $595—$895 (incl. workshop, accommodation, meals & GST)
