New Dates for Shrine Making Workshops



People have created shrines for thousands of years to celebrate and honour connection to spirit, nature, significant people and important life events; in short, anything which holds meaning and deserves remembrance, such as:

  • Worship and Prayer
  • Love and Gratitude
  • Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Healing and Wellbeing
  • Birth
  • Death
  • Relationships
  • Creative Visualisations

Our lives have become so busy that we often forget or/and have difficulties to make space for what is meaningful in our lives.

In this workshop you get to explore what really matters to you whatever that may be and create your own personal shrine to bring that into focus.

You will learn how to create a beautiful shrine from a pre cut cardboard template which is quick and easy to assemble. We use paint, collage, and found objects to decorate and embellish your sacred space.

We explore together colour, symbols and imagery to enhance the meaning of you shrine. These processes are accompanied by group sharing’s and reflective self explorations.

Shrine building is a creative process which will inspire you, hopefully in an ongoing dialogue, to focus and remember and engage with your hearts voice. These shrines can easily be repainted and redecorated again as your focus changes.

“Creative Arts Therapy uses the therapeutic relationship and various expressive arts modalities to explore and share how we experience our lives. “

“Often when problems arise we can find ourselves in a stuck mental space and the issues surrounding the problem are vague and unclear. Expressing what we feel and experience through a visual representation of any kind, be it through movement, paint, crayon, clay, collage or just through imagination, brings more clarity to our inner explorations, making it more visible and tangible than only talking about our issues.” – Claudia Gyr

Please forward this information onto any services that may be interested.
