‘…the magical walks through the sacred karri forest and along the dramatic cape to cape coastal track are simply breathtaking, and the facilitation and leadership is top notch. Not only does Erika have the academic chops and years of extensive training with creativity leaders around the world to back it up- but she is a true leader and creative spirit herself and was able to take each of us on a unique and very personal journey of exploration into the most beautiful and sometimes not so beautiful corners of ourselves in the name of freedom and self expression. And if you're as lucky as I was - you've a good chance to be surrounded by an incredible group of like-minded individuals who are bound to become fast friends.’

Avi Melniker – writer, development manager

'The retreat re-ignited my mojo, connected me to like-minded folk, inspired and enlightened me to the creative blocks and joys in my life. Beautiful bush walks and workshops with fabulous artists including Erika herself. Amazing vegetarian food and divine venue.'

Sian Brown – cultural development officer

‘Thanks for taking the time to get to know us all individually Erika! You are very perceptive and are able to help people find their true self! I also appreciated the four weeks follow up coaching!’

Julie King – Teacher
