For the last weekend of my leave, I was lucky enough to get a place on one of the fabulous Tasmanian Yoga and Art Retreats run by the fabulous Suzie Donkers.
I left for Melbourne around 6am and arrived in sunny Triabunna by mid-afternoon in time to meet my Retreat-mates and catch the ferry across to Maria Island.
What a magical wombat-filled place!
We settled in for two days of yoga, walking, and Zentangle lessons from one of my all time Zentangle CZTs, Michelle Beauchamp of Shellybeauch.blogspot.com fame.
The food, the teachings, the surroundings, the yoga, the food, the company and the island itself were all amazing. I came home renewed and with a restored faith in humanity.
Here are some of the tiles we did.
And this fabulous collection was an example of Michelle’s work.
I came away with new ideas and techniques after this weekend. I’m inspired to try a bit more sparkle and I might even think about some colour in the future. (Although part of me is still feeling very content with black sakura micron and pencil.)
Many Oms to everyone.
