Our idea was to paint beautiful houses and huts in glowing colour and build the painting from this base.

Sadly we only had one day and we were not able to complete the paintings but the beginning was just thrilling.  I hope to reconnect with these wonderful artist and bring this painting to its completion.

Experiencing Life Creatively
Revive Mind, Body and Soul in Jeffrey’s Bay – South Africa

On the Beach Guesthouse is blessed with the most exhilarating views imaginable – a seemingly limitless vista of ocean and sky, 180 degrees of blue on blue brilliance. Enjoy your most memorable moments in an exceptional, lavish and stylish setting. Feel the sand beneath your feet while breathing in crisp salt air that carries the unmistakable freshness and magnificence of the ocean while exploring kilometres of beaches and see your lone footprints fade into the distance behind you.
Revive Mind, Body and Soul as you work in alignment with your inner compass. This weekend will empower you to begin making changes that will enable you to live a more relaxed, happy and authentic life, regardless of your life situation.
In the sanctuary space of On the Beach Guesthouse in Jeffrey’s Bay we will begin our gentle journey back to you. As we gain insight into our incredible Being, we begin to understand the rhythms and patterns that often block our progress and limit our sense of inner peace.
