Unleash your Inner Canvas….your Inner Joy….Express Yourself


Lizzie Connor Self LoveWe live in very fast-paced, frantic, tech-saturated times, and life can feel relentless.

We may feel overworked, overwhelmed, overstressed.  OVER IT! 

Our challenges could even be anxiety, depression, burnout, panic attacks, or unhealthy emotions and behaviours

…or issues relating to finances, partners, bosses, important life decisions, staff, the loss of a loved one

…or health issues, including chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, HIV, cancer, sleep problems.

Come and Rejuvenate Yourself!

Mindfulness Trainer Fatima Bacot and Professional Artist Lizzie Connor have powerfully teamed up at Go Arty in Maroochydore and put together a fantastic Program for YOU to have ‘ME-TIME’, and to immerse yourself in a dynamic weekend of FUN, MEDITATION, IMAGINATION, RELAXATION AND CREATIVITY to rejuvenate your fully from the inside-out. 

You’ll learn some great Mindfulness Meditation Techniques (or deepen your own techniques), plus take home your own Artwork!

Combining Mindfulness and Art together is therapeutic and life-changing.  They each have extraordinary power to nurture you and your Wellbeing….in ALL areas of your life.  They help to bring you into the ‘power of the present’ so that you can release your worries and stress, and spontaneously dive into Peace, Play, Joy, and Wellbeing!

On Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation is taking the world by storm, and Fatima’s classes on the Sunshine Coast have been selling out like crazyMindfulness Meditation powerfully brings you into the present-moment, so that you ‘create space’ from overwhelm, stress and worry.  It helps you to navigate challenges more smoothly, open up to options and to confidently step onto the path of increased wellbeing. In so doing, not only are happiness, abundance and freedom natural results, but also your capacity to more positively create what you’d REALLY like to experience in your life!!


On Art

Working with your imagination and your hands is one of the best ways to soothe anxiety and eliminate stress, channel emotion…AND to get in touch with living more freely again.  Like Mindfulness, Art is also an extremely powerful way to move into ‘present-time‘, and it’s a voyage of discovery, fun, and self-revelation!  You dynamically stimulate your imagination and creativity.  In this Workshop, you will express yourself in painting or drawing….with paints, or pastels, pencils, charcoal.  Whatever you are drawn to. Maybe there’s even a ‘message’ for you in what you create over the weekend!  You will be able to workshop your idea for a piece of art with Lizzie’s help, and she will help YOU to make it happen!


During this beautiful, life-changing Weekend, join Lizzie and Fatima as they share powerful ways to assist you into Rejuvenation, Relaxation, Self-Expression. Whether you are an absolute beginner or seasoned in either Mindfulness or Artwork, this will be a Weekend you will never forget!

You will leave the Workshop with:

  • techniques to increase your well-being, abundance, happiness and personal fulfilment
  • understanding the Extraordinary Therapeutic Powers of Mindfulness and Art
  • experiencing your imagination and creativity being channeled into your own Artworks
  • increased self-confidence
  • exploring the restorative and calming power of Mindful Eating and Drinking, Mindful Breathing, Mindful Concentration, Body Awareness….which you can use ANYWHERE to de-stress
  • loads of fun interaction, experimentation and SHARING
  • wonderful ways to cultivate optimism, appreciation, kindness and joy
  • your own special Artworks!


Wouldn’t you just love to have some de-stressing techniques in your toolkit?

Wouldn’t you just love to hang your own piece of art on the wall? 

Then, come have some ‘you-time’ with Fatima and Lizzie!
