We explore our creativity with painting, and self exploration journaling. Additionally we create our own massage balm for self love. At the end of every day your children have some reflection time where they write, draw, express however they like in their SoulJuice Journals.

Breathing Techniques & Mindfulness

Breathing techniques are an amazing self-regulating tool to teach kids. The wonderful thing about breathing to find your calm, peace or simply to just listen is that you don’t need anything to do it! – Once kids have the techniques they are able to pick them out of their tool box WHENEVER they need. Gratitude trees, understanding our food and all of our wonderful self explorations activities are some of the great ways your children will explore mindfulness.

Confidence Walk

A walk where full confidence is expressed. Imagine a catwalk with voices of empowerment and encouragement shouted to you as your talk the stage. This full Empowerment activity leaves all participants with their cups full!

Guided Meditations

At the end of every day we always finish with a guided meditation. This gives your children the space to know its okay to slow down and find calm sometimes. Listening to a guided meditation at the end of the day allows your children to be still and reflect on the day together. 

Growth Video

Where Does The Magic Happen?

“I know the magic of feeling empowered to express myself fully with no limits! This is how I was able to find the courage to create these inspiring programs for children. Once empowerment took over me there was no stopping, and this is why I decided to create this retreat and share all I’ve learnt along my journey with these incredible kids  ” – Ella Bhatt-Monro
