Soul & Strategy Retreat - with Leah Goard, Painted Boat, Pender Harbour B.C.

I can help you build team moral and form safe environments for brainstorming and ideation.  Put me in your agenda as an element of surprise – a little yoga, creative exercise and laughter!

I facilitate art (& yoga, optional) sessions that quickly encourage creative thinking, ease tension, get bodies moving and make people smile.

Let’s talk about adding some spark to your agenda.

I have had the pleasure of leading workshops in schools, for community groups, charity organizations and within business conferences.

You got nothing but rave reviews from everyone who took part.  Opus Art Supplies, North Vancouver, Manager

1 hour session idea

I will gladly create an hour of creative exercises and movement to support your focus. This session would be excellent at the beginning to set your intention and “break the ice”, as a mid-day break for relief of an intense agenda or at the close of your session as way to wrap up your work together.

3 hour session idea

An in depth exploration – building creative confidence and team spirit.  We can paint, draw, sketch and write during this time period.  I would love to create a session that would build on your theme for the event or your company manifesto!   This experience would also make a perfect (and productive) gift for your staff or team.

We will talk about your intentions and requirements.  I will gladly supply you with a detailed quote for your next workshop or event.  My rates will be based on number of participants, timeframe and supplies required.

Marlene is a brilliant partner and collaborator for any business, body or soul event, workshop, corporate session or retreat that you are planning. She has been an integral part of the last five business and soul retreats that I have held over the past three years.  Marlene has created break out sessions that have combined yoga, movement, art based learning and practical exercises for participants to move outside of their traditional lines. And she always ensures that each participant can take the tools and techniques they have learned and integrate them into their lives. Marlene has an uncanny ability to read the dynamics of a room and cater to a wide audience knowing intuitively what the group and individual needs. Marlene is a dream to work with –  professional, extremely reliable, fun, caring with great attention to detail and I trust her implicitly.  I simply can’t recommend her enough!  Leah Goard

  • stress-relief and emotional well-being
  • the development of personal expression and self-awareness
  • psychological resilience and capacity to recall information and memory processing
