2021

Wednesday 5 May

11 am – 12 noon

Searching for Charlotte: the fascinating story of Australia’s first children’s author presented by Kate Forsyth & Belinda Murrell

Followed by a light lunch in the Secret Garden.

Kate Forsyth and Belinda Murrell are both award-winning and internationally bestselling authors, and sisters, descended from a family of writers, going back more than 200 years. Together they have written Searching for Charlotte – the biography of their great-great-great-great grandmother Charlotte Waring Atkinson, who wrote the first children’s book published in Australia in 1841. Charlotte struggled through many difficulties to become a bestselling author, artist, educator and a pioneer in the fight for women’s legal rights, waging a bitter court battle for the right to raise her children and to control her own finances after escaping domestic violence. This battle became a landmark case in Australian legal history.

  • Afternoons will be free for you  to rest, read, write, think, daydream and explore, plus a half-hour one-on-one consultation with both Kate and Belinda .

Mythic Creativity Retreat To Enchant & Empower Your Life

 

A week-long retreat to inspire you to re-discover your creativity and fill your life with enchantment, wonder and empowerment. Drawing on ancient myths and fairy tales, this retreat with Dr Kate Forsyth and Kinchem Hegedus celebrates storytelling, poetry, art and the making of things with hands and heart. It is designed to help you find a new sense of meaning, purpose and connection to the human and natural world, as well as an opportunity for a cleansing of your body and spirit. Dr Kate Forsyth draws on her doctorate in fairy tales and mythology, and her many years of creative practice as a poet, novelist, oral storyteller and retreat leader, to help you follow your bliss and awaken to a life of creative joy.

 

This retreat is for any woman who longs to re-discover her joy in creativity.

 

“Myths and fairy tales, like art and poetry, are potent distillations of the human psyche, speaking in the mysterious language of the deep unconscious: allegory and archetype, metaphor and motif, symbol and synchronicity. They are the quintessence of wonder and wisdom.’  Kate Forsyth

Spend your mornings talking, listening, laughing and playing with words with Kate and your fellow students. Spend your afternoons exploring the glorious countryside of Oxford and the Cotswolds, a landscape that has inspired some of the world’s most beloved authors.
