About the Course

Understanding God’s love in our heads and knowing His love in the depths of our hearts are two vastly different things. When God’s love meets us in our deepest places of hurt and pain, healing rushes forth and freedom abounds. Yet, achieving that connection can seem difficult, terrifying, overwhelming or even impossible.

Through creative expression (not just art!) you can safely explore your connection with God, as well as your own identity, and allow Him into the darkest recesses of your heart where words are not enough to articulate the inner turmoil. With inspirational, deep and relevant teaching, mixed with a variety of creative workshops, this course takes you on a journey of self-recognition as well as learning how to trust Jesus and receive His healing on a deeper level.

But it is not a journey you walk alone; one of the hallmarks of this course is the togetherness of being the family of God. For some, this is a challenge, for others it offers love and acceptance as they have never experienced it before. It is a week of laughing together, learning together, praying together, creating together, crying together and healing together; just as God intended us to live.

It may just be that you need an injection of fun and family, some time just for you; or it may be that you are desperate for a breakthrough and don’t know where to start. With plenty of support from our experienced creativity team, this is a safe course for you if you are fearful of the healing process, feel there is no way forward for you or you seem lost in a sea of pain. With no condemnation or judgement, you will be accepted where you are at, loved for who you are and welcomed into our imperfect but caring family.

The Centre

What better location for such an event than in the amazing beauty and peace of Blairmore House? With spacious and luxurious accommodation, nestled in a large woodland estate, surrounded by the stunning vista of the highlands of Scotland, Blairmore offers comfort, seclusion and creative inspiration for you to make the most of time just for you.

I learned that God’s family can be trusted here. I learned that maybe there is hope that not all of God’s family want to hurt and reject you. Thank you for showing me kindness, love, compassion, sensitivity and much more in every area which spoke deeply into my heart.
