“Yesterday I attended the exceptionally talented Cassandra Gaisford’s Creative unblocking retreat which took place within the tranquil grounds of her stunning property overlooking the ocean.

We started the day with an initial relaxed chat over a refreshing glass of chilled spring water and then headed to the shade of a beautiful old oak tree where we settled down in hammocks and beanbags for a guided Lotus Heart meditation.

Feeling blissfully relaxed we headed to Cassandra’s studio next to the pretty herb garden, where we were encouraged to choose colours, draw pictures and write words and phrases which related to the situations in our lives that were causing us anxiety, distress or blockages.

Despite initial hesitation from a few of us…Cassandra was very patient and soon the images and words were flowing thick and fast onto large sheets of paper.  I personally hadn’t ever done anything like this and it was incredibly insightful…how we bury so much and suddenly it’s all ‘out’ and in front of you.  Cassandra then helped us interpret what we had produced from her counsellor’s perspective…we all found this exercise incredibly helpful.

Next, we headed to the kitchen garden where we picked our lunch from an abundance of rocket, tomatoes, peppers and salad leaves. After a cup of Kawakawa tea, picked freshly from the garden, we headed back to the studio where we shared some healing sessions and discussions.

I left the retreat feeling wonderfully relaxed and energised and ready to move forward with my projects with a new vigour and insight.

I truly recommend attending one of Cassandra’s workshops when you have the opportunity.

“I come away from our sessions feeling energised and empowered.”


“Cassandra’s natural warmth and empathy enables her to establish client trust very quickly.”


“I never met a beautiful soul who finally understood me.”

“In Maoridom for me, I will relate to you as a  Kaitiaki, meaning ‘guardian’. How I became to have you in my path was purely by spiritual contact a nudge an inner tiny voice directing me to you. Cass, you don’t realize the great healing you have in the pit of your soul and you were born to spread compassion. You have those who watch over you and mine in return and yet they all speak the same language to us who are willing to hear and feel.   In such a long time have I never met a beautiful soul who finally understood me who went within and helped me grow from our sessions.”
