Sparky & Shady School Holiday Workshops



The ‘Sparky and Shady Two Day Family Workshop’ is only offered twice a year to a limited number of people! If you want your family to be included with the 64 this summer at Aanuka Beach Resort, you need to buy your tickets now before they sell out! (Go to the bottom of this page for online ticket purchase.)

We all want empowered children who have the knowledge and strategies they need to make the difference on earth they were born to make! Especially when this comes hand in hand with the promise of happier children who understand themselves and who have the skills to manage their body, thoughts, emotions and actions. That means calmer, more loving and more fulfilling family lives for all of us! Yippee!

‘Sparky and Shady’ took 23 years to create and perfect. It is has been trialled, tested and recently endorsed by a clinical psychologist. You will not find anything like it anywhere else! This simple, effective and non religious family program is totally ‘child friendly’. It uses two imaginary characters, ‘Sparky’ our loving side and ‘Shady’ our scared side to teach kids: who they are, why they are here and how their body, personality, thoughts and feelings all work together so they can cope with problems, believe in themselves and follow their dreams. That’s ultimately how they’ll make their difference.

By attending this two day workshop with your children you get a once off opportunity to empower the child within you as well as gaining all the knowledge and strategies you’ll need to support your children through the highs and lows of growing up. Come along and do something ‘life-changing’ for you and your family!

    Hi Alison,
    Thanks for putting this up – I have updated since this version and am actually offering “Buy two, get one free” to get more bums on seats so if you are happy to sit and paste the current page from that would be fantastic!

    Love Kathy
