Zen Your Space

Declutter & Design Workshops with
Cecilia Macaulay 


Shizuka Ryokan, Hepburn Springs

If Minimalism feels a little soulless, and the freedom of chaos is letting you down, Cecilia's nature-based approach to organizing your home might be just the miracle you are hanging out for.  

Zen Your Space workshops will help you declutter, streamline and enchant the spaces in your life, so you can build an ecosystem of success around yourself and your loved ones.

Held in a genuine Japanese guesthouse in Hepburn Springs, you’ll be surrounded by the elegant simplicity of Japanese design, soaking up Shizuka Ryokan’s zen gardens, art and Ikebana, and renowned Japanese cuisine.


Whether you join us for one workshop or the complete series, Cecilia’s teachings will seed a culture of spaciousness and calm in your home, sparking transformations the very next day.


Workshop basics


🍂 Attend one or all of Cecilia’s Zen Your Space workshops, running through September 2022 to March 2023.  Hard-core learners, attending 2 or more events, get a complementary 1 hour design consultation with Cecilia, value $220


🍂 Each workshop is $180pp which includes bottomless green tea, a three course traditional Japanese meal made from seasonal, local ingredients, and a tour of Shizuka Ryokan.


🍂 Workshops are limited to 12 participants. 


🍂 Every workshop participant is offered complimentary support from a Zen Mentor (one of Cecilia’s wonderful interns) in the days and weeks following, because there’s nothing like seizing the post-workshop inspo and making changes that stick!

Playful Pantry,
Fabulous Fridge

Sunday October 23rd 

Our Fridge is an eloquent metaphor for how we let our personal lives become: overcrowded, overcommitted, the flow ain't happening.   If you want to become the designer of your life, fresh and colorful, start with your fridge. Its easier.

Create a Sacred Space at Home 

Sunday January 22nd 2023

In the midst of everyday life, carve out nooks for activities that protect your spirit and honour your body:  Elevated, expansive, and of good omen. From yoga to diary writing to sparkey romance.

Enchanting Work from Home

A Sunday in March 2023

Vitalize the spaces in your home, find focus and flow. With things in the right zone, work becomes absorbing, play becomes rewarding, and you know exactly what to do next 

What do Participants Say?

"You won't usually find me at a decluttering workshop, but something compelled me to book in and see what this Zen Permaculture business is all about.


I'm so glad I did, because Cecilia's teachings go far beyond the kitchen sink. They're about freedom, clarity and personal integrity. They're about designing a beautiful life and living it with intention. And at heart, they're a powerful form of activism. Because when we learn to live with 'enough', we consume less and care more about our home planet.


One of the most rewarding workshops of all time -- not to mention the delicious food and company. Thank you Cecilia"
