Empowered Women Day Retreat

Breaking Through & Embracing Wholeness

Mission House, Bilgola Beach

Saturday 21 October & Sunday 22 October 9am-5pm

Come away from these day retreats with a deeper understanding of who you are. Gain tools to build courage to stand in your power and strength to forge your hearts path.

Saturday’s Retreat is focused on Breaking Through the old thought patterns, habits and beliefs that don’t support a life of abundance, creativity, harmony and love. Sunday is focused on Embracing Wholeness by accessing tools that can help you to live in your present moment, connected to a deep and strong flow of gratitude in your heart.

Both days are focused on building courage to live your life in the fullest expression of your Self. These retreats are stand alone days so come to one or both.

Give yourself this opportunity to step into new growth, to harness your feminine power and embrace wholeness.

Ritual and ceremony will be weaved into two days that will invite you to reconnect with yourself and come to know yourself more deeply.

Come and enjoy a space where you feel supported to dive within. This depth will be balanced with fun and lightness so you come away feeling inspired and buoyed to implement changes in your every day life.

Be lead in meaningful YOGA classes and MEDITATION that will be based around the intention of letting go what is limiting you and breaking through and creating new healthy patterns that see you living a life of abundance and meaning.

Be inspired by workshops focused on how to live in your power and how to be present and mindful. Gain clarity around the tools you can use to become a master of your life.

Relax around a table full of meaningful conversation and discover new friendships as you enjoy a delicious healthy organic feast for lunch.

My life’s motto is “Live the life you love… Love the life you live”. It’s a joy to share this lust for life in the retreats I run. However to get to this point I had to make some major changes in my life. It took breaking free from a destructive relationship and releasing my victimization mindset to finally embrace my life and fall in love with who I was. In 2011 I bought a one-way ticket out into the world. I spent the next 12 months traveling in India, Africa and Europe, growing, learning and expanding. This travel changed me, I felt more alive than ever before, it helped me discover new places inside myself, and ignited a desire to explore. I knew then that I wanted to lead retreats and conscious travel around the world. It lit a desire within me for everyone to experience this feeling of deep connection that you access when you step out of your routine and into the world. Imagine a world where people reach out and connect, support and help one another. I’ve run 11 retreats in Bali, Mexico and Australia in the past 5 years. I am continually humbled to be able to witness people’s personal transformation during these retreats. My ultimate goal is to help people find the unique light within them and shine that light brightly in the world.
