“Silence is Golden” – Reflection & Growth in Solitude Virtual Retreat

Date: 18th December

Our Solitude Retreat is a wonderful mix of restorative breathing practices, deep wisdom, silence, and powerful guided meditations.

When you spend time alone you have no one else to talk to or share your thoughts with. You only have yourself to contemplate and converse with – and you never know what sorts of things will pop into your head until you’re alone with your thoughts. Have you ever spent more than a few minutes alone with no one to talk to? I have to tell you, it’s pretty interesting what starts to happen.

You will allow yourself to reflect on this year and the lessons learnt, hence, planting the seeds of growth for the New Year. Contemplating what will be brought with you and what will be left. Aligning yourself with new understanding of who you are.

Whether you are a meditation guru in search of a new challenge or someone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, there are many long term benefits of a silent meditation retreat that can help address your wellness needs.

Find out how absolute, undisturbed silence can benefit your relationship with those around you and help you re-establish a healthier relationship with yourself.

We are opening our virtual doors again to the community with the opportunity to spend an extended period of silence together. Participants are guided through a series of mindful movement and sitting meditations with an opportunity to reflect upon and share the experience with fellow participant at the end.

Cost: $96USD

Vibrate At Your Highest Frequency Retreat

Date: 9th January – 26th February

Normally a 7-day in-person retreat programme focusing on a chakra each day but now really feels like the time to offer this exceptionally healing programme as a live online 7-week programme where we will focus on each chakra for a week.

The chakra system holds all the magic for me and when we really connect to our own energy centres we REALLY step into the role of being our own SELF HEALER.

There will be 4 live online classes per week and 3 workshops over the 7 week period alongside an open clinic once a week for checking in and support.

The invitation is to join a group of aligned Soul Adventurers to collectively rise and raise our frequencies together …

It feels more important than ever that we fully step into our sovereignty, that we remember our innate ability to heal ourselves, that we have the tools to deepen or connection and that we have the experience of the fullness of ourselves.
