Is this retreat for you?
What is a retreat for? Is it just a trendy term that is used in marketing to attract you to an event?
This Real Life Women’s retreat was created when I had a kind of whisper in my ear that said ” Return to Self” and I realised that somewhere in the maze of raising children there was a part of me that had come up for air.
It was like I had woken up. Suddenly attuned to my own self again. To my existence. To the woman, I truly am inside. It was the woman who was strong enough to speak my mind, and what was in my heart.
It was the woman who was more fearless…. more able to believe in myself and my abilities… the woman who could actually bring value to the world and actually acknowledge to myself that this was so… WOW, that was the longest of all discoveries.
So… I have created this retreat with my own journey in mind… hoping that in some way I could make the traversing of the journey back to self a little less difficult and a little more supported.
Do you find yourself struggling to value yourself?
Do you find your emotions overwhelming?
Are there lonely moments?
Or are you excited and looking forward to a new phase of life?
This weekend retreat if suitable for any woman who finds there is no time to slow down, to pause and consider who you truly are inside, what you want and how you want your life to be. This is for women who have had a period of time where you have disconnected from your true self either through parenting years, or career years or some other reason. You have found that this is your time to come out of that phase of life and enter a new phase of inspired living.
Maybe you have been feeling:
A feeling as if you are on the brink of something new and exciting
A change in your role and hence your identity
Children moving into another life stage
A bit ‘lost’ like you have no direction
A busy mind
A creative mind with lots of ideas for your new phase and yet no clear pathway
Like you cannot express what you truly need or who you truly are
Like you are not ‘enough’
Time to Pause
This retreat is a pause in life for YOU. It is time to reflect to actually stop long enough to listen to the wisdom from within.
This is also a time to reconnect to your spiritual self – whatever that is for you and to reconnect with that part of yourself.
This is an opportunity to open a doorway to something new for you, a new start, a new way of being.

This retreat is an opportunity for depth of connection which nurtures vulnerability and subsequent strength so this retreat will be limited to 8-10 women which will support the nature of the retreat and give maximum value to participants.
With love and support
