Retreats for August-September 2022

Time to look ahead, towards the Spring…

It’s been a cold winter for many of us, and just the thought of warmer weather makes us want to start over and shed some of the bad habits we may have developed over the winter. Is it just me? This has been the coldest winter I can remember, or have you been feeling it too?

It’s very exciting to see that over the next couple of months we have retreats set in every state of Australia, as well as in Bali, New Zealand and even as far as the Dominican Republic!

So let’s dream a little… or better still, take action, and book one of these fantastic retreats.
