Women are becoming more successful than ever… but we have nowhere to relax and truly let go.
As a result, we’ve lost connection to ourselves, and we’ve lost connection to our soul – which is literally our LIFE FORCE energy.
It’s no wonder we’re exhausted, burned out, and struggle to tap into our creativity & vision for what’s next in our businesses and in our lives.
We say, “I’m just getting older,” or “I have a good life. I shouldn’t be complaining.”
But deep down, women long to feel life again – to squeeze every drop of joy and pleasure out of our days instead of going through the motions, and then wondering, “Where did the time go?”
You can try a thousand different workout plans, meditate, and even go on holidays. But none of these get to the core of what you really need… to reconnect with your senses, reawaken your body and mind, and come home to yourself.
This is the true source of your energy, vitality, and power as a woman – and when you tap into it, you’ll be astonished at what becomes possible.
When: 4th to 7th SeptemberWhere: Austinvilla Estate Gold Coast
When women deeply relax, we become wise… and a new kind of vision and clarity comes through that we simply don’t have access to in our day-to-day lives.
This is about much more than pampering or “self-care.”
To allow the wisdom and clarity that’s already within you to emerge takes:
If your mind is saying, “I don’t have time to do this,” – that’s exactly the reason you must!
Your “to do” list will still be there when you get home.
You, on the other hand, will never be the same.
The workshop sessions will give you a space to listen, learn, and a whole new world will dawn. Interactive exercises and reflection will create a shift in perspective. You’ll learn new skills & practices to apply in your personal and professional life. Coaching with Serena and Sharon will help you get clarity – and breakthrough anything that’s keeping you stuck.
There’s a reason we host this retreat in a stunning tropical location. The warmth and beauty of the environment – combined with the transformative nature of the retreat – will allow you to deeply relax and unwind in a way you may never have experienced before.
You’ll also have the option to book massages during your stay.
We will also have daily yoga and meditation tailored to your unique body type.
Three gourmet meals per day are included in your investment, as well as snacks. These will be prepared by the staff at the retreat.
We can cater to your dietary needs, provided you let us know in advance.
One of the most fun (and surprisingly transformative) aspects of this retreat is your mini-photoshoot. Each woman will receive a photoshoot, where a female photographer will take stunning, tasteful photos of you embodying your most feminine self. The final edited photos will be yours to keep and use as you wish.
In addition to 4 days of workshop sessions, your retreat experience includes a surprise excursion.
