Bring a Bestie special available on twin rooms now 

Hepburn Springs, VIC

Do you long to feel safe in your body? 
Do you wish you could be more present + in the moment?
Are you ready to overcome burnout + break up with busy-ness once and for all?

Is it time to come home and land in your unique and sacred body?

Imagine waking up in your quaint country room – warm and cosy and cocooned from the misty forest outside. As your feet touch the ground from your bed you notice them. The place where their skin prickles against the floorboards. You are PRESENT. You are in your body – supple as it is from the previous day’s movement and yoga. The racing thoughts and chest constriction is noticeably absent.
You don’t reach for your phone, but instead you breathe deeply. You look out the window at the winter stillness – leaves dripping with melting frost, birds chirping, earth damp. You feel aligned with the energy of the season – connected internally with the darkness, stillness and hibernation of the outside world. You are going inward, resting – just like the season is asking you to.

You can smell the warm breakfast that awaits – hot porridge, fluffy eggs and luscious coffee. You take a look at the schedule for the day and relish the anticipation of a whole day of nourishment, rest and freedom to be you. You feel the time expand like your body yawning and stretching against the cotton sheets.

When you head downstairs you smile at your new soul sisters. They see you as you. And reflect back to you all you know you are and the potentiality of the woman you are growing into.

You thank yourself for gifting yourself this experience – an opportunity to inhabit your body fully –  free from the limitations and obligations that have been weighing you down.

You are away from home, but you feel more at home than ever.

Homecoming is a transformational retreat to help you:

connect with your body in a new and sacred way, learning what it needs to feel nourished, alive and vital

– reset your nervous system through restorative yoga, nature-based play and meditation practices designed for your womanly body

– recalibrate and reassess your priorities and values in order to gain clarity on your next best steps

– discover feminine wisdom including working with your cycles, the seasons and the moon in order to work + play with more joy + presence.

Your body has been communicating to you every day since you were born.

Over time, you have learned to disassociate from her wisdom, judge her external form and interrupt the flow of energy in order to keep yourself safe.

Our culture has sexualised her, exhausted her, compared her, limited her + made you believe she is unsafe to inhabit.

And yet your body – the vessel for your purpose, your creativity, your passion, your sensuality and the medium through which you are able to experience life’s great gifts – is nothing but resilient and patient.

For you, for us, it is time.

It is time, she is waiting, for you to come home. 

Homecoming is a beautiful, nourishing space to land in your sacred body. A place where:

– you are celebrated and encouraged

– your body is unique, magnificent + safe

– food, movement and interactions with others are pleasurable rather than guilt or anxiety inducing

– afternoon naps are encouraged

 there is no ‘there’ to get to.

You will explore:

feminine yoga practices including hatha, restorative and yin yoga

– mindfulness meditation, yoga nidra, breathing and other nature-based practices designed to reset the nervous system

– women’s wisdom and the power of circle

– using the wisdom of your body to prioritise and manifest your desires

 what inhabiting your body allows you to do on your empowerment journey.

We’ll use the stillness of winter and the moon cycles to rest, connect, nourish and move.

You’ll leave feeling:

– deeply connected to your body and soul

– grateful for the new soul sisters who will have your back no matter what

– deeply aligned with earth and feminine wisdom

– armed with practices you can use at home to overcome anxiety, stress and busy-ness

– firmly and safely in your body with the confidence to articulate your needs and keep firm boundaries

lighter, more joyful and less weighed down by the world

– clear on how you can find more purpose in your life and work

– like you’ve finally come home.
