Every fortnight, usually around the new moon or full moon, Mindful Immersion hosts a Women’s Weekend Retreat. The venue is usually Yarramalong Camping and Outdoor Recreation Centre, Charlwood, Queensland.
Guests arrive on Saturday morning at 8.30am to find their accommodation (tents) are already set up and ready to go; they bring their own pillow, sleeping bag, mattress. Guests are welcome to bring their own tent if they prefer.
The retreat is fully catered – delicious vegetarian wholefood and organic where possible, guests need not bring food or beverages, but can bring extra water and snacks if they wish.
The campsite has an amenities block, approx 5 mins walk, so remember to bring your toiletries, towels and thongs and a torch.
Women will be guided in meditation, a contemplative bushwalk, creative expression using mandalas, rock painting, poetry, and may like to receive a therapeutic treatment at no extra cost.
Each retreat hosts a complimentary health practitioner – such as Massage Therapist, Kineisologist, Reiki Practitioner, and of course Herbalist Shona Churchill of Hedgewitch Herbs.
After enjoying a campfire cooked meal, the energy of women is harnessed in a drum circle. Drums are provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Drumming is an incredibly strong form of self expression, a creative outlet for stress relief; the larger the circle the greater the connection to the sisterhood.
If you would like a break from technology, daily stressors, or simply an opportunity to reconnect with the Earth in a mindful manner, contact us to book your place. Retreats are generally limited to 12 people, but group bookings can be negotiated.
Bookings close one week before the retreat. Places are limited so you need to be in quick!
Next retreat date is 8th – 9th December 2018. On the weekend nearest the New Moon, all women are welcome!
