Connect To Your Calm...
Share a truly unique experience with a loved one, a weekend of deep connection and calm, through meditation, gentle yoga, maybe a massage in front of the fireplace... and periods of delicious silence to absorb it all.
We have partnered with one of our very favourite venues "Royston House" to host these special experiences.
Perched on a hill, the sprawling homestead has a stunning 180 degree view of the McPherson range in the Scenic Rim (approx 1.5hr from Brisbane and the Gold Coast)
What is a "Semi-Silent" Retreat?
If you have ever been to a yoga class you might be familiar with that blissful feeling of deep relaxation and calm at the end. Throughout your weekend this state will be extended for you to enjoy it a bit longer. For eg, an afternoon class might finish at 5.30pm and then there is silence until the 6.30pm dinner-bell. So after the class you can continue feeling into that meditative state whilst watching a stunning sunset or sitting in front of the roaring fire in the lounge room.

Fill Your Cup...
Do you feel like you spend so much time looking after others and not enough time caring for YOU?
Before my life as a retreat and yoga studio owner, I founded and ran for 15 years, 3 Day Spas on the Gold Coast. My specialty was bringing groups together for very indulgent Pamper Days...and for the last 8 years I have taken "self-indulgence" to a whole other level with weekend immersions into silence, self-reflection and connection. Giving people the space and tools to slow down in this so very fast paced world.
Teaching people how to easily meditate is a very great love of mine and the results are life-changing for so many people. I look forward to going on a journey into silence with you!
