OUR Program

Experience & LEARN  powerful NEW TECHNIQUES 

10 week workshop series

 10 weeks, 2 hours each session

 Creating your peace and balance after an abusive relation ship, workshop series for women   
We are proud and excited to offer a ten week group program for women who have experienced domestic or family abuse, or other types of gendered abuse. Our innovative program comprises ten weekly workshops where our attendees get to learn techniques and strategies for exploring, relieving and managing stress, anxiety and related issues, education about the mind and body and it's responses to stress and trauma, and a place in our supportive connected community environment.
The program introduces Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping) as an easy to learn and use self administered tool for every day use, right when and where it's needed, in the moment that stress hits day to day.
One of our key objectives is for women to be able to be self reliant for their emotional wellness. We introduce meditation and mindfulness as complementary practices and begin to integrate self care as an essential every day activity.
Our program also offers access to personal sessions for each participant to utilise if and when issues arise that may require a private space to work through with a practitioner. It is common for traumatic and difficult memories to arise during group work that need some deeper personalised exploration and release. We consider these sessions a vital safety net that offers reassurance that the women are fully supported and feel safe to express themselves. 
*Personal sessions available during the 10 week program, outside of group sessions, and at practitioner availability.

DURATION: 10 weeks, 2 hours per week

A few words from the hearts of some of the women who have attended our previous retreats.

"This was so incredibly beautiful and empowering I would like to do it again! :) I can honestly say I feel lighter, joyful, hopeful, and peaceful :) And best of all I am able to feel Okay in my skin and who I am and my journey. I feel like this is the final step in my sealing and healing from the journey of the last 15 years! And I will be using the lessons and strategies (EFT, Matrix, Yoga, Massage etc) in my life from now on."
E. from Brisbane

"This exceeded all expectations, lots of learning, understanding and acceptance (self and others). Bonds with other participants was very strong, very healing. Surprised by real connections. I am actually a beautiful woman, deserving of love and happiness. Understanding and working on traumas clears the pathway to the real me. Social connection with others was/is awesome!"

I have so much love and gratitude to all the wonderfully kind and beautiful people who are involved in making this happen.The vibration I have felt here is so magical and I will always carry this feeling with me."

"Having lived in the darkness for too long, this retreat has helped me to open the door and let the light in.
I actually feel like crying writing this...
My soul feels very grateful! I cannot thank you enough for this opportunity. I proudly say with my hand on my heart that I will get through this, and not just because of our sessions but because a group of women (my tribe) absolutely believe in me.
I am worthy! I AM WORTHY!! And I thank you for giving that back to me!!"
