This retreat is quite simply for busy women who need a break from doing.

It will help you to move out of overwhelm, and move out of being-busy-being-busy so you can take back control of who you are and what you're creating in your life.

A weekend in peaceful surrounds to unwind , stop doing and allow yourself to re-energise.

Your mid-year reset.

 Take charge of who you are and what you're creating in your life.

This retreat is for you if:

  • You're in need of rest and relaxation
  • Time in nature helps to calm and clear your mind
  • You need to restore balance and harmony in your life
  • You know your soul wants you to simply stop for a few days (don't even have to cook!)

Do you tick any of these boxes?

  • You feel exhausted and out of sync
  • You feel stretched in too many directions and need to re-focus
  • You're sick of the day-to-day grind and want more from your life.
  • You are craving time in nature to re-set and re-boot
  • You don't sleep well with a constantly busy mind or anxiety
  • You want to learn to manage your energy and your time to find more FLOW and JOY in your daily life

Do you need to slow down and create a sustainable pace to life?  Then this retreat is for you!

If you're constantly over doing it then you are borrowing energy form your future self - and that is not sustainable or enjoyable.

The Deep Winter Retreat will give you a break form doing so that you can connect with who you really are and what you really want in your life.  It will help you connect to a sustainable energy source where you will find more flow, fulfilment and enjoyment in your everyday life.

Here's what's included.

Start the weekend by unwinding and unravelling

Start the weekend with  yoga breathing, chanting, guided meditation and yoga nidra (yoga sleep) to help you unwind and begin to switch off from all the doing you've been doing.

Morning Yoga and Meditation Classes

Feel calmer and stronger as we continue to unwind and declutter.   Easy flow yoga classes suitable to all levels of experience to get your body moving, clear your mind and get back to feeling like you again.

Womens Craft Circle

Find that feeling of a greater sense of purpose.  Gathering together to create something meaningful and useful is an active meditation and all but a lost art of motherhood and will reconnect you with that feeling of having a greater purpose in life (more than the dishes and driving everyone around).  Making something with your hands in a group creates an energy of feeling part of the solution.  Contributing through talking, listening, reflecting and solving world problems (big and small).  (2018 we created a woven pendant.  2019 women's circle yet to be announced)

Drumming Circle

Sure to be the highlight of the week-end, a Drumming workshop and meditation which will sooth your nervous system, continue the process of letting go of your busy-ness and find flow and joy in your contributing to the music.  In being instead of doing we become energised from the deepest parts of ourselves.

Vegetarian Indian Food

A week-end of tasty and healthy vegetarian indian food - and you don't have shop, cook or think!  Just release the mental load of motherhood and enjoy the company of adults who get what you're going through.

Thank you for organising the retreat!! It was such a great experience.

There’s something so powerful being around women with different stories, sharing their experiences of life and mothering with such raw honesty.

All over copious amounts tea!

I enjoyed being in nature and getting a chance to train my monkey mind to rest. Those silent bush walks were blissful!!

Overall a great success


Thanks so much!

Could following the cycle of the moon be the missing piece of the puzzle you've been looking for?

Are you feeling exhausted, out of sync and quite frankly over it all?  Do you wonder why this motherhood thing is just so god damn hard?  Are you telling yourself "There must be a better way?"

Well, you're right.  Many women are feeling this way because they are missing an important piece of the puzzle.

How does the Moon Cycle affect women?

Like Day and Night - Wouldn't you agree that you energy and mood is affected by what time you wake up and what time you go to bed?

Like Winter and Summer - And don't the seasons affect the choices that you make and how you live?  For example, the food and activities and routines are different in winter and summer?

What if I told you the moon has the same influence on you?  When we are out of connection with the moon cycle and it's phases, we also feel out of sync and low energy or anxious and stuck in being busy.

The first place to start with observing the moon cycles is to take some time out with the dark moon.  It's a powerful time for women to gather and to rest.  Before electricity and tampons and the pill, women would generally get their period at this time, and would come together to just BE INSTEAD OF DO.

The Deep Winter Retreat is scheduled with the Dark moon, so that you can experience a deeper level of rest, connection and rejuvenation.

Learn more about working with the moon cycles in this interview with my client, Tara Winters as she shares her experience of connecting in to the rhythm of the moon.

I found the sessions relaxing, calming and it helped my day to day life to be more focused and less stressful.


Tara makes meditation so appealing. Her soothing down to earth approach makes everyone so welcome and accepted.


Tara has helped me find ways to create the best and most meaningful life for everyone in the family. Highly recommend.


Perhaps best of all, her wonderful classes are about real women... there is no pretension! You can come to class tired, in daggy clothes and know that no one is judging you. I always leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and usually having had a good chat and giggle with other mums. I can't recommend Tara highly enough.


Drum4Fun is so amazing and incredibly addictive & once you start you won't want to stop.  It takes you to another place and the everyday stresses of life are drummed away.  Michele and Karen are a magnificent duo that know how to teach in a very easy, fun and exciting way.


With her extensive skills, Kirrilee has the ability to bring a certain magic traditional crafting techniques which can be transformative and inspiring.  She exudes a warm, capable and supportive energy which is encouraging to people of all ages and experience.


Swamis Retreat - what an inspirational and worthwhile treat it is to visit this amazing place. Each time one enters the gates and start winding down the valley you instantly know you are going somewhere spiritual and special.
