Family Constellation Workshop

Family Constellation Workshop

Burt Hellinger formulated the philosophy known as Family Constellations during his time as a Jesuit priest in South Africa. Over many years he was able to learn from the Zulu people where he witnessed the power of their worldview, ubuntu, translated “I am because we are.”

During this retreat you'll have the opportunity to explore the areas where your soul blueprint (your astrology and numerology map) clashes and diverts from the paths of others.

We take an experiential approach that meets mind, body, soul and spirit through a range of modalities and different activities.
A two day retreat to help you work through your family dynamics.

Rejuvenate in a Blue Mountains bushland setting.

Women’s Retreat NSW

Women’s Retreat NSW

It could be argued that the path of the feminine helps us enlarge our existence to incorporate that of higher purpose, the poetic, the path of the heart, exploration of the soul and a mythic orientation.

One of the great tragedies of a patriarchal culture dominating for so long is that the feminine approach has been devalued and overlooked.

Our Maiden to Mother Retreat provides an initiation into healthy adulthood in order to prepare for our golden years, that of eldership or cronehood. It is designed for those aged 19-40.

In addition to this program, we offer a number of retreats designed to help you navigate each developmental phase leading up to elderhood.

Take a look at our webpage to learn more about this program as well as our women's wellness retreats and women's healing retreats.

*Our midweek female retreats saves $50 off weekend programs

Health Retreat Blue Mountains

Health Retreat Blue Mountains

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “The first wealth is health.” As the Western world has prioritized material wealth, physical health has declined.

The food we eat determines how we feel, look, and think. Having moved away from relying on growing our own food individuals now have to navigate an industry that often exploits cravings and emotional responses in order to maximize profits over wellbeing. Eating mindfully improves energy levels, brain health, and moods, fosters a clear mind and supports a healthy weight range while reducing the risk of chronic health conditions.

Poet, Maya Angelou said “When women take care of their health, they become their best friend.” Good health is intertwined with rest, balanced stress levels, social connection, exercise and many other facets of life. This approach offers insights that will help individuals nurture a healthy body, mind and emotional state to live more integrated.

This approach is suitable for those looking to take a holistic approach to their health and wellbeing, individuals wanting to explore how their beliefs and conditioned habits lead to health behaviors, those wanting an approach to weight loss that is much deeper than focusing on diet and exercise, individuals looking for a health reboot and space to detox and get practical help designing a better future, and people committed to personal and spiritual development.
