find your calm & fill your cup. 


Book your retreat

 Life is busy - it can be difficult to slow down enough to fill your cup.

 Do you crave a break from your usual routine, your mobile phone and your chattering mind?  


Imagine...stepping away from your devices, from your responsibilities and your worries for 3 glorious days.‚Äč


Imagine...having your whole weekend planned for you, and all meals prepared by a private chef.


Imagine...what you will discover about yourself in that space: your inner peace, your calm, your clarity and your answers. 

I create the time and the space for you to find your calm...for a whole weekend, in the most beautiful spaces in nature.

With your entire schedule planned out for you (with plenty of spare time too) so you don't need to THINK, you don't need to plan. Our private chef will keep your belly very happy with healthy and delicious meals. 

Upcoming dates

Join us for a weekend focussed on YOU...you'll leave the mountain feeling like you've had an emotional and mental over-haul. 

Step away from your phone, your responsibilities and chores.

Be immersed in nature, yoga, meditation, breath work and maybe even a massage!

All bedrooms are single so you won't be sharing with anyone else (there are a couple of twin-share rooms if you'd like to share with a friend or partner). 

They found their calm...


Join us in the rainforest at Springbrook 

  • Just 45min from the Gold Coast, 1.5hrs from Brisbane and a few hours from the Sunshine Coast

  • Retreat away from technology, from small-talk, from cooking, cleaning and planning, and just BE.

  • Yoga classes are totally optional, you don't have to go to any classes and still reap the rewards and the benefits of the retreat

  • All yoga/meditation classes are suitable for complete beginners...a wonderful introduction to yoga and meditation.  

  • All bedrooms are single rooms (with shared bathroom). There are a couple of ensuite rooms  with a double bed or 2 single beds. 
  • In your free time you might re-discover those lost simple pleasures like: sketching, colouring in, lying in the grass and finding animal shapes in the clouds, gazing off into the distance at the majestic view from the waterfall, take a nap or read a book under a tree.

Our private chefs....

Our meals are made with a whole lot of love by our private chefs. It is such a treat to not have to think about or plan your meals for a few days. All our meals are delicious vegetarian and we can cater for GF, lactose free and vegan

Sound Healing...

Dan will be joining us on retreat to guide you through a very special "Sound Healing" session using his centuries old Tibetan Singing Bowls. Sound healing works profoundly on mental and emotional levels. Reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, plus balancing and clearing the mind leads to a renewed sense of purpose, well-being and calm. 


The most thoughtful of gifts...

Many of our guests on weekend and one-day retreats are there because a very caring friend or family member realised they need some time out. Life can get overwhelming and a retreat can put things back into balance again. 

We can send you a beautiful gift voucher presented in a gold card, for you to give to them, or we can email you a digital copy. They have 12 months to use the voucher on any retreat they like. 

You can choose a dollar amount or specify the retreat you'd like to book them in for, or send us a message and we can tailor the perfect retreat experience for your loved one.
