Take time for your self-care this year instead of operating from the space of survival mode. You’d love to get away for the weekend to start the new year on the best foot but all the responsibilities seem never-ending. (Including the giant pile of laundry, that won’t wash itself, the million other errands or the 50 emails that you still haven’t responded to!)
What if you could get away for a few meaningful hours
without leaving home? From the comfort of your own bed!
Just shut the door and be by yourself with a group of like-minded women who work hard and just need a little “me” time to nourish, restore and renew
body, mind and heart.
Don't put off your wellbeing any more. Now is exactly the right time to pause and restore to be in better flow.
If not now, when?
Join us for an immersive experience of restorative renewal and nourishment for a few hours on 28-30 January.
This virtual live experience teaches you how to restore, nourish, and recover your vitality, enjoyed in the supportive company of a small group of lovely women.
Is your chance to learn how to experience nourishing relaxation
and restorative foods that can help improve your mood
and mental acuity leading to more productivity and better balance.
The practices you will learn in this immersive experience can also help ease chronic fatigue, stress and pain that can occur with exhaustion, burn out and chronic illnesses.
Take this time to replenish and be more focused, energised and mindfully present for yourself for the year ahead.
