Mindfulness Weekend Retreat - Hepburn Springs -VIC

Live it Well in 2017


Weekend Retreat | 3 February - 5 February, 2017

Checkin anytime from 2:00pm Friday. Concludes 3:00pm Sunday

“Life is short, live it well.” Twenty-eight years ago, Maggie’s dad signed off a letter to her with those words, not long before dying of an unexpected heart attack.

We all know in theory that life is short, but how can we truly make the most of it and “live it well” amidst the losses, changes, and other twists & turns that invariably come our way? Not to mention external expectations to be forever available and “connected” via devices, and internal hard-wiring designed for survival, not ease?

Maggie & Nik are so excited to be offering this second weekend retreat together, this time around the theme of “living life well.” As we ease into another new year, this will be the perfect opportunity to take a break from external commitments and distractions to drop below into what is truly meaningful for each of us, and how we intend to honour and support this in 2017 and beyond? Living with purpose and on purpose.

The retreat will once again take place in the beautifully refurbished 1920s Continental Guesthouse, perched high in the bushland of Hepburn Springs, and just across the road from the Goldfields Walking Trail. The retreat will mostly be silent, but with some times for connecting & sharing with other participants, including the Friday night meal on arrival. Guidance will be provided by Nik & Maggie as we practice mindfulness in movement, yoga and stillness. All food – delicious & nutritious vegetarian meals – will be prepared by a local caterer specialising in slow food. There will also be time to visit the Springs, walk in the bush, enjoy a massage, or simply rest.

The retreat will officially commence around 6pm with dinner on the Friday, but participants are invited to make the most of the opportunity to check in anytime from 2pm & enjoy a trip down to the Hepburn Bathhouse, a bushwalk or book into a massage at the Guesthouse. We will finish by 3pm Sunday.
