Weekend Retreat | 28 - 30 August 2020 | $ Various
With Maggie O'Shea and Nik Welsh
Our big, busy lives can easily leave us feeling stressed, overwhelmed or “wired, yet tired.”
This unique retreat offers permission to really stop, rest and re-connect with what really
matters in mind, body and heart. Although formal proceedings don’t begin until the Arrival
Dinner at 6pm, participants are strongly encouraged to make this a 3-day Retreat and
arrive in time to enjoy lunch at a local cafe in Daylesford or Hepburn before checking in
around 2:30pm and enjoying a bush walk, a group excursion down the hill to the
Bath-house, or staying on-site for a massage or the unique Turkish Steam Hammam
experience. Pampering the body first is the perfect way to help the nervous system relax so
that we can get the most from a restorative weekend of meditation and silence.
In addition to the guided yoga and meditation sessions, there will be long hikes along the
beautiful Goldfields Walking Trail, delicious vegetarian meals (including yummy desserts,
cakes and good quality teas and coffee), and unstructured times to relax in front of one of
the log fires in the beautifully refurbished 1920s Continental Guesthouse
Nik and Maggie both teach from a trauma-sensitive mindfulness orientation so this secular
retreat will feature choice and flexibility.
The fee includes all meals, teaching and accommodation. Massages or steam treatments on
site can be arranged for an additional fee. The retreat will finish by 3pm on the Sunday.
