"Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I need to listen to my life telling me who I am." Parker Palmer


Rediscover YOU

Do you feel like you're in a constant state of inhale? Holding your breath? Is there tension in your shoulders? 

Do you feel like you've lost your sense of self?

Do you feel like you can't find your footing?

Do you feel you've invested so much of your energy in others that you've lost yourself?

* Close your eyes for a moment, take a breath. -  Inhale - and - Exhale. - What do you notice? What is your body is telling you? *

Hands On - Hearts In is an immersive small group weekend experience for s-l-o-w-i-n-g down, listening to your heart, setting intention and getting hands on, creative, to reconnect with you.

Think of Hands On Hearts In  as a nature retreat, with a side of self exploration, solitude, and tapping into your creative intuition. 

It is not a passive experience, we will be HANDS ON, with our HEARTS IN, a time to switch off from the noise, and truly listen to your inner self and get reacquainted with her wonder and energy.

You will find your exhale, your beautiful, audible, exhale.

It's Yoga. Meditation. Nature Walks. Writing. Drawing. Collage. Intention Setting. Sitting. Movement. Meals. Hugs. Transformation. Connection. Accountability.

Being truly present.

The First Hands On Hearts In Retreat Experience is happening mid 2023.

A series of 4 intimate creative workshops will be taking place throughout 2023.



What IS 'Hands On - Hearts In'?

Hands On - Hearts In Retreat is a weekend immersive experience, including meditation, yoga, sunrises, journaling, creating, nature walks, and tactile experiences to tap into your curious and inquisitive self.
It is  a journey of reconnecting to self, putting yourself first and discovering your innate creative energy.
It is making time, walking and sitting and moving within nature, it is adding to your tool kit of inspiration and building a space for proactivity instead of reactivity.

I'm not sure I can spare a whole weekend is there something for me?

There sure is. 
During the year there will be one day workshops (conveniently held during school hours *wink*). 
The small group workshops, called Hand on Heart centre around tapping into our creative energy, making something for ourselves, to honour who we are.
Think, a short meditation, coffee, or tea if that's your thing, and creative mediums like collage or air drying clay and water paints, even cyanotype photos.

Who is 'Hands On - Hearts In' for?

Hands On - Hearts In is built and facilitated as a 'feminine energy' event, particularly for mothers.
It is for mothers and women who have been so invested in nurturing others that they aren't quite sure who they are anymore.

Do I need to be "arty" to gain value from the weekend?

Not at all. Creativity comes in many shapes.
You may not consider yourself an artist, but you will find you have a creative energy and discover how that manifests and connects to who you truly are, allowing expression of your true self.

What is the duration of 'Hands On - Hearts In'?

Hands On - Hearts In is held over a weekend, from Friday evening until Sunday midday.

What is included?

Accomodation, Workbook, Breakfasts (Saturday and Sunday), Lunch and Dinner (Saturday), Hugs, Accountability follow up.

How big is the small group experience?

Due to the nature of Hands On - Hearts In , the group is capped at no more than 5 attendees. The experience is dependant on nurturing a warm, inviting and safe space.

Where is 'Hands On - Hearts In' held?

Hands On - Hearts In is held in a rural setting, exact venues will be advised with each experience, but will be in close proximity to National Parks to compliment the nature immersion.

Is it a relaxing retreat experience?

It isn't relaxing in so much as it is re-energising.
Hands On - Hearts In is peaceful and calming, with equal parts 'workshop'.
It is a weekend of meditation, and quiet; a time of creation and reflection. It is showing up for yourself with no apologies, and being present.

Yes, there will be downtime, but it will be with purpose and intention.

Is there a payment plan?

Absolutely. Need to arrange a payment plan, send me an email and we can put it all together.
