We are very excited to have Ganga Karen Ashworth, as our keynote presenter.

 

Ganga Karen Ashworth

Voice Healer, Singer and Author Ganga Karen Ashworth B.Mus.Ed. (Sydney Conservatorium of Music) has supported thousands of people to heal and transform their lives. Described as having “the voice of an angel”, Ganga is empowering a new generation of women who are living and authentically contributing their unique expression to the evolution of our world towards health, wholeness, peace, happiness and harmony.

Nurture & Nourish

 

Women as daughters, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, partners and friends we give to others. It is in our very nature to be givers and carers. To give fully with unconditional love, without resentment, irritability and anger we too must receive.

 

This weekend retreat is an opportunity for you to explore the relationship between giving and receiving, to delve into the cyclic nature of the inward and outward and to discover ways to nurture and nourish yourself in the busyness of daily life. 

 

Join your sisters at an awesome bush retreat near Pigeon House Mountain to swim in the river; to stretch and expand with daily yoga, relaxation and meditation; feast on nourishing organic vegetarian food; dance on mother earth; sing to the heavens and sit in sacred circle to gain and share women’s wisdom.
