Women's Retreat

Nurture & Nourish Women's Retreat

A bush retreat designed to Nurture & Nourish YOU with organic vegetarian food, yoga, relaxation & meditation, sacred women's circle, dancing & singing workshops.

  • Date:  3pm Friday 18th March to 2pm Sunday 20th March
  • Cost: $400 Camping  $425 Dorm (all inclusive)
  • Where:  Clyde River Retreat  (40km South West of Milton on the South Coast)

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.
