Or maybe it’s more of an ache in your heart...
Maybe you're already in the waters of your Soul's Journey and wish to dive deeper into embodying more of your Sacred, Creative self.
Wherever you are on your journey, you are being guided to connect to the innate power within you.
A Retreat to Reclaim Your Feminine Power & Creative Essence
Sister, this Retreat is for you if you...
Have been feeling more and more disconnected from yourself and left with a sense of restlessness – physically, emotionally and spiritually...
Yearn for time away from everyday life to get fresh perspectives on old issues and new resources to undertake this important Sacred Journey...
Are unafraid to open yourself to the power of self-discovery so you can make the change you are being called to make.
And maybe until now you've been caught up in the whirlwind of having to *produce* and *perform* every day - at work and at home...
Maybe you've been trying to please others and struggling to stand up and speak your truth…
Maybe you want a way to help the world heal old patterns of fear and conflict and know that it starts with you…
If this is you, then it's time to heed the call of your Inner Wise Woman...
...it's time to Allow yourself to Connect deeply with Nature...
Honor the Natural Rhythms of Mother Earth...
Embody the Goddess and her Teachings...
Participate in Ritual and Ceremony...
and Restore Your Trust in Community…
these are the steps back home to YOUR POWERFUL SELF.
As you allow yourself to take this Journey, you open places inside yourself that have been shut down.
You allow yourself to feel Your Radiance, Your Light…
...to bridge the place where you've been and where your heart and soul desires you to go.
we can heal and transform the old ways of struggle and fear, and return to a celebration of love, and a community that's wise, connected and empowered.
By awakening our Creative Essence and Feminine Power, we help others to do the same...
We can help the world heal.

So when I first found Gymea Retreat last year, I was rejoicing I had such a gem so close to our farm!
Our venue for this Retreat is very special in so many ways… it's secluded location and beauty and tranquility are the perfect nurturing environment I need for the women who come on this transformational Retreat.
Gymea is also a Healing Spa, so we can unwind in the sauna and steam room and plunge in the mineral pool. You can also book yourself in for a relaxing massage in our free time.
And the Gymea Eco Resort is set in naturally undulating rainforest with stunning views of Wollumbin / Mt Warning (UNESCO World Heritage national Park), northern New South Wales, Australia…
Its dramatic peak stands out on the horizon and is the remains of an ancient volcano that created the landscape that stretches hundreds of kilometers to the north and south of where we are meeting. (Big Goddess Creatrix!)
The mountain is a place of cultural and traditional significance to the local Traditional Owners, the Bundjalung people and is a sacred site where ceremonies and initiation rites have been performed for thousands of years.
about Michelle's Retreats...
“Michelle's retreat was more than just a relaxing time away. Through Michelle’s amazing guidance and facilitation, I identified some major blockages in my life and areas that I felt were empty and not fulfilled. I had such a positive experience, I've been to Michelle's retreats 3 years in a row!”
Melitta Marr, NSW Coast, Australia
“I use so many of the techniques and ideas I learnt from Michelle at the Retreat and found they have helped greatly during times of high stress.”
Brenda Davy, Sydney, Australia
“The Retreat was an incredibly freeing experience. I expanded my thinking about my own creativity and deepened my respect for the creative act. I recommend this retreat to all.”
Chrissy Schyff, Uki, Australia
It can be a struggle to carve out the time... to put yourself and your dreams at the top of the 'to do' list... and to set aside the money.
