Date: November 11 & 12, 10.00am – 4.30pm  Venue: The Monastery, 15 Cross Rd, Urrbrae

Do you find yourself asking where did the year go?
Are you feeling that an opportunity to draw breath is well and truly overdue?
Have you longed for some “me” time to reflect and recharge your tired mind, body and spirit?

Then, I invite you to imagine yourself, relaxing in a tranquil and healing environment, surrounded by gorgeous gardens, delighting in mouth-watering food, engaging in uplifting conversation, being immersed in a restorative sound bath, learning the soothing art of self-massage, and so much more.

Are you, at this moment starting to feel a sense of calm coupled with a tingle of readiness to take time for yourself?

As women, we give so much of ourselves to others, both, in our professional and personal lives. We often put ourselves last or perhaps not even consider our own needs with any great seriousness.

This two-day workshop, is for you, to press the pause button, take time to breathe, regroup and consciously prepare yourself for a fabulous and fulfilling 2018.

For this workshop, we offer you a wonderful line up of accomplished facilitators whose skills range from psychology, human resources with a twist, art, massage and vibrational therapies. Details of our facilitators are on the next page.

We look forward to welcoming you to the REFLECT, RECHARGE & REBOOT EXPERIENCE for FABULOUS WOMEN

Joan Carpenter

Joan is passionate about helping people learn to massage. Another part of this, is that she loves to support women to build connection with themselves and to grow in self-care and self-love. Massage is one way to make this connection, through touch, relieving tension and letting go of stress. Letting go, gently, and mindfully. She will show you how easy it is to do self-massage through your clothes. That way, you can use this technique to relieve physical tension regardless of where you might be. You will experience relaxation through self-massage at the workshop. Breathe deep and seek peace as you let the body and mind reset itself. You won’t be disappointed.

Tanya Potter

Tanya is a Wellbeing Facilitator. Her passion is to create an open-hearted space which allows for each person to feel welcomed and important. You will be treated to a BLISS Soundbath where you will be immersed in the magical sounds of singing bowls, crystal bowls, gongs and therapeutic percussion.This deeply relaxing experience is relatively new in Australia but has been practised for thousands of years within the eastern cultures. While you are laying down in comfort, your whole being is finding balance on all levels: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. BLISS Soundbath participants feel more relaxed, alert and have more clarity in their thinking after this magical experience.
