Your SELF CARE adventure awaits!
Isn’t it time for you to get away from the day to day hassles and immerse yourself in the things that bring you joy?
Doesn’t your body and soul need time to relax, unwind and repair?
If you’re like most women, your answer is a resounding “YES!”

When we really focus on what’s important in our lives, most people would agree that health is their #1 priority. But while many people focus on a physical level, this retreats will support you to address and maintain your emotional and psychological health and well-being as well as giving your body time to rest and rejuvenate?

Its time to develop a strategic plan to create a calm internal environment and a strong emotional core – you’ve earned it!

“Hi Tammie, Thank-you for a wonderful week and for sharing your insight with all of us. Your warm, calm and funny approach was so relatable. The information you shared is adding so much to my life and I can’t put into words just how grateful I am. I am doing daily meditations and my morning walk has gone from another opportunity to beat myself up to a mindful and relaxing walk taking in all the blessings laying out in front of me. My dog is happier too, as I let her sniff the trees and posts for longer than I used to. I have bought mindfulness in to everything I do and the love and confidence I’m feeling is undebatable. I am more connected, focused and life has slowed down. I am no longer doing everything with a tight heart.” Sue  2015

“The retreat and training was presented in a practical, humorous and down to earth way in which I could relate too. I also loved being with like minded people for a week, and value the friendships that I have gained from the retreat. I have my vision board on my fridge and loved this exercise during the retreat. It is a daily reminder of what I have gained and want to impart into my life moving forward. Thank you so much for such a beautiful week – I was truly blessed by this experience. I cannot tell you how much I needed this and how good it was for my soul. Words will never do this justice :-).” Karen 2015 

“The location was amazing, a beautiful country setting, so peaceful and quiet and I could hear the cows mooing at night – lovely ! Had no trouble finding the place and it was a beautiful relaxing drive so it gets you in the right headspace even before you arrive. Scrupulously clean and very comfortable accommodation – great pillows. Breakfast sitting on the patio soaking up the amazing views and the peace and being visited by a bunny – perfect !

The food was amazing: plentiful and delicious and the staff were friendly.

It was a great bunch of women who all seemed to ‘jell’ together and get into the spirit of the weekend and to top it off, Tammie the facilitator is experienced, funny (love the travel stories) , knowledgeable and organized so the whole weekend just flowed.

Being a counselor myself and working in community services the mindfulness concept wasn’t new to me but I still enjoyed the sessions and got so much out of it and practical applications so I Can Do It !!

Having a bad back relieved by the restorative yoga, even though I couldn’t manage all the poses the ones I could do helped and have reaffirmed my need to do this practice regularly.

Completing an art collage of my ‘wishes” from the weekend and how I can do this in my life one step at a time. Step one: book further retreats !!” – Judi 2015 

“Great accommodation, yummy food, loved the juicing machine, swimming pool, butterflies and coffee xx  Wonderful meditations, yoga, dance and videos!” – Ildika 2016 

“The accommodation package was good value for money – well-appointed rooms, excellent food and friendly staff. The location itself is very peaceful and this added to the experience.” – Anne 2016 

Waking up and jumping in the pool. Tammies wonderful yoga classes which were spot on and Sandy’s awesome art classes! Tammie is so lovely and personable that she instantly felt to me like an old friend. The way she led the group made us all feel so comfortable and safe in her care. I would love to supply some constructive criticism but alas I came away 100% happy with my experience. Kat – 2017

The venue was very comfortable & well appointed, the setting was peaceful, the food was plentiful and delicious, the staff were attentive and unobtrusive. The workshops were congruent in aim and process to awakening the senses, and very enjoyable overall with plenty of variety. Tammie is a very effective facilitator, her processes and skills training were congruent with the objectives of the retreat. Her pacing, gently humour, authenticity and warmth help create a safe and caring environment. – Pam – 2017
