The Nourish and Flourish retreat is for you, if you are ready to immerse yourself into a glorious week of nurturing, nourishing, spiritual and cultural workshops and activities with a small group of women. Everything is taken care of so you can relax and be pampered. Nourishing activities for body and mind are on the cards along with delicious meals, yoga, meditation and spiritual activities.
Would you like to develop a mindset for living a life of gratitude and happiness?
Have you lost touch with your resilience and sense of self?
The Good Stuff – How this experience may help you:
Allowing you to reflect on your current life circumstance and see what’s working and what’s not
Reconnecting and valuing yourself
To live gratefully and incorporate gratitude into everyday life, improving your health and happiness
To connect with a different culture and their spiritual practices, reinforcing or helping to create your own spiritual practices
Reconnecting with positive, nurturing aspects of your life as part of self-development and self-care practices
Having an open heart to new experiences and opportunities
To have fun in a small group with other like-minded women
All workshops are designed for your own personal development and are offered in a non-judgemental sacred space, that the group will create together.
The ‘self-care’ workshop sets the scene for the week to focus and prioritize you. We will explore what you are happy with in your life, what you might like to let go off and what you would like to manifest for your future. The aim of this exercise is to explore and name these nurturing components of your life, so they can be used as a resource to sustain and nurture your self-care practices.
Similarly, the ‘connecting with your heart’ workshop begins with a meditation and focuses on the 5 pillars of whole hearted living, including hope, joy, love, gratitude and beauty. You will connect with your heart on a variety of levels: physical, emotional & spiritual, in a safe sacred space and you may make some new discoveries as a result of exploring hope, joy, love, gratitude and beauty.
In the ‘gratitude workshop’ we will explore the meaning of gratitude, living gratefully and ways you can cultivate the practice of gratitude to live a happy, joyful, healthier life. As well you will make your own gratitude bracelet, with each bead symbolizing what you are grateful for.
If you are ready to immerse yourself into a beautiful nourishing week then BOOK NOW! I am very grateful and excited to be sharing this experience with you. Angie xx

Ubud is culture, yes. It’s also home to good restaurants, cafes and streets of shops, many selling goods from the region’s artisans. The local village of Penestanan where we are staying in is home to “The Young Artists of Bali”.
Ubud’s popularity continues to grow, adding on the hoopla created by the bestselling Eat, Pray, Love.
Once we have had our fill of Hippiesville we will head on down to the beach for more massages, rest, dolphin watching, meditation and deeply unwinding before heading back home.
Our Villa is located in the compound of the Bali residence of Indonesia’s famous art and craft guru Warwick Purser. Spread over a three-story building, seven en-suite bedrooms with six double and one twin beds will accommodate us.
The Villa has many little sheltered break out areas over three levels so you can always find a quiet space to read a book or catch up and chat with a friend over coffee.
At the ground floor we will prepare your breakfast in an open-style kitchen and you will be enjoying it facing a tropical garden and a long lap pool. You will find two living rooms – one opened, one closed – and one bedroom. You can even relax at the sauna, which is quite exceptional in Bali.
The first floor gathers three bedrooms – two double and one twin – three salons and a opened terrace. The top floor bedroom – called “The Honeymoon suite” – features a pavilion and open terrace. You will enjoy massages in a quiet atmosphere, close to heaven… On the other side of the pool a small villa houses the additional two bedrooms and small kitchen and living space.
For our last three nights we will drive over the volcano to North Bali and three days at the beach.
Poinciana seaside resort strives to provide a balance of modern comfort with nature, tradition and style in harmony with the incredible beauty and traditional village life for which Northern Bali is well known. The small size and seclusion gives an intimate feel and an atmosphere of peace and tranquility… the perfect place to relax.
Just a 3 hour drive from Denpasar airport and a world away from the hustle and traffic of the South and Ubud, set on the edge of the Bali Sea against a backdrop of scenic mountain ranges, surrounded by small villages and local farms.
Relax by one of the two swimming pools, or while away the hours snorkeling among the coral reefs out front of the resort. Paddle around in our kayaks, or try the massages and beauty treatments offered in the Srimani Spa.
Experience stunning sunrises and sunsets over the sea and fall asleep to soft, rolling waves. We will dine on the terrace overlooking the ocean.
This retreat is for you if you want to:
Connect with yourself, nourish your body and mind, enjoy delicious food, connect with nature, embrace Balinese spiritual practices and pampering.
The retreat will replenish and nourish your body, mind and soul, gently guided by Angie in a supportive sacred space. You will slow down, set your intention for the week together and embrace the space with other like minded women. The hope is that you will leave feeling fulfilled, refreshed and have some ‘tools’ to help you remain grounded and focus on yourself.
This retreat is not for you if ….
Your health and/or mobility prevents you from travelling to a country such as Bali. The footpaths are very uneven and there are stairs at the accommodation.
