Are you looking to unplug, de-stress and be more present … more positive about life? Do you want to boost your confidence and really explore creativity, self-healing and connection with like-minded women?

Come along for a women’s retreat for an experiential day of healing rhythms circle, sound bath, story dolls, creativity and connection with like-minded women. Tickets are at Trybooking.

Drum up wellness

Explore rhythm, harmony and mindfulness through the power of group drumming, chanting and movement, a holistic approach to therapeutic group music-making. Be drawn into the meditative rhythms and learn how to use music as wellbeing tool and how freedom in which creativity and confidence arise and flow naturally…plus it’s heaps of fun. Be uplifted through the power of group drumming, make friends and detach from the mind’s thought and connect with your intuition for a journey of making-music together.

All instruments provided. No musical experience required!

Did you know, clinical research has found that group drumming at 80/100 beats per minute brings a state of calm, slowing and regulating breath, lowering blood pressure, and reducing stress, all of which boost the function of the immune system?

Story dolls

Come on a journey of self-discovery to create a small fabric doll for you to keep. She will hold and carry the energy of your most authentic and precious selves out into the world. Limited only by your imagination, you will use a range of materials to bring forth qualities of belonging, worthiness, love, compassion, or…..

Who is she? What does she yearn for? How does she want to live? These are some of the musings you may be invited to ponder in bringing her story to life.
