“My love affair with Bali began in the late 70s. It holds a special place in my heart and has always been a nurturing space for me to reconnect with my true values and priorities in life.
Dealing with injury, health issues, relationship breakdowns, poor body image and burn out revealed the importance of taking radical responsibility for my life. Finally, a ‘knock on the head’ woke me up to urgency in prioritising my own self care.
What I really love about sharing the experience of going on retreat is, the opportunity to step away from our repetitive thoughts and everyday habits. Its really exciting to step back, observe ,reflect, cultivate powerful practices and implement strategies to consciously direct our lives in a healthier direction.”
