This is a chance to get away and recharge your mind, body and spirit in a wonderful holistic and healing way.  There will be some Soulsisters who will have just completed our 12 week Soulful Sisterhood FITcamp Wellness Programme, and this is the icing on the cake for them to reward themselves on their Wellbeing Journey.  However we have opened this retreat up to the public as we know how beneficial and life-changing our retreats are, and we want as many beautiful Soulsisters to experience this for yourself. 

This will be Box of Chocolates 5th retreat at this beautiful venue, and we keep coming back because it is such a stunning relaxing and calming sanctuary to escape to.  It is a treasure trove in all seasons and there will be the cosiness of the open fires and freshness of the air to energise you in lots of different ways!  It is designed to maximise the views around you, so that you will feel at one with nature.  The sounds of the native birds surround you, while the Otaki river is only minutes walk away and will have you feeling peaceful and recharged in no time!

All meals are wholesome, fresh and super delicious, with ingredients being sourced locally and cooked lovingly by a beautiful local caterer.

Depending on the weather we are aiming to do a couple of group walks in the local area, followed by some delicious pampering and wellness activities.

Following on from the success of my "Silence is Golden - Day Retreat" I have created another one to encourage you into celebrating more of your own inner bliss and tranquility.

You may have been curious about Silent Retreats or workshops for a while, well this is a wonderful taster to discover the huge benefits of taking some mindful time out for yourself.

In this busy world we live in, it can be hard to find time out for yourself to "just be" and switch off.  We are often reminded to practice mindfulness, but if you don't know where to start or what that encompasses, it can be confusing with all the choices out there.

It doesn't take long for stress to take hold of our minds and bodies and having some tools to cope, will help you to feel in control and focused on positive change.

Here is a beautiful chance to immerse yourself in a stunning natural sanctuary for a day dedicated to finding peace, serenity and clarity in your life.  The sanctuary overlooks a tranquil pond surrounded by lovely trees to make you feel like at ease, at peace and happy to be in nature. 

You will be guided in a fun, holistic way to bring out some zen magic and create space for you to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

The feel of the day will be light, zen and will awaken your senses with beautiful Ikebana floral arrangements, relaxing essential oil fragrances, soulful relaxing background music and delicious healthy food and herbal teas to savour and share.

This Silent Retreat day will include:

🌸 New mindful activities and guidance
🌸 Zen High Tea
🌸 Chakra Colour Healing
🌸 A variety of Meditation/visualisations
🌸 Healing Circle
🌸 Gentle Stretching & Breathwork
🌸 Relaxing with some Aromatherapy and pure essential oil pampering

Your $55 will include a welcome gift, all activities, resources and Zen high tea lunch with Herbal Teas.   Please bring something to share for afternoon tea (vegetarian only). 

You will love having this time out for yourself and every activity is optional, you can just lie down and relax or walk out in nature if you wish.  

We will do an introduction at the start of the day and then it will be silent throughout the day until we connect again and review our day at the end.  I will be guiding you throughout the day, but we will do things in silence as a chance to embrace stillness and give you moments of clarity.
