Retreat: Getting Unstuck
A Small Intimate Retreat for Women
Feeling stuck or trapped or have a problem that’s deeply troubling you?
Seeking a space to figure out what to do & how to move forwards?
Everyone says you have the answers inside you, but how do you find them?
Perhaps you’ve done such a good job at pretending things are ok and doing ‘what’s right’ that you’ve loose touch with who you really are and what you need.
Perhaps you’ve already spoken to friends and family and now feel they are bored of listening to you talk about this.
Perhaps you’ve been bottling things up and feel like it’s eating you up, sending your mind crazy and you’re ready to explode.
Would you like?
real, raw, honest conversations where you don’t have to edit your thoughts or feelings.
to be guided into deep self-reflection so you can find clarity that’s not influenced by friends/ family.
moving body meditations to shift you out of overthinking and open you towards new perspectives.
to explore your deepest thoughts and feelings without the fear of upsetting the people in your life.
To feel like you don’t have to pretend that you’re ok.
To explore sides of yourself that you hide away as you’re scared of how you’d be judged..
A clearer more honest sense of what’s going on for you.
reduction in stress and tension around what’s troubling you.
reduction in overthinking and anxiety
a feeling of coming home to yourself
to feel stronger about who you are and what you want
You don’t need to follow through with anything you discover… sometimes the knowledge of how you really feel and what you really think is enough to create a shift and sense of peace and ease.
A retreat for emotionally sensitive women who over-give, over-edit, & over-think.
You try to do the right thing by others because you care. Yet you feel stuck, trapped, alone or misunderstood.
You want to find an un-edited version of yourself, express who you really are, feel like you belong and get unstuck in life
You’re an emotionally sensitive women who can over-give, over-edit, & over-think.
You get so much from silence and self reflection… even if you can’t find the time for it that often
Even if you’re a bit intimidated by it, you’re drawn to creative expression such as dance, and embodied movement-based practices.
You’re emotionally sensitive, but can’t always feel what you’re feeling.
You range from emotional numbness to feeling like you might explode.
You’re often the ‘go to’ person when friends or family need support.
You can feel misunderstood and alone even around those who are key in your life.

AN INTIMATE RETREAT FOR 4 WOMEN
This is a small intimate retreat for 4 women. All of you will be bringing something totally different and yet all of you will be wanting to be able to speak, move, express yourselves freely & truthfully. There is immense power in being able to let go and allow others to really ‘see’ us. To be seen by others can allow us to see ourselves again. It is about giving you back to you & supporting the others in the group to do the same.

Something I've noticed is that a lot can happen on a retreat & then in the following weeks much processing can happen which feels unsupported. I'd like to bridge that gap by including a follow up coaching call to help ground and integrate the weekends retreat.
