Elisha has put together the perfect combination for healing and inner awareness, at her retreat. The peace you feel as you drive into her home, the knowledge she shares and then the skills she teaches you over the day all make for a truly magical day. I’m so grateful that I went!

1–Day Mindfulness Retreat


8.30am – 5pm Lunch Included

This serene mudbrick property above, is my home. Where the Lyrebirds teach you mindfulness, and theRE IS space to hear your own song… THE SILENCE is EXPANSIVE

This Day Immersion takes Mindfulness and Meditation and applies it with a deeper understanding of our Mind–body intelligence, our energy systems and practical life application. This is designed as a back–to–nature reboot, to balance the stresses of body and mind, and reconnect to your innate wisdom and creativity.

What you will receive

You will learn practices to calm the mind, be present and less stressed, using meditation, sound techniques and practical energy regulating tools. These are guided meditations for body and mind including walking meditation, nature communication, sound exercises, simple visualisations and breathing techniques. This is designed as a nature immersed energy reboot.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

The benefits of Meditation and Mindfulness are measured and scientifically proven to regulate your body's homeostasis, that means, your body heals when you enter a state of calm. The more you practice staying in that state of calm the more your body self regulates, and the greater your level of awareness becomes to catch the minds tricks! The inner critic and 'worrier' that takes up so much inner dialogue, is able able to be reprogrammed with practice and awareness.

Psycho/Physical Benefits of Mindfulness & Meditation are immediate:
