I totally enjoyed the retreat time away, the new friendships that were formed, the sincere and vulnerable sharing of each of the women, in each task or exercise, and the relaxed atmosphere in which we could unpack and deal with our ‘stuff’.
I have taken time to respond to you, as I wanted to see if the SHIFT was real, and I can say it was! I am feeling lighter, haven’t had to revisit some of the stuff that I got rid of, have started walking again and become more conscious of what I am eating, I have also continued the ‘letting go’ from the exercise we did on the Sunday morning – and feeling frikken fantastic. In fact it truly changed my headspace. Debbie Botha- owner CORE BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
It's very hard to isolate any one thing because I loved it all. So it would have to be the synchronicity of all the processes and how they were woven together with just the right amount of inactivity punctuated with the glorious mealtimes. Lynda Jaros
If you are grappling with uncertainties in life (who isn’t!!) and looking for some direction and focus I think this is a wonderful way to kick start the process. The time away out of the daily chaos to focus on what’s important to me and the inspiration from some wonderful woman. Also an opportunity to be very thankful for my life. Lesley H
I have never felt so invigorated, light and spiritually full as I do after this last weekend! I loved everything and it came at the right time; it was massively healing for me on so many levels; the program was just awesome! The people were amazing! Loved the many, many nuggets of info and processes and tools that were shared. I most definitely recommend this retreat to absolutely everyone! Such a blessing and such a treat to mindfully take time out for myself with Kate and Venetia. I have already implemented some of the tips and tools from the weekend and the change has been mind-blowing! My spot is definitely booked for next year and I can't wait for the next one! Thank you Kate & Ven for sharing your expertise & your beautiful selves with us all at the retreat. Nicole Philipps
Absolutely recommend this! I would say it was not only inspiring but thought provoking; and simply a safe place for women to share and grow through “letting go”. Fabulous facilitators and practical tools to get you started! All the shared information and tools – I found it helpful, insightful and thought provoking! Joanne Foster

How strenuous exercise / body movement component?
The aim of the weekend is to get your body moving and stretching in the form of yoga, pilates and resistance work. Venetia looks after all fitness and mobility levels with an open heart.
How much group sharing will be asked of me - I'm not really into all of that?
While we have lots of group conversations, and they are an integral part of shifting your life, nothing is obligatory and you will share whatever YOU feel comfortable with?
How much FREE time will there be?
LOTS! The aim is to REST, RENEW AND REBOOT. We have got you covered!
