Women’s Retreats

Women's retreatsRetreat, Reflect, Relax

Women’s Only Retreats (held with our associates) provide a space for us to reconnect with ourselves, in the company of other great women. The small group retreats are held at Nathanael’s Rest, a quiet space in the natural beauty of the Perth hills, within 45 minutes of the CBD. Along with some time to yourself and good  company, you will experience learning based on the disciplines of ontological coaching, mindfulness and various body awareness and movement forms. All activities are an ‘invitation’ and your participation is entirely your own choice.box for website

Finding Calm Amidst the Storm

Cultivating resilience in life’s ups and downs

There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm. Willa Cather

Women’s retreat facilitators

Experienced facilitators will offer you a range of reflective individual and group processes. This retreat is facilitated by Nicky Howe (CEO, ontological practitioner, leadership and management coach), Anne Courtney (coach, retreat facilitator and leadership consultant) and Kathryn Choules (educator, researcher, Mindfulness facilitator and practitioner).

 

 

What women who’ve been on our retreats are saying:

Birds, bush, hills, quiet. A place to share food, stories. To listen, think, be. Jennifer Binns

These wonderful women will create a safe and nurturing and fun space to think, play and reflect in a beautiful relaxing environment with wonderful food and company. Tara Hoyne

Nicky, Anne and Kathryn provided the perfect space for us all to reflect on our everyday challenges and to find our own solutions to overcome these. Most importantly, the retreat was a reminder that we all have the wisdom inside us to find the answers to our questions, but all too often the busyness of life and its demands blind us to that basic truth. Karin MacArthur

I arrived feeling frazzled, with a tired mind and tired body – with heartfelt nurturing, my soul was honoured and my body rested; all among like-minded womenfolk, nestled in peaceful surroundings. I left reenergised, armed with sustainable tools. Indulgence – Absolutely Not!! Rejuvenated, Refreshed and Rebalanced- Absolutely YES!! So when is the next retreat? Josique Lynch

I found the opportunity to have time away from home – my family and work environment was really useful in accessing my own inner wisdom. The sessions facilitated discussion among the women participants and provided tools to consider issues of concern. The retreat environment provided was respectful of a range of learning styles, experiences and backgrounds.  F Britton

Retreat themes from previous years include:

  • Cultivating Emotional Wisdom
  • Cultivating Contentment
  • Reconnect with your own voice
  • Reconnect with the wisdom of your body
  • Courage to be
  • Relating: Me – You – Us

    Hi Kathryn
    I can’t make the dates for the April WomensRetreat but would love to do it.
    Will there be another one this year?
    Thanks

      Hi Ann Marie
      What a pity about the dates 🙁
      The April date is the only women’s retreat we have planned this year.
      I have a mindfulness weekend retreat on the last weekend in September and a series of one-day retreats starting in February.
      It would be great to have come along and be a very funky part of one of the retreats 🙂
      Hope all is good with you.
      Kathryn

    Hi Just wondering if there a still free spots for the Women’s retreats looks amazing 🙂 and if there is a program/timetable you might be able to supply, Is Yoga or other similar activities also included along with the mindful based practices.

      Hi Charmaine
      Yes, there are still places for the next Women’s Retreat. And yes, they are a great weekend. Gentle yoga is offered in the mornings – as much as anything, as a mindfulness practice to wake up in and through the body. There are reflective processes, mindfulness based practices, periods of silence, laughter and connection.
      We’d love to have you join us.
      Kathryn
