Tasmania, is a heart-shaped island and is the southern most state of Australia. The climate is temperate and the air the freshest you may have ever breathed. Tasmania is renowned for it’s brilliant GMO free flavour-full foods, it’s variety of country and coast, and it’s beaches and mountains. Tasmania is a place that will continue on in your memory as a slow moving, natural, cultural and inspiring landscape.


Lee-Anne & Cory are a happily married team who run Temple of Balance. Founded in 2005 by Lee-Anne, Temple of Balance is known for it’s highly intuitive and supportive events, thought-provoking books, inspiring artwork and motivating teachings! Lee-Anne & Cory are a dynamic team and will be supportive and focused hosts for this Tasmanian Healing Retreat - inspiring you to try new things and to heal in a supportive and honest environment.

The Retreat is hosted at a playful school retreat / girl guide camp house at the private Roches Beach - just south of Hobart (about 15 minutes drive from Hobart Airport - 20 minutes drive from Hobart).
All rooms are 'camp style' with over 60 x single beds - most are fixed bunk beds (you can choose top or bottom bunk). The house is flat (no stairs) and boasts views of trees, flat landscape, an abundance of wildlife and privacy.
The secluded 'Roches Beach' is a short and flat walk away with private access - simply across the field and you are standing on the white sands of Roches Beach
The house has shared bathrooms with showers and toilets in cubicles. All up there are 7 x toilets and 6 x showers. There is a great size living space, a wood heater if it gets cool, lots of outside space to explore with a BBQ to use. Enjoy a morning or evening walk, watch the sunrise or moon-rise at the beach, bird or bunny watch, collect some special shells, go for a swim, take some photos of wildlife or just soak up the fresh mix of country and sea air! See some retreat House photos in this event's images.

Some people prefer to organise alternative accommodation that is more comfortable than a single bunk bed. If you have sleeping or body issues from beds this may be an option you consider.
There are three potential options here:
OPTION A - Book your own accommodation at the Foreshore Motel - link: https://www.booking.com/hotel/au/foreshore-tavern.html - Note: the fees, booking, dates etc are all up to you to organise, not your hosts.
If you stay at this venue you can be included in airport dropoff / pickup - if the dates and times match with the retreat times. This venue is close enough to the retreat that you can be picked up in the morning and dropped off at night. All retreat basic food / meals are included.
OPTION B - Organise a motor home / caravan / tent - There is space to park your motor home, caravan, pitch a tent etc. on site. These are unpowered. You must organise all costs involved with this (hiring, fuel etc), it is not the retreat hosts responsibility. You can still have access to bathrooms and all retreat basic food / meals. No linen, towels supplied.
OPTION C - Your own accommodation somewhere else - If accommodation is beyond a 5min drive radius from the retreat venue, you will need to organise your own transport to the retreat each day. Note: the alternative accommodation and transport fees, booking, dates etc are all up to you to organise, not the hosts. All retreat basic food / meals are included.

Day 1 - Fri 14 Feb - arrive
Arrive - pick up from Hobart Airport anytime after 9am - settle in
Early risers start the day with a morning walk or meditation on the beach. Return back to the Retreat House for breakfast.
At around 10am Lee-Anne will begin our in-depth journey of creating our own individual Divination Kits. Over the months prior to the Retreat Lee-Anne and Cory will ethically source and collect small rocks, bones, shells and other items which will be added to each Divination Kit. 
Everyone will have the opportunity to 'mark' with a symbol, word, picture etc on at least one of the kit contents - which will be added to each bag. There will be opportunity to collect seeds, bark or other natural items from the area to add too.
You can select from various fabrics and sew your own sacred pouch for your Divination pieces - and we will be making our own 'mat' for actual divination.
This will be a very creative day which will bring us into connection with spirit, our intuition and each other.
After the workshop there will be time to integrate, relax, converse and enjoy dinner. Those who enjoy the later times of the day may enjoy some oracle cards or crystal playtime with Lee-Anne or Cory.
Start the day with some morning connection and explore the surroundings.
Then we dive into the continuation of Saturday's workshop. We will finish making - if required, and then work on exploring, defining, understanding and interpreting our Divination Kits and what everything it contains means. This will be done through exercises, observation, intuition, discussion and practice.
Our day will be full of intense discussion, brainstorming, listening and getting our Divination Kits as accurate and clear as possible.
We'll enjoy a shared lunch and a lovely dinner to end a great weekend of creating.
Lee-Anne or Cory will be hosting a quiet evening playtime or have a relaxing read before bed.
 Day 4 - Mon 17 Feb - WORKSHOP: DIVINATION
Begin the day when you're ready or start the day with some reflection and journal writing.
When we're all ready we will solidify the meanings of our Divination Kits, finish any last sections required, and then move into using our kits to read for ourselves, and others.
Lee-Anne will discuss ethics of reading for other people, and will teach you how to listen, use your intuition, express what you 'see' or 'sense',understand the messages you are receiving and explore your psychic skills and tools to help with interpretation.
This day will be about establishing a stronger connection and understanding with our sacred and self-made Divination Kit and how to work with them as tools to support our day-to-day needs, and work with them to help others - if that's our calling.
Enjoy a home-cooked buffet style meal and some evening activities upon which we decide together.

Day 5 - Tues 18 Feb - RELEASING & HEALING: Shamanic

Start the day with a nice stroll around the nature reserve to see the wild birds, possums, wallabies, and rabbits.
Around 10am we will start our releasing day. This will be a day which unfolds in accordance with the best way for the group to release. This is a very serious and sacred experience and will develop perfectly - it always does! We will be guided by the weather, feeling of the group, what we've been working on over the past few days and what inspires at the time.
This day is sacred, and you will be encouraged to practice times of silence and listening. Each person will have their time to share, express and release as required in a safe space - usually working with an element - like fire, water, wind or earth.
We will finish the day with many stories to tell, some lovely home made dinner to eat and after dinner will be the option of a drumming meditation, or an evening swim at the beach (weather permitting).
Day 6 - Wed 19 Feb - SOUND HEALING: Crystal & sound healing day
Begin the day in your own way or with some beach walking or some reflecting.
Using a variety of instruments like the: shamanic drum, wind gong, chakra chimes, singing bowls and new instruments Lee-Anne & Cory will create a beautiful sound healing bath experience for you. Lay back, let yourself receive - it will be a nourishing experience for you. Starts around 10am and will flow throughout the day. This is a popular day we've included for the past 5yrs of retreats. It is timely, nourishing and extremely healing as you relax and soak up what you need.
Enjoy a yummy home cooked meal at the retreat House for dinner to share over conversations of the day.
Optional reflections, play time, meditation and conversations with Lee-Anne or Cory in the evening.
Day 7 - Thu 20 Feb - open day
This is an open day for us all to decide as a group what to do… to relax perhaps, take a long beach walk and collect some shells, write, swim, meditate, celebrate and contemplate.
This will be our final full day of the Retreat and we will decide based on what others feel like and what the collective energy is directing - plus we always spend time in celebration.
We start our clean up and preparation to return back into our everyday lives as new beings.
Weather permitting our final evening may be enjoyed with some drumming outside around a fire after our final retreat dinner.
Day 8 - Fri 21 Feb - departures
This will be our morning of tidying, packing and departing from a memorable week.
Lee-Anne will drive people to the airport depending on flight times. We have to have vacated the retreat House by 10am. Final airport drop-off will be around 2pm. Earlier drop-offs can be anytime.
Those with a flight in the afternoon will wait out their time for flights with Lee-Anne and Cory at Richmond River or browsing Richmond Village - or somewhere else as inspired.  Learn more about Richmond Historic Town HERE
