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 single beds, most with fixed bunks (which are not classed as bed options by your hosts - unless you want to sleep on the top bunk). The house is flat (no stairs) and boasts views of trees, flat landscape, an abundance of wildlife and open privacy.
The secluded beach is a short and flat walk 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 with a BBQ to use. Enjoy a morning or evening walk, watch the sunrise or sunset at the beach, bird or bunny watch, collect some special shells, go for a swim, take some photos or just soak up the fresh mix of country and sea air! See some retreat House photos in this event's images.

Day 2 - Sat 16 Feb - WORKSHOP: Healing Energy Card creation
Early risers start the day with a morning walk or meditation on the beach with Lee-Anne.
Return back to the Retreat House for breakfast.
At around 10am Lee-Anne will begin talking about Art Therapy through art and what she has learned from over 10yrs of helping herself and others through her Healing Energy Cards. Then in a safe yet encouraging environment you will be guided to step inward and create your very own piece of Healing Art. No artistic experience is required. Material options will include: soft pastels, pencils, graphite, coloured pencil, acrylic paint, or oil pastels. Lee-Anne will be helping too and offering artistic advice and ways to enhance parts of your creation. This will be a creative healing day to help push you outside your comfort zone, boundaries and perfectionism limitations.
We will then spend time reflecting on the individual pieces and collate them all to become our special Healing Energy Card deck for the week ahead. Lee-Anne will print out 6x4in photograph copies for everyone (at the retreat only) to use, play with and get to know themselves through this project.
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.
Day 3 - Sun 17 Feb - WORKSHOP: Make your own art resin pendant with your Healing Energy Card design
Start the day with some morning connection with Lee-Anne and then some of your own time to explore the surroundings.
After collecting a small print of your Healing Energy Card creation (Lee-Anne will organise this), Lee-Anne will teach you how to cut, prepare and create your own art resin pendant using your design. Lee-Anne will be on hand to help. After a few days drying you will then have your own Healing pendant to wear and connect further with the healing and inspiration you created in your art piece on Saturday.
We'll enjoy a shared lunch and a lovely dinner to end a great weekend of learning.
Lee-Anne or Cory will be hosting a quiet evening playtime or have a nice relaxing read before bed.
Day 4 - Mon 18 Feb - WORKSHOP: Chakras
Begin the day when you're ready or participate in morning activities if you wish.
Then around 10am Lee-Anne will talk you through everything she knows about the seven major chakras, how they can help us with our self-healing, and we will cross connect and understand the Healing Art we all created on Saturday from a Chakra perspective. We will spend time clearing, releasing and activating each chakra to help you better understand yourself.
Enjoy a home-cooked buffet style meal and some evening activities upon which we decide together.
Day 5 - Tues 19 Feb - RELEASING & HEALING: Shamanic
Start the day with a nice stroll around the nature reserve to see the wild birds, possums, wallabies, birds and rabbits.
Around 10am we will start our healing Shamanic day. This will be filled with shamanic drumming for you, and by you (bring your own drum, or we have plenty to share). Explore the power of the drum and how to work with it to help yourself. This day may also include a healing walk, vision quest or soul retrieval. What it definitely is will depend on the group dynamics, the lead up to this day and what feels right as Lee-Anne prepares the events for everyone.
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.
We return to the retreat House 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 20 Feb - SOUND HEALING: Crystal & sound healing day
Begin the day in your own way or with Lee-Anne for some beach walking or some reflecting.
Using a variety of instruments like the: shamanic drum, wind gong, chakra chimes and singing bowls 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 4yrs of retreats. It is timely, nourishing and extremely healing.
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 21 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.
The start of our clean up and leaving the venue begins.
Weather permitting our final evening may be enjoyed with some drumming outside around a fire after a special final retreat dinner.
Day 8 - Fri 22 Feb - departures
