Living from The Heart on Retreat
Living From The Heart Retreats
Retreats for couples & individuals
Attend on your own, with a partner, friend or family member.
You are invited to join in on the retreats that will heal and awaken your life and your relationships.
Healing occurs in many ways, going beyond treating a diagnosis, problem concern or issue. I believe, it is about guiding you, to find a sense of balance and harmony in all aspects of your life, a process which is as unique as you are. Healing does not only concern recovering what has been lost or repairing what has been broken. It concerns embracing your life force, your joie de vivre, to create a vibrant fabric that keeps you grounded and connected, wrapped you in warmth and love, giving you a sense of joy of all your creations.
Begin Your Creative Journey Today and awaken to the beauty within you and all around you.
Awakening is a shift in your consciousness, it is not an event, but a process that occurs over time.
All Retreats are complete units taken individually or can be followed as part an on-going programme which, provide lasting results that expand and unfold over time. Suitable for individuals and couples, family members and friends who want to improve all aspects of their relationships with themselves and all manner of relationships you encounter in life.

This Encourages decisions that are life enhancing, collaborative, empowering, and based on healthy relationships, vitality and balance.
