The Flowering Of You 6th to 9th September


To celebrate the beginning of Spring and the blooming of the exquisite West Coast flowers, the theme for my next Weekend Retreat at the beautiful Samadhi Retreat Centre in Grotto Bay, will be


A blooming flower is a perfect example of male and female, working together in perfect harmony.

Like the flower, each of us is made up of masculine and feminine, but very often,  with the demands of life and our social conditioning, they wobble out of balance.

On this workshop/retreat, in a gentle, supportive environment, with the wild flowers and natural beauty of the west coast as our guides, we will connect with, get to know and start to accept , integrate and balance our inner male and female.

Over the precious 3 days, we’ll spend time walking the vividly coloured coastline, meditate, make flower art on the beach and bring our treasures back to Samadhi, to incorporate into our very own soul art.

All the art we make over the weekend will be “process” rather than “outcome” driven, so absolutely no artistic experience is necessary.

We will nourish ourselves with good wholesome food, peaceful sleeps, and soulful chats to emerge rested, replenished and ready to flower

5D Personal Ascension Retreat 8-10 June 2018


What is the 5th dimension? What does ascension mean? How do the new chakra's look and feel like? What are the different dimensions?

Lets take a walk through them and experience the different vibrations of each dimension.

We will explore the 12 5th Dimensional Ascension Chakra’s in more detail and will be working very closely with Archangel Metatron & Archangel Gabriel & Archangel Raphael for the duration of this retreat.

How does it look like when i live in a higher frequency? What changes in my day to day life and more importantly - HOW DO I DO THIS?

It is going to be a very unique and special experience with a small group. I will also facilitate Purpose Readings during this retreat i.e. Where am I? What am I to do next? What Guidance do I need with the next steps?

Write your Purpose Blueprint

You will experience a personal ascension journey, allowing you to grow deeper and expand your awareness on so many levels, closely working with spiritual laws and principles of unconditional love, truth, honour, trust, respect, compassion and understanding.

Then exploring how this new understanding, expansion and knowledge can impact your day to day life, bringing in a level of harmony that is filled with Divine Peace and Understanding.

Connect with Spirit, connect with Purpose and BE WHO YOU REALLY ARE! Be on Purpose every day of your life and experience how magical life can be.
