We get you settled into your room, and later meet by the fire for our arrival women's circle, where we connect together as a group for the first time. 

 "Each time women gather in circle,

the world heals a little more"

Over the course of the next 4 nights, 4 days, you:

Co-create a natural mandala to bring you into a deeply relaxed and meditative state, and set intention for the retreat. 

Enjoy the most amazing vegetarian lunches and dinners prepared lovingly by local Chef and Meditation Coach, Lisa Staab from Fig in the Sun; as well as delicious breakfasts shared with deep enthusiasm :) by my husband and breakfast king, Marlon. 

Daily yoga including posture, movement, breathwork, mantra/sound, and meditation practices.

A walking meditation practice.

A blissful massage, reflexology or Bowen session (not included in package price) on Friday to release all your tension and forget about the world.

Sacred Cacao Ceremony by Kate Manley, Moon & Tide Gatherings.

Kate offers her unique blend of 7 chakra crystal singing bowl sound immersion, medicine drum, chimes; ceremonial grade Cacao by Morning Ritual; guided breathwork, meditation and energy healing. Upon arrival into the ceremony space, Kate also energy clearing on each individual.

'Woven' Somatic Vocal Workshop with Hollie Morris and Kerrie Harth.

This workshop will promote rediscovery of the voice through honouring the body, cultivating breath, and allowing authentic vocal expression. Hollie & Kerrie hold space for each woman to be heard, and support the restoration of balance in the relationship with voice. You will release emotions and expand limiting beliefs held about your capacity to voice your truth. We conclude this workshop with a tea ceremony to evoke the senses and feel the effects of voicework and community connection through song.

Activate the codes of wisdom within you as we delve into the mysteries of our human body in  Wisdom Workshops by Liv. Liv's workshops are designed to call in your sacred, divine power to set you free, unbind your heart and soul, and release limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from your divine potential. You will receive the Wise Woman Mini-Book to read at leisure as well as Liv's very own Inner Contemplation Journal.

A sacred container held just for you, to enjoy time for silence, restoration, journalling, reflection, contemplation, dreaming, and self-loving!

A complimentary gift pack on arrival with some goodies for your stay.

A retreat experience crafted with love by
Liv Besson
Spiritual Teacher & Coach, Yoga Therapist, NLP Practitioner and Mind Body Medicine devotee. 

Teaching yoga since 2008, and studying holistic health since my early 20s, I have dedicated my life to bridging the gap between modern and ancient medicine. In the past eight years, I have furthered my studies in yoga therapy, the chakra system, neuroscience, trauma awareness, embodiment, breath work, meditation and life coaching. I have witnessed the power of these practices in empowering my students and clients to transform their lives. My mission is to support  women to rediscover their sense of Self as a source of intelligence, truth, wisdom, joy and nourishment. From this place, they can shine their Light upon the world!


"Your commitment to ..teaching us the practice of yoga...has been an amazing inspiration to me. We have learnt so much from you. ...I especially want to thank you for taking us away on retreats. These retreats strengthened our inner being and helped us to be mindful of others. ... the student in us honours the teacher in you"


"You are like a pause button. You remind me to stop, breathe, and reflect on myself, not everyone else, and that myself, right now, is the priority. You remind me that it is okay to do this; that I am as worthy as the next person for my time.....I don't always have to put myself in the back of a line- I can actually be first. As a yoga teacher you guide me to get to know my body and to trust myself in listening to it"


"I want to thank Liv for sharing her wisdom on the energy body, her extensive knowledge of yoga therapy and the tools of NLP that she put together in her course on the sacred. Liv is a wonderful teacher, very gentle way of teaching, but full of humour and passion."


"Without your guidance I would not have the love and dedication to yoga and meditation that I have. It has been my one priority every week to turn up on a Tuesday and I will miss zoning out to your voice. Thank you for allowing me the opportunities to extend my practice. It has been a rewarding journey and I am so grateful."
