Sometimes, we need to step away and pause before moving forward again.

MY PROMISE TO YOU

As soon as Bold Darling was born, I knew that a retreat would be a part of its offering.

I've experienced myself the power of retreats and have invested time, energy and money heavily in retreats in Australia and abroad over the years. Honestly? Retreats enable me to sustain the level of success and growth I wish to have in my life and business. 

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that businesses require a LOT of nurturing - and then there are the loved ones in our lives who also need a lot from us.

The Bold Darling Retreat is a window of time where you, the nurturer, gets nurtured… so you can re-enter your life and business lit up, re-energised, and crystal clear on the path forward.

In a divine nature setting in the Noosa Hinterland, I will lead an intimate group through a program that encompasses the most potent elements of my own retreat experiences. It's time to set down your load and be restored on a deep level: mentally, physically, spiritually,  emotionally and energetically.

From the second you arrive, you don’t need to make any decisions or look after anyone else - you are in my capable and loving hands!

You will be amazed at what peace, clarity and inspiration you will find in our five days together.

…If stress has you waking at 2am mentally rehearsing your to do list for the next day.

…If you feel a need to connect on a deep level with fellow strong, passionate and supportive women.

…If you’re at crossroads in your business and want to get some clear direction on what your next steps are.

…If you haven’t had time to think about what YOU want from your life for a long, long time.

HOME FOR THE BOLD DARLING RETREAT

The Bold Darling Retreat will be held at the stunning 44-acre purpose-built Amara Retreat Venue in the Noosa Hinterland.  

Amara Retreat is only 20 minutes from Maroochydore Airport, 10 minutes to Peregian Beach, 1 1/2 hours from Brisbane and 20 minutes to Noosa.

What made me catch my breath with this incredible place was the 180 degree views across the Hinterland all the way to Noosa. 

To be steeped in such gorgeous Nature is the perfect scene for the unwinding and restoring that the Bold Darling Retreat will bring for you.

"There is a vibration here that resonates visibly with our guests. You can see stress and tension disappearing immediately, even as soon as you drive through the gates at Amara".
 

The stunning Hamptons Style Retreat House offers outside areas for my guests to lounge and relax with light breezes and sweeping views to the North. 

The double daybed and several other nooks and crannies offer a cosy place to recede into privacy and enjoy a nap, a book or simply to daydream.

Enjoy a walk around the 44 undulating acres of the property alongside grazing kangaroos and wallabies, while being serenaded by kookaburras and native birdlife. A rock balancing garden provides another meditative space amongst lush riparian forests

Guests are invited to swim in the 4,000 sqm sacred waterhole, soak in the 6-person steam sauna and to take a dip in the magnesium salt pool to wash away any last traces of tension.

 WHAT WE’LL BE EATING

As you might know, food is an extremely high priority for me… and that extends to the food we share on our retreat.

Our private chef will be Alex Klein, a devoted plant-based chef with an intention to educate and inspire people to reclaim their kitchen and their health by using simple holistic practices and principles. 

 

He also knows that feeding people is not just about the food... it's about the love put into the whole experience of serving, sharing, educating and enjoying. This is where his passion for nourishment really comes to life and can be felt far beyond the kitchen.

 

The retreat will be an unforgettable organic plant-based food journey. All the ingredients and produce are seasonal and freshly sourced from local markets, farmers, and Alex's own garden.

All meals, snacks, tea and coffee are included as part of your Bold Darling Retreat package. Oh, and all dietary requirements can easily be accommodated.

To get your tastebuds firing, here’s a sampler of the kind of food we have in store for you…

GROUP MENTORING WORKSHOPS

Each day at the Bold Darling Retreat, I’ll be hosting a half-day workshop.
We will be diving DEEP in these sessions. If you want to get called on your own BS, then you are in the right place – and I’ll also be your go-get-‘em cheerleader as you make some big decisions on where you are and where you want to be.

 

I've designed the sessions with two distinct phases:
First we rest, rebuild and recharge (the yin/feminine energy phase), then we strategise from that inspired, grounded place (the yang/masculine energy phase).
Included in your package are five half-day group workshops with me.  The sessions are specifically designed to help you:
  • Unlock more energy, focus and mental bandwidth in your life and business
  • Identify the current obstacles blocking your success
  • Tune into your passions and purpose and design a more aligned life
  • Clearly articulate your strengths and superpowers
  • Map out a magnetic five-year vision for your life and business
  • Articulate clear goals and a roadmap to make them a reality

Workshop 1:

Laying down your load & intention setting

Workshop 2:

Energy optimisation

Workshop 3:

Passion & purpose

Workshop 4:

Magnetic business visioning

Workshop 5:

Bringing the retreat together

SPIRITUALITY

Each day we devote time to cultivating your spiritual practice, to help you reconnect on a deep level with yourself so you can hear your own soul whispers again.

I am thrilled that my friend and trusted guru Claire Obeid will be joining us on retreat.  She has been trusted friend for over a decade now, and I've been coached by her myself during a very full-on period in my first business.  

Claire is also a one-woman toolkit of tools we can bring back to our lives at home to keep the retreat goodness flowing for years to come: she is a yoga teacher, meditation coach, Emotional Freedom Technique (aka "tapping") practitioner and a somatic and embodiment coach.  She's also the most naturally skilled person I've ever seen at holding space for women as they grow and heal.

Claire will be leading our Miracle Mornings each day and will also host a Masterclass on tapping - a tool I lean on a lot in my own life and business.

Expect a lot of magic when this woman is around...

THE BOLD DARLING MIRACLE MORNING

Anyone who has followed me for a while will know that my Miracle Morning is very special to me, and it’s a key pillar of my retreats as well.

We greet each new day with a group Miracle Morning at the dedicated yoga space at Amara: The Heart Centre.

Our Miracle Morning includes meditation and yoga with Claire, then a morning reflection practice while sipping freshly squeezed lemon juice in warm water.

All levels of experience with yoga and meditation will be cared for - rookies and advanced included!

HEALING TIME

Included in your retreat package is a healing session with Lisa Morgan and her team of energy healers.

Their treatments work on both a physical and energetic level, supporting the growth and healing of your retreat by helping you release blocked emotions and energy holding you back from the life and business you wish to have.

REST TIME

Each afternoon is dedicated to Go Inwards time – time just for you to relax, think, rest, be pampered or read. This is sacred time for you, with nowhere to be and no agenda. 

After lunch together, the group will disperse to devote the afternoon to themselves as individuals. You might find a peaceful nest to read, soak in the magnesium salt pool, snooze in your room or go into Noosa to visit the beach and do some shopping.  Or you might have a peaceful conversation or outing with fellow guests.

If you’d like to dive even deeper during your afternoons, a team of holistic practitioners is available to visit you at the Bold Darling Retreat for an additional charge, including Zenthai massage, kinesiology, naturopathy, counselling, reiki and tarot reading. We will share a list of local practitioners with you.

MAKING THE CONNECTION

So much of the magic of a retreat is the fellow guests you get to know and learn from.

Each evening the group comes together for Evening Circle, when we share the biggest learnings, aha moments and insights from the day with each other.
