Reconnection Health Retreat

Know Thyself – Reconnection Health Retreat

We can feel as if we have lost connection with ourselves at various times in life and desire to find out more about who we are, why we are here and what we are to do.  A reconnection health retreat is about helping you remember and come back to your own authentic self.

I would like you to know that you are very welcome to contact me with any questions you may have and to share some of what is going on for you because I am here to help and this is what I am all about.

My commitment to you is to teach you and facilitate a programme that provides you with tools and experiences needed to relieve stress and grow into this state of appreciation for your life and how it unfolds.

Coming back to the authentic self is a basis to finding more harmony, peace and joy in life.

I have put this programme together based on my learning, research and experience in bringing treatments, therapies (and therapists) and teachings together in such a way that allow my guests the greatest opportunity to learn and grow.

Reconnection Health Retreat

I cater for one retreat guest at a time.  It is a personalised individual retreat focused on your personal development. You live in with me and I am available at all times.

Your retreat is private and confidential meaning that your personal information is not disclosed to anyone else except those who you share it with.  It is focused on high quality, professional treatments and therapies to support relieving psychological stress from your life.

The minimum stay is 7 days living onsite with me with follow up support.  A maximum of 21 days living onsite with me with further extensions may be arranged by mutual agreement and is subject to availability.

Retreats include a range of activities and therapies to assist you including …

  • Life coaching.  I find out what existing belief systems you have that cause psychological stress and your current health conditions.  I can very quickly discover this by hearing some of the stories you tell and how you tell them.  I teach you what causes psychological stress associated with the events that happen in life.  I address the causes of psychological stress from belief systems that are common is society that are based on achievement, fear of missing out, that things should be different and that self worth is measured by achievements and the value of your contribution to society and in your own life, and how it is measured by others.  I then teach you how to neutralise it and grow and develop into the appreciation of life and living.
  • Transforming Breathwork to help release past emotional trauma resulting from life experiences which may still be causing psychological stress.  Bringing them to the surface will assist in allowing new information to be integrated into the mind and body.
  • The Journey” sessions are emotional healing sessions that bring forth from your subconscious mind and into your conscious awareness the relevant issues and past memories which still cause unknown psychological stress in the body and mind.  This guided process is done in a safe and self observing way.  The results can be remarkable with change starting to happen straight away and further improve with time.  (I recommend you read the book prior to arrival although it is not necessary.  The name of the book is, “The Journey” by Brandon Bays.  Most public libraries and major book stores have this book available).
  • Remedial massages.  These are remedial (healing) massages that support detoxifying your physical body and relaxation.
  • Exercise.  It is important to take part in exercise that suits your current health level while you are on retreat.  My highest recommendation for exercise if practical for you is to attend yoga classes at an extra cost per session.  These sessions are highly recommended by me as they support and complement your retreat.  Yoga sessions can assist you in opening your body and mind to a greater appreciation of being alive.

Live-In Reconnection Health Retreats are individually designed to bring together supporting treatments and therapies to help people reconnect to themselves and their unique purpose.

Your retreat is all about you and I encourage you to focus only on you.  Inform your family and friends that you are away on retreat and not available during that time.

My involvement is of the nature of guide, coach, facilitator, supporter and teacher and it is in this function I specialise in. I create a safe and supportive environment in which you can experience emotional, deep level healing and personal development.

My offering to you is comprised of a holistic, multi-faceted approach supporting your healing experience and tailored to your original decision to heal.

Reconnection Health Retreat Options

There are three options for the reconnection health retreat as listed below.  Alternatively I may design a retreat for you that is a minimum of 7 days.

Intensive Reconnection Health Retreat

Duration 7 days/7 nights

This intensive retreat is most suitable for people who mainly coping reasonably well with life.  I recommend that you have a quiet week afterwards (like an at home retreat) with plenty of time for yourself to continue absorbing and putting into practice what you will learn.  You will gain many resources while on my retreats and time and sometimes patience is needed to apply and experience them once you leave.  

The intensive reconnection health retreat includes:

  • Accommodation – own room with queen or double sized bed.  All meals.  Local Outings.  Airport and bus terminal transfers.  Transport to and from outings.
  • 4 Life Coaching Sessions
  • 2 Transforming Breathwork sessions
  • 1 “The Journey” therapy
  • 1 Full body massage
  • Meditation and exercise
  • Regular follow up calls for up to three months (upon agreement).  You will gain many resources while on my retreats and time and sometimes patience is needed to apply and experience them once your leave. I recognise it to be extremely important to have easy access to support once you go back into the environment you came from just to help guide you and answer some of the questions that are likely to come up in relationship to what you have learnt and experienced and how to apply it in your life.

Although this more comprehensive retreat allows more time than the intensive retreat, it is suitable for people who are coping reasonably well with life. I recommend that you have a quiet week afterwards (like an at home retreat) with plenty of time for yourself to continue absorbing and putting into practice what you will learn here.  It is important that you will be returning to a supportive environment after this comprehensive retreat.  You will gain many resources while on my retreats and time and sometimes patience is needed to apply and experience them once you leave.
