This retreat is thoughtfully designed to help you restore balance. All classes are optional to attend, and there will be open space for you to read books, journal, connect and walk in surrounding nature. Our community is warm and respectful, and you will be welcomed in as a friend. All food will be plant-based and made by Yolanda Whelan who is happy to support your dietary requests. There will be some natural wine and non-alcoholic refreshments as we cosy up by the fire.



Casa Warrandyte is a grounding, architecturally-designed bush retreat that feels like home. Located 30-40 mins outside the City, expect to hear the sound of birds in the morning, and feel the invitation to slow down.


Intention Setting Workshop

Reflect on your year so far and cultivate an intention for winter and beyond. This workshop will include guided meditation, journaling and shared reflections to explore this moment in time. We will highlight our strengths, the challenges we have navigated and use these self-learnings to connect with core values.
