Our “Calm, Conscious & Connected” weekend retreat is the perfect way to wind down a busy year and find a pathway back to YOU!

You don’t have to do a thing! Imagine everything being taken care of so that you can focus on surrendering to peace and quiet, time for yourself and a chance to feel calm, conscious and connected – to yourself, to nature, to the inspirational surroundings and the like-minded women who’ll be sharing this sacred time away with you.


 What you can look forward to…

  • Tranquil spaces to create inner peace, calm and clarity

  • Awareness of your stress levels and tools to let excess go

  • Quiet time to tend to your ‘needs bucket’ and fill her right up!

  • Meditations to stir your spirit and reignite your inner spark

  • Supportive and nurturing environment to quiet your overactive thinking mind and listen to the whispers in your heart

Welcome group  


What You’ll Get Up To…


shutterstock_274752371Friday afternoon welcomes you with a strong sense that you’re going to have a special weekend away! You’ll be met by your host and shown to your room. You’ll have plenty of quiet time to freshen up and get comfortable, or take a stroll around the grounds. You may even meet ‘Andrew’ the flamboyant peacock or hear the birds sing you a relaxing song!

We’ll meet in the Grotto garden where you’ll come together with your fellow peace seekers for a relaxing welcome. You’ll receive your wellbeing goodies bag, and share personal introductions over a refreshing and light afternoon tea.

Friday night dinner will be served in the Mansion cellar where we’ll get dressed up and dine by atmospheric candlelight. Later we’ll gather round the fire-pit for a soulful surrender and intention setting, a hot chocolate and a sweet little something!



Saturday focuses on developing your conscious awareness on what’s missing in your life and what you’re yearning to bring in. You’ll experience insightful teachings, inspiring questions and time for sharing.

Most importantly though, you’ll be encouraged to pull back, draw inward and wander off to spend time with yourself. 

Plenty of space and casual interactions will be yours for the sharing if you feel so inclined. Or simply take a reflective walk, a refreshing swim, or a gentle nap.

Dinner will be served al fresco on the front lawn of the Mansion where you’ll be encouraged to express yourself creatively and dress up for a fun night of delicious food, delightful wine and lots of laughter!



Sunday is for self-care and connection. You’ll have a deliberately slow start so you can enjoy strolling through the exciting and interesting Sunday Markets around the Mansion. Talk to some creative locals, taste gourmet spreads, or simply enjoy viewing the handmade wares.

A decadent Sunday breakfast spread will be enjoyed before taking your sweet time to calmly and consciously connect with your breath and the inspiring company of your new-found friends.

More leisure time will be savoured before our Sunday session of devoted self-care practices to instil at home followed by a private tour of the Mansion!

We’ll gather once more for a final farewell, sending you off home feeling totally calm, conscious and connected, with a scrumptious snack for the road!



Imagine sharing in…

  • Inspiring gatherings to facilitate deep awareness and self-growth

  • Daily relaxation and guided meditations to refresh and renew your energy

  • Fresh, local meals made by qualified chefs on the premises

  • Private accommodation close to all facilities but far enough away to enjoy some peace, quiet and time out by yourself!



Enjoy a few special days of tranquil relaxation where all you have to do is focus on YOU.

   Dinner night 1  Dinner night 2

Share with other like-minded women, engage in exciting and inspiring conversations and enjoy the freedom to relax and let go in a supportive and truly beautiful environment surrounded by nature.

Are you ready for a relaxing getaway to clear your head and give your mind, body and spirit a well-deserved break in nature?


You deserve some time out to…

  • Take a breather from your every day routine and step into the restorative power of nature

  • Reserve this time for yourself to step away from it all – without the guilt or second-guessing

  • Surrender to the peace and quiet you know you’re soul is craving

  • Bathe in the beauty of natural surrounds on a richly historic heritage estate



Enjoy 3 beautiful days on the stunning and historic grounds of Woodlands of Marburg – just 45 minutes drive from both Brisbane and Toowoomba, the heritage-listed two storey plantation-style mansion is nestled among 250 acres of sweeping grounds and rolling hills that overlook the picturesque Marburg Valley. The staff are committed to tailoring our bespoke retreat into a uniquely special and memorable experience with your rest and relaxation as the focus.

It was great to get away and just concentrate on me and reassess how I’m dealing with what’s going on in my life and now have the tools to bring some balance to my life.”

“It was an absolutely fantastic weekend. I liked starting and finishing at midday with the weekend in-between. The gift bags were a beautiful idea and put together brilliantly (congrats to the organiser).”

“Viki, you have a gentle way of communicating and drawing people out. You and Craig (so helpful to everyone) make a great team.”

“It is a very good self-help kick in the arse – to motivate you to take action and be responsible for your own change. It’s been great, thanks for having me. You are beautiful!”

“It was a very positive experience which enables the participants to understand themselves a little better and come away with skills and ideas to use in every day life.”

“Well done Viki and well done Craig. Loved the experience and now have an awareness of myself that has surfaced during the weekend that I can work on.”

“Viki, you are just wonderful in all aspects of what you do. A great opportunity to be with like-minded women. To focus on ourselves, learn to be in-tune with ourselves, and to look after ourselves.”

“Well done on your first retreat, you both did great. I loved it and learnt a lot about myself and met some wonderful ladies. Lovely venue, felt very welcome.”

“Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend and looking after us so well.”
