Event description

I invite you to join me for our final delicious deep dive into the medicine of dance, weaving together the practices of Dancing Freedom & Open Floor together with voice exploration & heart songs from around the world, ceremony & yoga.

I am so delighted to once again be joined again by the amazing team that came together to create our first COURAGE retreat in August last year, and the three since - PLENTY, THRESHOLD & COURAGE: the wonderful & wise Sara-Jane Cleland & Sue Tsigaros offering Yoga, Sacred Altars, Emotional Support & Space-holding.

We are so happy to be returning to the gorgeous Heartspace Retreat Centre in Yass, on the beautiful country of Ngunnawal. All organic food lovingly prepared by chef Angie Cowen - including local seasonal produce straight from the garden!

Our retreat lands halfway between Spring Equinox & Summer Solstice, on the Celtic festival known as Beltane,  a time when we celebrate the return of Summer, the bright fire of the sun and the fullness of life.

Belonging is the innate human desire to be part of something larger than us. Because this yearning is so primal, we often try to acquire it by fitting in and by seeking approval, which are not only hollow substitutes for belonging, but often barriers to it. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance. – Brené Brown

Knowing that the time is now

To seek within

To express your truth

To welcome all as part of the whole

To leave no-one and nothing out of our common-unity.

A time to remember the medicines of dance & song,

Of sharing food and gathering around the fire.

These simple things that remind us how to live.

To live a meaningful life,

A soulful life.

A time to come together

To share and learn

And to reclaim our birthright

To live in connection and reciprocity with the earth and each other.

A time for BELONGING.
