    * * * ABOUT YOUR RETREAT LEADER * * *

    Jen is an ACCREDITED Ancient Wisdom and Wellbeing Practitioner as well as an Early-Learning Facilitator, teaching both adults and children all about creating a more meaningful relationship with earth, oceans, nature and self, in fun and engaging ways.

    She is also a multiple best-selling Author, with her most recent books written during Melbourne lockdowns titled "Sacred Whale Connections". She will present this fascinating and spiritually enriching research with you during the Retreat. She will also present her latest children's book "The Whale Who Forgot His Way" as a special public event.

    Combining her own spirit and soul evolutionary experience and her capacity as an Author and Professional Presenter, Jen also includes Intuitive ART classes in the Retreats to help everyone unlock more of your own true potential. It's a NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY process, that will surprise, honour, reflect and respect your true self.

    It is her aim to also incorporate ACTIVITY-BASED PHILANTHROPY where possible in to the Retreat Schedule, giving back whilst gaining so much, and leaving a positive impact as well as a minimal footprint wherever we are.
