Our Holistic Retreats are the fullest expression of all that we offer at Nourished + Nurtured and are designed to have you feeling exactly that way upon your re-entry into the world.

Combining various healing modalities and holistic clean foods that lead you through a journey of undoing the knots, grounding into your body, and dropping more fully into your heart.

Offering you the opportunity to surrender and connect to yourself and those around you. Let go of the stressors of modern life, anchoring your body mind and spirit more deeply to mother earth.


I weave the healing ways that speak strongly to me and that I am qualified + experienced to facilitate. The modalities of Native Amercian Inipi Sweat Lodge, group facilitated Breath Work with the spirit drum guiding us and Yoga are part of this plus of course clean Holistic food and most importantly nature being integral to this work.

I also have gracious and skilled guides that I trust implicitly in Yoga, Health + Fitness, Qi Gong and Spirit Drum Making to bring to the retreat to share their wisdom and care with you and your friends. For the above retreat styles in a beautiful more laid back bush setting I utilise a magical property outside of Sydney near Bilpin. This location allows us to offer delicious Holistic food, Inipi Sweat Lodge, Breath Work, Yoga, Group work, Wood fired sauna and bushwalking. Available here are group accomodation in two houses and bell tent style camping.

For more high end retreats I utilise a stunning beach property on the Central Coast with ocean vistas at the Copa View Beach House in Copacabana. This beachside locale is perfect for the more intimate retreats options that can include exciting educational food + nutrition workshops,  breath work, yoga, and even sacred cacao weekends.

These are two options here for you and your group to utilise, so please shoot me an email if you have an interest in having me create a weekend for you and your friends at either location or a location of your choosing. OR I am also available to be your private chef and caterer at your own styled retreat at the above locations or a location of your choosing.

I look forward to hearing from you.
