This AWAKE Retreat is truly an investment in your BEING.


3 Day Retreat

Hosted in the countryside retreat lodging of Tivoli in the semi-regional Queensland town of Kin Kin, you will experience this retreat completely immersed by dozens of acres of untouched Australian pasture land, expanding out on to crystal clear horizons, and night skies decorated with thousands of visible stars.

 

This particular AWAKE retreat is offered exclusively to Mothers, with a strong emphasis on the promotion of healing, genuine communal connection, and the inward reflection and space required to journey to IDENTITY.
Both the identity of being a Mother, and the identity of Self often lost through Motherhood, will be explored on this retreat.
While the retreat offers plenty of independent time to relax and drop into yourself, it will also offers times at which we can come together in total safety, to share in our highly acclaimed movement classes, yoga classes, unique relaxation activities, nourishing meals and journaling. 

 

Massage, country side walks, wood-fired sauna and magnesium pool relaxation, journaling, yoga and AWAKE Movement classes are all a part of this retreat. To get a full taste of what's on offer, see our inclusions list and itinerary. As with all of our retreats, you do not need to participate in any part of the itinerary that makes you feel uncomfortable; there is no pressure put on physical limitations.

 

More vital than any activity though, is the experience of finding genuine, long-term connections with other Mothers, and with your SELF during this retreat. Each retreat is guided by Abby Wake and other specialty instructors and AWAKE Team Members, meaning that we are always present to protect your personal boundaries and to prompt you to remain present and open to the beautiful experience of being on retreat. 


It is important to bring a positive, community spirited attitude to a retreat, but we also welcome your sadness, pain, discomfort and anxiety; we are here to explore those things together, in total safety, and in total love.



The Itinerary

September 15-17th

Friday-Sunday

This retreat is less structured than some other AWAKE Movement Retreats; while there are still activities daily that provide a space for connection and interaction (eg. yoga, 3x AWAKE Movement Classes per day, journalling prompts and mealtimes) there is also plenty of time provided to simply switch off, entirely. Take a stroll through acres of countryside in the fresh air, bathe in the brilliance of the magnesium pool, and take a breathe in the wood fired sauna. Enjoy the safety, comfort, and peace of this retreat, without strict activity blocks.

  • A deposit of $200 will secure your place on this retreat, and will be deducted from the total cost (Only $550 left to pay!)
  • Payment Plans are available, or you may pay Outright. Please note that all payments made before July 26th (the last day to finalise all payments) are non-refundable.
  • From March 1st, there are 22 weeks left to pay off your Tivoli retreat. An example of your payment schedule, if booking on March 1st, and paying your deposit of $200, would be $25 per week. Please calculate your payment schedule based on when your initial deposit clears. For example, if you secure your space on April 5th, you would then only have 16 weeks left to pay off your retreat, and you would need to divide those weeks by $550. Therefore, you would deposit $34.50 per week.
  • As our retreat accommodates Mothers from all over the world, we are unable to include flights to Brisbane, Australia, as each persons flight cost will vary depending on which capital city they are travelling from. Therefore, your return flight from your capital city to Brisbane Australia, and your travel from Brisbane City to Kin Kin (approx. 2.5 hours by car), are not included in the $750 price tag.
    We suggest cheapflights.com or skyscanner.com for cheapest flights.
