Coming Soon: Savouring Self Retreat, Tyrendarra, Victoria, Australia
October 30 - November 1, 2021, Longmeadow Estate, Tyrendarra, Victoria.
In collaboration with Great Ocean Healing Centre's Peta Jolley, Yoga Teacher, Chef Dionne Goyen, I'm so excited to be planning the Savouring Self Retreat.
After the cancellation of all four fully-booked international retreats in 2020 due to COVID travel restrictions, it feels like we can spread our wings again, sharing all of our favourite wellbeing practices.
Details coming soon.
Testimonials from our CONSCIOUS LIVING Retreat Guests, BALI, June 2019
"I signed up for the Conscious Living Retreat hoping for the time of my life. I even expected the time of my life. From the time I landed in Bali, it became far more than that. I am not the same man I was when I hopped on the plane from halfway around the world. The experiences changed me for the better.
Jodie's workshops and Peta's yoga and meditation sessions allowed us to connect with our higher selves in ways I had heard about but never experienced. Their knowledge and compassion and connection germinated in all of us. We truly became a tribe, a family.
In a word, the Retreat was magical. Each minute. Each hour. Each day.
Jodie's workshops gave us the tools to move forward in positive ways with our lives, and more. She didn't just tell us about them. She lived those tools each day. We could see her grow right along with us, so that we became a loving community rather than a mere class.
Peta's meditations taking us up the mountain of our chakras to introduce us to our higher selves perfectly blended with the gentle yoga she led us in. She also did more than lead us. She, too, was one of us.
Jodie created what I see as a perfect atmosphere for personal growth and learning. She created a safe haven for us to be vulnerable. Many, if not all of us, were. Each supported the others.
To say that this amazing retreat was life-changing would not do it justice. It caressed my soul. It nurtured it.
Over time, I've been to many retreats and conferences. I've never experienced the level of love and acceptance and camaraderie and growth I experienced here. Each and every person in the retreat became my friend. Though we only knew each other a week, we really knew each other by the end. Because it was safe to do so.
I cannot imagine a Retreat being any better." Rocky, Texas, USA.
"In some ways I don’t really know where to start to tell of my experience of Retreat.
I had booked into the retreat because I had had a very bad few months with anxiety and depression and felt I needed something to shift my thinking. This retreat was recommended to me and I was drawn more to the Conscious Living Retreat after reading about Jodie Fleming and Peta Jolley and their ethos.
As it turned out this was one of the most beneficial things I have ever done for myself. I can’t remember ever putting so much time into myself and it’s been so rewarding.
Our group met for the first time at Desa Seni a village resort which was chosen so beautifully as our first venue. The perfect place for our tribe to get to know each other and to begin our mindful journey.
We went on to have 7 of the most glorious days together. Our leaders Jodie and Peta led us to re-discover ourselves in the most positive and beautiful way. At times we were very vulnerable but everyone of us felt safe and secure in this beautiful environment of Bali.
I’ve been back home and in the real world now for a few weeks and find that retreat has NOT left me. I feel so much gratitude for the people I met and the experience we all went through. I have only to think of that time and a smile comes to my face.
My biggest thanks go to Jodie Fleming and Peta Jolley. I can’t recommend anything more highly than this retreat. If you find you do need to do anything for yourself I would encourage you to go on retreat with these ladies in the future." Pauline, Victoria, Australia.
"The Conscious Living Retreat was my first trip to Bali along with my first retreat. I had no idea what to expect. My experience was unbelievable. Our crew contained a cross section of people who melded together in the most magical way.
Guided by the vulnerability and honesty of Jodie we all peeled back our barriers and went along the journey of self-discovery. Through the workshops Jodie delivered we shone the spotlight on ourselves which was complimented beautifully by Peta’s yoga and mindfulness sessions.
I left Bali a different person with a more positive outlook on life and for that I will be forever grateful. The accommodation was brilliant and there was enough time to relax as well as enjoy the absolutely delicious food we ate everyday. It was the perfect blend of a retreat and holiday. I can not recommend this retreat highly enough, you owe it to yourself to go!" Jodie, Victoria, Australia.
"Bali was a place I never had on my bucket list or to even go on a Yoga Retreat, but it was six days of being with a fantastic group of people. So much love, laughter & great experiences will stay with me forever . Thanks so much to our amazing leaders Jodie & Peta for an unbelievable experience that I was privileged to be apart of." Fiona, Victoria, Australia
"It’s amazing to think that on May 4th I would embark on a very different holiday to Bali with a group of people, most of which I had not ever met. The following seven days provided many laughs, conversations and tears with these people who didn’t even seem like strangers at all. An amazing experience I would recommend to everyone. You owe it to yourself. Heart felt thanks to Jodie, Peta and Jo." Kerrie, Victoria, Australia.
"Amazing is not a word I use often but that is what the whole week of the Retreat was. Being new to yoga and the whole concept of a retreat, I wasn't sure what to expect and had some doubts. However they were soon put away on the first day when it became obvious that it would be a safe and caring group led by 2 wonderful, warm caring, people. Even though (or because?) some of Jodie's so carefully laid plans went slightly astray, not that I noticed, everything led to that life changing moment awakening. The great locations and food just added the cream to it. Thank you so much to each and everyone involved. Nick xx" Nicholas, Victoria, Australia.
"I’m back into the real world today after the most life changing experience in Bali last week. I was lucky enough to join a group of amazing people at the Conscious Living Retreat.
A heartfelt thank you to Jodie and Peta for organising such a fabulous retreat - you should both be incredibly proud of yourselves. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to spend a week learning more about mindful living and practicing yoga and meditation daily surrounded by incredible people." Yvonne, Australia.
