"People may call what happens at midlife 'a crisis,' but it's not. It's an unravelling - a time when you feel a desperate pull to live the life you want to live, not the one you're 'supposed' to live. This unravelling is a time when you are challenged by the universe to let go of who you think you are supposed to be and to embrace who you are."  Brene Brown

Just when you thought you had things all figured out along comes your mid 40s to prove to you that you don't have your life sorted after all.  In fact this time of life can leave women feeling more confused than ever before.  

Your role as a mother is changing, maybe your relationship with you partner is changing, you might be caring for older parents, you have a job or business that no longer lights you up.  

You are feeling lost and confused.

You are wondering what happened to the young carefree woman you used to be.

Society tells you that you have less value as you age, you need to look young to be relevant. 

Not only does your life seem to be out of control your body is changing and you are experiencing different symptoms that you have never had in the past.  You ask yourself......


Welcome to mid-life, the stage in your life when your hormones start to shift in preparation for menopause.  The time in your life when you have a choice either:

  1. accept that this is simply part of being a women and you will have to suck it up and keep suffering, OR
  2. you can take control of your health and life and do what it takes to help you to look and feel great

If you are ready to take the second option, and you are ready to:

  • focus on yourself for a change
  • stop the confusion and mood swings
  • stop the physical symptoms like hot flushes, weight gain, aches and pains etc
  • feel great in your body and in your clothes
  • improve your energy
  • stop worrying about what other people think of you
  • create the type of life that you want to live
  • have as much fun as possible
  • to be a part of a community of like-minded women

Then the Journey to You Retreat is for you.

The Journey to You Retreat is delivered in 2 parts:

  • A transformational 2.5 day live-in retreat where you will re-connect to yourself in a very deep manner.  At this retreat you will create a blueprint for your future life, called your Life Plan.  Your LifePlan is a blueprint which will cover different aspects of your life including your relationships, your career/business, your health and lifestyle, having fun and creativity plus your connection to yourself and your beliefs. 
  • After the live-in portion of the retreat you will receive 12 weeks ongoing support to implement what you have written in your LifePlan.  This support will include one on one consultations, group coaching and healing sessions.

The Journey to You Retreat is all about connection –

Connection to nature, connection to others and most importantly connection to self.

What happens at the live-in retreat?

From the time that you arrive at Kondililla Eco-Resort you will be immersed in the healing power of nature, you will hear the birds singing and see the beautiful trees that surround you.  Each morning we will take a walk in nature and find a spot to meditate and journal.

After you have settled in your room you are invited to join us in the beautiful yoga centre where you will meet the other women who have joined you on retreat.  Most of the workshops will be delivered from the yoga centre but weather dependent, we might move outside.

You will have plenty of time for yourself to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings.  Each night after dinner we will come back to the yoga centre for some relaxation and fun.

What will I do on the retreat?

Retreat workshops/activities include:

o   Discovery of Self – a deep dive into how you have lived your life until now and acceptance of the life you have created

o   Creation of your Life Plan – go on a meditative journey to reveal what is possible in your life and then start creating your Life Plan, which is you blueprint for what you want in your life

The Journey to You Retreat has been created to help you feel supported and nurtured.  You will experience a deep connection to yourself, to nature and to others.  This retreat has been created as a safe space where you can share your thoughts and feelings without judgement and without the need for someone to ‘fix’ you. 

Your answers are within you and this retreat has been designed to help you to dig deep to find the answers you are looking for. 

Meet your Retreat Facilitator

Hi, my name is Angela and I am a Naturopath and Kinesiologist with 17 years clinical experience. I am passionate about sharing with women how they can transition through their mid-stage of life with ease.

Until I reached this stage of life myself I never realised how little that I knew about the changes that happen to women as they came closer to menopause.  I had been taught how to "treat" menopause symptoms as part of my studies but it was personal experience that made me realise that there was more to the menopause transition than I had been taught.  This led me to learn as much as I could about the changes that happen to women not only on a physical level but on a emotional level as well.

I soon discovered that every women has their own experience of menopause and that there was no single solution that would work for everyone.  This is why the underlying philosophy of everything I do is a personalised, individual approach.

Even though I felt I was completely 'stuck' in my situation, Angela not only gave me reassurance and essential advice but, most importantly, confidence within myself. I now see there are options available for me to achieve my goals.
