Event description


3 night retreat - A deeply restorative experience for carers.

The Carer Valley Escape is a unique carer retreat limited to five women. If you’re a female carer in need of someone to take care of you while you have an opportunity to deeply rest and recover, then the Carer Valley Escape is for you. If the demands of your caring role amongst other responsibilities and challenges of life have left you on the brink of burn-out and you feel like you’re not coping, please read on and discover how we can support you.

The Carer Valley Escape is purposefully designed for a small group to enhance your opportunity to dive deep in restoration. This includes the care and support of retreat facilitator Lisa Marie who has supported hundreds of carers on retreats and workshops creating safe, tranquil spaces in which participants are able to explore their current state of wellbeing.

This is a gentle experience which provides you with your own beautifully appointed private room with queen size bed and ensuite in which you can rest any time of day and night and recover, knowing you are completely supported and respected while you honour your body and provide it with the nurturing and nourishment it needs. Each bedroom opens on to the deck and verandah taking in the spectacular views.

Caring for others can bring feelings of fulfilment and purpose, but it can also impact your health and wellbeing if you don’t take care of you. At Carer Escapes we recognise that many carers don’t have a safe space to relax. When your body has been running on auto-pilot in a state of chronic stress or hypervigilance for an extended period of time, this can lead to increased anxiety and ultimately overwhelm or burn-out. However, the body is intelligent and has the power to heal. In fact, neuroscience continues to prove the ability to rewire your thought patterns and change behaviours. You have the ability to learn how to bring your body to a state of balance, peace and harmony. In this state you are less reactive and more resilient when the moments, days or weeks get tuff because they can and often do. This is why taking a break and giving your body the time to recalibrate and experience relaxation amidst nature can help you reset, recharge and start over with strength, clarity and enhance your capacity to care.

The power rests in your hands to create desired change it your life however, to recognise your skills and feel empowered to achieve this requires physical and emotional strength. The Carer Valley Escapes provides an opportunity to rebuild your strength through self-care, emotional support and connections.
