About this event

NATURE RETREAT DAY 9.30am - 4.30pm

🌿 Slow down,

🌿 Breathe in the nature of your being,

🌿 Let go of busyness and invite in spaciousness…

Gift yourself a whole day to disconnect, turn off your phone, and immerse yourself in a green and fertile land, full of trees and birds.

With an intimate group of others, you'll be guided to reconnect to the nature around you and inside of you, in authentic and embodied ways.

Through individual exploration and group sharing, Pasha and Merryl will guide you to listen deeply to Nature as our Teacher, supporting you to find new meaning and connection in your life, and enhancing feelings of belonging and well-being.

As we honour the Ancestors of this land and the practices of listening that are fundamental to all ancestral lineages, we remember ourselves back into relationship with the Earth, with each other, and with ourselves.

We could call this “mindfulness” but in truth, listening deeply is an innate way of being. You've done this naturally many times, on holidays or sitting on the Verandah at the weekend. But with all the pressures of modern life like traffic, deadlines, demands on our time… do you notice how difficult it can be to press the pause button sometimes?… Yet we know how good it feels to stop!

Even science is now proving that time in nature enhances feelings of well-being, improves immunity, lowers our stress response, restores cognitive function and even reduces cardiovascular disease.

So why not treat yourself to a whole day of human BEing!

🌿 We will be:

  • Listening deeply to our bodies, minds and hearts
  • Sharing our hearts and hearing the hearts of others
  • Enjoying the simple pleasures of life
  • Awakening presence through 'sensefulness'
  • Opening to the magic of life in the wild

🌿 Our Day includes:

  • Guided meditations
  • Guided nature connection sessions
  • Hours to be with the trees and birds
  • Sitting in circle sharing stories
  • Delicious snacks, lunch, tea & coffee
  • Sacred song and ritual
  • Ancestral connection
  • Books, audio and further trainings to integrate your practice after the retreat

Merryl (Heart Earth Radiance) and Pasha(Listening Deeply) will be your guides, both of whom are experienced mindfulness in nature practitioners and passonate about slowing down, heartfulness and feeling alive!

You'll leave knowing how to practise mindfulness in nature, supporting you to feel nourished and able to navigate life’s challenges, with an increased feeling of belonging to this land, to others and yourself.

Relax and enjoy being cooked for, with our delicious home-made vegan and gluten-free food, to nourish your body as well as your mind, heart and soul.

We'll provide access to free guided audio to help you continue your journey, so you can keep benefitting long after this day retreat is over!

🌿 For a luxurious and unwinding upgrade, we offer a limited number of healing sessions and overnight stays. Why not spoil yourself with a whole weekend of retreat?!


Feathertail Nature Refuge is 22 acres of protected land on Jinbara Garumngar Country. Nestled within sacred valleys and waterways in cooee of D’Aguilar National Park, let this simple off-grid property support your reconnection to nature, to others and to yourself.

We acknowledge with gratitude the traditional caretakers, the Jinibara Garumngar people, and pay respects to their elders, past, present and emerging.

We pay deep respect to the "Dadirri" practice of deep listening, as taught by Aunty Miriam Ungunmerr-Baumann. Merryl has sat with Aunty Miriam in Daly River, and has been given permission to share this work.

10% of all event profits will go to the Miriam Rose Foundation, to support the charity's work in sharing Dadirri.
