An invitation to changemakers, system thinkers and co-creators to nourish self and community in a virtual weekend retreat. We invite you to join as a participant, a supporter, and listener, but most of all, to join as your whole, beautiful self.

Together we will sit in circle to honour our unique skills, contributions and accomplishments, because our work can often go unseen.

We’ll spend time building relationships in connection pods, and we’ll support each other through emerging challenges in peer coaching circles. We’ll listen to colleagues about the journey of their own practice, in turn, helping to reflect on our own. All, so we might feel part of a field, rather than a solo adventurer.

We’ll nurture our ways of doing and being, by exploring embodied practices, connecting to nature, and engaging with movement and sound. So we can support and sustain ourselves, and our community in this work.

*tickets are available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Codes of Care

We will take advantage of the opportunity to convene virtually, to enable participation from far and wide and ensure an event that is affordable. But we understand all too well the zoom fatigue, and have crafted an event with spacious breaks, individual offline reflections, field trips to nature and always the opportunity to tap out when you need. Our intention is to nourish and support you as a practitioner, and our community as a collective.

Our approach is trauma informed and we’ll make every effort to ensure you are supported. At any point in time you can connect with our Therapist Co-Facilitator Kylie.

Schedule overview

More details about retreat design and session times will be available as we get closer to the event.


Because this is a virtual retreat, you can participate from anywhere there is access to nature and strong reliable internet! You might like to take yourself away for the weekend to a comfortable and quiet space to support your own reflection and rejuvenation.
