This retreat is the perfect time to step away from the outside world and take your awareness inwards to find true inner peace, healing and wellness. You will leave feeling relaxed, restored, and most of all deeply connected to yourself.

Your retreat begins Friday upon arrival at the stunning Russley Retreat,
a charming homestead set in 17 acres of rolling pastures and enchanting gardens with postcard views of the Hunter River. Settle into your accommodation; enjoy a dip in the pool or some time in nature in the magical atmosphere of Russley Retreat. Dinner will commence our weekend journey together followed by an evening of relaxing restorative yoga and supper under the stars.

In the morning you will wake to bird’s song & the sounds of nature. Our day begins with a grounding meditation followed by a wholesome healthy breakfast provided by our hostess Jen - preparing our minds and bodies for the day ahead.

We then move into time with our beautiful herd of horses who are joining us at Russley Retreat for the weekend. With them you will explore a mindful way of being and journey of self-re-discovery, connecting you back to your true nature. A delicious lunch will be enjoyed in the grounds of Russley Retreat, followed by more experiences with the horses.

Your retreat will close with a ceremony of gratitude to ease you back into “real life”.
