About this Event

  • Have you been struggling through a recent life challenge and looking for a supportive space and a step by step pathway to help yourself rise up, recover and transform overwhelm into calm clarity?
  • Are you craving to simply press pause and have time out to rest and reflect, gather your energy and nurture your own health all with the added luxury you deserve to treat yourself?
  • Would you like a clear and simple method developed by women for women, to guide you toward building resilience and creating the life you deserve?
  • Are you seeking a luxurious health escape with spa facilities, 5 star service and award winning dining?

We would love to welcome you on our next Synergy Women Rise UP Women's LUXURY Retreat at Spicers Tamarind!

This luxury retreat is designed to offer women the opportunity to simply press pause, nurture their health and learn the essential steps and skills to build resilience, presence and grace to overcome life’s challenges.

Over four inspiring days this retreat is designed with you in mind, to provide a nurturing space for you to create the life you deserve and to give you a clear method to rise up with authenticity and grace. All with the added luxury of Spicers Tamarind. Immerse yourself in all that Spicers has to offer- a pampering spa afternoon, delicious food, surrounding nature and serenity, all with daily inspiring seminars, yoga, meditation and a chance to feel rested, nurtured and completely refreshed.

Spicers Tamarind Retreat is a finalist in the Best Wellness Hotel category in the Spice Hot 100 Hotels and Venue Awards 2020.

A getaway at Spicers Tamarind Retreat is an extraordinary experience, an Asian-influenced oasis that feels like you’re a world away, surrounded by natural beauty and tranquillity. Western luxury with eastern tranquility.

My name is Nichole Hamilton I'm a physiotherapist with 20 years of experience in teaching and educating women with their health. I am a mindfulness meditation teacher, a Demartini facilitator, a business owner, a yoga teacher and have spent over 15 years teaching workshops all over Australia.

Like you, I have also struggled through significant life challenges that brought me to a crossroads. I recall feeling lost at sea without a life raft or support crew in sight. My health was affected, my brain and memory were affected, and my life felt like a tipped-out jigsaw puzzle and I was struggling to piece it together.

In my journey to recovery, I ground to a heavy halt on many occasions. Self-help courses, psychologists, yoga, prayer, books, gurus, counselling, running, mantras, diving in the ocean, Vitamin B, support groups, mindfulness- I tried it all! Not one of these things alone provided me with the solutions I was craving to help me recover. I felt like I was at the bottom of the ocean looking up and wondering how I would ever find the surface.

I wanted to do more than just survive each day.

I found myself asking?

  • How will I ever recover from this?
  • What is happening to my brain and will I ever be able to think clearly again?
  • How long is this going to last?

Over the last five years I have gathered valuable tools from all over the world and pieced them together in a clear structured format that I call “The Synergy Women's Rise UP Method” to help women, just like you, find their way up through a crisis.

These are the tools I wish I had 5 years ago!

I am now offering them out to women simply because I don’t want women to be floundering like I did to overcome life’s challenges. I want women to have the chance to learn a clear survival pathway, to build resilience and authenticity, to recover and rise up from challenges, to create the life they deserve- all offered within a restful 4 days of a peaceful luxurious escape.

Using this exact framework, I transformed my life from a place of despair to immense gratitude, creativity and joy. As a result of using The Rise UP Method I have moved from survive to thrive and have created the life I want to live.

I look forward to sharing this process with you over a beautiful 4 days on the Sunshine coast where you also get to nurture YOU with daily yoga, pilates, meditation, great conversation, delicious food and a pampering spa afternoon.

Are you ready to press pause for well-deserved me time? Are you ready to take a step in the direction that can guide you to the surface? Are you ready to transform grief into gratitude? Overwhelm and stress into calm clarity?

Rosie: Having the opportunity to participate on Niky’s retreat was a wonderful experience and one which will stay with me for a long time. The retreat was set in beautiful surroundings. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed with a wonderful morning of yoga followed by a delicious lunch. My fellow participants were a lovely group of women from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes but we had one thing in common, our desire to enrich our lives with a course in resilience, health and well-being. We all clicked immediately and from start to finish enjoyed each other’s company enormously learning that everyone has a story. The food was absolutely beautiful. We were treated to a massage or a pedicure or facial. There was also time to read, go for a walk or a swim. I returned home feeling as though I had been touched by a magic stick, walking on air feeling refreshed and relaxed with lots of ideas on how to live my life to the fullest.

Thank you Rosie and Tracey!
