A Day Out To Tune Back In

IMAGINE a day of peace and stillness... a day of deep connection to who you really are.

IMAGINE a guided adventure into a blissful natural world... and the support to expand even more of what's possible for you.


Welcome to the Peace Adventure...

The Peace Adventure is an epic 1 Day adventure created to radically DEEPEN your connection to nature and YOURSELF.

It’s about taking a MINI BREAK into the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland, getting out of your normal day-to-day experience so that you can tune back into yourself and what really matters

Why is it so important to take time out like this??

Some days it's too easy for stress, tension and anxiety to BUILD UP in your mind, body and spirit...

When we get caught up in the everyday pressures of work and traffic and deadlines and shopping and people to look after that, we can sometimes forget what being physically PRESENT and RELAXED really is about.

What's the Peace Adventure About?

Our first epic Peace Adventure will be facilitated by the Movement Monk Benny Fergusson. Hop on the bus and join us for an incredible trip from the Gold Coast up into Springbrook National Park!

Benny is all about finding your own harmony between body, mind and spirit - and we created this event to really show case that.

It's going to be awesome!!

-> It’ll be a day of LEARNING about ourselves, our minds and bodies...

-> A day of PEACE, awareness and finding a HARMONY with the natural world...

-> A day of EXPLORATION, adventure and DEEPLY NOURISHING ourselves...

-> And a day of FUN, laughter and new CONNECTIONS...

Hope to see you there!!

About Our Facilitator - Benny Fergusson

Our very first adventure is being led by The Movement Monk, Benny Fergusson. If you’ve never met Benny then as clichéd as this sounds, you are in for a treat. He’s hard to put into words but we will do our very best…

Benny is possibly the most GROUNDED and PEACEFUL man we’ve ever met!


He has dedicated over a decade of his life to studying the human body and its potential for whole body health, relaxation and tension release. His ideas on optimal movement probably differ greatly to what you might've heard from many other sources and he is a freakin’ master at helping individuals unlock their own healing potential.

Benny works with a huge range of clients in Australia and internationally with his private sessions and through group trainings and retreats. His approach has helped elite athletes, office workers, injured retirees, busy entrepreneurs and busy mums (and more!) create greater levels of FREEDOM in themselves and their bodies.

He believes that no one understands your body better than you so he wants nothing more than for each of us to move back into and starting living with the natural state of health we were all born with.

Did we mention he’s CHILLAXED AF?

In his words, Benny offers his students a MINDFUL approach to cultivating a joy-filled body. His focus is on healing the body and mind from the inside-out through observation, zero-judgment based movement and stillness practices.

"At the heart of a body you love is a nourishing physical practice."

During the Peace Adventure, Benny will offer you PRACTICAL experiences and wisdom that will allow you to engage with your own body in a more natural way.

Plus a COLD PLUNGE!!


Yep in the middle of winter….

In a cold mountain stream at the base of a waterfall...

*** Note…. we are not nuts it’s actually a thing that’s great for your health - have you heard of Wim Hof? or ice-bathing? They are awesome so we thought this would be a good idea to try too… (and it’s not compulsory if that’s a bit much for you lol)

Omg the things we do to learn and grow!!

Based on what we love about Benny we’ve asked him to create an experience to help us all experience:

  • Freedom and harmony within the body

  • Peacefulness of mind and body (and not just when meditating!)

  • Energy and joy

  • Connection to the breath

  • Deep connection with nature

  • Abilities to cope with or decrease tension, anxiety and physical stress

We can’t wait to see what he delivers!!


What’s the Plan for the Day?

Here’s an overview of the day’s itinerary (we will do our best to follow this structure):

  • 7.30am - The Awesome Bus does first pickup of adventurers from Profit Spaces (50A Wharf St, Tweed Heads)

  • 8.00am - The Awesome Bus does a second pick up of adventurers from Burleigh Heads Coach Stop (Gold Coast Highway outside the Burleigh Bowls Club)

  • 8.15am - Drive up intro Springbrook National Park - on the way we’ll be learning some practices from Benny for deep self awareness and how to make the most out of the day.

  • 9.30am - Arrive at our Start point…. Begin our trek! There’ll be approx 3 hours of walking through the pristine hiking tracks of Springbrook - we’ll be walking in silence so we can truly connect with ourselves and the natural environment.

  • We’ll break up the walk with stops for lunch, for a cold plunge/dip at one of the waterfalls (if you’re brave!), for some deep meditations, more lessons from Benny and insights into movement and releasing tension from our minds and bodies.

  • 4.00pm - we’ll arrive back at the Awesome Bus by now - and watch the sunset at another epic lookout location nearby.

  • by 5.00pm - start our trip back to the Coast, with drop offs at Burleigh and Tweed Heads (same 2 location as the pick ups).

*** We expect the trip to be complete by 7.00pm yet this may be slightly earlier or later depending on the experience and time frames of the day.

The Peace Adventure includes:

  • Return Bus trip from Tweed Heads or Burleigh to Springbrook National Park (you want to travel with us so as there will be training and content during the trip - please contact us if you have questions about this)

  • A day of training and experiences with Benny Fergusson (just the training with Benny is valued at $250 for the day at least!) including:

    • Tools for developing your mind/body awareness

    • Silent walk to drop deep into your own awareness

    • An introduction to Standing Meditation practice

    • Daily Strategies for Releasing Physical Tension

    • A Cold Plunge!

    • And more!! (bring your best questions about mind, body and movement for Benny too!)

  • Catered vegetarian lunch, snacks and refreshments

  • Printed resources for some of the day’s key content

  • Pre-adventure tips from Benny on how to start deepening your self awareness for real mind-body wisdom

  • Walk through some of the most beautiful forest the GC hinterland has to offer! The walk is about 3 hours long and suitable for most levels of fitness (there's some steeper sections yet we will move at a moderate pace). Please connect with us if you have any questions about this.

  • The walk includes multiple waterfalls and streams, incredible lookouts/views, huge rock formations and overhanging cliff/cave sections.

  • Great connections and new conversations with an awesome community!


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We suggest the content and experience will be most useful for those aged 12 and up - so please be prepared to leave your younger children with someone else for the day.

  • A backpack or bag that’s easy to carry

  • A notebook & pen (if you want to take notes)

  • Bathers to dip in

What kind of food will there be (I have special dietary requests)?

We are planning a healthy, nourishing vegetarian meal for lunch - with some light snacks and drinks throughout the day. Please let us know if you have any specific requests in advance (we will do our best to cater for that if we can).

We will have water on the bus for you to fill up - yet we do request you bring your own water bottle for refilling.
