If you have ever tried to transform your health in some way only to revert back to old habits, then this retreat is for you!

About this event

There is a lot out of our control right now but also a lot we CAN do. Rather than feel fearful, anxious and resigned about the state of the world let’s BE the change and realise our power to make a real difference!

Perhaps the global pandemic has derailed your healthy habits or has left you in extra need of a serious unwind. Or you're simply ready to start your wellness journey, recharge your batteries, detox or take your health to a whole new level?

Whatever the reason, we'd love you to join us at this uniquely special two day Wellness Week-end at beautiful Riverdell Spiritual Centre!

This week-end has been designed for you to unwind from the regular hustle of a stressful life....in nature. It is a week-end for you to restore harmony and balance in your life. To 'fill your bucket,' to create goals, to reflect on what's important to you and to nourish your mind, body and soul. Most importantly, the intention is that you will learn how to apply all the wellness principles taught over the week-end into your day to day life.

WELLNESS WEEK-ENDS incorporate everything - from creating goals and vision boards to exercise regimes for busy people plus yoga and meditation. Also, learn how to grow produce in your own back garden (and workplace), make quick, simple, nutrient-dense meals for your family, nutritious snacks for children and even how to pack a healthy lunch box!

Add to this the latest research on the connection between your gut, immune and your health, the effect of environmental toxins, the power of gratitude, chakra healing.....and so much more!


The outcome will be that you:

✅ Spend a day focusing on your health and wellness

✅ Learn how to make small, simple, consistent dietary and lifestyle changes at home and in the workplace to support your health and lifestyle goals

✅ Learn strategies to deal with anxiety, stress and maintaining a work / life balance

✅ Leave feeling empowered to make fully informed educated choices about your health and the health of your family

✅ Become more aware of alternative health care choices for you and your family

✅ Feel confident in your body's own healing ability

This unique day retreat focuses on prevention and healing using evidence-based dietary and lifestyle changes. Our core philosophy is bio-individuality; a no one-size-fits-all approach to cleanse, nourish and balance.

Environmental Toxins

  • Simple ways to detox your body and home
  • Clean Living on a Budget

Everyday we are bombarded with toxins from our environment; chemicals in our homes, electromagnetic radiation, processed foods, stress, heavy metals, medication and indulgent, unhealthy lifestyle habits which can all negatively impact our liver and digestive system. Mounting research indicates that many forms of dis-ease are now linked to an accumulation of toxins in the body. This may seem overwhelming, but the good news is there is plenty you can do to reduce your toxic burden.

SANDRA SCALZI, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Primary School Teacher. Founder of The Whole Slice - Healthy catering for Kids

Did you know ? A staggering 97% of all Australians don’t eat enough vegetables each day and the numbers are even worse for those under 18 (99.5 per cent of children are not eating enough vegetables). Over a third of the kilojoules (energy) consumed each day come from unhealthy options like cakes, biscuits, take away, confectionery, drinks and alcohol. No wonder we are in the midst of an immune-related crisis?

We are all responsible for the health of future generations! So regardless of whether you are a mother, grandmother, aunt or educator this session will inspire you to make a difference in the health of our children.

Sandra will share what's in her family's natural medicine chest plus she will demonstrate how to make healthy snacks for children and how to pack a healthy lunch box.

Louise Macartney created the “ᴇᴠᴇʀʏ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴅɪꜰꜰᴇʀᴇɴᴄᴇ” project as a legacy to her family (her parents and siblings have all passed away from preventable diseases) and her best friend, Liz, who died of Leukaemia in 2017. Also for all the people you have loved and lost.

The core philosophy of the project is prevention - to inspire people to make small, simple, consistent dietary and lifestyle changes because every little difference...makes a difference.

Acknowledging that many retreats require a significant financial investment Louise is committed to offering this everything-in-one-day retreat at an affordable price for everyone. Because of the staggering impact Covid-19 has had on Australian small businesses Louise also offers an opportunity, at each retreat, for experienced wellness practitioners to present, connect and collaborate with other practitioners and their local community.

Funds raised from the retreat will go towards creating “ᴇᴠᴇʀʏ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴅɪꜰꜰᴇʀᴇɴᴄᴇ” campaigns and resources to empower people, throughout Australia, to make simple, sustainable changes to improve their health. Not only will you transform your own health by attending but, by doing so, potentially transform the health of others too!
