People often say to us: "One day I'll do a retreat" or "I've often thought about doing a retreat."
We heard a great saying: "The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago-the second best time is now."
This is true and also applies to retreats.
Retreats in planning for 2024

This way of working with people (including ourselves)
helps us understand which of our basic needs we're trying
to meet & healthy ways to get there.

Youth workers, Family workers,
Teachers, (of all ages)
Community workers, Managers, Social workers,
Well-being teachers, Counsellors, Health workers,
Aged cared workers, Pastors, NDIS workers (in any role)...
.... you get the idea.

Our retreats (even creative ones) are for stepping back (not running away), to take stock of the now, learn new things, going deeper within before heading forward.
