Wrapping up 2021

4 December 10– 3pm, 2021

Due to NSW Government health regulations only vaccinated people can now attend this retreat. We require knowing your vaccination status (it's on our booking form) and view your vaccination certificate on arrival. As an extra precaution we will be asking people to wear masks AND we will have no more than 1 person per 4 square metre - even though the government has changed this to 1 per 2sq metres.

2021 is nearly finished, some say-with relief. It's been another covid interrupted year and...  


It would be great before planning for a new year to reflect on the one that’s been!

When Donald Schön wrote his book on reflection in 1987 he probably didn't realise how far reaching his ideas would go- health care, teaching, students, designers, researchers, business, leadership, the list is long of areas where they recognise and try to embed reflective practice. If you want to read how reflecting is good for us visit here.




As the year rolls to a close, join us spending time doing things that some of the world's best leaders do:

Contemplative exercises to reflect on & review the year with an attitude of gratitude,  freeing equipping us to look ahead.

       Reflecting on the year as it passes,

                                                                             Expressing gratitude for good things, 

                                       Acknowledging difficulties in 2021,

                                                                        Reflect & focus on your core values,

             Saying goodbye to the year that has been,

                               while connecting to nature &  using some creativity                                                                                                 (no artistic talent required-truly)

Being ready for 2022-  to plan, to say 'yes' to some things and 'no' to others,  ready for whatever the next year throws out & free to dream.

Your investment is worth $100,

BUT just pay what you can afford

A light lunch included

"I believe that evaluated reflection turns experience into insight" John Maxwell (https://www.1africa.tv/looking-back-over-my-shoulder/)

A gratitude practice trains the brain to be more in tune with experiencing gratitude — a positive plus a positive, equal more positives. https://positivepsychology.com/benefits-of-gratitude/

We'll get ready for the year ahead, not by planning, but by clarifying each persons core values.

If this resonates for you, then put aside this one day to join us to take stock before rushing into the Christmas season & be more ready to meet a new year.
