Free To Be Me
Women's Retreat
with Amy Harrison & Gerlinda Stella
4 Days / 3 Nights ~ Friday Oct 28 - Monday Oct 31, 2022
Mission Beach, Queensland

~ Come and be nurtured and guided through a fully immersive retreat filled with guided healing and self-exploration. You will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to bring your best self back to your family and life, having spent four days with a group of awesome women in the rainforest, being cooked for and looked after.


~ ​You will get to experience sessions that move from helping you identify your personal colours to best express your physical self, to guided meditations to explore and heal different aspects of your inner self, to a masterclass learning tools to connect with your higher self for guidance and healing. PLUS we have a guest facilitator, Kellie Kennett, teaching kundalini yoga every morning. 


~ You will get to bliss out for three nights in your own hut in the rainforest, with all your meals prepared for you with divine and delicious vegetarian food, and lots of fun and laughter with like minded women to fill and nourish you, body and soul.


~ All supported by holistic healers, Gerlinda Stella and Amy Harrison, who will kindly and gently guide you through the retreat, help you awaken to the next stage of being in your life, and be available to you to share our own journeys and experiences.

Our Retreat Vision 


She's so full of herself
Yes, yes she is. For who else should she be full of? 

She loves herself
​Yes, yes she does, and so she should.


Why shouldn't she be these things?

She's not perfect, but neither does she need to be. None of us are perfect, it's hard - this gig being human. But when she loves herself with compassion and kindness, humour and joy, she can love others the same. There's an ease to her being and she can be in the moment. And there - that is the key. To be in the moment, just as it is. Then she has arrived. She has arrived in herself and there she finds peace. 

Free to Be Me is a retreat for women to connect with themselves and to each other.
Where each woman is supported in her journey, where ever she is at. Creating the time to come back to ourselves. To fill ourselves up so we may be full of life and vitality and spark. The essence of ourselves. Then, from our full and over-flowing cup can we give; freely, with joy and with choice. Unconditionally. Knowing we are worthy of receiving too.

This is how we live as Women Empowered.

What's included:

~ 3 nights accommodation at Sanctuary Retreat
~ Fully catered, nourishing vegetarian breakfasts, lunches and dinners

~ Full program of workshops to reconnect you with yourself, so you leave feeling "full" of yourself

~ 2 x Kundalini Yoga classes

~ Cacao Ceremony
~ Tropical beach and nature walks (with a good chance of spotting a cassowary)

~ Women Empowered gift pack
