Radiant & Ready Retreat
* Please note: Due to COVID-19, all international retreats are on hold. Please join my mailing list to be updated when new retreat dates are announced
For every woman there comes a time.
It’s a moment when you say, “Enough. I’m done.”
"I'm done with feeling tired, stressed out and busy."
"I'm done with feeling disconnected from my aliveness, joy and inspiration."
“And after everything I’ve lived through – the love and loss, the pain, the grief, the pushing, the shoving, the striving, the settling, the trying so hard, the compromising, the selling out – I’m ready to choose myself.”
“I’m ready to choose my power and my beauty and my truth."
"I'm ready for more energy and aliveness than I've felt in years."
“I’m ready to fall in love with myself, including my body."
Congratulations. I’m so glad you’re here!
You're invited to your power and radiance
Why does it have to be so hard?
The world wasn't designed for us women and it certainly wasn't designed by us.
If the aliveness, inspiration and joy that you deeply desire seem to be just out of reach you're not alone.
This is the plight of the modern woman. The world doesn't encourage us - and how do we manage anyway - to take time and space to slow down and reconnect with our bodies and pleasure to restore the energy, aliveness and balance for which we so desperately long.
At the Radiant & Ready retreat, you'll remember who you are and discover that balance. More inspiration, radiance, please and potent feminine energy and creativity guaranteed!
What you'll receive
Here's what I promise you at the Radiant & Ready retreat:
A community of women who are kind and supportive.
Lots of fun. So much fun!
Indulging in pleasure, connecting with the beauty of nature and our bodies, dancing, celebrating, playing and delicious food. These are essential for our feminine power to rise and sparkle.
Here's how we'll do it. You'll:
Learning feminine Taoist and Tantric practices to empower you to be more of the amazing woman you really are
Learn how to open your heart and connect with your life force energy, sensuality and vitality (no more depleted woman syndrome)
Discover the power of pleasure (it's such a powerful healer)
Take part in special ceremonies and rituals to let go of the old and invite the new
Meditate, dance, learn Qigong self-healing techniques and do shadow work
Discover a deep sense of self-worth, meaning and love
Awaken and claim your power, beauty and feminine wisdom
And so much more...
A note on Tantra:
Tantra is often misunderstood and tends to conjure a lot of fear for people, mostly with concerns about taking part in unsafe or uncomfortable sexual practices or situations.
I want you to know that some of the practices we'll do in this retreat use sexual energy to help us open our hearts and reach higher states of love. Our sexual energy is simply our creative life force energy. You don't have to have sex to access it, or even use it sexually. Knowing how to work with this energy has many health benefits for our vitality and radiance. That's what we'll work on in this retreat. I guarantee you there'll be no sexual activity or nudity.
Your guide for this special remembering
I've had many titles over the years including award-winning TV and radio journalist and presenter, business owner, best-selling author, executive coach, corporate trainer, astrologer, mother and fierce advocate for women's power. I'm also a Tao Tantric Arts (sacred femininity) teacher.
Beyond titles, what matters to me most is redeeming the glory of the feminine in a world that mostly doesn't even know what that means.
I stand for our pain, silence, rage, body hatred, shame and disconnection... and our beauty, vulnerability, sensuality and pleasure as the path back to our power.
I've worked with hundreds of women around the world in the past ten years, and presented to hundreds more. I've run sold-out workshops and retreats, and published two books including an Amazon number one bestseller. I've also lived a lot of life. I've navigated divorce, bouts of severe fatigue, doses of depression and anxiety, and the kind of crippling grief that made me question how the rest of the world could function normally around me. Each time I've risen from the ashes, fuelled by self-trust and a belief in my worth and who I'm here to be in this world.
I'm known for helping women step into and own their power, and creating spaces filled with safety, support and so much love, where every woman can come to the majesty of her own truth and magnificence.
Radiant & Ready is the result of my vision and deep desire to restore the beauty, power and pleasure of the feminine to our world.
Who is this retreat for?
Radiant & Ready is for every woman who, deep down, sense there has to be more.
It's for every woman who's ready for lots more energy and to feel more alive than she has in years.

It's for every woman who's ready to take her space in the world without apology for who she is.

It's for every woman who values herself enough to take time out from her ordinary world and step into the temple of herself, to remember who she is.
