The Homecoming Retreat
Ubud, Bali - March 1 - 7, 2023
"The pain you feel is your resistance to accepting your beauty"
~ Mark Spall
I regularly need a reminder of who I truly am.
It has nothing to do with how hard I’m working or busy I am, the wrinkles on my face and cellulite on my thighs, how much money I’m making – or not, what I achieved or didn't, or how “good” a mother, partner, daughter, friend, cook, cleaner and taxi I am.
I need to be reminded of my tender, loving heart. The wonder of my beauty. My exquisite essence. My potent power. The divinity of my sensuality and sexuality. The undeniable truth of who I am. My deep-down-in-my-soul reason for being in this life on this planet.
To do that I need to step away from my ordinary life so that I can connect with the fullness of myself, in a place where there are no distractions, no-one's wanting anything from me, there's no-one to look after, no to-do lists, and there’s nothing for me to organise or plan.
A place where I am nurtured and nourished body, mind and soul, and everything is taken care of for me.
A place where I'm surrounded by the kind of beauty that takes my breath away.
A place where I meet - and am revered in – my power and magnificence.
What You'll Receive
This retreat is not therapy or self-improvement. There's nothing wrong with you and you don't need fixing. Our mission is to bring you home to the truth of who you are.
The first part of the retreat focuses on undoing what's getting in the way of your power, including old stories that don't serve you, the ways you abandon yourself, the masks you wear, the ways you strive to gain validation from others, and the shame you carry. The second part is about rising into the glory of your beauty, power and magnificence.
As you give yourself permission to be who you really are, you'll unleash your life force energy and activate your power. You'll discover whole new levels of love and compassion for yourself, and you'll be ready to take your space in the world without any apology for who you are.
This requires a carefully crafted and well-managed safe environment, wise facilitation, and a community of women who are kind and supportive, who don't criticise or compete with you, and praise and love you.
It includes indulging in pleasure, connecting with the beauty of nature and your body, dancing, celebrating and sharing delicious food. It involves getting out of your head and into your body and heart.
So that's what we'll do together at The Homecoming Retreat, plus you'll:
Learn ancient Taoist practices to cultivate your power and life force energy
Discover your own particular brand of power and purpose and how to express that in your life
Awaken your Inner Wise Woman and learn how to listen to her guidance
Take part in rituals, an ancient sound healing, and a divine feminine cacao ceremony
Meditate, dance, practice Qigong and do shadow work
Discover a deep sense of self-worth and love
Claim your unique beauty, including the beauty of your body
And so much more...
I've worked with women around the world and run sold-out international retreats and workshops, and published three books, including Amazon number one bestsellers. I've navigated divorce, bouts of severe fatigue, doses of depression, chronically abandoning myself (especially in relationships with men), and the kind of crippling grief that had me question how the rest of the world could continue to 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 to reclaim their power and wisdom, and creating group spaces full of safety, support and so much love, where every woman can meet the majesty of her own truth and magnificence.
The Homecoming retreat is the result of my vision and deep desire to restore the beauty, power and pleasure of the Feminine to this world.
The Homecoming Retreat is for every woman who doesn't want to live in the past anymore, bound to old stories of contraction, silence and smallness.
It's for every woman who's ready to choose connection and aliveness instead of numbness. Self-love instead of trying to fill the empty spaces with what doesn't serve her.
It's for every woman who wants to discover radical self-acceptance of her being and her body. More inner peace. More creativity, pleasure, and beauty. More energy and radiance. More genuinely supportive community too.
It's for every woman who's ready to meet the fullness of her power and magnificence.

Your Guide for this Special Remembering
I've had many titles over the years, including award-winning TV and radio journalist and news presenter, business owner, best-selling author, executive coach, astrologer, corporate trainer, voice artist, sacred feminine healing arts teacher and priestess, counsellor, mother, wife, partner and fierce advocate for women's power.
Beyond titles, my sacred purpose is to guide women on their path to power. What matters most to me is redeeming the glory of the Feminine in a world that mostly doesn't know what that means.
This is a process of undoing what we've been told and sold about who and how we should be in this world. Then, in the space that remains, we remember and reconnect with our
innate power. I'm here to tell you it's glorious and magnificent. You are glorious and magnificent.
I stand for our pain, silence, rage, body hatred, shame and disconnection... and our beauty, vulnerability, authenticity, sensuality and pleasure as the path home to our power.
