with Michelle Eckles of Meditation Sunshine Coast
Bush to Beach Meditation Retreat
2-16 September 2022 | 5-19 May 2023
Only 10 spots on each (women only)!
Are you ready for adventure, connection, and to do something for yourself?
Have you always wanted to visit places like Carnarvon, Stanthorpe and 1770 but didn't want to go on your own?
Do you dream of living the van life but want to try one out first?
Does the idea of supporting regional businesses whilst immersing yourself in outback culture make your heart sing?
Want to learn how to slow down, enjoy everyday life, reduce stress and anxiety, sleep better and manage your thoughts and emotions?
"If you feel like there's something out there that you're supposed to be doing - if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it."
These words sum up my new creation perfectly! I have combined my 20+ years of experience in event management with my passion for teaching mindfulness meditation, travel and love of my home state, Queensland, to bring you a unique retreat experience. I'm taking ten women on a 2,000km long campervanning meditation retreat, spanning over two weeks, visiting some of the most beautiful places in Queensland.
Moogerah | Stanthorpe | Roma | Carnarvon | Biloela | 1770 | Gin Gin | Bargara
We will be visiting each of these places with 2-3 nights in most of them to break up the driving and have plenty of time to learn, relax and explore. The average driving time is three hours with additional time allowed for stops and slower vehicles.
There are options to suit everyone from bringing your van or car to hiring a van with accommodation and activities all included.
Meditation for beginners | Self-care workshop | Journal-making | Drum-making | Wineries | Lavender Farm | Cheese Factory | Hiking
With activities and experiences like these it will be a memorable journey for all participants! There will also be plenty of free time for exploring and relaxing.
There will be an information evening for attendees two weeks before departure, going through all the aspects of the retreat and answering any questions you might have. You will also receive a swag bag full of goodies for the trip. :)
