What is “Boundless Self Love: Invoking the Warrior Woman” Retreat 2019 all about?
Boundless Self Love Retreat 2019 is all about finding your COURAGE, STRENGTH, POWER and VOICE to enrich your life and nourish your soul.
Throughout the Red Tent Australia community, we often hear stories of how challenging life can become, how difficult it can be to connect and feel supported by other women, and most importantly that we aren’t getting the time necessary to cultivate the self-love that we all desperately need. The right self-love can contribute to building confidence, making us better women within our society, better mums, better partners, more effective friends and workers.
Many women are starved for an opportunity to connect, they can’t find the time away from their partners & kids, work and daily routine invariably gets in the way and then there is always getting over the fear of meeting new people one-on-one. Fear of being judged, or not liked or whatever the case may be.
And so, it is; Boundless Self Love- Invoking the Warrior Woman Retreat 2019: An opportunity for women to be open to the possibilities of new or re-connection, with themselves, fellow women and with the nature around them. This retreat will be set on 150 acres of beautiful bushland, we would also like to offer the women the ability to use more of this land with courage building outdoor activities like Archery, Low Ropes and the Leap of Faith and of course bush walks.
Pampering your body and soul, allows you the space to feel free, supported and connected, that is the main aim with this retreat. This is about coming away for a weekend to fill your cup, leave feeling rejuvenated, empowered, confident and connected.

The type of women who are likely to attend Boundless Self Love Retreat 2019 are mainstream, non-denominational women of varying socio-economic levels. For some, coming to Boundless Self Love Retreat 2019 is a very big sacrifice for their family.
Although many women attending will have an interest in spirituality, Boundless Self Love Retreat 2019 has been designed to be inclusive of all types of women and religions and therefore we ask that all workshops are targeted towards a more mainstream audience
(Although we love to include creativity and diversity)
We are very flexible in the delivery of the workshop/activity and provide the following suggestions when planning your session
