IT’S TIME TO INVOKE YOUR WARRIOR WOMAN!!
Join us for Red Tent Australia’s 2019 Boundless Self-Love Retreat: Invoking the Warrior Woman!
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 Retreat, 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 220 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 Event Program
Boundless Self Love Retreat 2019 will run for 2 days (including 1 overnight stay) beginning 8 am Saturday 25th to 3 pm Sunday 26th May. The event is designed to assist women to connect with themselves and each other in a supportive and fun environment.
Events include: ~Facilitated Workshops – The Workshops this year are themed around popular talking topics for women: Empowerment and Confidence, Self-Image and Creative Expression, Self-Defense. ~Over the course of the weekend, it is our goal that we will come to understand that it is self-love, not self-sacrifice that ultimately fosters respect, and sets the bar for higher expectations, lessening the possibility of low self-value being a factor and leading to relationship issues and abuse. ~Topics that are spiritual about becoming more centered and peaceful, guided in life or about awakening you. ~We will hold meditations and yoga sessions as well. ~This year we are focusing on “Invoking the Warrior Woman” and so we will invite participants to take part in outdoor courage building activities like Archery, Low Ropes and the “Leap of Faith”! ~Natural Therapies – A segment purely designed for instant ‘self-love’ through pampering and soul nourishment where treatment rooms will be set up for our retreat guests. Offerings will include massages, reiki, tarot, psychic readings, facials, aromatherapy, reflexology & sound healings and more! ~Facilitated Activities – Various activities will take place over the weekend, these could include basket weaving, painting & mandala creating. ~Evening Entertainment – A combination of Spoken Word Poetry, Singing, Drumming, fire twirling, and other entertainment. ~Catering – This year we have sourced our own amazing caterer who provides wholesome, organic, healthy and nourishing foods. ~Saturday’s Retreat Market featuring RTA Corporate Members will run from midday to 4 pm. ~Following an eventful day on Saturday, our retreat guests will have the opportunity to solidify their connections via a fun-filled evening. Accompanied by a fabulous musician to set the mood, our guests may prefer to sit and chat around the open campfire, dance and sing until their heart’s content and/or get involved in several other fun activities. ~A deluxe clothing swap will also be held all weekend, bring your unwanted clothes and return home with a new wardrobe!. ~Sunday morning brings Yoga, Meditation and Bush Walks. Then the day is filled with Dancing and Craft activities, Self Defence classes and more fabulous workshops. ~This time for you will create a ripple effect that those around you will feel. Come back to yourself and experience the love and connection of your sisters within the feminine energy of the Red Tent; a safe place where you are welcomed with open arms and a familiar face. ~This is the 3rd Boundless Self-Love Retreat, and we are so excited to welcome you (back)! ~It is a celebration of the collective feminine and the role we often play in shaping connections within our communities. Set over a relaxing yet exciting 2 day, 1-night program this Retreat offers participants an opportunity to look within themselves while also making new connections with like-minded women. ~Several options for accommodation from dorm accommodation to twin share. ~Through a series of workshops, social programs, and professional holistic treatments, participants will walk away feeling refreshed, restored and ready to take in more of their life’s journey. ~Our Retreat Info & Merch Space will have a variety of items for sale from our facilitators and practitioners, as well as booking registration info, program schedules and Lost & Found. ~The Retreat is suitable for women aged 18 and up. We are conscious of not presenting issues to girls who have not experienced the topics being discussed. Our focus for the Retreat is to create a space for women to freely express, and focus on, themselves.
