We offer a place for peace and relaxation. In this busy modern world it is
imperative for us to have time-out to refresh our Spirit, replenish our
Bodies and clear our Minds. Most of us would love to come to a place like
this, for a few hours, or a few days to just check-out. Cuppacumbalong is
now set up to be that place. The natural environment helps relax the body a
place to reconnect with your True Self, an atmosphere for Earthing,
Discovery, Personal Development, Individual Reflection, and clearing the
mind to see what you are manifesting in your life.
Whether you need to rejuvenate yourself or simply feel you deserve a
relaxing break, you will leave Cuppacumbalong with a renewed sense of
Health, Vitality and Enthusiasm for your life, ready to Manifest what you
want in your future.
This mid-week inner vitality retreat is a focus on self program for small
groups that will run over 3 days with 2 nights' accommodation, shared
We offer this space to people that want to have time-out in their life,
offering a safe space to just be. This also includes relaxation exercise
like stretching, Bush River Walks, an Art project, and Earthing.
Earthing is a method to reconnect us to nature and to balance our energy.
The Earth transfers electrons from the ground into the body. Think of it as
vitamin G=Grounding. This method has been proven to ease anxiety,
depression and irritability, helps us focus and feel centred.
Each day we will explore different techniques that empower you to face the
challenges of life. You will experience meditation, reflection, gentle
movement, drawing/painting making a vision, with space to lighten up and
have a bit of humour, laughter and fun.
On these days we will serve good healthy food; when in season from our
co-operative vegetable garden. You will have the opportunity to see our
sustainable practices and help with whatever we are doing in the gardens,
another Earthing possibility.
You will also have the option during the retreat to have a treatment one on
one with Rhonda. (Extra fee applies
1 ½ hr session for $110)
