Change your life. Free yourself from shame

A weekend retreat in the beautiful Blue Mountains, NSW

Friday 28th February to Sunday 1st March, 2020

Shame can impact every part of your life. It can affect your health & wellbeing, your relationships, your job, your family life, your finances, and your self-esteem. It can be crippling and paralysing. And it can dominate your life.

What is your relationship with shame? If shame is a part of your life (even in a small way) come and join us to explore what shame is, where it comes from, how it affects you, how it holds you back, and what you can do about it.


I have been successfully facilitating workshops exploring shame for over 5 years. Many people have shared with me how much the workshops have helped them. Now, for the first time, we are going to spend a whole weekend delving deeply into the grip that shame has on you and how you can free yourself from that grip and gain agency and personal power. We will use multidimensional techniques and processes, and there will be complete confidentiality.

PLEASE NOTE: The total participant number will be restricted to only ten people. This will ensure that we establish a comfortable, intimate space.

In order to begin dealing with shame there are two steps. The first is simply acknowledging to ourselves the shame we carry. The second is to allow ourselves to start the process. The difficulty is that so many people actually carry shame about having shame! Yes, that’s true. I highly recommend that you take the first step and just show up. We'd love to see you (especially the parts of you that have been made ‘wrong’ or shameful).


# After-care is available for anything that comes up during the retreat.

What are the differences between shame, guilt, embarrassment and humiliation?
   In fact
   In this workshop we establish two agreements:

   1) We agree to not repeat anything that people have said about themselves during the workshop; and   

   2) We agree to not talk about who was there.

   That said, no-one is under any obligation to talk about themselves unless they want to.


Prices include accommodation and all meals.

Cost: $360

Earlybird special: $310 (For bookings up to and including 7th February)
