Rest Restore and Recover

A Therapist’s Retreat Weekend 25-27 November 2022
Coming Home to your Centre

For the past 3+ years you have been holding your clients through the upheavals, trauma, and challenges of everything from fires to floods to pandemic to family crisis as well as your own personal lives. Compassion fatigue may have set in and you’re feeling tired and stretched. Where’s the fun and joy in your work and home life? Perhaps it’s time for YOU to receive some self-care time to recover your passion, your creativity, and your sense of humour. After hearing your stories and struggles I would like to offer you some restorative time in the country.

Come to peaceful Kangaroo Valley and share a weekend with like-minded therapists to:

  • Refresh your spirits with yoga and guided meditations.
  • Release some of the confusion and strain through psychodrama enactments.
  • Find inner quiet and peace of mind with gentle body work.
  • Restore your body with playful NIA.
  • Enliven your soul with expressive arts.
  • Gain new insights and creative interventions with your clients as well.
