CLEARING - A Summer Wellness Retreat

CLEARING - A Summer Wellness Retreat

Thursday, 9 February to Sunday, 12 February Commencing 3pm and finishes 3pm
2962 Tathra-Bermagui Rd, Murrah NSW 2546, Australia

This 3-day retreat invites you on a journey of self-compassion, where time to pause and breathe creates a ‘clearing’.  Perhaps a remembering of what it feels like to be kind and open hearted, or a renewed energy, or a connection with your natural flow state, all whilst surrounded by pristine nature.

Your retreat facilitator Kendra Boone is a trauma sensitive yoga therapist who will be guiding you into natural healing states over your stay, so you’ll leave feeling calm and clear, and ready for the year ahead.

We'll be welcomed onto Yuin country by elder Aunty Glenda, sharing our stories in ceremony with deep respect for our collective wisdom.

Accommodation

Murrah Dream Retreat accommodation

Murrah Dream Retreat is set on 25 acres of pristine bush on the Sapphire coast 3 hours south of Canberra, and 6 hours south of Sydney. Only 15 minutes from the village of Bermagui, Murrah Dream Retreat is a peaceful haven away from the hustle of everyday life. Accommodation is relaxed and comfortable but the land upon which Murrah Dream resides is unquestionably the highlight. In the distance, Gulaga Mountain (the sacred women’s mountain) gazes upon us. The healing energy emanating from the land that holds space for rejuvenation, inspiration, meditation, connection to nature and self.

Program MENU

The program will vary according to the weather patterns and the vibe of the day.  You are free to choose what rhythms suit you!

Please note that Yoga here, refers to all the traditional limbs, which includes asana (body shapes for embodiment), pranayama (life force movement through breath practices), pratyahara (bringing senses inward to settle), dharana (focusing mind), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (connection to the whole or one).

Kendra Boone

Kendra Boone

A healing arts practitioner and wellness retreats leader, who specialises in trauma recovery and embodiment, Kendra is an expert in stress management and mind/body skill-building with a focus on safely re-connecting her clients to their body so that they may engage more fully with their life.

With almost 30 years of experience, Kendra began her career as an exercise scientist, which soon evolved into a certified Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga facilitator, offering yoga therapy, reflexology and meditation. Kendra strongly believes in the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate and says in the current climate, too many people are denied this. Her clients receive a highly individualised self-care plan, which includes an integrated hands-on approach using clinical reflexology and yoga therapy, empowering them to be active participants in their own healing at a time when modern medicine fails to offer lasting health solutions.
