About the Event
"Working with the cycles of nature and the cosmos offers us a beautiful opportunity to deepen our connection with ourselves, that we are cyclical beings and mirrors of nature, the moon and the stars." - Sadie
We’re inviting you to join us for a refreshing and deeply nourishing day retreat to reset with the wisdom of the emerging energies of nature, awakening from hibernation as the light continues to grow and the waxing moon as we work deeply with the elements in all their beautiful various forms.
The Season -
The seasons are at a transitional time, we are edging closer to Spring and away from the the depths of Winter where our energy had retreated inwards, the cycles of nature are calling us out of our metaphorical caves, to stretch and shake out our winter limbs and clear the decks for new beginnings, new growth and renewal.
The Sun and The Moon -
We are in Pisces season, the last sign of the Zodiac, the two fishes swimming in opposite directions representing endings and beginnings. A water element sign that invites us to connect more deeply with our emotional, creative and imaginative self. Opposite the sun we have the moon waxing and close to her Spring phase, we’ll be harnessing these growing, building energies for our Awakening Retreat.
Cold Water Therapy -
We’ll be working literally with the water element in our beautiful location with a lake for cold water swimming. The cold water assists the body in withdrawing the blood to the body’s core, bringing the energy to the centre of the body and invigorating the whole system for a complete reboot, refresh and sense of renewal, giving your immune system a boost.

Breatholution: Kevin O’Neill is helping people across the country through Breathwork, cold exposure therapy and self discovery. He’s taken over a thousand people into the cold water and has witnessed some incredible transformations time and time again around the water of the holotropic Breathwork. His work his helping so many in dealing with trauma, anxiety and PTSD recovery. Working with him changed my life in one session. He’s extremely busy and in-demand with an ever-growing following so we’re really excited to be collaborating with him!
The Food: Lauren Breckon from Sin Free Kitchen will be providing our vegan, nutritious food. Lauren is my bandmate in Gypsy River, we will be singing the medicine song too.
