Uncover Your Feminine
Heart, Spirit and Abundance
Your Soul Is Calling
Can You Hear Her?
Nestled in the cosy township of Daylesford, Victoria, time slows down, cool breezes blow, flowers bloom and magic abounds. This is divinely feminine and rich country where you can think wider, deeper, and more lovingly about your life, relationships, career, business. Inspiring women, healing spring waters, organic fare and a soft new moon will surround you. All while you uncover the richness of your own feminine flow, power and alchemy. You will be gently supported to open up to the infinite wisdom of your soul and the impact you have been bought into this world to truly create. This is a transformative experience that will help you serve yourself and those you care about the most – your family, friends, sisters and clients – at a deeper and more loving level.
Thursday 25th May
You will arrive early afternoon and settle into your beautiful accommodation at The Manor House in Daylesford. Have a cup of tea, a raw treat, breathe in the country air and meet your retreat sisters. We will come together in a beautiful welcome circle to begin our journey with the Divine followed by a vibrant discussion on the re-emergence of the Divine Feminine and the power of what She is and can be for us all. After a candlelit dinner together we will have a fun workshop on connecting to the power of the Goddess.
Friday 26th May
Start your morning with a delicious shared breakfast. Throughout the day we will have workshops on how to develop a sacred practice to nurture you every day, understanding your feminine cycles and balancing your masculine and feminine energies – especially in how they relate to your career or business. There will be time to explore the beautiful township of Daylesford, have your portrait taken in a gorgeous outdoor setting by our photographer or simply rest before dinner. Then we will spend some quiet time together in reflection of our current life and desires, setting guiding intentions with the gentle power of the May new moon. At a divine outdoor altar we will charge our intentions with nature, love and commitment, and if you’re feeling up to it – a barefoot dance party by candlelight!
Saturday 27th May
Today is all about feminine wisdom and play! Start the morning with some Shakti breathing and movement and then there will be some lively q and a time with your retreat leaders. Bring all your questions on the Divine, life, confidence, business, client attraction – whatever you wish to be able receive some guidance about from two soulfully successful entrepreneurs. For the rest of the day enjoy being pampered at a Hepburn Springs Spa where you will bathe in a warm mineral pool and luxuriate with either an organic facial, relaxation massage or body polish. Bliss. We will then enjoy a special celebratory dinner in a private dining room at the world-renowned Lakehouse Restaurant.
Sunday 28th May
Have a gentle sleep in or go for a nature walk in the stunning surrounds of Daylesford before breakfast and our final circle together. We will share what we have learned and let go of and deepen into what we need to fully shine, moving forward in a new and richly feminine way. Finally you will enjoy a gift of an amazing Goddess Goodie Bag filled with beautiful sacred gifts worth over $200 before departing late morning.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many people will be at the retreat?
The retreat is limited to only 13 women (including Julie, Sora and Sammie) so you will receive lots of supportive and intimate attention. This means there are only 10 spots available for enrolment.
How do I secure my place?
To attend the Divinely Feminine Retreat requires you to submit the application form above when available which will be early 2017. Applications will be reviewed and responded to in the order they are received until all places are filled – so don’t delay if the retreat is calling you! As this is an intimate experience, we want to ensure we get the right mix of women to craft an amazing get together (and so we may arrange to speak with you by phone) and in some instances applications may not be accepted. If accepted you will be sent a link to a payment form to secure your place with a $600 deposit (with four monthly payments of $520 to follow) or to pay in full $2600. Once your deposit or full payment has been received your attendance at the retreat is secure.
What if I can’t come? Can I get a refund?
Your deposit to attend the retreat is non-refundable (or $600 if paid in full) and so please ensure that you have read all relevant details if applying to attend. A wait list will be taken for those who miss out on a place and we will do everything we can to support you in selling your place to someone else if that is required. Refunds of monies paid for the retreat (beyond your deposit) are only possible up until April 14th 2017 if we are able to sell your spot in the retreat. If we are unable to do so no refunds will be given due to the spot being unable to be filled.
Where is Daylesford and is transport provided?
Daylesford is in the Western District of Victoria, approximately a 90 minute drive from the CBD of Melbourne. It is a beautiful township filled with natural beauty, art galleries, vintage shops and amazing organic food, produce, juice and coffee.
Transport to and from the Manor House in Daylesford is not provided. Transport will be on site to get you to the spa and restaurant and also into town (outside workshop times) if you choose to go. If you’ve left anything at home or need something from the shops we will gladly make one trip a day to get you anything you need.
Will you cater for dietary requirements and what will the food be like?
Yes. You will be asked of any dietary requirements you have in your application and we will support you with those. The food on retreat will be lovingly home made, fresh, organic where possible and plentiful. We promise you will never go hungry!
What should I wear and bring?
Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in for a country retreat including lounge clothing or jeans, noting that a professional photographer will be present for the Friday of our retreat. She will be available that afternoon to take some portrait photographs of you in the beautiful setting of the Manor House for your private or professional use so please dress accordingly to how you wish to appear in these photos.
Daylesford can get quite cold and we will be right at the end of Autumn heading into Winter so warm layers and a good coat are recommended. Dressier attire is required for our dinner at The Lakehouse which can be anything you desire except denim jeans.
You will need to bring pens, paper, your personal clothes and toiletry needs. A swimsuit is also required for your time at the mineral baths. You are welcome to bring a tablet or laptop if you wish (wifi will be available), however we request these are not used during our workshop and circle times. We are going old fashioned with notebooks and pen!
What is the accommodation like?
Beautiful! You will be in a King Twin Room in a gorgeous country home that has been purpose built for groups with a double fireplace, country kitchen and comfortable seating. There are plentiful outdoor areas to enjoy as well, including a long outdoor table where we hope to workshop and eat – as much as Mother Nature will allow us to!
Do We Get 1:1 Time with Julie or Sora?
No. This is a shared group experience with no 1:1 time scheduled. We are certain however that there will be more than ample opportunity to have intimate chats with both of them in small groups.
Are men allowed to attend?
No. This is a retreat for women participants only. Please note however that there will be one man present in the background of the retreat (Julie’s husband Glenn) who will be responsible for all catering and transport. Glenn is a trained chef and so expect some amazing food to come your way! He will NOT be present at any time in or around circles or activities and will be as unobtrusive in the background of the entire experience as possible. The fact that this is a lovely gender reversal of what usually transpires in many households and partnerships is not lost on us!
A Message from Julie and Sora…
We are so very excited as fellow female entrepreneurs and devoted Priestesses of the Divine to be bringing you this very special retreat. It is a joining together of our hearts, minds, souls and deep longing to be of spiritual service to women.
This retreat will be unlike anything you have ever experienced; rich in ceremony, feminine power and uncovering the true Goddess within you. A retreat that is coming from our hearts to yours.
We hope you will join us in the beautiful township of Daylesford for this amazing gathering.
