Is it time to reset? 

Do you find you are kinder to others than yourself?

If it’s your time to find the balance between self-compassion and compassion for others, and you want to discover creative tools for actionable change this retreat is for you.

Amanda and Anne, the writer and the therapist, have run retreats over the last five years that help people to change their stories. The combination of inspiration, practical application and creativity has been reviewed by attendees as “a life-changing experience.

A beautiful, profound collaboration. The writer and the therapist combined into a symphony of love, grace, balance, faith and joy! “— Elaine Fraser: retreat attendee.

When we’re mindful, we reduce stress, enhance performance, gain insight and awareness through observing our own responses, and increase our attention to others’ well-being.

“A fantastic retreat, I loved every second!”— Rhonda retreat attendee

During this 4 day retreat, Anne and Amanda will provide comprehensive teaching on compassion that is rarely offered in intensive settings. Not only will you gain understanding of a compassion integration model that is taught to therapists globally, you will also be immersed in a practical experience of compassion. This model delivered as a retreat is an excellent way to connect with the compassion deep inside you longing to emerge.

People tell us they walk away by the end of our Compassionate retreats with a newfound sense of being – a compassionate being. This retreat will fundamentally change your relationship with yourself and everyone you are connected to.

The Compassionate Bali Retreat will:

    • Learn how to deepen your connection with yourself and other people.
    • Understand compassion as more than just kindness; discover compassion as motivation.
    • Create a different response to your inner critic.
    • Learn how to live a BIG life, with boundaries, integrity and generosity
