“A fantastic retreat, I loved every second!”

—Rhonda retreat attendee

There is gold hidden in every person. Somehow in childhood golden parts of ourselves laid undiscovered. So instead of seeing the gold within ourself we learned to project our gold onto others. Is it time to discover the gold hidden in your shadow? This retreat is a spiritual journey to uncover the parts of you hiding in the shadows.

You will:

  • Identify your limiting beliefs
  • Understand how you are created in God’s image
  • Learn how to get your gold out of the shadow
  • Practical tips to use journaling and creativity to discover insight
  • Identify your strengths, qualities and shame dialogues
  • Co-author a new story with compassion, to embrace your gold!

“Infinite riches are all around you if you will open your mental eyes and behold the treasure house within you. There is a gold mine from which you can extract everything you need to live life gloriously, joyously, and abundantly.”

— Joseph Murphy.

Do you book our hotel for us? Due to the current covid pandemic and travel implications, you will need to book your own hotel.

If I live in Perth, do I need to stay at the hotel? You don’t need to stay at the Adnate for the retreat, you can stay at home, a friends or another hotel. However the social elements of the retreat will be hosted at the hotel.

Is this a Christian event? Both Anne and Amanda are passionate about creating safe spaces for all retreat attendee’s. Faith is a personal journey and decision, they will share from their own story and faith journey’s including the impact of faith on their recovery and growth. You are welcome in this space, no matter the journey you are on personally.
