Women’s winter retreat to nourish bodies and inspire souls

Are you a busy, soul-driven woman aching for some time out?

Three Raglan women passionate about holistic wellness are combining their skills to help reignite the light into the lives of busy mums, professionals and professional mums.

Bernadette Marama Gavin, Irma Schutte and Sarah Edwards say they know how challenging it can be to keep wellness and vibrancy central to their lives – and they’re experts at it.

Their three-day retreat at Solscape in June is a unique opportunity for women to learn how to reconnect with themselves and lead a healthy and inspired life.

“Our wellness is our greatest strength to ourselves and to others,” says Irma, and she promises that all participants of the Reignite Your Light retreat will be well nourished and inspired.

Irma, Bernadette and Sarah will each bring their own strengths to the retreat.

Irma, a wellness coach and homeopath, will be offering whole foods and homeopathy workshops, including how to support your hormonal being.

She is especially excited about holding the Raw Cacao Full Moon Ceremony.

Sarah, a counsellor and holistic life coach, says she has many years of experience in group facilitation, creating safe places where people can grow and flourish.

She is also passionate about offering open floor conscious dance movement sessions, and they will be included at the retreat.

“I see movement as a rich opportunity to enhance our wellbeing: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.”

Bernadette, co-owner of Solscape eco-retreat, is a yoga instructor, healing therapist and intuitive guide.

She says helping others find balance in their lives is her passion, and she will be offering plenty of gentle, restorative yoga at the retreat.

“I love to support others in such a way that connecting deeply to the present moment, to self and to the natural world becomes effortless.”

The retreat will also include meditation and mindful practices, spaces to unwind and do nothing, bush and beach walks, delicious plant-based meals by Raglan foodie Emma Galloway, and plenty of belly laughs and connections.

“Offering our teachings through a retreat is an inspiring context for all of us,” the organsiers say. “We love the power of bringing a group together with a common goal, and we love how transformation can take place in such a short time. We also feel it is essential to equip people to sustain this change in their everyday lives. This is a big part of what we offer.”

The Reignite Your Light winter women’s retreat is on at Solscape June 8-11. See for more information. Tickets cost $750 for early-bird sales until April 15, then $850. Every participant gets a pamper goodie bag valued at $150.
