Yin Yang Spring Retreat @ Nkwazi Tree Lodge
Aug 30 @ 4:00 pm – Sep 1 @ 1:30 pm
Yin Yang Spring Retreat @ Nkwazi Tree Lodge

Harmonising the Masculine and Feminine

Regardless of gender, we all contain both masculine and feminine energy. As in nature, we function optimally when these energies are in harmony and a state of flow.

Through teaching, facilitated discussions, awareness, mindfulness and breathing exercises, and practical examples we will explore the integration of your masculine and feminine energies in an empowered, harmonious lifestyle, in flow with your natural rhythms and purpose.

Venue: Nkwazi Tree Lodge, Zinkwazi Beach, KZN North Coast (http://www.nkwazitreelodge.co.za/)
Date: 30 Aug – 1 Sep (2 nights)
Cost: R2,950 , discounted if shared.
The venue is meters from the beach, so will include beach sessions.

Retreat focus and intent:
• Harmonizing your masculinity and femininity to be empowering, not destructive
• Overview of archetypes as a way of understanding yourself (and others)
• Being in flow with the natural elements
• You and relationships: empowering, domineering, victimised?
• Outdated “rules” – how condition and tradition lead to collision
• The vital role of subtle energies and how they flow
• Understand and welcome our natural cycles (men and women)
• Self-love and compassion, and dipping into our shadow-side
• Invoke /deepen your spiritually
• Reflect upon your journey of strength, vulnerability and lessons
• Develop and practice mindfulness at a deep level
• Empower, support and inspire others, and make new friends
• Become true to who you are and live a purposeful life
• Rest, refresh and revitalise

Although the retreat is focused on the wholeness of the individual, and favoured by guests attending solo, we also welcome couples wanting to understand, harmonise and perhaps challenge the expression of these aspects in their relationship.

Facilitated by Celeste Du Toit, Transformational NLP Coach, Holistic Therapist, Speaker and seasoned retreat leader.

“Having been in a corporate and management environment for years, my strong, action-orientated, goal-driven and focused masculine nature was very evident and served me well. Up to a point.
Embarking on a personal soul-searching journey, focused on finding meaning and purpose, instilling peace and the desire to help and heal others tapped into my feminine energies. I had to develop these, without losing the drive, focus and passion that is part of me. I had to balance yin and yang. Learning how to harmonise these energies helped me – in my business, my relationships, and my life in general – to become empowered yet flowing, strong yet gentle, confident yet supportive, inspiring yet helpful, passionate yet calming.”

Even if financially we’re doing well, we can struggle with self-doubt or low self-esteem, feel trapped in our careers, unfulfilled or not appreciated in our relationships, or feel we’ve lost a sense of purpose, meaning or joy. Especially if we are going through major life changes.
For some it even results in physical or emotional stress or illness.
I specialize in helping you unleash your inner power to find new meaning in their careers, relationships, and in life, and enjoy total wellness and vitality. I believe in holistic wholeness and alignment of Body, Mind and Spirit, and look forward to working and connecting with you.”

-Sometimes lack focus, clarity, structure; feel disorganised, indecisive, or don’t know how to progress?
– Know what to do but you just can’t trust yourself to do it?

Sep 16 @ 12:00 pm – Sep 20 @ 3:00 pm
INNER Wellness Retreat with Celeste Du Toit @ Temenos Retreat

Holistic Wellness starts from Within….
A 4 day healing, growth and transformation retreat

Perhaps you are…
Feeling unfulfilled, stuck, in a rut or trapped,
Constantly making the same mistakes,
Experiencing major life changes or trauma,
Convinced you’re destined for more in life,
Lonely and unhappy inside,
Questioning your spirituality and want to deepen it,
Longing for joy and passion,
…then this retreat is for you!

Take some time for yourself, and allow me to guide you on a journey inwards. Leave the outside world behind for a few days, in the beautiful, tranquil gardens of Temenos.

What you will learn and walk away with:
• “What drives me?” – How to ignite passion
• Freedom, releasing and letting go
• How to identify your inner obstacles and blocks
• Balanced energies – mind, body and spirit
• Heightened self-esteem, self-worth and self-love
• How your thoughts create your reality
• The power of emotions and getting in touch with it
• Inner healing techniques
• Meditation, breath work and spiritual practices
• How to live a more spiritual and charged life
• Bonding and friendships that may last a lifetime

Perhaps you’ve never focused on YOU. To get that *SPARKLE* back, some time-out and solitude may be required. And while you relax and recharge, I guide you to take your learnings and healing to a deep, sustainable level.Whether you wish to overcome issues, seek answers, get in touch with your inner being, develop your spirituality, grieve, or just rest, I encourage you to look deep within. I provide you with tools to support you in your discoveries and growth, and equip you to continue your personal evolution and well-being. The retreat also provides a space for bonding, emotional support and forming of friendships, to continue long after you leave.

History of the Inner Wellness Retreat
This is the 10th consecutive time that the Inner Wellness retreat is being presented at Temenos, testimony to its popularity. Past participants who are referring guests, will be glad to know the success recipe of the structure, flow and content has been retained, as that has proven invaluable. The duration and pace of the retreat also allows for full relaxation, immersion and value gained.
However, we continuously allow for improvements, additions and growth, as well as consideration of participant feedback, therefore some activities may have changed. This allows for an even deeper level of participation, more connection with Self and a profound sense of joy, peace and love.
Repeat participation is also welcomed, as the building blocks of inner wellness, growth, healing and enlightenment are applicable at all levels and areas of your life journey.
Please note we can only accommodate a limited number of participants, due to the intensive nature of the retreat.

KZN Journaling Workshop @ The Office 97
Oct 19 @ 8:30 am – 12:30 pm
KZN Journaling Workshop @ The Office 97

Due to popular demand, this workshop is coming up again, this time on a Saturday!
Inspiring, practical and FUN helping you on your journey of self discovery.

Venue: The Office, 97 Innes Rd, Morningside, KZN
Price: R350, includes a delicious vegetarian lunch.
Starting time: 08h30. Duration: 4 hours.

You may have heard about the benefits of journaling. That it expands the mind, your awareness, focus and perspective.
Perhaps you have been thinking of doing it, but don’t know where to start.
Maybe you do it occasionally, but tend to lose focus, and then procrastinate.
Or you get stuck. No new ideas, no new insights, inspiration, nothing.

Journaling can be a fabulous tool. But, as with everything, a tool only helps if it is used. And of course there are ways to make it easier, more beneficial and applicable to your personal situation.
Don’t let a limiting belief, ignorance or self-doubt get in your way!

Whether you are a seasoned writer, about to get started, or wondering if you should start, this workshop will give you the tools to implement a journaling practice, the opportunity to refresh your ideas, perspective and inspiration to continue, share with and learn from others. And mostly, connect with others on the same path!

What we will cover:
– Journaling – how to get started, and how to maintain it
– What do I write about?
– How “deep” do I go?
– “I am not creative”. How to address this limitation.
– Expanding the mind and awareness
– HOW, HOW, HOW? Practical tips, lessons and opportunity to practice
– Stories, pictures, dreams – get the vision and magic back
– Where does it lead to?
– The BIGGIE: Self-worth, self love and self esteem through journaling.

Price: R350
