“Self Nurture is a duty of care essential to well-being. The circle of giving is complete when you are in the receiving of that flow"
Meditation & Soul Nurture Spring Retreat
A Soulful weekend of nature bliss and spiritual illumination immersion
This is a Soul invitation to take time out to re-charge and tune into the newness and aliveness of Spring, bathing in the peace and tranquility of nature while learning the art of letting go. We have created a space of Soulful nurturing at Nathanael's Rest Retreat nestled in 7 acres of native bush, gardens, grapevines, Labyrinths and secluded nature-spaces of serenity and solitude. Self nurture is a duty of care essential to well-being, so let us help you complete that circle of your loving outward giving by putting you in the line of receiving. The semi-rural property is forty minutes from central Perth and walking distance from the Mundaring Village in the Perth Hills to explore should you wish to take time out of the retreat.
What will this Retreat Offer?
