Hey beautiful tribe!

Firstly I’d like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this sacred land, the Wadandi Noongar People. I recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

I’m starting this weekend off by sending out a huge wave of love and light to you all. Because it’s been a year and we all need it!

I don’t think I’ve ever needed retreat as much as I do now. My self care rituals have been essential to stay on top of my well being this year. And even then, I’ve had some challenging times of just not being ok. It’s ok to feel this way. And it’s ok to say it. It’s in the surrender, and allowing our feelings to be, that we can truly find some self compassion, love, and healing. Our vulnerability becomes our greatest strength as we navigate our path with self love in our hearts each and every day.

With this in mind, I’m so happy to announce the much needed Love & Light Wellness Retreat, created in partnership with Bare & Wilde Retreats.

This ultimate beachside retreat will be hosted at our favourite spot Smiths Beach Resort in their magnificent beach houses, designed with an understated sophistication to make sure you relax and enjoy. The resort’s backyard is the gorgeous turquoise ocean, nestled amongst a National Park. You will have lots of time to connect with Mother Nature.

This retreat is all about embracing self-love, unleashing our inner child, finding joy and creative freedom. It’s going to be FUN! Bare & Wilde will take care of everything from start to finish, so you can genuinely unwind, reset and connect.

Together we have curated a retreat itinerary for the WA wellness community and we hope to be able to share this with the rest of Australia and wider community when it’s safe to do so. Our hearts are with you all through these difficult times.

As part of the retreat itinerary, join me for some creative fireside conversations whilst enjoying a Q&A boho picnic on the beach, themed around the creation of my blog, rediscovering self-love and how to ignite your creative dreams. The intention here is to have a relaxed conversation, in a beautiful setting, connecting and sharing openly and safely with one another, within a sacred shared space. It will be an opportunity to ask me any questions you have, but more importantly a safe space for you to share and be heard. A space for us to share our mutual knowledge and wisdom, and inspire and elevate one another towards the fulfilment of our creative dreams.

As you guys probably know I am vegan, and healthy, delicious plant based food is something I’m so passionate about. I’m so happy this retreat will be providing plant based premium private dining experiences each day prepared by in-house chefs Jessica Lowe and Valerie Gamer. There will be daily yoga, meditation, sound healing with the incredibly gifted Julian Silburn, abstract art workshop with local artist Sarah Malone (so excited for this!) and coastal beach walks/runs as well as hiking the Cape to Cape Walk Trail. This is one of my favourite walks ever! It’s so healing and stunningly beautiful!


While we may not be able to explore beyond WA at the moment, I am super grateful to be part of this wellness retreat experience like no other. Love & Light Wellness Retreat is the premium wellness getaway you have been waiting for in 2020. We want you leaving this getaway feeling nourished from the inside out and full of life, joy and creative energy. 


You can view the full premium retreat inclusions and book your ticket HERE. There are limited spots left and EARLY BIRD $100 off is available until 2 August 2020 or until sold out.  

I can’t wait to connect with you, share magical sunsets and enjoy some self care time on this beautiful wellness retreat. 

Love and Gratitude, Helen xx
