now I want to give you some insight into
what a retreat here at
is all about.
PEOPLE SPENT TIME HERE ON A PERSONAL
Some came to rest and take a break from
their current life story. A personal
challenge in areas such as career, divorce,
health issues, abuse, fertility or indeed
finances have brought others. Those who came
wishing to begin or to grow their spiritual
awareness loved the simple approach that is
taken to what might have been perceived as
difficult or challenging. Therapists
regularly find their way here to rediscover
their inner beauty or simply recharge their
enthusiasm. Some come because they are as
they simply say ‘lost’. It is lovely to be
invited to play a part in your ‘rediscovery
of yourself’. Many who have trained in
Shamanism, Reki, IET, EFT and other
beautiful disciplines come because they want
to grow beyond their course content. When
you come here for whatever reason our
response will always be the same. A plan
with strategies, respect, kindness, and
healings unique to you will be created, that
plan will work long after you have left
Coolbagh. All who are respectful of others
are welcome here.
A DAY AT

Coolbagh on retreat are always set at the
individual pace of each client. Our aim
