Silent Glamping Retreat - February 15th - 17th, 2019
Luxury Glamping Tents
Beautifully appointed and incredibly spacious glamping tents will be your home away from home. Each tent has a queen size bed and a single bed, its own indoor table and chairs along with outdoor chairs and umbrella for shade.
Immersed In Nature
Drift off to sleep to the sounds of nature and wake with the sun in the morning. Allow your feet to touch the ground and feel invigorated by the outdoors. This is just one way we will be connecting with the elements.
“When I am silent, I fall into that place where everything is music” - Rumi
Set in the incredible surrounds of The Woods Farm in Jervis Bay, this journey inwards will provide a gentle circuit breaker from your everyday life and a chance to retreat to yourself. Immerse yourself in the elements, surrounded by incredibly peaceful bushland, waking with the sun, and glamping under the stars, we will inquire into the sense of connectedness to self and all the elements that surround us.
Held at the quirky, unique, effortlessly beautiful and luxurious surrounds of The Woods Farm in Jervis Bay, you will have time to explore the beautiful 40 acres of bushland that surrounds us.
Perhaps visit the little farmyard and join in on feeding time or relax by the pool. There are complimentary bikes to explore on, an incredibly beautiful herb garden to wander amongst, a relaxing pergola by the poolside or perhaps you simply need a good book and a nap!
Jervis Bay’s famous white-sand beaches and clear turquoise waters are amongst the safest and most beautiful in the world. Each day we will immerse ourselves in these turquoise waters. Jervis Bay is only an incredibly scenic 3 hour drive from Sydney.
“Close the door of words that the window of your heart may open. To see what cannot be seen turn your eyes inward and listen, in silence.” ~ Rumi

Daily outdoor sunset Yin Yoga practices
For The Body
You will practice twice daily yoga, exploring the duality of yin and yang practices in relationship to balancing in a world of flux and preparing our bodies to sit in meditation. Daily immersion in water, and regular time spent in contact with the earth ( grounding ) will rebalance your body’s elemental nature.
For The Heart & Mind
Held in the container of Mauna (silence), together we will explore silence as a voice of its own, a quality of peace of mind and inner quietude in which we can connect to our inner nature. Social silence will be observed after Welcome and Orientation on Friday and will be broken on Sunday afternoon following the Closing Meditation. We also observe a Digital Detox where our devices are left off allowing a deep immersion into silence. (an emergency contact for love ones will be provided)
Joining us on this retreat is the incredible Si of Your Conscious Kitchen, who will be cooking using traditional techniques - over an open flame, underground, and in harmony with the elements. Intentional nourishment at each meal with a variety of rustic Wholefoods spreads using the South Coasts luscious, seasonal & locally sourced produce.
Si will combine his modern culinary skills with his passion for traditional Wholefoods medicine to prepare each offering using only nature’s elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water & Wood to create something truly special. Nourishment with deep intention.
