Skillful Mind is presenting their popular 'Empowerment Retreat' in the beautifully spiritual venue of The Monastery this April.

Dubbed 'Skillful Mind's Life Changing Retreat', this unique 3 day experience combines an introduction to NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) with nourishing yoga and meditation sessions in a stunning location.

Located in Glen Osmond, The Monastery will set the scene for a one of a kind weekend retreat, where you can immerse yourself in teachings that will empower you for the rest of your life.

Under the guidance of Skillful MIND's father and founder Peter Radcliffe, you'll gain an understanding of what the mind really is, and how you can truly empower yourself each and everyday.

Peter is a qualified NLP trainer who as travelled the world to study the ancient art of meditation. His teachings are free from religion, practical and down to earth - which previous students have loved.

Combining the ancient wisdom of yogis who have perfected the art of a still mind and the power of modern psychology, the weekend aims to break through negative emotions or limiting beliefs that hold you back.

The retreat will include (but not limited to):

A values elicitation exercise to discover what motivates you at the deepest level

A goal setting workshop for you to re-align the direction you are moving in life

A break though session to dissolve negative emotions and unhelpful beliefs

Discussions on what separates successful people from the rest of us

Alignment of all your values, goals and motivating principles to accelerate you to your destiny

The classes are held in an encouraging and nurturing environment, allowing you to focus on learning and growing, free from day to day distractions, in the company of like-minded people.

The standard retreat includes:

  • 2 nights accommodation (single room) - twin and non-residential options available

  • Weekend Yoga teachings

  • Delicious meals from Friday night supper until Sunday Lunch

  • Free Yoga classes and a Meditation sessions for all levels

  • Access to indulgences like Massage and 1:1 Life Coaching (additional charges apply)

    The 'Empowerment Retreat' retreat at The Monastery cost priced at $697 per person or $1297 twin share, including meals, accommodation, linen and all classes.

    You can also choose a non-residential retreat where you can sleep at home and attend daily for only $532 (includes morning/afternoon teas, lunch, Saturday dinner - breakfasts not included).

    Enjoy some time out and reconnect with yourself at this popular retreat.

    My experience at the Empowerment Retreat was life changing. I chose to go because I was in a state of unconsciousness, meaning my life was in turmoil and I was floating from one day to the next without conscious decisions. People walked all over me, I bent over backwards for everyone and gave nothing to myself.

    And neither did anyone else. I just couldn't figure out why, when I was so accommodating and caring and considerate of everyone. My bucket was empty and I was running on thin air, so when my friend suggested the retreat I jumped at the chance. What I learnt about myself has stayed with me, and a year later and I utilise these skills on a daily basis. Peter taught me how to meditate effectively and how to draw deep into myself to figure out what was actually causing my feelings and my fears. Then he taught me how to turn these fears around and make sustainable goals. I was also amazed to see so many people attending from the service industry. Nurses, teachers, counsellors and care givers who all felt drained and empty from giving so much. I saw a young couple in crisis, leave the retreat as a united pair.

    The retreat has changed my mindset and behaviour at home, work and in all my relationships. There is no doubt the skills and experience I received on this weekend has changed me in a positive way. I have balance in my life and regularly re-visit Peters meditations. Forever grateful to the Skillful Mind Team.
