Queer Nature Retreat

May 31 - June 2

Lanie and Belinda invite you to be part of our upcoming Queer Nature Retreat – a celebration of Queerness and an opportunity for deep self exploration should you choose it.  Expect connection to nature, self and others!

We placed this retreat in winter as it presents us with the perfect opportunity to slow down, rest and digest our lives.  As nature hibernates it is important, we also turn within so that we might welcome spring with renewed vigor and optimism.  We have chosen a location which is truly remote, wild and untouched in its natural beauty.

The invitation is to slow all the way down to a heartbeat.  To practice deep listening to one’s longings, desires and natural rhythms.  In our modern culture which prioritizes productivity over well-being, it is so important to practice listening to one’s inner voice in a retreat setting so that we can channel that listening into our everyday life where it matters most. The retreat is a disruptor to less than optimal patterns.  An opportunity to reset and re-calibrate one’s intentions.  To truly receive nourishment from nature, ourselves and from connections to others.

We have curated an experience that offers a supportive environment for deep reflection and connection. Through discussion, movement, yoga, guided meditation, heart centered practices, and more, you will have the opportunity to reconnect to your most authentic self surrounded by Queer community.

Sit down meals lovingly prepared and shared together and reported by our participants to be highlight. All food will be delicious and nutritious vegetarian cuisine.  Any special dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice. As well as main meals there will be snacks and hot beverages available throughout the day.

All activities are optional- the yoga component will be accessible to all bodies, shapes and abilities.
This retreat is trauma informed and consent driven providing both support and emphasis on self responsibility.
However life is for you right now, COME EXACTLY AS YOU ARE.

King Parrot Cottages are beautifully nestled onto the south side of the Pennyroyal Valley (near Lorne), capturing all the northern light and spectacular views across the valley. There is a crystal-clear creek running through the bottom of the property, offering beautiful bushwalking opportunities. The accommodation is in architecturally designed and self-contained with a modern kitchen along with 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms. The views from each cottage are spectacular and each cottage has a wood fire heater, along with reverse cycle heating and cooling.

You will have the opportunity to step into the warmth of a two person infrared sauna, where soothing heat penetrates deep into your body, promoting detoxification and rejuvenation. As you relax in this sanctuary, enjoy views of the bush, creating a serene and meditative atmosphere. You will also be able to immerse yourself in invigorating ice baths that invigorate your senses and stimulate circulation. The crisp, cool water contrasts with the warmth of the sauna, offering a unique and refreshing experience that leaves you revitalized and full of energy.
