A couple of weekends ago I ran my first one day meditation retreat in Melbourne and it was a fantastic day.
I sent out an invitation to women I knew and the class filled in no time – it was one of those days that had a great vibe right from the word go. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday and we had a wonderful venue, great food and the pleasure of each other’s company. I think I enjoyed the day more than anyone!
Liz from Lizzy C Photography joined us and took these gorgeous photos in between meditations and everyone wrote a beautiful testimonial and sent it through the following week. How lucky I am to be surrounded by such wonderful women.
I can’t wait for the next one (which is already booked out). We’ll be running lots more of the same next year before our longer retreats to Bali and Byron Bay.
‘I wanted to thank you for the meditation retreat. It was a wonderful time. I feel that you really introduced me to the world of meditation in a way that took any mystery away and before I even started, I felt confident that it was something I could do. All I really wanted was a day to stop and learn a new skill that could allow me to ‘stop’ in my own home. I am realising more how important it is to live in the moment with mindfulness. You have a beautiful, calm style, Kate. You are real and show vulnerability, which in turn creates an intimate environment. I felt very safe in the space you created, which is so important, because meditation and discussing deep-seated issues can feel so raw to the participants, yet I felt that it was ok.
Thanks so much, Kate. You led a beautiful day and have started me on a path that I can see is going to be beneficial for myself and our family. At the risk of sounding corny, I really feel that you are right in the centre of what you were created to do; how fabulous is that?’ Shelley
