The Origin Of Source Healing
In 2015 Cindy received a channeled message from Archangel Raphael that a healing method had been downloaded to her subconscious and would become known to her in time.
After conducting healing sessions for hundreds of clients, Cindy’s healing sessions began evolving. Cindy was no longer using the healing modalities that she had learned, but rather, was purely connecting with and using Source Energy to heal her clients.
In 2020, Cindy answered her calling to teach the energy healing framework she was using to the next generation of healers and thus, the Source Healing Technique was birthed.
Whether you are on your own healing journey or interested in helping others, Source Healing is a course designed to connect you to your innate ability to access and use Source/Universal Energy for healing yourself and others.
Source Healing is an accredited healing modality for which you able to obtain professional insurance as a healer.
Throughout the Foundation Level you will:
Awaken your innate healing ability
Learn how to connect with the Divine Source of all energy
Learn the Three Pillars of Source Healing
Learn how to receive the energetic frequency for what it is you are intending to release or heal (for yourself and others)
Practice Self-healing
Receive Energy Activations
Experience Source Meditations
Give and receive healing
Understand the power of intention and co-creation in influencing healing outcomes
There is also Source Healing – Advanced Level which you can do with Cindy at a later date if you’d like to practice professionally as a healer. This is accredited practitioner training which means Source Healing is a recognised and approved healing modality by the International Institute of Complementary Therapists (IICT).

The Great Reset Retreat – with Aisling Quigley

In these busy, always-on lives we lead, we so often crave a pause. 

A space to stop the doing, to take rest from the daily grind, to move a little slower, to nourish, refresh and rejuvenate.

Retreat weekends are the perfect space to do just that.

Through the gift of time and space, they facilitate that pause, allowing you to take deep rest, and ultimately return home to yourself. Acting as that well-needed reset, leaving you re-energised with a renewed sense of purpose and energy as you start off the new year.

This Autumn we’ll be traveling to the unique and luxurious Summer House, located on the Surf-Coast of Australia, gateway to the Great Ocean Road, and only an hour away from Melbourne. The Summer House features quaint, nostalgic, country charm, and additionally, it hosts a beautiful yoga studio on-site, a solar heat Mineral Pool, and is just minutes away from the ocean, making for the most perfect setting for our time together.

Over the course of three days, and through an intimate setting, we’ll explore meditation and mindfulness practices, yoga and coastal walks, be served nourishing meals, and enjoy plenty of rest. A weekend immersed in those sea air surroundings, to move a little slower, and to be nurtured and well looked after, acting as the welcome home to yourself you’ve been long craving, particularly after the year that was 2020.


– Three days & two nights accommodation at the beautiful Summer House.
– Incredibly delicious and nourishing plant-based meals, snacks, and afternoon teas.
– Daily meditation and mindfulness practices.
– Embodied, nourishing, mindful movement through Yin & Slow Slow Yoga.
– Nature walks and maybe diving into a great book, taking a dip in our private pool, or joining us on a trip to the coast for a Mindful Walk.
– Optional massage.

Time to relax and just be…


This Retreat is Designed for… Anyone craving a weekend just for them.

All practitioner levels and walks of life are welcome. As all activities are optional, you have the choice to do everything or take it easy and relax by the pool.

Your weekend will include Slow Flow & Yin Yoga, coastal walks, nutrient-dense meals, and daily mindfulness practices.

The 2021 Zea Immersion Retreat

The 2021 Zea Immersion Retreat – With the Zea Relief Team

A health and wellness experience for busy women
When was the last time you were able to look after the most important person in your life… you?
Imagine three lush days of soul-led rest and rejuvenation, specifically created with your wellness in mind.
Does this sound good to you?
Then we’d like to introduce you to the 2021 Zea Immersion…
The Zea Immersion is a full-bodied and whole-hearted experience for busy women, bringing our amazing team of wellness facilitators directly to you.
All set in the beautiful beachside town of Torquay, you will enjoy three days and two nights of guided sessions and activities designed to give you the restoration your body desires.
We will reconnect.
We will rejuvenate.
We will restore.
There’s no rushing from one place to the next, getting our yoga and meditation fix then being stuck in traffic.
Forget about the day to day To-Do list taking over your day and interrupting the time you so desperately need for yourself.
And don’t worry about spending precious energy on the hundreds of micro-decisions you have
to make everyday, piled on top of the mental load of work and home life.
No, this is much different
Over our time together, we take care of everything for you. This is YOUR time to focus on you, being pampered and taken care of.
This retreat will see you joyfully experiencing the best of
what Zea has to offer!
Here is what we will be doing together at the Zea Immersion:
Friday is all about arriving in Torquay and getting settled in.
Check into the beautiful Summer House, meet your fellow retreat participants and relax over afternoon tea.
After getting to know one another, enjoy a soothing massage or the house facilities before being cooked a delicious dinner by our very own private cook.
We will end the evening with a blissful night time meditation experience under the stars.
Start your day with a centering and grounding yoga session, before enjoying a nourishing breakfast.
Then get creative in our essential oils session and create your very own personal blend.
After unlocking our creativity, we will deep dive into an intimate session designed to help you feel deeply connected in your everyday life.
Lunch will fill your belly, before we have a fun session in the kitchen using our culinary skills.
Afterwards, take your time to explore or sit back and relax. Break off into pairs to sightsee in town or lay on the grass in the sunshine with a good book.
Napping is also highly encouraged!
Fresh from your rest, a beautiful dinner will lead into a cozy ‘fireside’ chat – ending the night with full bellies and full hearts.
Our final day together, Sunday is all about leaving you feeling restored and ready to come back
Starting with a blissful meditation in the morning, we will enjoy a sumptuous breakfast before
heading off on a guided walk along the stunning surf coast and reconnecting with nature.
A hearty lunch will be waiting for you once we arrive back at the accommodation to have some
more time together before we say our goodbyes and head home feeling blissed out.
