Relax, Recharge and Supercharge Your Ability to Communicate

Spend a deeply nourishing weekend to replenish yourself in every way… where you will learn some unique and practical skills for effective communication with Jane Kinnear from Soul Clarity.

This weekend is for you if you have ever become reactive to other people’s dramas, worried about saying something you might regret later, or have silently denied your needs for fear of ‘rocking the boat’.

You will be learning proven visualisation techniques which harness the power of neuroplasticity to develop self-awareness in order to:

*   Appreciate the positives and limitations of your own style of relating
*   Reflect on your feelings and explore how best to communicate them
*   Take charge of automatic knee jerk responses
*   Listen to and appreciate where someone else is coming from
*   Define and express your needs clearly
*   Relate to others from the heart in an open, honestly and authentically

You will be treated to a rare opportunity to learn from guest speaker Suzie St George, co-author of The Siramarti Personal Growth Process and former psychotherapist, who will lead you through some simple, take-home experiences that can effectively empower you when communicating with others in her workshop “The Secrets of Easy Interpersonal Communication: How to get heard – safely, effectively and lovingly.”

From the moment we walked into the summer house we were absolutely blown away by its beauty. Where ever you looked the house was stunningly designed, decorated and felt so relaxing. The view of the ocean is magnificent. The beds so comfy and snuggly and hard to get out of. The house is filled with everything you might need for a nice trip away- right down the the beautiful body wash and shampoos. We spent 3 nights here for a girls weekend and highly recommend it. We also added the platter, massages and wine tour- which were all fantastic. We are leaving feeling very relaxed, spoilt and a little sad to be going back to reality. Thanks summer more
