Sunday 28 May – Friday 2 June 2017
Have you lost your practice mojo after years of service to your patients or feel like you’ve never really hit your stride?
As health clinicians we begin our professional lives full of passion and dream about how we can change the world through our work. We’ve seen countless times over the years how that inspiration can fade or change. We know so many practitioners who feel like they’ve lost their way, or perhaps never really found their true path in the first place.
Does this feel like you? We know there’s another way.
Gill Stannard and Charmaine Dennis are highly regarded naturopaths and business owners with more than 45 years in the industry between them. We know first-hand the ups and downs of running a thriving clinic, motivating a team and growing our businesses while maintaining enthusiasm and passion for our work. While our professional paths have differed, in recent years we’ve come together after we both experienced major health events. These challenges reinforced the need for us to do what we love with our lives.
Already know the retreat is for you and you just want to go straight to the nitty gritty? Jump to the costs, inclusions and how to apply.
Why a retreat?
As healers we’re experts at taking care of others but self-care usually comes at the bottom of the to do list, long after the admin is done, bills paid and ongoing learning is completed. This is not sustainable in the long run, especially for growing and maintaining a thriving practice that you love.
Do you ever take the opportunity to get away from home, family and work to look after yourself? Or dedicate the time and space needed to nurture both yourself and your business?
Gill and Charmaine have found an incredibly unique healing paradise to run this retreat, where you will be looked after from the minute you arrive until you return home – feeling relaxed, revived and reinvigorated in your work.
Breathe new energy into your life and practice
A healthy business requires a combination of great self-care and reflection, well-honed clinical skills and business know-how to reach its full potential. This is sometimes referred to as the three legged stool.
As practitioners we tend to focus more on one or two legs, often to the detriment of the others and we’re left feeling out of balance. When we feel jaded in our work, attending seminars can seem exhausting or irrelevant. It can be challenging to find the emotional or physical space required in order to learn or implement new techniques, or evaluate the latest business trend. It is so easy to feel left behind.
This practitioner only retreat is the perfect environment to nurture your whole self. Once nourished, you’ll be inspired by group interactions and mentored through Gill and Charmaine’s well-honed processes to revive your clinical and business mojo.
Nurture, connect and grow
As practitioners we often feel isolated, both within our own profession and the health industry as a whole. In the relaxed retreat environment, we create the opportunity to connect, share our experiences with each other and potentially even build future collaborations.
It doesn’t matter if your practice is large or small, just that you’re ready for rejuvenation.
We’re offering a five-day immersive experience that explores different aspects of practitioner life that includes:
- Coming together with a small group of like-minded multidisciplinary practitioners
- Movement and meditation for those who like to start the day mindfully.
- Workshops each morning that delve deep, exploring self-care, ways to audit and update your clinical practice, as well as profitable ways to boost your business that align with your core values.
- Free time each afternoon for relaxing by the pool, having a massage in the day spa, a sleep, a wander through the garden or whatever you need.
- Regrouping and reflecting before enjoying a nourishing, organic dinner.
- Five nights accommodation in a eco-friendly, tranquil haven.
- All meals, featuring amazing food straight from the organic garden.
