Find Yourself at the February 2020
February METreat at Continental House, Hepburn Springs, VIC
28 February - 1 March 2020
At this relaxed and friendly weekend retreat we will organise everything for you, nurture you, feed you, tidy up after you and provide you with wellbeing activities and experiences that will help you to relax, restore and re-charge. We'll also equip you with education, tools and strategies that you can use when you return home after the weekend. We will also provide you with lots of opportunities to connect, have fun and laugh with the other ladies on the retreat.
After a weekend with us, you will return home a happier and less stressed version of yourself so that you can be a better mother, partner, friend, work colleague and all-round amazing human being.

Vikki Friedman is the Founder of METreat and a busy mother of three boys aged 9, 11 and 14.
She started the business following a long and difficult history with anxiety and depression,
which resulted in her being hospitalised for five weeks when her three boys were very young.
Once Vikki recovered, she made a promise to herself to attend a retreat every year as part of regular self-care and prevention of relapse. Vikki had learned the importance of 'ME'time and self-care and realised that when she is happy her family and relationships benefit too.
Vikki had an amazing time at various retreats over the next five years and in addition to the wellness activities she participated in, found her favourite aspect of each retreat was the opportunity to connect with other women, form new friendships, share new experiences and, most importantly, have fun and laugh!!
In 2017 she made the decision to leave her job in online-fundraising to start METreat Women's Retreats. She wanted to bring her love of retreats and her understanding of the huge benefits they provide to all women, and in particular, mums who often struggle to find the time to look after themselves.
Vikki is responsible for planning, organising and marketing METreat Retreats. Vikki loves connecting with, supporting and helping women to thrive in all areas of their lives.
