Book the September 2019 Weekend METreat


September METreat at Casa Allegra, Trentham, VIC : 20 - 22  September 2019


  • Your children are growing up fast and life is a hectic whirlwind of school notices, schlepping the kids to their activities, trying to run your household and keep everybody happy.


  • You are perpetually tired, chasing your tail and trying to keep on top of everything and keep everyone happy.


  • You don’t think that you are being a great wife, mother, friend and work colleague most of the time.  You often snap at the kids, ignore your husband, turn up late for work and fantasise about running away to a desert island on your own!


  • You wish you were a better friend and had more time to hang out with your girlfriends, but they are all running around like headless chickens too!


  • You aren’t entirely sure what your purpose is in life any more and get the feeling that time is slipping away as the year hurtles from January through to Xmas.


  • You’d like to get fit, eat healthy, feel less anxious and stressed all the time and sleep better at night, but you feel like you don’t have the time or the energy to do anything about it.


  • In honesty, most of what you do is about pleasing everyone else and not actually doing what you want to do to feed your soul, fill up your cup and make you truly happy in life.


  • You feel like you want to be free again. You feel like you want to be yourself again. You feel like you want to be silly again. You feel like you want to be a little girl again without the responsibilities of adult life and parenting.




On our September METreat Retreat we will re-introduce you to the 6 KEYS TO HAPPINESS, so that you can give back to yourself, re-fill your cup, re-discover your passion in life and feel like YOU again.









At the retreat we will organise everything for you, nurture you, feed you, tidy up after you and provide you with activities and experiences that will show you how to embody the 6 KEYS OF HAPPINESS – both on the retreat and when you return home after the weekend.

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.



The retreat program will take place at the delightful Casa Allegra & Garden Studio, a beautiful property set in Trentham VIC, which is less than a 90 minute drive from Melbourne. The property, as its name suggests, is a place of happiness and joy, and with 5,000sqm of beautiful landscaped gardens, it provides a uniquely peaceful and private space for us to gather for our retreat.

This beautiful five bedroom home, with two living areas has a large garden studio which we will utilise for our yoga, meditation and personal development sessions. With an elevated view over the large garden and the lake beyond, the house's deck is perfect for al fresco dining. At night you can enjoy the starry skies sitting around the garden's fire pit.  Alternatively you can curl up with a book in front of the fire in the cosy living room, or if you are feeling more energetic have a game of billiards or table tennis in the garden studio.

All 5 twin bedrooms have beautiful linen and upholstered bed heads. Two bedrooms have ensuites, with the remaining bedrooms sharing a bathroom and additional separate toilet.
