Heart Harmony Course

The Story of the Heart Harmony Retreats

My journey began when we were in the middle of a very hard and challenging year. The year we faced the pandemic 2020. As an empathic and compassionate person I noticed a global grief and suffering happening. People needed to feel connected again. Connected to nature and to others. This is where we can feel our sense of belonging.

I was introduced to an indigenous lady in North Queensland who shared with me her story of healing and what she wanted to share with others. She told me about her Grandmother Ruby who was no longer with us on this earth but would visit her and share insights and tips on how to help others in her dreams. She also shared massage techniques with her and how to use them.

After our conversation that gave me goosebumps that day I had Ruby also visit me that night and she shared massage moves that she wanted me to do. I actually woke myself up doing the moves that night. I instantly grabbed my notebook and wrote them down. I continued to connect with the healing indigenous women in North Queensland and finally come up with an finalised treatment that I call the Heart Harmony.

The Treatment focuses on underbody work with the stones and flowing rhythmic moves. The stones we use are Heated crystals to enhance the healing experience.

Now I am ready to share this experience with you in the beautiful Bunya Mountains where there is beautiful serenity and nature to hold the space for everyone to relax and heal while learning a beautiful treatment to offer their clients. I have a strong belief that learning happens on a deeper level when we are in a space of being nurtured and supported.

I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you.

Love and light

Activities

Bush Walks in the Afternoon

You can enjoy the afternoon going on a bush walk of discovery. I have discovered 2 different walks to go on and immerse yourself in healing nature.

Star Gazing on one Night

Stargazing is amazing on Bunya Mountains. They feel like you could almost touch them. Enjoy the night journey of discovery of the stars with Donna ( I am so excited about this as it is a new moon and the stars will be out in full) You get to take a photo with Donna camera and she sends it to you as a keepsake.

Morning Meditation

This is an optional practise. I personally like to do Qi Gong but I will have some mediations available for you too.

QiGong stretch sessions 

Great way to get the body warmed up ready for the day of learning

Healing Through Connection

We all need to be reminded why we do what we do and lets raise our vibration and help heal through our touch, thoughts and actions.
