About This Event

The Magnify Your Radiance New Year Retreat at Nettlecombe Farm is the space to weave dreams with the golden threads to bring your intentions for 2020 into radiant being.

And there’s no better time to do that than when we tip the balance from one year into the next. After spending precious time with family and friends over Christmas, there is nothing like gifting yourself some valuable days away to come to a place of softening.

The Magnify Your Radiance Retreat weaves love languages into your life and desires for the year ahead through Yoga, meditation, celestial communications, Qoya, dance, ceremony, soulful intention setting, nature, relaxation, massage, community and space to guide you to communicate with your divine life purpose and soul mission.

Join us from 29 December through to 1 January. This retreat is your time to Magnify Your Radiance. Brave loving hearts YOUR TIME IS NOW!

Kate Taylor and Carol Macartney have been guided and inspired to collaborate on this retreat, as they recognise their shared desire to assist others along their path in this incredible lifetime. They share an awareness of the powerful Aquarian Age that we are now in, where so much change is happening so quickly and the importance of raising our awareness to wake up to the joy and love that reside within.

This retreat invites participants with no former experience or those with a wealth of experience to share. Quite simply we arrive with a desire to break free of all limitations and an urge to live in joy, integrity and love.

This might be the best Christmas present you have ever given to yourself.

" In this earth, in this immaculate field, we shall not plant any seeds except for compassion, except for love. - RUMI

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
