Image an entire weekend connecting, laughing, learning and relaxing with your teenage daughter. This beautiful Mother & Daughter retreat weekend has been created for just that. Take some time out, a weekend in the school holidays, to embed some memories and be held in a space where you and your daughter can enjoy freedom, conversation with other mothers and teen daughters, be nourished, learn new mind-body tools and cultivate an energy between you to nurture your relationship into the future.

Waking up at Amara with the sunrise, provides each day with a glorious moment of feeling lucky to be alive. Watch the mist roll over the hills and into the valley beneath the Main Retreat House as you take the path to the, "The Heart Centre", which overlooks the expansive northerly view to the coast. 

Slip into meditation and Qigong as the sun peaks over the hills and the new day begins with renewed aspirations. "There is a vibration here that resonates visibly with our guests. You can see stress and tension disappearing immediately, even as soon as you drive through the gates at Amara". 

The stunning Hampton's Style Retreat House offers accomodation for 10 guests in delicious twin share rooms, fitted with the softest linen and gorgeous shared bathrooms.

 

This June 26-28, take yourself and your teen daughter (13-16yrs) out of your daily lives and retreat to Amara. Nestled in its beautiful setting in the Hinterland on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Join your host, Michelle Greene for 2 nights immersing in Qigong, Meditation, nourishing food prep, creative art & gratitude journaling, nature walks, fire side chats, delicious treatments  and Whole-Self nurturing. This will be an intimate, personal retreat offering only 10 residential guest places, that's just 5 mother/daughter pairs.

      

Feel the connection to nature as you walk the 45 undulating acres. Slow down your mind in the rock balancing garden, another meditative space amongst lush forests. Swim in the expansive dam or let go in the steam sauna or float in the magnesium plunge pool to wash away any residual tension. Feel inspired and playful during journaling time, allowing you to capture the true essence of your thoughts and emotions. Then, finish the day with the setting sun over the valley with a fire circle, giving you time to reflect and chat about this journey called life.

Your taste buds and body will be nourished daily with our retreat Chef's fully-catered menu consisting of all-natural, organic, freshly prepared meals, snacks & juices. You will also pic up some great recipes and your teen can learn some nourishing, simple food tips and ideas.

What is Qigong?

Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of exercise and meditation that makes the mind, body and spirit tranquil, improves quality of life, and cultivates health, well-being, and longevity.

Qigong exercises help maintain health by creating a state of mental and physical calmness, which indicates that the Qi energy is balanced and harmonious. This allows the mind/body/spirit to function most efficiently, with the least amount of stress.

When you start practicing Qigong exercises, the primary goal is to concentrate on letting go, letting go, letting go. That’s because most imbalance comes from holding on to too much for too long, whether it be from trauma, stress, injury or other tension creating issues. Most of us are familiar with physical strength of muscles, and when we think about exercising, we think in terms of tensing muscles. Qi energy is different. Qi strength is revealed by a smooth, calm, concentrated effort that is free of stress and does not pit one part of the body against another.

It’s harder to remedy an illness than to prevent it, and Qigong has powerful preventive effects. However, when disharmony becomes apparent, Qigong exercises also can play a crucial role in restoring harmony.

Qigong can be practised by anyone and anywhere. During this retreat we will engage in Qigong practices morning and afternoon, learning simple practices that you can take back into daily life.
