Sensory Immersion Retreat


Noosa Hinterland, Australia

Friday 10th March - Tuesday 14th March 2023


One Cabin & Glamping Tent Opened Up



Allow your Mind, Body & Spirit to be fully immersed in a nurturing & mindful exploration of your senses at our exclusive 4-night Retreat in the stunning Noosa Hinterland.

If you're ready to ditch the chores, your kids, your work..., and in need of some quality time out of the 'every-day' to learn how to DESTRESS & navigate {with grace} the ever-changing world around you... the FUN way, then read on!


Many people have the idea that to achieve Mindfulness, you have to set aside hours of time and do things that are outside of your ordinary daily routines. 
In their minds, it makes the consistent practice of mindfulness time-consuming and impractical.
But nothing could be further from the truth.


Join me in the gorgeous Noosa Hinterland {one of my favourite places!}, as I open the door and gently guide & reconnect you back to your inner self. With self-love, compassion & kindness.

 But FIRST... an Aperol Spritz to welcome you in, & the warmest hospitality {and delicious food}… I guarantee you’ll never want to leave!

Before you read any further. 

This is NOT your AVERAGE Retreat.

  • Laughing will be ENCOURAGED.

  • The odd Glass of good Red Wine may appear with Dinner

  • No Mung bean casseroles.

  • Instead of celery juice, there may be Artisanal Organic Croissants (with fruit of course) served with breakfast.

  • And coffee - there will be COFFEE (local & Organic of course).

Lisa has designed what she calls ‘sensory immersion’ retreats for people who want to take the time to learn how to implement simple habits into their daily routines and become more mindful and happier as a result.


“This is the most accessible way to learn habitual mindfulness”, Lisa explained. “We initially tap into mindfulness through our physical senses, and this can be anything from sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee, to enjoying a beautifully cooked meal, a meaningful conversation, a walk in nature or listening to music. When it is consciously practised, mindfulness can bring such joy to even the most mundane situation”.

Ben's cooking is inspired by the glorious fresh produce to be found in the orchards and pristine waters as well as his travels throughout the USA, Europe, and Asia. 
We can therefore expect him to tap into the abundance of fresh seafood and local produce that we are blessed to have here on the Sunshine Coast. 

Amongst some of his notable workplaces:
  • Prossers Seafood Restaurant - Hobart

Indulge in an Aperol Spritz sundowner in the afternoon with new friends, luxuriating in the golden glow of the setting sun, surrendering to the simple pleasure of that first sip.
