Meg Ryan 'moments'?

Then I invite you to join me in the Victorian Spa Country this July.

Yes, it's going to be cold, but that just means fireside time with a pot of fragrant Glühwein  (I make a pretty wicked one) and some slow & delicious cooking.


Cooking for family and friends over the years has given me so many entertaining moments... as I see them slip into states of complete bliss. 

And whilst that seems hilarious, it's what being 'present' & Mindfulness is all about. 

Mindfulness in everyday life doesn't mean we have to give up the joy of a delicious meal shared with friends and a glass of wine. 

Think of your favourite food moment. I know you have one. 

Chances are that you were practicing the art of Mindfulness, whether you realised it or not. 


You were truly present for every mouthful, for the textures, tastes, and smells.

The Food

Abundant, Nurturing, and Diverse.


When we think about what we eat and how we eat, we sometimes focus solely on the nutritional value and taste of food. This retreat will encourage you to expand your perspective and approach food in a more holistic manner, taking into account how it affects you physically, mentally, and emotionally.


The aim is to create a relaxed & fun experience where you can focus on connecting with yourself, others, and nature.

Food connects us. It connects us to each other, to the land, to traditions and culture, and to ourselves. 

This retreat is designed to deepen or even completely transform your relationship with food, using mindfulness and meditation techniques to create a more fulfilling connection with yourself and your surroundings.

We'll create some magic in our kitchen but also visit a local winery and indulge in some local treats.

Food is LOVE


Attention all food enthusiasts!

If you're ready to explore the intricate relationship between food, emotions, body and energy, and are curious about the benefits of mindfulness and meditation, look no further. Indulge in a glass of wine, while rediscovering the true meaning of joy around the dinner table. 

This retreat offers you a complete package of relaxation, fun, joy and self-discovery

You'll be given all the tools and guidance needed to start your journey to a more mindful & joyous way of living.

Let go of the external pressures that overwhelm you and transform into a world of inner peace, well-being and Joy.. and perhaps the odd Meg Ryan moment

I get it - you're looking to add more joy, fun, and vitality to your life, not make it more stressful.

This retreat is designed to help you relax and indulge in delicious, locally-sourced meals without any guilt.


European-style dinners served with a glass of wine are the norm, so you can enjoy life's simple pleasures.

My name is Lisa Marie Staab

Conscious Living Mentor & Mindful Foodie

I'm a Certified Mindfulness, Meditation & Wellness Mentor, Member of Meditation Australia, Reiki Master Practitioner, Trained Chef & actually also have a Diploma of International Travel - because why not right?! 

Clearly, I'm addicted to learning - in fact, it's a core value.

As is freedom, traveling and spreading some joy in the world. 

I also happen to be a mother to two (adult & teenager), am a committed life adventurer & ex-corporate chick who enjoys real food and the odd glass of wine... along with a good belly laugh. 

I've been holding regular Retreats as well as being more recently entrenched in learning and teaching the principles of the Blue Zones (think longevity) along with bringing Mindfulness Principles into everyday,  REAL LIFE.
