Discovery in Recovery
Discovery in Recovery : Connect to the Wisdom Within
4 - 11 October 2024
If you are curious about living your life fully, without alcohol, or if you are already longer term sober and wondering what to do next with your life, then this retreat is for you. There will be daily all level yoga from Alex McRobs (Sober Yoga Girl), followed by a daily sharing circle with experienced circles facilitator Carolyn Clark. These sisterhood meetings will give you the space to connect, share, and empower ourselves and each other.
Self awareness is noticing the rhythm of your thoughts, but leading busy lives means that it can be difficult to hear those rhythms. We will take the opportunity to be still, listen to our own heart, explore our inner wisdom. We will take a deep dive into our previous relationship with alcohol, and gain a greater clarity of our own values, and how to live our life aligned with our purpose. We will also have a lot of fun! Also included in the cost is the opportunity to attend a virtual circle with Carolyn Clark so we can reconnect with our sisters a few weeks after our experience.
More about the Retreat
The retreat is limited to 10 women, and will be an intimate gathering in which to feel safe with your sisterhood. We will turn the carpe diem dial up to maximum, and every day will be filled with a meaning, a purpose, as well as the chance to have a wonderfully relaxing and fun time on this paradise island.
This retreat is filled with various activities to promote our wellbeing, and send our spirits soaring. Of course, there will be free time in which to lounge by the resort pool, or visit the temples of Ubud, the sacred monkey forest, explore the numerous shops and markets, get pampered in one of the many salons, or even hire a driver to explore further. This retreat will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience from which you will return refreshed, invigorated, and ready to embark on the next phase of your life.

Sessions with Carolyn Clark
International Flights to and from Bali
Bali was everything and more. The retreat location was set amongst the tranquil rice-fields and each morning I woke to the sound of the birdsongs. Carolyn is a wonderful retreat leader. For me the balance she delivered was perfect. The trips out were so well organised and ran with precision but also had the feeling of “light hearted Bali, where time doesn’t matter”. I felt in very capable, safe hands. Our daily sharing circles were lead by Carolyn in a gentle, thoughtful, kind, inclusive way and they certainly benefitted me during my week.
open air yoga studio caught the morning sunrise everyday and the backdrop was a scene of my most sought after visualisation. The carefully curated itinerary was perfect for me and I wouldn’t have asked to change a thing. The free time was enough to use the pool at the retreat and enjoy the sun loungers or head into Ubud to explore the beautiful architectural or do some shopping or indulge in a massage, the choices and options are endless.
The food was delicious with plenty of options. My time here at the retreat in Bali will remain in my heart as one of the most spiritual and special times of my life. 5 stars from me to a very wonderful lady. Thank you
