Byron Bay Spiritual Development Retreat

WELCOME to our spiritual development retreat. We are sure you will have a great time and learn lots as you immerse yourself in 5 days of spiritual bliss. You are with like-minded souls and this is a time to really ‘be yourself’ and discover the full potential of who you truly are – a magnificent soul!

Day One - Friday

This morning the group will assemble at Brisbane Airport where you will be met by Helen Barnes, your facilitator, healer, and nurturer, ready for your drive to Byron Bay. We will arrive in Byron in time to have lunch (own expense) and familiarise ourselves with the lovely township of Byron Bay. Drive time to Byron is approximately 2 hours.

Late afternoon we will drive and check in to our accommodation Byron Bay Cottages – Talofa (www.byronbaycottages.com.au) which is set in tranquil surroundings in the delightful Byron Hinterland on the Old Bangalow Road between Byron Bay and the delightful historic village of Bangalow. Our accommodation is located approximately 10 minutes from both townships and is self-catering in individual cottages sleeping up to 5 in each cottage.

Following time to settle in we will meet for a Welcome Get together and Opening Meditation. Dinner this evening will be at a local Bangalow restaurant (own expense).

Day Two - Saturday

Today begins with a communal breakfast at our accommodation followed by the first of our spiritual sessions:

Core Belief Re-patterning 

We all come into each incarnation with lessons to learn and so bring with us core beliefs that will support that particular learning or learning’s. This morning we are going to dig in and find out what beliefs we have running at this time that are holding us in limitation. Once we have established this, we are in a position to release these ‘outdated’ programmes that are running unconsciously in our lives and make way for new beginnings. Helen will channel Light Language to release discordant energy that is holding us bound to these beliefs so that we may be freed from them.

After our workshop, we will transfer to Bangalow for lunch (own expense) and afterwards some free time to explore Bangalow township which is a lovely heritage town with many restored Federation Style Buildings and an array of quality shops and cafés.

Dinner (own expense and weather permitting) will be a beach picnic followed by a meditation.

Day Three - Sunday

We will start today with a morning walk along the beach to prepare us for a full day of spiritual exploration. After breakfast Helen will facilitate the first of three spiritual sessions:

Past Lives Healing
As we enter each incarnation we bring with us unresolved and unfinished business from our past incarnations. This usually mirrors some issues we are experiencing in this lifetime. We also have positive aspects of past life energy that we wish to reclaim and integrate into this incarnation. In this afternoon’s workshop we will work to release and reclaim the past life energies that support re-alignment with our soul’s purpose.

We will break for lunch (at our accommodation) and then continue with the second of our spiritual sessions:

Being Your Authentic Self
As we grow spiritually it is important to live in alignment with our truth. Very often we are living within the framework and conditioning that has been imposed on us by others and are therefore living in our ‘heads’ rather than our hearts. Living in our hearts is the only pathway to real happiness and so finding our authentic selves is vital to our personal spiritual ascension. In this session Helen will lead you through a process to find your innermost authentic truth and help you to make the changes to live in alignment with your truth. This session has the potential to change your life forever!

Our final spiritual session for the day will be:

Reclaiming Your Personal Power
Very often we give our power away by being the victim and not taking full self responsibility for everything that happens in our lives. We are creator beings (a spark of God) and are co-creating everything in our lives. We must take full responsibility for everything that happens to us by coming fully into a state of personal empowerment. We are all spiritually powerful beings and yet, to fully manifest that power, we must first reclaim our personal power in all that we do.

This evening we will have dinner at a local Byron Bay restaurant (own expense).

Day Four - Monday

After breakfast we will drive to Crystal Castle, set in the Byron Hinterland. Crystal Castle hosts a café, crystal shop, gallery and beautiful gardens. We will have time to walk the labyrinth and the gardens, shop and relax in the café. This is a very peaceful spot and walking the labyrinth is a magical thing to do. We will have lunch (own expense) at the café at Crystal Castle and after lunch head back to our cottages for our afternoon session:

Our afternoon session is:

Higher Frequency Recoding/DNA recalibration
Having spent the previous days healing that which no longer serves us, we are ready to do some re-engineering on our Light Bodies, recalibrating our DNA to higher frequencies and reconnecting the broken circuitry that holds us in the limitation of the 3rd dimension. We will work with the Galactic Federation to attune ourselves to higher dimensional energies in preparation for ascension. Individual energy work will be facilitated by Helen on each participant.

Dinner will be at a local restaurant in Bangalow (own expense).

Day Five - Tuesday

This morning we will rise early and depart for Brisbane Airport to catch our return flights home. Having made wonderful new friends and experienced the joy of spiritual reunion we will return home with much love, joy and peace in our hearts. And so it is.
