Event Details

Join our one day workshop for professional women who are seeking success in their professional and personal life

When we started talking about what were the big issues we could address for The Global Goddess Project’s Autumn Retreat, the issues of “own voice” topped the list: how do you find, let alone express, your authentic self when there is so much pressure to be the “perfect woman”?

What is authenticity? How do we “show our true selves” when we’ve faced decades of advice on how to act, what to wear, who to admire and when to speak? Women of all ages are struggling to identify their “core” and act authentically from there.

Imperfection is also a big issue that goes hand in hand: to be so exposed is often seen as a sign of weakness, of having multiple targets on your back. As high achievers, we know we want more, we want to push ourselves to the maximum of our abilities and these days we have such great role models. And such flaws can haunt us.

As spiritually minded, practical professional women, we know there is a time for work to be done on ourselves and to fix these for a better future.

Join Dr Grace Lai, Founder of The Global Goddess Project, a trusted advisor on brain, spine and mind care, and Lynne Robertson, Principle of Now Professional Coaching for the Autumn Retreat, a one day workshop that will leave you feeling rejuvenated, nourished, focused and inspired…. All the benefits of a holiday without having to pack a suitcase!

Or, you can request a Discovery Session before signing up: this way you know what you're getting yourself into and we can see if the retreat is right for you. The Autumn Retreat is our most intense retreat, focused on professional and personal goals. We're looking for kick-starters, go-getters and people who intensely want more in their life. For a more chilled out retreat, register your interest for our Winter Retreat (July 18, 2015).

How is this retreat different from other yoga / self development retreats?

The Global Goddess Project is a network of professional women who seeks balance and rejuvenation. We attract strong, practical women who realise they need to educate and re-evaluate their minds, bodies and spirits constantly to live full, amazing and passionate lives.

All our retreats have components of education on personal development, nutrition, yoga and meditation, as well as the abiding Goddess principles of Thought, Movement and Food.

For the Autumn Retreat, the strongest focus will be on personal development, particularly goal-setting and professional development. Autumn, in Chinese philosophy, is the season for organisation, order, setting limits: this season is about getting the "backend processes", the engine and systems in array.

Want to know more? Find us on Facebook, or email us for a Discovery Session before signing up.

What is the refund policy? 

Full refunds are available within 7 days prior the retreat. Thereafter, catering and location-based commitments have been made with our suppliers.
