Are you seeking to fill your cup and lean into the simple truth that you are whole?

Introducing the Wholeness Women's Retreat; here to remind you that you are truly complete. This weekend retreat will provide space and time to slow down & soften in. Yin, feminine energy will soak into your cells with the beautiful blend of practice, connection and solitude.

This is for you, my love. The part of you that you go to war with. The part of you that says 'I am worthy of fulfilling my desires & needs'. You know that you are already whole, and do not need fixing or mending. You simply need to fill your cup, and not just everyone else's. Let this retreat ensure that your cup is not only full, yet overflowing.

Retreat Feedback

"What a beautiful weekend! Every moment at the retreat was so carefully planned and the attention to detail was so thoughtful. Alicia did such of wonderful job of helping us to reset and restore our minds and bodies with beautiful meditation and yoga practices. The food was delicious and filled our bellies as well as our souls. The property was stunning and I came home feeling a sense of calm and peace. Thank you so much Alicia 💗"


"The retreat I attended with Alicia began with a gentle arrival of all the guests, we settled in and got to know each other over some amazing locally prepared gourmet food. It was a huge highlight of our healing (good nourishment and flavours). The evening, a sound bath and meditation to settle us in for the first night - the rest of the weekend was complete relaxation and comfort with no pressure to fulfil any tasks and just go with the flow with each other as we naturally felt. Saturday was filled with Reiki, nature walks, sauna and more AMAZING catered food for our delight. The food, the delicate attention to detail, loving support and time for introspection and comfort of everyone was so inspiring. I felt myself really connect to the sisters Saturday night during a heartfelt dinner and share. What a blessing it was to be invited into such a loving held space by Alicia. Sunday morning was led by an emotional closing circle and reflection for each sister which really brought home for me the meaning of community and sisterhood. Alicia is a loving, gentle and considerate facilitator, leaving nothing out! I would love to be at another event. Such a gift and receiving for the soul 💚"


"I always leave Alicia’s events with my cup full, so when she announced her retreat I knew I had to go and I’m so glad I did. There is something so special about being away with a group of likeminded women. We were able to connect, share, relate, cry, laugh, cook, prepare and eat together in such a wholesome way. The two days was filled with circles, yoga, healing and so much more. Self-care and prioritising your wellbeing always seem to take a back seat but this retreat was something I could do for myself and it was so worth it. I would definitely recommend Samvida’s retreats."

The location
Daylesford, Vic

The beautiful Cedar & Stone is a retreat in itself ~ situated on 5 acres of parkland with luxury bedrooms divided across two houses, it's a peaceful place to rest and come home to yourself & the sisterhood. It is equipped with fireplaces, rich wood ceilings, an infrared sauna, soft bedding, and stained glass windows that set the charming, cosy vibe. The property is wonderfully secluded with private woodland surrounding the two dwellings, native animals regularly passing through. What a special place to wake up to!

Who is this for?

This is for all women, of all ages and walks of life. It's an opportunity for you to fill your cup and create space for nurturing You (we all need a little helping hand from time to time) ~

What will you gain from the experience?

The deepest intention for this retreat is to remind you of your wholeness. At Samvida, we want women to embody their whole selves, because all of you speaks beauty regardless of what you've been led to believe. This retreat will support you to feel a deeper connection to your life and your purpose, to love who you are, and to feel empowered and holistically well.

The weekend will provide plenty of time and opportunity to rest, soften, feel, heal, connect, make beautiful friendships, and be warmly and wonderfully nourished. It is our mission to send you home with less weight on your shoulders, and a more profound sense of wholeness for your life and your being.
