NEW CALL: Forever Always Retreat #13

Retreat #13 - 29th October - 1st November 2009

Will be held at Glengarry, situated on the edge of Ku-ring-gai National park in Sydney’s leafy suburb of North Turramurra.

Have you been thinking about going on one of those Weekend Retreats you've heard people rave about???? Then why not check out this one.

For only $265 for a private room or $250 for Dorm style 3 nights accommodation including meals, which I must say not only leave you full but also leave your mouth watering just thinking about the remaining meals ahead. I can say from my experience that our chef (hey mum now retired - but my sister is just as good) knows how to put together an awesome meal.

This is definitely not a RESORT but after having attended a couple of Resort Style Weekend Retreats, I can honestly say your not in your room long enough to justify the price. As for the beds they are single, clean and comfortable, once again I am speaking from experience.

It's not a boot camp, so there are no set tasks other than the daily challenges (which are there to inspire great creativity, and its your choice to join in), at least one class a day...sometimes we try and fit in a couple more but again the choice is your.

It's simply a great weekend to have time out for yourself and meet fellow scrappers. No feeling GUILTY for making a MESS, no having to pack up at the end of the NIGHT, you just put your tools down and crawl into bed. Literally!

Although if you wish to take a break, there is plenty of outside seating in the sun for reading, or all that wonderful bushland just begging to be walked through and photographed. Remember it is your time do as you please. Doors open at midday on Thursday 29th October, and we will say farewell around lunchtime on Sunday 1st November !!!

Non Refundable deposit is due NOW to confirm you spot. Balance is taken in two montly installments to help you out - in the 2 months prior to the event. For more information, please feel free to contact me (Sonia) on 0414 982 774 before we fill up!!!
