A note on Tantra:
Tantra is often misunderstood and tends to conjure a lot of fear for people, mostly with concerns about taking part in unsafe or uncomfortable sexual practices or situations.
I want you to know that some of the practices we’ll do in this retreat use sexual energy to help us open our hearts and reach higher states of love. Our sexual energy is simply our creative life force energy. You don’t have to have sex to access it, or even use it sexually. Knowing how to work with this energy has many health benefits for our vitality and radiance. That’s what we’ll work on in the retreat. I guarantee you there’ll be no sexual activity or nudity.
Your Guides For This Special Retreat
I’ve had many titles over the years, including award-winning TV and radio journalist and presenter, business owner, best-selling author, executive coach, astrologer, corporate trainer, mother and fierce advocate for women’s power. I’m also a Tao Tantric Arts (sacred femininity) teacher and priestess.
Beyond titles, what matters most to me is redeeming the glory of the Feminine in a world that mostly doesn’t even know what that means.
I stand for our pain, silence, rage, body hatred, shame and disconnection… and our beauty, vulnerability, authenticity, sensuality and pleasure as the path back to our power.
I’ve worked with hundreds of women around the world, and presented to hundreds more. I’ve run sold-out workshops and retreats, and published two books, including an Amazon international number one best-seller. I’ve also lived a lot of life. I’m a one-woman show and a full-time single mum. I’ve navigated divorce, bouts of severe fatigue, doses of depression and anxiety, and the kind of crippling grief that made me question how the rest of the world could function normally around me. Each time I’ve risen from the ashes, fuelled by self-trust and a belief in my worth and who I’m here to be in this world.
I’m known for helping women to step into and own their power, and creating spaces filled with safety, support and so much love, where every woman can come to the majesty of her own truth and magnificence.
I’m blessed to live in Ubud, Bali, surrounded by the beauty of nature and a gentle culture that reveres its wise women.
Like Tricia I’ve also worn many professional hats from marketing director to fashion designer and retail business owner. But I’ve also struggled with finding the balance in my health and wellness, juggling full-time work, raising two girls and running my own businesses.
For years I have tried every healthy eating program, alternative remedy and form of exercise to manage my eczema, stress and to stay fit. Hitting mid-life means you get to know your body and what works for you. I became a dedicated yogi and it’s now my saving grace. It brings a beautiful blend of mindfulness, soul and maintains flexibility and tone as you age.
As a modern woman, life is busy and taking time for yourself is hard. But the investment and reward you receive is a sense of focus and calm, and a happier more peaceful you.
I look forward to working with you each day to move through our Vinyasa flow that will bring you a greater awareness of your body, peace of mind and sense of living in the present and feeling grateful for every moment.
The retreat was magnificent, so spiritual, so divine, and the people, the connections, the synchronicity – everything! It’s unbelievable really, I’ve never experienced anything quite like that. It has been life-changing, it was inspiring, and I let my light shine.
~ Susan Ashby, From Here to There
It was amazing! A really safe space to dig deep. It was a very nourishing experience on a mental, spiritual and physical level. The bushwalking, the food, beautiful bed, surroundings, it all amazing. And it was so nice to be able to retreat every night as well and have that block of time away from my usual life.”
~ Kate Pembroke, Communications Consultant
This has been an amazing opportunity. The connections are so deep and so profound and the group of women who have been here are wonderful. I wouldn’t have been anywhere else, it’s just been a beautiful experience. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.”
~ Jo Tregear, Executive coach
I think that Tricia is an extraordinary facilitator and leader who has a capacity to create an experience for people where there’s safety and where people can go deep. Being on retreat has provided a space for things to bubble up and that’s been a really important part of it. Being with other women is a real opportunity to see that we’re all the same and doing the work together makes it easier to step forward because you’re really supported and that’s a beautiful thing.”
~ Dr Elise Bialylew, Founder, Mindful in May

Where We’ll Stay
We’ll spend 6 nights at Naya, a boutique retreat centre in Ubud, Bali.
Ubud is the spiritual, cultural and artistic centre of Bali.
Nestled in plush tropical gardens and surrounded by rice fields, Naya’s intention is to offer a place for souls to gather and reconnect with their potential, wisdom and gifts.
Recognised and featured as a luxury retreat destination, Naya offers privacy, stillness, so much beauty, and nourishing meals to support us as we claim our magic.
Naya is a seven-minute drive from the centre of Ubud, so you’ll have easy access to Bali’s cultural epicentre, with world-class restaurants, temples, galleries, spas and shopping.
