Loving You Retreat, The Ultimate Experience
11-15 September, 2017
Palm Cove, Qld, Australia
Immerse yourself in this incredible learning and healing experience within the very special energies of the Tropical Far North, where you’ll learn how to put yourself back in sync with your Destiny Path. Learn how to love yourself enough to say yes to your needs, so that you too can experience the fullness of a happy and loving life that literally attracts success and opportunity.
How often have you prioritised the needs of others over your own, just to keep the peace, to help out or because you’ve got a bit of a problem with doing too much for others? It’s time to make a change and what a way to do it!
Sourcing the brilliance from Karina Godwin’s many years of healing expertise and her personal experience in beating a rare, large cancer (as featured in her book, Destiny…Put Yourself First!). Karina’s journey of prioritising herself last and then learning how to put herself first through having cancer creates a fascinating and intimate insight into her deeply raw experience. Use your newly gained knowledge, and the ease and brilliance of Karina’s tools and techniques right away. Ensure you’re leading a life you love and enjoy, one that makes self-love a daily reality.
