Spring retreat to Sydney’s north west

Take the opportunity to unplug and recharge your batteries in preparation for spring, in the peaceful surrounds of 60 acres of bush land in north west Sydney. This three night retreat will give you the time to explore ways of reconnecting to your spirit within.

Nourish your body with vegetarian meals and snacks and plenty of fresh air. Support yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and do as much or as little as you like.

A relaxed schedule will allow for the spontaneous—which is just the way nature intended. We will facilitate our group experience, Kurradji Dreaming to assist with releasing the past and allowing for the new energies of spring to emerge within.

There is the opportunity to book a discounted spiritual alignment with us, or you might choose to book a massage with the retreat centre.

Physical activity will include gentle walks in the properties’ bushland, daily yoga, the opportunity to use the tennis court, gym, pool, spa, and sauna.

We will spend time grounding each day during the retreat, as it’s a really simple way to re-centre ourselves and re-connect.

Most important, is the opportunity to take the space and time for yourself.

Why join this retreat?


Because the past couple of years on planet earth have been a bit challenging, and it’s time to fill our cup with rejuvenation for the nervous system, and our spiritual toolbelt with the skills and practices for thriving.

We’re being called to live more authentically, and more in alignment with who we really are. How do we do this though?

We will create space for you to connect with the group, where we’ll ponder this and many other topical questions. There’ll be time to hone some tools that Jason and Shelley find useful for managing their energy on a daily basis.


What will we be doing?

Yoga classes, meditation, and mantra practice will nourish your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies on a daily basis.

Vegetarian food and walks in the fresh air will give your body what it craves.

Kurradji Dreaming will transport you to the heart of the Creator to commune with your Star Ancestors, and receive countless gifts to feed your soul.

The opportunity to receive a spiritual alignment with Jason and Shelley at a discounted rate will lift the weight of the world from your shoulders.

Time for exploring the grounds, sitting by the pool, enjoying a cuppa with new friends, or simply reading a book provide much-needed ‘be-ing’ time.

Optional massage and private therapeutic yoga practice faciliated by Swami’s can be included at an additional cost.


It’s time to thrive, and to feel at home within ourselves, here on Mother Earth, and within the global human family.


Your retreat facilitators Shelley and Jason are passionate about helping people heal and achieve balance in the world.


Recounted after a group healing: “Individually you can feel their energy, together they pack a beautiful and powerful collection of healing and supportive energy! Jason and Shelley work beautifully together and I could feel them both working with their spiritual guides during the circle, offering everyone the support they needed, a beautiful experience!”

Retreat team

Shelley McConaghy

Shelley has been on her own spiritual journey since she was a teenager. As a very sensitive child, she picked up on what the people around her were feeling. This manifested in daily stomach aches and headaches from the age of seven. It was a relief later on to discover that she was literally taking on others pain as an ’empath’. Learning techniques to help manage this has proven invaluable in her work as a natural therapist.

As the founder of Divine Balance® Shelley is passionate about helping people on their spiritual journey. Her clients have described what she provides during healings as being bathed in the energy of the Divine Mother. Shelley certainly doesn’t have all the answers, but she is very willing to share what has worked for her, and what techniques her clients have found useful.

Jason Engelbrecht

As an Indigenous man of mixed genealogy, Jason brings a wealth of experience to his role as a Kurradji (Aboriginal medicine man). Jason’s abilities have been awoken through various spiritual initiations that began when he was a child. He works with a variety of different crystals to conduit the energy to his client, with the help of medicine people in the ancestral realms. Sound medicine always features as part of his healings, and smoke is used to cleanse and purify the energy field.

Jason’s clients experience pain relief and the freedom from spiritual ‘heaviness’ that can weigh us down. The lifting of the energetic dross from stored trauma in the body is something that Jason specialises in, as it’s something that he is passionate about helping his people heal.
