March New Moon Forest Retreat
March. March is here. Is anyone else shaking their head a little with that?
How has the year begun for you?
Are you still in that high energy state that you were at the beginning of the year with all those high hopes and dreams for 2018? Or are you carrying around beliefs, ideas, patters, relationships, that are no longer vibing with you…but just not sure what to do next?
Do you have a process of reviewing the last month, releasing the stuff that no longer serves and resetting for the next month ahead?
Or are you someone who kind of stores everything up until ‘next year’ or ‘after this thing’ or ‘when all this other stuff is sorted out’? And is that bringing you a sense of joy and yumminess in your body?
You. How are you?
– Are you still in the pattern of putting everyone else needs first.
– Are you still being an arsehole to yourself about not getting it all ‘right’
– Are you frustrated you just don’t seem to be getting anywhere, despite trying your bloody hardest.
– Are you tired. Like in your bones tired?
– Are you wandering around not really knowing what the heck you are supposed to do next?
– Are things completely out of flow despite you ‘knowing’ all the stuff?
WE GET IT. You are not alone sweet beauty!
Jay and I would love for you to join us as we guide you through the review, the release receive and the reset, using the energy of the new moon.
This is a completely guided and introspective adventure and so there is very little sharing in the group. It really is a supported process of hitting the old reset button.
It really is 3 hours of bliss. Like really! It is bliss.
This is not a head thing, where you will be tested or challenged on anything…it will seriously alter the little vibes in your body! Big call right??
CHECK OUT what one of our recent beauties had to say about the event (she has been twice).
“Thank you again for such an incredible evening, I absolutely loved it and I had so much fun.
So much again to gush about, you two are both such amazing ladies and to provide us with this opportunity for us women to allow us to have this time for ourselves and reflect which is really special. Even though I have been to this event before, I got just as much out of it the second time if not more! It was such a different experience for me.
It was a lovely group of woman and like I said on the night, left me feeling really connected, refreshed, and energized.
Thank you again and I look forward to catching up with you both again soon”.
Friday March 16th (what an awesome way to enter the weekend).

Hope to see you there.
Mother & Daughter Creative Connection Day
Sunday 12th, November
9am – 12pm
We’re mums. We get that the kids do a lot of really cool things. They hang with the fam, with their friends, their devices.
We run them around to sport things, birthday parties, and other miscellanious things.
Many of us have other things that take our attention, like other kids, domestic duties, work and husbands.
So, we thought it would be fun to have a morning of creative connection, just mummies and their daughters. We posted it on Facebook to see if anyone would be keen, and the responce was overwhelming.
We’ve put together what we feel is a day where we really get to connect with our girls and them with us, have some creative expression, chow down on some yummy delights, take home special gifts for each of you and do a wee bit of “yoga-but-not-yoga” too!
Just like a mini retreat 😉
If this sounds like something that you and your girlie may want to be a part of, book your little spots or PM for more info.
WHAT TO BRING
# Yoga mat x 2
# Wear comfy clothes
# Water bottle
WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID
“Thank you to yourself and Jay for Sunday it was long overdue for me to spend quality time with my little woman. In the fact I kept thinking of her and how precious time and life is and what a privilege we have as mothers. I just was so touched after the blindfold moment and on reflection it was about my past relationship with my mother. Funny how things can trigger a reaction and at the time I couldn’t figure out why I was emotional but I keep thinking of the day and little things come up. Looking after our inner child is equally as important I have found and being kind to ourselves.I loved it and am always looking searching for self improvement and have a passion for mental health. I loved the purses for the girls – gorgeous and the card and affirmation for me. Thank you!! I’ve decided to pull out my dusty Louise Hay affirmations 💕💕” SP
“I had no idea what to expect and went in pretty nervous. I wasn’t the only one it seems. In such a short time I felt so safe and was so blown away with how these few hours impacted me in the way they did. I feel so much more confident connecting with my daughter now, in a playful and yet deep way. Thanks you so much women for making this workshop. We are both just so grateful”. AP

Sometimes we want to get feedback, or affirmation on something that we have created, and then consider putting out into the world of Facebook, but sometimes that feels like being naked in front of all of your FB friends and their FB friends, so, you don’t do it and that creative spark goes out.
Or we want to share it with friends, but we have shared so much stuff with them, that they smile and nod and say, “Oh, another idea? Ok. Good. Can you pass the wine?”
We want to tell our family and they say, “Is that even a real thing?”. Sigh!
Maybe you don’t share it with anyone because you are afraid that it is stupid and give up before you have even started!
And I gotta tell you, all of that….that is NOT OK.
Yep. I said it.
And I don’t want to argue with you about it!
That creative light, creative urge is your life calling.
We are all called to create a life that is uniquely ours. There are over 7 billions ways to live this life!
Lets create our own ways!
If you feel drawn to write, but you are afraid to practice ‘out there’, I get that. But that call you hear. That pull. You not following that…that is NOT OK.
If you feel drawn to speak in from of people about stuff you are passionate about, but don’t feel confident yet, we want to be your crowd. And unlike some arenas you might go in to, we are completely on your side!
If you feel like you don’t know what your creative love is, great…that means you have so many things to explore. And exploring on your own can be scary…so we want to be with you! God knows, I don’t want to do it all alone all of the time!
If you want to run a workshop, but keep walking around in circles with content or ideas or maybe you have ideas but the logistics are keeping you stuck…lets talk.
Or perhaps you want to create a retreat…we’ve got your back there too!
If you want to create a ‘new way’, lets bounce that.
Maybe you want to start a course and you want to be supported through that!
We got you!
That spark, it needs oxygen to grow. And we want to be the wind to turn that spark in to full flame!
The world is not benefiting from your lack of light! We need MORE light!
Your story. How you want to tell it. How you want to live it! It is time to light that up.
And we are looking to support the flame.
I have always had this vision of the world lighting up, one little light at a time. And this year, I feel it more.
Collaborating. Not competing.
Working together. Not against.
Life is happening FOR us. Not TO us. And we are a part of the creation.
I don’t know about you, but doing it on your own is just, well, I find it suckful.
Using all of our gifts and talents together to create something really great. Individually and collectively. With the ultimate goal to pass on the flame!
You light up, you become available to help light others up too!
This will remain a closed group, and going forward for those who are added, I want to connect with them to make sure their intention for joining is to learn, grow AND share.
I have been a part of a lot of groups in the past, and I know there are people who feel like they are not worthy to share, so they watch from the sidelines. This is NOT one of those groups.
This is women supporting women, and while I get that everyone can be short on time…truly, I get that, just providing some feedback for those brave enough to share their stuff, not smoke blowing, but real heart felt feedback, constructive, helpful….is MASSIVE.
We all know what it feels like to put something ‘out there’ and it is met with silence. It can be crushing when the crowd stares on, whispering.
We want to be in the front row while you show case your stuff. And we want to see you and your creations. And we want to cheer. And we want to debrief after and give feedback.
This is a group where we maintain a conversation. A positive conversation about creativity. The barriers. The types. The experiences.
If you feel like this is a place for you, then I welcome you to stay. If you are thinking, ‘nah, not for me’, I completely get that! We will be sad if you leave, but we understand!
We will share our art, our songs, our skits, our drawings, our dances, our writing, our inspirations….
We will set challenges. We will encourage discomfort for growth. We will talk about fear. About joy. And all the stuff in between!
Like really in?
Imagine if there were no rules!
What could we create??
But before you you take the next step. Yes, it will take an investment in you.
But it will be worth it.
YOU are worth it!
You still in??
How often will we meet up?
Mostly or bi-monthly, depending on the group.
How much time will be required of me?
This is one of those ‘piece of string’ questions. Without trying to be vague, it really depends.
Is there any structure to the group?
– Communication happens via a closed Soul Creative Facebook Page and emails.
– Every Sunday you will be offered a Creative Experiment to share with the group. Examples might be taking a photograph, or finishing a sentence, or interpretation of some song lyrics. It isn’t going to be too time consuming. But designed to activate the play centre of the brain!
– Each week (Thursday night) I will do a LIVE FACEBOOK thing in the group on a special topic related to the Creative Experiment at hand, and other juice stuff. Here you can ask questions, give feedback, chat with the group.
– Each month we will have a special topic that we will explore. Like gratitude. Flow. Compassion. Prosperity. Forgiveness.
– You’ll have access to the group 24/7, so you can be supported always.
– Scheduled group gatherings monthly or bi-monthly (or more frequently), depending on the group.
– Resources. So many resources!
How many people in the group?
This round I expect between 10 and 15. Looking to build it to 33 and keep it at that level.
How long do I invest for?
We will be running this session until April 1st and then start a new session. Those who have paid by January 27th have the option to continue in the group for no extra cost.
Do I need to contribute?
Yes. This is an active group. Not a thinking only group. Play time is calling!
Can I get my money back?
Yes. If you hate it, tell me why and I’ll give you your money back!
What do you have to lose?
Once payment is received, You will be given your first creative experiment that is SO FUN and more like an ice-breaker for when you come to the group!
It’s easy peesy and not scary at all! Promise! Clothes will stay on 😉
On February 1st, you will be added to our Soul Creative Super Hero FB page where we will say ‘hi’ to everyone and we will get on the with fun of creating a life we love…even more than we do now!
Does it get any better?
Yes. It does. And it will!
Creative support. Inspiration. Business bounce. Group snuggly love.
“BYE BYE 2016; New Moon Release & Renew”
18th of December, 2017
With a 5.28pm Ceremonial Commencement!
North Burleigh Heads (on the rocks at the bottom of the hill).
Because we believe in ceremony and the collective act of releasing anything that no longer serves us in this life and providing space to bring in that which does serve us!
You and a loved one if you choose.
Free as a bird.
WHAT TO BRING?
A candle, something yummy to nibble on…prefereably food 😉
We have heard of FULL moon ceremonies. Right? Or not.
Well, this isn’t one of those.
This is something a little different.
The new moon hold different energy than the full moon. And we want to flow with that!
It is a symbolic portal for new beginnings. And on the 29th, it is the last new moon for 2016!
2016 is about to be over. And for a lot of us human folk it has been a bit of a tough year. For me personally it was a year of learning a lot from life. Through lessons I didn’t think I signed up for at the beginning of the year.
I personally am feeling the deep call to release anything that doesn’t serve me in my life anymore. I am hearing the call to let go and un-baggage myself of the things that hold me back and weigh me down.
And I know I am not the only one.
A bunch of wholeness wayfinders are feeling it too.
We want to invite YOU to share in a very low key release and renew experience. It maybe a wee tiny bit ‘woo-woo’ because you know us, we roll that we a bit.
I say maybe, because honestly, we never know how these things are going to go completley. But what we do know is that there will be emense LOVE infused.
A little taster of what the night might bring:
– Sharron is going to be leading a beautiful MEDIATION on the evening, which really means a way to get us present with the experience. And whatever else this creative feels lead to do.
– Jay is going to master-ise some SACRED CEREMONIAL ACTIVITIES for us which will be love infused and connected yumminess.
– I’m going to faciliate some MOVEMENT and a little new moon RELEASE activity.
AND really, who knows what other delights are going to be offered up!
No DEFINATLEY hugs!
This is a PRIVATE EVENT, which really means that it is a ‘know someone who knows someone’ kind of deal. That it isn’t an all and sundry kind of experience as we usually have them.
If you have been invited, and you feel like you want to bring another soul along with you, we leave that completely up to you. You don’t need to check in with us.
**The only thing that you need to bring (at this stage) is a candle. Something yummy to share to eat. And an open heart.
Once you have said you are coming, I will message you the contemplation questions for the night.
If you have any more questions. You know what to do!
Big love to you!
Gathering folks who want to do some positive stuff in the world.
Date and venue and other specifics to be confirmed.
I feel the burn again. I know that if I am feeling it then there are some others feeling it.
Last GATHERING was completely intense! It was earth shaking and intense. Really! It was healing. It was purposeful and it was heart expanding! We were heart exploded actually!
Next GATHERING we want to bring together folks who are interested in making a difference in the world. Folks who want to use their gifts to make a positive impact on the community.
WHO ARE THESE FOLKS?
- These folks are “I’m up for that” kind of folks.
- They are completely out of their comfort zones but are willing to be supported anyway.
- They are comfortable with humans.
- They know their gifts and strengths and if they don’t they are keen to learn them and use them!
- They are kind
- They trust themselves and don’t blindly ‘follow’.
- They want to make a difference and do what matters to them
- They are willing to lose the negative blah and embrace the possibilities
- They are imperfect and don’t expect anyone else to be perfect
- They are willing to learn
- Willing to grow
If this sounds like you, then maybe you want to come to our next GATHERING. This won’t be an “Open to All” kind of deal. We want to know that we have the folks that match the list we have above.
So, if it feels like it might be you, fill in the box below and in the comments box, let me know why you want to be apart of this next gathering and lets work out where and when we can GATHER next.
Speak kindly to yourself.
Big, big love!

Or you and a friend?
Or just beautiful YOU.
There may be a few things that you may or may not know about the two gals behind Soul Oxygen, so here’s a few.
- We’re curious creators and we love trying new things
- We love getting out of our comfort zone (even if in the lead up we can feel sick with nerves and wonder what we’re doing; the outcome is usually…’Yay that’s why. That was awesome!’)
- We love music and movement
- We are passionate ‘learners’
- We just want to have an experience…I mean why not
AND…most importantly we love sharing the stuff we love!!!
Which leads us to our last event for the year that we’d like to share with YOU!

This is a facilitated Drumming session by someone who is very well versed in the skill of all things drumming and the like. So no…this won’t be facilitated by either Jen or myself (although that would be quite funny)! *Insert massive sigh of relief!

SO HERE WE GO AGAIN!
**SPACE FOR YOUR SOUL TO BREATH**
[Only 1 spot left…no pressure…hehe]
After facilitating our last retreat…we are absolutely left wanting MORE!
WHY? Why do this?
We want more time to play. More time to explore. More time to connect. More time to learn. More time to just BE. And we know that our past participants feel the same!
Since our last retreat, we have been flooded with interest in our next big adventure and of course, because we love what we do it is ABSOLUTELY time to play again!
We listen to where we are called to be of service and this is definitely one of the places we are called.
If you are like us, people who love a big of adventure, a break from routine, some personal growth opportunities, some music, laughing, mixing it up with like hearted souls, maybe this weekend is for you.
What are we creating?
The words of Leonard Cohen sum it up best:
“It isn’t about turning your back on the world, it’s about stepping away now and then so that you can see the world more clearly, and love it more deeply”.
Don’t you want to love YOU and YOUR WORLD more deeply?
What stuff are you going to experience?
- Guided meditations to help centre and restore personal energy
- Beginners yoga and body awareness activities.
- Personal Growth Facilitation; focussed on relationships, inner wellness and self care.
- Laughs…lots of laughs!!
- Mindfulness teachings and practices to cultivate living in the NOW!
- Adventure (shhh, these adventures are a surprise)
- Techniques to reduce stress and for getting in touch with YOU.
- Eat – amazing, nourishing, high vibrational food
- Examine personal blocks stopping you from living your fullest vibrant life.
In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions.
1. When did you stop dancing?
2. When did you stop singing?
3. When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
4. When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?
Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul.
Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing selves.
