Phenomenal Woman Retreat… Walk to the sand at beautiful Killcare Beach. Refresh your spirit in the sea…

So many women that I talk to tell me how exhausted they feel. With the demands of work, family and the challenges of finding time for self care, you can feel so empty and tired. I didn’t create this retreat so that you have to fulfull another expectation and be ‘phenomenal’. I created it so that you could take time out, rest and then FEEL phenomenally GOOD! Inside of yourself…

I want you to meditate on the beach, paddle your toes in the salt water, find time for real conversations and to chill out. That is why I have created this beautiful weekend. Just for you. To retreat from the demands of life and to take time to focus on the most important person in the world… YOU.

You will be given the space to meditate, find stillness, listen to your heart and be in the company of like minded women. There will be healthy food, a gorgeous bedroom in a luxury beach house, crisp white sheets, gorgeous music, candles, the loving presence of other women and inspiring teaching to support you to find your own best answers. When you feel peaceful, answers arise organically…

And did I mention? There will be peace and space… plenty of peace and space 

Please join me for a replenishing weekend. Email me now for more info and to secure your space!

I need to get final numbers in place now, so if you are considering joining us then please send me a message so that I can save you a space.

19-21 October 2018 with arrival from 4pm Friday and leave after lunch on Sunday by 3pm.

Hope to see you there. Make sure you book early so that you secure your place. In peace and joy…

Love Margie xx

Let it Go

Let it Go

I love this poem given to me by a dear friend and colleage, Bernadette. Whenever I read it I am reminded to settle down, to allow life to happen instead of pushing and straining to ‘make it happen’. It really is at the heart of the Phenomenal Woman Retreat too which is about empowerment and letting go of the old so that what you truly want in your heart can become your springboard for living.

She Let Go She let go.

Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.

She didn’t analyse whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

Rev. Safire Rose

I also love this clip from the children’s movie Frozen. She is brave and strong and over apologising for herself! Worth a few minutes to listen to the lyrics.

Please join me 19-21 October at beautiful Killcare Beach for a connected, warm and inspiring retreat right at the beach and only 1.5 hours north of Sydney. Click here to find out more info and to secure your space.


Do you Love Life? Free eBook Getting to the Heart of Stress!

Do you Love Life? Free eBook Getting to the Heart of Stress!

In 2015 I went into a spiral of worry about money, about my health, about my relationship with my husband, about my career and about life in general. I was teetering on the edge of an emotional bottomless pit and my whole life seemed to be moving in a downward vortex of depression and anxiety which both came knocking in a serious way and since then I have relearned how to Love Life!



As a psychotherapist and teacher, I knew the answer wasn’t about the external circumstances, though Goddess knows I wanted to change them.

I went back to therapy and through the love and support of a wonderful therapist, I came to recognise that fundamentally, I felt stressed out all the time. The causes of the stress were ‘real’ enough but I needed to understand why I felt so helpless and such a victim to the ravages of stress both mentally and physically.

My blog is for women. I love men, but I reckon most of my followers are phenomenal women who are seekers and want to feel competent, happy and balanced. You want to manage the stresses of everyday life like motherhood, being a partner, being single, working like crazy and keeping all the balls in the air and have an interest in living a conscious life, feeling full of joy, living in a way that values others and most importantly yourself. You make responsible, sustainable choices that benefit both humanity and planet earth. and can genuinely and authentically say I “Love Life!” (yes there will a t-shirt or more likely an organic cotton Yoga singlet)

I choose not to accept that this is “as good as it gets” and I never will. I want to keep growing until the day I die (which is approaching faster than I would like lol). I have always wanted answers, so when life turned to shit, I set out to re-design my life from the ground up. What that meant was I had to essentially re-design myself.

Since I launched Heartnicity in 2015 and publishing Getting to the Heart of Stress, I have presented a range of workshops and retreats  to support other women, given up alcohol, taken up yoga, completely changed my diet, lost 18 kilos and reached a new level of intimacy with my life partner.

In the process I’ve crystallised all I’ve learnt from many years as a therapist and educator into a simple 3 step method called The Heartnicity Method and I’m going to share with you what it’s like to put that into practice. I invite you into my life to see how I approach the stressful environments of 21st century living with Awareness, Acceptance and making heart-based choices and Action that keep me living on my Path of Heart.

I have had so much pleasure rediscovering my love of fashion, beauty and all the other ‘Toys of Life’ stuff and really feel good about my self-image again. I am on a beautiful and delightful path of self-care…

So, would you like to join me? Then just subscribe to my YouTube channel! I will be uploading every Saturday.

I plan to explore the Big Questions like:

What’s the point if we’re all going to die anyway? Will I ever be happy? How do I manage stress well? What’s in the way of me Loving Life? Can I love clothes, makeup and shopping and still be spiritual? What is glowing good health? and how do I get me some?

Here are some words that capture what I’m all about!

Conscious, Natural, Organic, Education, Mindful, Cutting Edge, Science,  Neuroscience, Reality, Authentic, Joy, Meditation, Yoga, Nutrition, Fashion, Beauty, Healthy Ageing, Books, Blogs, Technology, Spirituality, Duality, Remarkable Women, Health, Friends, Lovers, Personal Development, Fun, Leisure, Sex After 50, Celibacy, Travel, Finances, Freedom, Plants, Family, Sanctuary, Gorgeous Clothes, Beautiful Bed Linen, Feminism, Body Image, Growing Organic Stuff, Making Natural Stuff, Smelling Adorable Stuff, Connecting With Others, The Wisdom Of Women, Walking Barefoot, Sand Between My Toes, Salt Air, Mountains, Australian Bush, Love, Solitude and Big Naps.

I’m going to be interviewing women who are aligned with me and discovering what motivates them. I’ve got some gorgeous product ideas to share with you and maybe even some giveaways on the horizon, so we can all feel just a bit more adored and nurtured.

There will be live events, retreats, webinars, video logs and links to great stuff I find out about that I think you might love too!

I want you to feel inspired to grow, educated to know and motivated to glow…

Join me each week by subscribing to my blog. Plus, if you subscribe to my YouTube channel, I will thank you by sending a link for your free copy of my eBook Getting to the Heart of Stress. Tell a friend who also subscribes, and I will send them a copy too!

The video log on my YouTube page is part of the new incarnation of my inner Boggess so I have cleared the history and as a result, YouTube is a bit sparse, but I will be adding regularly.

I really believe you can love your life more as you travel on your path and I look forward to sharing with you how I have done this and how you can too.

Love, kisses, hugs and masses of gratitude to you for reading until the end. As my dear friend Mirva says “Love you, Love you, Love you!”

Margie xoxo
