The retreat

Looking out over the beautiful rolling green hills of far northern NSW coast you will feel buoyed by the light and airy feel of stunning Stonehill Estate.  As you slow down the pace of life and gently allow your body to come to rest we'll explore how to create space for ourselves in our own busy, medical lives. Through our expertly led and CPD approved educational program covering mindfulness, meditation, communication skills, compassionate boundaries and self care- we will guide to finding your flow and spark. The you behind the doctor.

While all Whole Hearted Medicine retreats focus heavily on guiding you towards mindful and sustainable self care in the busy world of medicine, this particular retreat does this with an emphasis on deep, intimate connections.

Educational talks are held outside by the pool with the expansive open spaces providing a beautiful natural backdrop for meditations and reflections creating a rich sensory experience. Gentle yoga, morning meditations and guided breath work are also all included in the timetable to help you to slow down and tune into what your body and mind need.

The location

Stonehill Estate is the perfect place to escape from it all. Beautiful wide open vistas, the sparkling crystal clear pool, your every dream is brought to life in this gorgeous spot. Only one hour south of the Gold Coast and 40 minutes north of Ballina, Stonehill Estate is the perfect far north coast NSW spot to stop and soak up the sunshine!
