DO NOTHING WEEKEND RETREAT

CAN YOU ESCAPE THE CITY & DO NOTHING WEEKEND RETREAT?

“Doing nothing on purpose transports your distracted mind, beyond boredom, to where rest, realisation and creativity effortlessly reside.” – @alexwhite.com.au

“DOING NOTHING” is a nature-based weekend experience.

Held at Raven’s Nest Retreat Space in Venus Bay, 2 hours from the city nestled into the dunes of the South Gippsland coast – Gunai/Bunurong Country.

The weekend is perfect for:

  • Stressed humans, exhausted from living in a culture of constant doing.
  • Tired people want to escape and rest within a forested sanctuary.
  • Distracted humans that recognise they’re addicted to “all the things” and it’s costing them.
  • People need a break, some care, guidance & time with nature.
  • People want more energy and creativity and to remember what’s truly important.

Alex White, as caretaker of the land and facilitator of relaxation, has designed experiences for overloaded people who need to remember the value of deep rest.

  • All-inclusive retreat on nature’s doorstep including jacuzzi, cold dip and 270-degree views.
  • Unique situations that promote deep relaxation and reflection
  • Time for solitude, napping and wandering … placing your phone on “Do Not Disturb”
  • Facilitated on private, waterfront land curated to be calm, soft and slow.
  • For only 9 people, ensuring spaciousness and individual attention.
  • Everything is arranged for you… nourishing food, drinks, bedding, facilities and facilitation.

Friday 2 pm to Sunday 4 pm with an option to stay until sunset.

$590 per person, by application only.

[5% of profits go to local wombat conservation and Gunai/Bunurong country projects & elders]

APPLICATIONS OPEN – 9 People Only

WHO IS IT FOR AND HOW DOES IT HELP ME?

Your nervous system has become fried… you endure restless nights and endure through the signs of burnout.

YOU’RE FEELING LOST IN YOUR OWN MIND

We are so caught up in our minds, that we have lost our senses;

Deep rest in a natural setting, moving out of our numbness, with bare feet and wide eyes allows our senses to return, and with that, the world makes more sense.

YOU HAVE NO TIME OR SPACE TO SIMPLY REST

It’s impossible to deeply rest in a distracted, fear-based world;

Distracted by negative news, screens with infinite options, relationship demands, never-ending to-do lists, the hamster wheel of maintaining a household… all within a “culture of doing”.

This completely fries our nervous system until we feel the skin crawl and sleepless nights of panic & overwhelm.

Without this distraction, you’ll remember what is truly important to you and where to devote your time.

YOU’VE GOT SCRAMBLED BRAINS – ALL NOISE, NO SIGNAL

You can’t listen to yourself when the world is screaming at you!

A noisy world deafens your presence to life, others and yourself… when you listen to the messages of your body and mind within a natural setting, things become very clear, very quickly.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

“Doing Nothing” aka, resting, being idle, reducing distractions and courting boredom… allows you to become more focussed, less erratic, increases creativity and allows you to self-guide your one precious life.

This is made easier in the wilderness, far away from the influences of culture, family and city life.

We explore unique (optional) ways to “do nothing” including:

  • Digital Detachment, Detox
  • Forest Wandering
  • Solo Sitting and Laying in Nature
  • Bathing – Jacuzzi and Cold Dip
  • Long Lunches and Afternoon Siesta Naps
  • Basic Breathing & Mindfulness
  • Sound & Rhythm Healing
  • Moving Meditation (Non-Linear Movement Method™)
  • Fire Making & Star Gazing
  • Sleep & Dream Preparation
  • Making Things with Natural Materials
  • Mushroom Extracts for Expansion and Relaxation (Lions Mane, Cordyceps & Reishi)
  • Gut Health assistance with Kombucha Vinegars from “Extremely Alive”

Join this small group and receive the healthy, nature-based reset and recharge that you need, and deserve.
