Retreats are one of the highlights of our calendar year – the chance to spend time with like-minded people and totally engage and immerse ourselves in wellness away from the stresses and distractions of busy schedules.
Take a look at our upcoming retreats here. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please contact us.
If you are looking to organise a retreat, or if you are interested in a collaboration with A Gracious Life, we are also interested to hear from you.
Step into a world of transformation and rejuvenation on the beautiful island of Bali with me, for the exclusive ‘The Way of Five Elements Retreat’ from October 7-12, 2023. Together we will embark on a six-day journey of self-discovery and healing. A journey that would allow you to discover and embrace the practical tools and techniques needed to address real-life health and wellbeing challenges. Our program is inspired by a holistic approach that will leave you feeling refreshed, revitalized, and equipped with practical skills to better understand and appreciate your true self.
Retreat Options and Information
A Gracious Life Annual Retreat
Our annual A Gracious Life Retreat is held at a different location each year, which we carefully select to allow participants to fully connect and engage with nature and each other.
Retreat schedules combine a variety of essential oil workshops and wellness modalities from Qi-gong, yoga and meditation through to optional activities to join a traditional Balinese blessing ceremony or explore the natural beauty of the location. Whether it’s snorkelling the coral reefs of Nusa Lembongan Island, trekking through the rainforest or discovering one of Bali’s hidden waterfalls, there are always options for everyone to enjoy.
At every retreat we aim to provide a range of workshops that are educational, practical, engaging and fun. Some of our favourite essential oil workshops have included:
Ditch and Switch: How to ditch chemical household products and switch to toxic-free alternatives
Create Your Own Signature Scent: Create a scent that is completely unique to you and take the recipe (and your scent) home with you.

As well as our annual AGL retreat we host and collaborate in a number of other retreats throughout the year. These retreats tend to have a more specific wellness focus but there is usually always time for exploring the region, supplementary workshops and optional activities. These workshops are a wonderful way to immerse yourself in a specific modality in the most conducive environment imaginable.
Joining a retreat of any kind is a spiritually enriching experience and you’ll come away with a greater understanding of yourself, of others and of the world around you. Retreats are an opportunity to become completely grounded and re-centred – for most participants, retreats are life changing experiences.

Five Senses of Wellness Retreat
At Raffles Bali
It has been such a pleasure to craft this program, work with an amazing team, bringing in experts in the wellness field, and create customized retreat amenities to complement every individual on their journey. As a clinical aromatherapist, I loved creating 3 essential oil blends that are unique to this retreat. The first is designed to be uplifting, the second is a divine relaxing blend, and the third has been created to enhance the immune system. It was also a delight to teach a Qi Gong practice to the guests, many who have never experienced energy work like this before. Creating this bespoke wellness retreat and sharing the many life-changing practices has brought me ultimate joy and reinforced my belief in the body’s innate healing abilities.
