About The Event
A 5 day respite retreat for the partners of incapacitated veterans. Thus retreat will be very different in that we are unsure at this stage what therapies we can bring into the resort. There will be a much stronger focus on crafts and hobbies, a great opportunity to learn something new. IF you sew bring your machine. We will have various projects to participate in. During the retreat you might experience various forms of relaxation, and therapies to assist you cope with life caring for an ill or injured loved one. These may include healing sound showers, laughing yoga, e-motion yoga, trauma recovery exercises, belly dancing, pole dancing, beach walks, Glamour Photo shoots, games and lots of laughter. We also have an information day where we have representatives from various groups including RSL QLD and DVA join us for some information sharing.
