CYCLE LOVE

A WEEKEND RETREAT
FOR AWAKENING WOMEN

With Claire Baker

Friday 25th - Monday 28th May 2018
in Victoria, Australia

I am thrilled to finally offer my beloved Australian community an opportunity to deep-dive into Cycle Love, together.



The 2018 Cycle Love Retreat in Daylesford, Victoria, is an opportunity for awakening women to immerse themselves in the sacred, transformative, and nourishing teachings of the menstrual cycle. 


The crimson tides are turning on how we approach and revere a woman's cycle — I know you’ve felt it! — and this retreat is an invitation to powerfully deepen your understanding of your own cycle to better harness its power in your life as a woman who honours her cycle, and to contribute to the shifting shape of cycle awareness in the modern world.?

?

The Cycle Love Retreat is my most in-depth teaching on a woman's cycle. 


?This is the culmination of years of personal healing, coaching and teaching globally, and undertaking professional training in the world of menstruality; most recently being mentored by those revolutionising this discipline in the UK. 


Nestled in the foothills of Victoria’s spa country and housed in one of Daylesford's most grand and luxurious homes, you’ll feast on organic fare, sit and be heard in circle by other women, and begin the next chapter in your journey of wellbeing, wisdom, creativity, and womanhood. 


We'll be surrounded by acres of lush garden and natural areas to walk and explore, and you'll be given space and time to reconnect with yourself through yoga, meditation, dance, creative exercises, and of course — the teachings.

 

  • 3 nights of accommodation in gorgeous Daylesford, VIC.
  • 3 days of comprehensive cycle teachings led by Claire Baker.
  • Guided yoga each morning.
  • 3 delicious vegetarian meals each day, plus snacks (and of course, chocolate!)
  • 1 x 60-minute integration coaching session with Claire post-retreat.
  • 6 week listening partnership for support & connection.
  • Welcome Pack with preparation for the retreat.
  • Extra goodies & cycle-loving gifts!

Claire has gone out into the world to learn through experience, what works and why. Because of this, she’s been able to remove the guess factor for those on their own wellness journey. You and your Adore Your Cycle work are a blessing to the wellness industry, Claire.


— DR. NATALIE KRINGOUDIS

Claire's work has taught me how to embrace my cycle and support myself through each season, rather than being at war with my femininity and my body.


— CONNIE CHAPMAN 

What I love about working with Claire, is her raw honest approach, no bullshit and massive injection of positivity.  She holds a sacred space where I can talk about anything and everything.  Nothing is off limits.  


— BEC DJORDJEVIC


Claire holds an incredibly safe space for you to explore how you want your life to feel. I feel ridiculously lucky to have been mentored by her & couldn't recommend her more highly to others. I feel completely 'in the flow'!

Questions?

Does this retreat apply to women who don't have a menstrual cycle? ie. pregnant, breastfeeding, post-menopausal, trans women, someone who has had a hysterectomy, or is experiencing amenorrhea?

 

This retreat is for women, and anyone who identifies as a woman. I highly value inclusivity, and am learning more everyday about how I can be more conscious and inclusive of others in this work.


The content of the teachings is grounded in menstruality, and therefore an experience of a menstrual cycle (present or past) will help with integration of the work, however it is not a prerequisite. Naturally if you are no longer cycling, or will not experience a natural cycle again, the content may not apply to you as an individual, but rather in your sharing of this work with others in your life. Uterus or not, if you have a calling in your heart to to elevate the world's consciousness of the menstrual cycle, you will find value in this retreat. 


 

Will you be offering day spots for the retreat? Can I stay elsewhere and attend the teachings on the day?

 

The nature of this work requires a safely held space where true creativity, connection and collaboration can really run wild! I've therefore made the decision to contain the retreat as accommodation only, so there won't be day passes available. 


Will you be running this retreat again?

?

Cycle Love in Daylesford will be the only retreat I hold in Australia in 2018. As I'm currently residing in the UK, no other workshops or circles are confirmed for Australia at this stage. Please enter your email below to be the first to hear of any upcoming global dates.


I have a personal question, can I email you privately?
