We held our retreat for young women on Tuesday 1 November and it was a powerful day! There was relaxation, release, inspiration, pampering and fun. The level of engagement in the women-only held space was phenomenal and tears flowed, deep insights were shared and beautiful gratitude expressed in the closing circle. We acknowledge the courage shown by the young women who joined us for something that was completely unknown to them.

We were a huge group, with 35 young women, 15 support workers representing 10 support services across Brisbane and our tribe of Joining Hands GiveBack Ambassadors.

We were fortunate to have a big, beautiful space thanks to the support of Vulcana Women’s Circus where there was plenty of room for everything we had in store. Over the course of the day, there was hula hoop workshops, inspiring talks, beautiful meditations and yoga, dance, massages, facials and food.

Thanks to Vulcana Women’s Circus for the use of the beautiful space and the fabulous hoola hooping workshop.

And big love and thanks to our amazing tribe of GiveBack Ambassadors who gifted their skills, experience, stories and goodies to make the day so special:
