19 – 22 May 2022
Gold Coast Hinterland
The moment you step through the door of your Hinterland Retreat, you’ll feel a comforting wave of relaxation wash over you.
You’ll pause and take a deep breath, and you’ll feel ever so grateful that you said yes and allowed yourself to be here. Instantly, your racing mind will start to calm and all you’ll be aware of is the atmosphere of peace and tranquility that welcomes you…
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being truly nourished and cared for. As women, our daily lives are so often about giving to others, supporting others and making sure other people’s needs are being met.
On retreat, all you need to do is arrive. The rest is taken care for you. In a space that feels safe and homely, you have the opportunity to simply let go.
With no to-do lists and no-one else to focus on, you can relax, unwind and allow yourself to open up to new insights and experiences.
Reconnecting with yourself, to your dreams and goals, to your heart’s deepest longings, to your intuition, to your soul again, is deeply nourishing. It’s exciting.
The fatigue that comes with the humdrum of daily life is replaced with infinite possibilities and a sense of vibrancy that you had forgotten even existed within you.
Oftentimes we can feel like we’re walking through a haze, or wading through murky waters. Days start to roll into one another like Groundhog Day. Yet with time and space, clarity starts to appear immediately. It’s simple to recall what is truly important to you. Your dreams, passions, needs and desires awaken within you again and you can see your path ahead so clearly.
When was the last time you felt the beat of your heart? Listened to the quiet whispers of your soul? Or felt that overwhelming sense of euphoria for what’s around the next corner?
This retreat is your opportunity to press pause on life for a while. When you stop and become mindful and present, you gain deep insights into who you really are, who you want to be and how you want to show up for yourself.
How would if feel to have a calm mind, free from mental clutter?
Your retreat experience will help you redefine your relationship with being ‘busy’ and help you reduce the stress and overwhelm that pervades your life. With simple tools, you’ll gain greater clarity, focus, peace and balance. You’ll be able to let things go without over analysing and know how to ground yourself before anxiety takes over.
Would you love to feel empowered so that aligning your decisions with your values comes easily?
Your retreat experience gives you the time and space you need to explore your inner-most passions and desires. Through beautiful rituals and experiences, you will rediscover the very essence of who you are. From this place of clarity and power, you can welcome joy back into your life and return home as the best version of you.
What if you could learn the true meaning of self-love? Do you yearn to rediscover your passion and purpose outside of the roles you play at work and at home?
Learn tools to make this a reality. Through self-reflection activities and guided meditations, you will be able to see yourself and your life in a beautiful new way. You’ll understand that filling up your own cup isn’t something that you ever need to feel guilty about.
By the end of our few days together, you’ll return home glowing, radiating, fully rejuvenated, empowered and connected to your inner light, passion and purpose and excited for what’s to come next.

MEET YOUR TEAM
Katrina is the Founder of Hart Retreats, a mindfulness teacher, health coach and she is passionate about helping women reconnect with themselves and live life with passion and intention.
Katrina spent the best part of the last 20 years working her way up the corporate ladder and achieving great success in the process. However, that success came at a price – it cost her wellbeing. Katrina was addicted to her busy career-focused life and she was losing a part of herself that she cherished. She knew she needed to find a way to slow down, to find inner fulfilment and to reconnect to the fun and happy version of herself.
At the age of 32, Katrina was diagnosed with breast cancer and so began a lifelong discovery of herself and what it meant to be healthy. Not just in the physical sense, but rather a holistic view of health, incorporating the mental, emotional and spiritual side of health too.
However, Katrina’s diagnosis didn’t stop her pursuit of promotions and perfectionism. Add motherhood to the mix and the juggle became overwhelming. Her fear of failure and not being ‘good enough’ was almost debilitating. It led her to the point where she’d lost her identity and the sparkle for a life she once loved.
In 2017, at the age of 40, and just before the birth of her second child, Katrina decided to train as a health and wellness coach, primarily as an opportunity to improve her overall wellbeing. That path led her to also become a mindfulness teacher. After sitting with dozens of women who were all experiencing incredible amounts of stress, overwhelm and anxiety, it became very clear that so many women were longing for a way to create a sustainable way of life, particularly after having children.
Katrina knew that she needed to create a healing and nurturing space where women could come and reconnect to what’s important to them. To have space to think about themselves and their own wellbeing so that they could effortlessly thrive in all areas of life and transform into the best version of themselves.
In 2019, Hart Retreats was born and over the last couple of years over 250 women have joined Katrina on retreat.
“Something beautiful happens when women come together. So much healing can happen in a short space of time, and I have witnessed incredible breakthroughs and transformations that only a retreat journey offers.
I believe it’s through stillness, and a state of being rather than doing, that we can find clarity and gain a greater understanding of who we truly are. And then, anything is possible”.

WHAT WOMEN HAVE SAID ABOUT THEIR RETREAT EXPERIENCE
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing experience. Every part of it was perfect and I left feeling so refreshed and reset. I hope you can do some more of these wonderful experiences next year as I have many friends who would love to experience it also.
I got far more from my retreat experience then I ever thought could be possible. I stopped and put my phone down. I learnt valuable skills to help calm my mind and there are so many tips that I will be taking back to my home life, just small changes that I can make on a day to day basis for me, my family and learning how to prioritise things a bit better and just to be an all round calm, more relaxed, mindful person. I’m really excited to go back and start implementing these things day to day.
