Two nights accommodation in the beautiful 1920s Continental House Hepburn Springs, Victoria facilitated in gratitude by Marye O’Brien (limited places available)


Marye shares her unique ability to hold sacred space in such a deep and loving way that people feel safe enough to be vulnerable and let go of that which holds them back.


MARYE O'BRIEN, your facilitator

Marye O'Brien is an Ayurvedic practitioner, an intuitive energy and sound healer. Her work is motivated by her deep desire for a world where all beings feel safe, loved and nourished. Although Marye spent many years in the corporate world, she feels that the road to nourishment is not these external avenues but rather an inward one, a journey to the soul. Her son’s stillbirth and subsequent health crisis launched her onto a healing path that has given her insight and wisdom that she shares with a healing kindness. Her gentle but warrior spirit is bringing forth the message that we are divine energy beings with the ability to create and transform our reality.

TESTIMONY from July 2019 retreat participant:

I’m not sure I can find the words to explain the magic of Marye’s “Return to Wholeness” retreat that I was fortunate to be a part of this weekend.
We gathered at the beautiful Continental House where Marye held a sacred and nurturing space for us to share, learn, grow and heal.
Yoga, meditation, sound baths, Ayurvedic treatments, a food as medicine workshop, sharing circles, rest, grounding, connection. We were nourished amongst nature in body, mind and spirit.

Thank you Marye for gifting us this space, this time and touching our lives in the most transformative way. - Carmen, Glenlyon
