How to find your way even if you're struggling with feeling stuck


Want to come for $1000 off ticket price?

Details on how coming soon...

Can you hear it whispering? That quiet, inner voice that knows - there has got to be more to life than this...or maybe it’s roaring. The heart speaks in whispers until it goes unheard for too long. 

 

Perhaps you’re feeling that nagging sense of dissatisfaction and wondering ‘How did I get here? Why is it all so hard? Why hasn't it worked out yet?' Feeling stuck, tired, over it, held back, burnt out, overwhelmed by it all, no time to think, no time for self…

 

It's likely your self-care practices are sitting on the bottom rung of the endless list of things to do, something you’ll get to later. Yet later never seems to come.

 

When you’re not on the path that your heart longs for, sometimes it’s easier not to feel. Maybe you buffer or avoid those deep emotions with workaholism, distraction, and busyness. Or maybe it’s the latest Netflix series. Whatever it is, something in you yearns for more to life than this.

 

Your potential feels buried amongst all the things of day to day life.

 

You are not alone.

What if you had the opportunity to reimagine your life?


Sometimes all you need is the freedom to look at your current reality from a different perspective, to explore your endless possibilities from a refreshed vantage point.

 

Clarity unveils in the stillest places.

 

It’s time to STOP.  It’s time to ASK yourself:

  • How do you want to be?

  • Where do you want to be?

  • Who do you want to be?

It’s in this space of stillness that you come to nurture your authentic self, to discover your purpose, and to find your way.

 

The rest of your juicy life is patiently waiting for you.

 

Focus on you


This immersion is carefully crafted to support, nourish, and facilitate your re-emergence toward the life that you long to live.

 

You will come away feeling rested, rejuvenated, and equipped with the tools, techniques and strategies you need for ongoing healthy self-care and self-discovery. Through expertly curated workshop-style process, we support you to delve deeply and help you find answers to your big life questions. You will get clarity and start to imagine the possibility of living the life of your dreams – from a place of brimming fullness rather than running on empty.

 

Daily reflective self-enquiry workshops are blended with unique and powerful explorations of meditation and visualisation, deep introspection and connection processes, moon yoga, qigong, tantra, kundalini shake, Buteyko breathing, nutrition, nature, immersive relaxation, and traditional Balinese blessing and healing.

 

We are deeply passionate about self-care and this is reflected in the program all week long. This is an opportunity for you to slow right down. To rest and reconnect with yourself, feel a sense of rejuvenation, possibility, and a deep connection with what you want for yourself in this life.

 

Undoubtedly there will be tears shared as we release the old parts of ourselves. And we will have a lot of fun and laughter too!! All emotions are welcome here on the way to experiencing life to its fullest.

Daily Schedule


A daily schedule will run from early morning till evening and includes:

  • A morning wake-up movement and meditation on most mornings – exploring moon yoga, qigong, kundalini shake, game play, Buteyko breathing, guided meditation and visualisation.
  • Organic, healthy breakfast choices
  • Facilitated morning workshop
  • Lunch and Dinner
  • Afternoon to rest and explore the pool/spa/local area - there are beautiful spaces for silence, for walking in the tropical surrounds or local town, swimming, massage, spa treatments and resting. Recharge yourself with the abundant energy of nature.

    Our Location

    We have found a hidden gem to share with you amongst the tranquil gardens of Villa Beji Indah, a private escape in the uniquely beautiful village of Nyuh Kuning— a short walk from the center of Ubud.

     

    Beji Indah sprawls out amongst the banks of a narrow river gorge — a spacious, and quiet grounds with plenty of space for reflective, relaxation time, a 25m pool to cool down, and beautifully designed villas; each with their own unique features.

     

    With ten individually styled rooms set among a lush 1.8 hectars of forest land next to Ubud, this is the perfect place for our retreat.

     

    The stunning river Woz, 3 swimming pools and 7 ponds offer the sound of water throughout this nature resort. Two yoga shalas and 3 meditation pavilions offer the perfect space for rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit.

     

    Villa Beji Indah is a true retreat away from it all, and it is only a short stroll into a beautiful village with interesting shops and stunning organic and Balinese restaurants we will have time to explore together and on our own.

    Your Facilitators


    My name is Charmaine Dennis. I am the founding director of a wonderful natural medicine practice called Fertile Ground Health Group in Melbourne, Australia. I am also a naturopath, author, speaker, yoga teacher, meditator, facilitator, lover and mum.

     

    9 years ago, my busy, passionate life was turned upside down by a sudden diagnosis of cancer - acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Since my "all clear", I have had to work out how to re-engage with life and my work in a completely new way. Old habits do indeed die hard and it really is true - nothing changes if nothing changes. 

     

    I have been running immersions with naturopath Gill Stannard in Bali for burnt out health practitioners for the past 3 years, with people questioning why they are doing what they are doing, and discovering how to move forward in a more authentically connected way, with re-invigorated sense of purpose.

     

    I believe that taking time to slow right down is essential. We need space to reflect more deeply and ask the beautiful questions of ourselves and each other, to share experience and story and learn that we are not as alone as we can sometimes feel. We need space to really listen to our own inner wisdom and discover how we can align our lives to something more authentic and true for us. We need space to feel all the possibility of being alive.

     

    This work is a total joy for me, especially working alongside my partner Carly Woods. I am thrilled to share it with you.

     

    Contact me via charmaine@fertileground.com.au for any clarification, comments, or questions.

    My name is Carly Woods.  I’m a naturopath, buteyko breathing therapist, speaker, facilitator, bodyworker, surfer, seeker, and wild living-room dancer. I lovingly refer to myself as a ‘practopath’ because I believe that practical, fun, simple and powerful actions are the best ways towards the results we want in our lives.

     

    For the majority of my adult existence I struggled with daily anxiety, panic attacks and overwhelm. This affected my ability to socialise, my confidence in jobs, compromised my personal relationships, and was a giant flashing obstacle that trickled toxic tendrils of restriction into my life until I felt suffocated enough to take some serious brain and breath retraining action.

     

    Since then, I have maintained a passionate course on the curiosity train for self-development and I LOVE sharing what I have found with others.  Over the last couple of years I’ve facilitated multiple immersive workshops in Byron Bay, Sydney, and Melbourne, spoken at the 11th Herbal and Naturopathic International Conference 2019, and am currently amidst creating books and meditation courses for your ultimate nervous system balancing delight. 

     

    It is my absolute pleasure to help you achieve resounding wellbeing alongside my wonderful partner Charmaine.

    Important Considerations


    • Bring Your Loved One

      Please feel welcome to bring a partner or friend with you if you wish to take part in the program together. It is important that you are both fully committed to the process. Each day builds on the one before, so it is ideal to show up fully present to all of the workshops on offer. There will be plenty of down-time outside of the group schedule for relaxing together and with your new friends, or taking space and enjoying the best that Bali has to offer.

    • Share Or Take Your Space

      Rooms are spacious and there is plenty of shared spaces around the villas so it will be fine to share with a friend or another active participant. There is also the option to have solo room occupancy if you prefer your privacy. Sign up for what you need. All rooms can be twin or king configuration - your choice. If you choose a shared room without bringing a friend then it will be based on availability - if there is no-one to share with you then your accommodation will be the private price.

    • Healthy Food

      The onsite restaurant supports us all to eat healthily as we sample a variety of fresh juices and three delicious meals each day. Mainly plant-based, local organic whole food is served to support your body and overall well-being. Alcohol and extra food can be charged to your room (but really, it's all so abundantly laid on you likely won't feel you need it).

    • Ups And Downs In Bali

      Please consider your mobility – there are many steps in Bali, and our venue and excursions are not very friendly if you have special mobility needs. Yoga and movement meditations are gentle and adaptable to the needs of the group in the moment. You are welcome to email us to discuss any concerns before you apply.

    • Things To Organise

      You will need to organise your own flights, transport to the venue (we can help!) and travel and event cancellation insurance, as well as your passport (with more than 6 months to expiry). If you are Australian, you do not need a visa for a stay less than 30 days.  Everything else is taken care of for you from arrival at Surya Kembar until the end of our time together.

    • Healthy To Travel?

      If you have any health requirements, are recovering from cancer treatment, or are personally struggling with mental health challenges please contact us before you book in to make sure this is suitable for you via charmaine@fertileground.com.au.

       

      Please know we are not psychologists and can only work within our skill set. There are 3 well-regarded international hospitals in Bali. It may be useful for you to bring a letter outlining your medical history and current treatment. You will be extremely well taken care of however your health is always your responsibility.  

    • Vulnerability

      This space offers and encourages vulnerability and a place to be seen and witnessed. We ask participants to speak from their experience rather than give advice to others. Come with an open mind, be present and responsible for your own needs and self-care. Please be understanding and respectful of the needs of others.

    We feel privileged to welcome you to Find Your Way 2020 in Bali. 

    Spaces are limited so get your application in ASAP.

    EVENT GALLERY


    A little teaser for you....

    I can say from my own experience of attending one of Charmaine’s immersions... there were so so many defining moments and so much space to Be simply present. When we are given the space to just Bathe and Be in the perfectness that we are, there is the opportunity for so much peace.

    Chris Carley, 2017 Bali Participant


    You are lucky to be taught by Carly and experience her uplifting energy, empathy and passion.

    Mim Beim, Naturopath & Buteyko Breathing Educator


    I'm so thrilled Charmaine is doing this. I know it's her heart-work. I loved attending the practitioner immersion in Bali and I'm sure this will also be an amazing soul-enriching experience for all who attend.

    Liza Oats, 2019 Bali Participant


    Carly shares her knowledge generously, clearly, honestly and precisely. It’s all woven in her own fun quirky style.  Carly is a gem and I would recommend her for assisting your journey, from children to elders alike.

    Mel, Business Owner - Byron Bay


    This immersion is going to be so very special. Charmaine is so very gifted at running workshops .. I can’t recommend highly enough .. 🤗❤️

    Sarah Goldberg, 2017 Bali Participant


    Through using just some of the many simple techniques Carly taught us in the workshop, I wake more refreshed, with more energy and clarity, and I have been able to prevent the development of a panic attack on a couple of occasions. The workshop imparted so much practical information without ever being overwhelming. There was a great balance of theory and practical exercises, to keep us engaged and understand why we were doing each technique. I would recommend this class to anyone.

    Jessie, Naturopath - Byron Bay


    The immersion experience with Charmaine played a big part in the giant steps happening in my life right now. She is a sincerely inspired person that I would recommend you invest in if you want to jump into your full potential.

    Suzanne Hurley, 2018 Bali Participant


    Carly is a consummate professional in helping others to breathe functionally.
