Shelley Eyesis Cochrane

Retreat Founder/Creator,

Organic Gardener and Chef 

Shelley journeyed through her childhood feeling unseen and misunderstood. Being invisible became her safe place.  However, she felt a deep inner conflict between the desire to be truly seen and the anxiety visibility brought upon her.

Finding the tools to resolve this inner conflict, to express herself and be seen, became her life’s quest.

At the age of 27, while sat under a tree in her permaculture paradise, Shelley had a powerful realisation―she realised that fear and excitement were the same energy and that she had the power to bring what was hidden into light.  Casting off the veil of invisibility, she stopped hiding and determined to illuminate from within.

On a deeper level, Shelly realised that her garden had facilitated this learning. She had created it and it (in turn) had created her.


She now teaches others how to connect with their innate inner power and creative abilities through the language of  alchemy, nature and plants, empowering them to connect to their inner landscapes.


Nita McIntyre

Intuitive Counsellor, Women's Sacred Circle and Blessing Way Facilitator

Nita lacked confidence as a child, struggled to form meaningful friendships and, as a consequence, felt lonely and left out.

After becoming a mother at 29, Nita found connection with other women though baby circles, hearing and sharing with other mothers in an intimate and authentic way that she hadn’t experienced before.

She felt empowered by sisterhood and inspired to hold a sacred space to support women in their growth.

Nita guides circles of women, through self-reflection, connection and revelation. By creating a nurturing environment that fosters self-love, connection with other women, she empowers women to feel seen, heard and valued.

Jo Horigan

Yin, Restorative and Vinyasa Flow Yoga Instructor, Bush Walker and Nature Lover

Jo grew up in happy and safe home, but she felt plain and was a bit of a follower. Lack of challenge had left her lack-lustre and she was driven to be more.

When she was 27 she took off to the NT for new adventures and found a deep spiritual connection with the land, culture and nature.

She started to grow into her true self and remembers lying on the rocks at Ubirr feeling at home in herself for the first time. Through adventure and challenge she grew to be who she wanted to be.

Jo teaches an authentic yoga, creating a space of gentleness, harmony and reflection, where people are free to sit with hearts and be themselves.


Sharon Groves

Somatic Practitioner

Sharon felt fearful and alone through much childhood and closed her heart, becoming guarded and defensive as a protective mechanism.

Unable to maintain loving relationships, much of her adult life was spent feeling confused, unloved, and unable to change.

After going through yet another toxic and broken relationship as an adult, she knew it was time to finally do the deep work required to fully heal her trauma and reignite her capability for intimacy.  Working with body psychotherapy, Sharon transformed and released the grief and fear held by her body while increasing her levels of vitality, opening herself to love, intimacy and pleasure in new ways. And after several years of commitment to healing, she has slowly mended her broken heart.

She now works to stop the cycle of trauma continuing, by raising her children in an environment of love and acceptance and by teaching others how to overcome and heal trauma.

The results are the expression of a full range of feelings, increased authenticity and the return of joy and pleasure to life.

Jakkie Talmage

MindBody Coach, Teacher & Healer. The founder of MindBody Courses and author of Your MindBody Journey

Being raised by perfectionist parents, Jakkie never felt she was good enough. Her mission was to “achieve” and become “successful” at all costs, that way she would get the approval she craved. 


It wasn’t until she reached the top of her career as Art Editor for London’s leading natural health magazine that she realised it was all fake. 

Jakkie then rewired the part of her unconscious mind that believed that she had to be perfect to be loved and accepted, her true path found her. 


Jakkie became a yoga teacher and therapist and  worked with hundreds of bodies over many years, Jakkie began to notice a pattern emerge.

 Clients came with similar physical symptoms to other clients who also had the same psycho-emotional issues.

In 2008 she set up MindBody Courses, which was designed to educate people about their MindBody Connection, their body wisdom and the power of their unconscious mind and how it runs their life. 

Amy Stuth

In a moment of revelation when she was listening to a self development and personal growth guru. Amy discovered she is not her thoughts, this gave her the confidence to speak without fear. 


Now, through living the radical potential of her own epiphany, Amy empowers others to speak and live their truth to have a prosperous and joyful life.
