What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Much of who we are, lives below the surface of our day to day lives.  Making time to access this inner world is profoundly nourishing. Good food for our hungry souls.When we shine light on our essential feelings and personal truths, we can begin to uncover and align with our purpose of being. This investigation is intimate, intuitive and mysterious; an exquisite meeting between our dark depths and most beautiful luminous self.Winter is an ideal time to take this journey within…On the dance floor, we’ll be shedding skins, unravelling to our core then dropping into the sweet balm of meditation in motion, stillness and silence.  In the evenings, we’ll nourish ourselves with winter treats – live dance music, wholesome delicious food, campfire singing, a night soak in a hot tub and a magical fire ceremony. We’ll welcome our last day together with a sunrise walk in the bush. Set in the beautiful historic town of Castlemaine, surrounded by nature, Exquisite Darkness will be a nourishing Winter weekend of treats.

Meredith’s dedication, passion and welcoming, enticing style is quite simply an invitation into the healing power of movement.
