One of the MANY reasons why I’ve been inspired to host this retreat is to invite like-minded souls who are ready to take a break from their environment and their comfort zone, so that they can be held in a deep, safe and reverent space during the shedding of old beliefs, integration of new activations and soulful rest of their tired and weary souls.
This time of the year is also when our well-intentioned New Years Resolutions have fallen by the wayside and reality has set in regarding where our energy is at for the new year. We’re often surprised at how bloody exhausted we really are.
That’s when I come in and invite you to join me for an opportunity to release what you no longer need as the long summer days slowly start to wane, and your energy slowly reclines inward for some deep introspection.
One of the philosophies that I use in my workshops and on the healing journeys that I embark on with my clients is the importance of clearing, aligning and then expanding.
In order for this to occur in a way that can facilitate a deep transformation, we must first move away from our comfort zone and habitual processes that can sometimes enable unconscious patterns to remain fixed and stunt our growth.
This will then give us an opportunity to find clarity about the things we need to clear mentally and emotionally, as well as the space to align with our vision for what we want to see blossom in our lives. Once we fine-tune the integration process, we can then embody this into our psyche and expand our soul’s potential.
Come join me, Patty Kikos, for a restful, releasing & restorative retreat set in the beautiful Kenthurst countryside. Swami’s retreat centre is situated on 60 acres of tranquil bushland a mere 55 minutes away from the centre of Sydney.
The retreat facilities include a range of single and shared rooms, a (non-heated) swimming pool, spa, sauna, tennis court, gym and walking trails through the surrounding natural bush. There is a fully dedicated and equipped yoga studio with a wood fireplace.
Using ancient tools and nature we will prepare our minds and bodies for releasing anything that is holding our spirit back from being aligned from walking our true path so that we can delve deeper into our own personal soul alignment.
We will clear tension and stress from our physical vessel through the sacred practices of kundalini yoga, breath work designed to facilitate a rebirth, powerful energy healing transmissions, as well as gong healings and yoga nidra so that you can reconnect to your body, mind, and spirit.

I am so grateful for having attended Patty’s retreat. She is the most beautiful soul who has gently and lovingly pushed me to be the best version of myself. She invites each of us to transform old stories and behaviour patterns in a beautiful and comfortable way. Patty facilitates each kundalini sequence, meditation and journey with compassion and laughter, and her incredible intuition means that she knows what each of us needs better than we know ourselves. I left the retreat feeling so much lighter and happier, and I cannot wait for the next one! She is a truly gifted healer and I absolutely recommend her work to everyone!

Patty’s retreat was a much need break from everything that has been going on in life. It was a magical space with beautiful like minded souls – where everyone was so different and yet connected on a spiritual level. Patty’s special energy penetrated the space in a way that everyone at the retreat was able to feel safe, discover and receive what ever they needed to experience. The retreat was a perfect combination of relaxation, kundalini yoga, healing and meditation, alone time and fun time together. I would attend Patty’s retreat again in heart beat. Many blessing and lots of gratitude to her for holding the space for us!
I isolated myself from the world for many years due to suffering from despair. I was in company of group of amazing people, I’m in awe of what I’ve just witnessed, I am in awe of the power of this circle, when a group of people come together in trust, what a miraculous healing it was for me. I feel your heartbeat I feel every single one of you, if I close my eyes I see ever one of you, I’m still in that circle.. when I heard patty was having a retreat I just went head first I knew it was my time. I knew it was time to get out of my comfort zone. I didn’t know who I was going to meet what I was going to see or anything it was my first retreat. To achieve this, Patty has s huge heart such a pure heart to hold space for so many people and to witness this healing and impact that this retreat had on so many people…can’t wait for out next one!
Thank you for your wonderful, wonderful weekend. Hands down the best retreat weekend I have ever been on. You were the reason the group was so amazing. Look at the people you attract! I still feel shifted, and continue to shift daily. Your insights and safe foundation were what I needed to trust you to lead me to change. I always love your company. I can’t think of anything I would change for next year. I think it was a great time set aside for the retreat as it’s always good to leave wanting more! I also think being so close, yet feeling far away from Sydney was a perfect combo. Thank you so much again for giving you and your authenticity. I feel really privileged to have been part of that group in retreat!
Patty’s retreat is by far one of the most profound experiences of my life. Her deep understanding of Kundalini Yoga, coupled with her passion to help others has enabled me to move forward in my life with positivity and strength to becoming the person I truly want to be this lifetime. Patty is a truly amazing soul who will transform your life.
