Mental Health Retreat

:Rethinking the imprints from our mothers, fathers and culture

mental health retreat

As the field of psychology has deepened over the last century, it has found that one of the major causes of mental health issues stem from our childhoods and our family of origin.

Having overvalued the yang or masculine qualities of personal identity and accomplishment many people today wrestle with the shame of failure, or not measuring up to an image of success and strength. Increasing work demands have put pressure on providing time for self-care and relationships.

While individuality has its place, our lives are ultimately enhanced by the yin or feminine domains such as relationships, love, acceptance and having an inner life as well as outer identity. Many mothers have wrestled with guilt when it comes to attempting to be a perfect mother while juggling work and other obligations.

Both our fathers and mothers have been muddied by this cultural legacy. A lack of integration within parents has seen the rise of absent or neglectful fathers as well as devouring or martyring mothers. 

Carl Jung felt that fully actualised adults breed functional children, saying:

“Beyond the human obligation to look after ageing parents and to maintain a friendly relation with them, there should be no other dependencies, for the young generation has to start life anew and can encumber itself with the past only in case of the greatest necessity.”

In his own life, Jung was expected to carry on his paternal lineage of entering the clergy. Through the feminine, or soul realm, he heeded a dream where he witnessed a giant excrement collapse through a church roof. He took it to mean that formal religion would be a stagnant career choice and so he forged his own path, pioneering a soulcentric form of psychology.

Rather than tend to the symptoms, our mental health retreats explore the root causes of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and other debilitating emotions. Healing your imprints, is a program that explores and excavates your beliefs and the behaviours they manifest as.

For a more experiential healing retreat, you might be interested in this retreat we offer.

Alternatively, we can custom design a program that blends the two approaches. 

Counselling, family constellations, theta healing, archetypal psychology and many other holistic therapies are available during your time with us.

Healing Our Imprints

Program Outline:

Day 1 

Morning Session & Mid Morning Session

These sessions will focus on the mother wound, looking at your relationship with your mother, the maternal family lineage and the impact of cultural influences effecting and impeding you from having a healthy relationship with the feminine and forming high functioning relationships.

Lunch

Afternoon Session 

This theta healing session helps to cultivate a balanced theta state, similar to meditation, connecting you with your higher self to explore your beliefs and attitudes.

It involves scanning your body to identify blocks in the mind, emotions and physical body. Upon locating any ill health or negative beliefs, together we will replace these with life-affirming and empowering ones.

Mid Afternoon Session

Depending on what has come up for you or what your preference is, the final session on day one will incorporate a tarot reading or energy healing.

Should the weather and your energy levels be accomodating, you can use this time to take in a nearby bushwalk to our local waterfall. Alternatively, you might  indulge in some art activities or enjoy one of the more physical activities we host (mountain biking / stand up paddleboarding).

Dinner (or the option for you to take in one of the local dining facilities)

Optional evening activities 

Day 2

Morning Session & Mid Morning Session

These sessions will focus on the father wound, looking at your relationship with your father, the paternal family lineage and the impact of cultural influences effecting and impeding you from having a healthy relationship with the masculine and finding a clear sense of direction and purpose in life.

Lunch

Afternoon Session

You will explore imprints from your soul blueprint, which reveal woundings you've come to heal in this lifetime and the giftings you have come to impart on the world.
