Wholehearted Mindfulness Retreat hosted by

A heart centred retreat of self care and playful discovery for women using a combination of the sciences and the spiritual. October 3rd to 7th 2016

Come if you want to:

  • disconnect from the constant juggling act of life and hit pause/reset

  • amplify the song in your heart.

  • dive into your being and understand yourself at a deeper level.

  • learn ways to bring your wholehearted self into everyday life

  • stretch out your body with some amazing yoga practice

  • block out the noise to listen to your mind and be heard

  • experience different types of mindfulness

  • stand strong in your sacred ground

  • give yourself the treasure of me-time in a magical location

At the end of the 4 days, you will float away feeling refreshed, fueled with positive energy, sparkling with your inner truth and radiating calm as a balanced babe with a renewed sense of purpose about your life along with the tools to make it happen.

Your heartfelt package includes:

You will be taken care of in peaceful and divine accommodation for 4 nights with breakfast included and receive a goodie bag upon arrival (because you are worth that self care). Experience all the teachings, meditations and daily yoga throughout the retreat. Have lunch with your soul sisters every day wherever you want or explore the island as the afternoons are all for you. You can relax, rejuvenate and reconnect with your whole heart. During your stay, you can also take advantage of one therapeutic massage and one individual 1-1 coaching session.

Travel will be booked using our personal travel manager and you will be delivered to the shala with peace of mind.

The Care Factor also takes care of people where it goes and will be donating from the proceeds to Jodie O’Shea Home For Children in Bali.

This Wholehearted Experience Is Led & Facilitated by Shannon of The Care Factor

Shannon Young is the Care Factor Coach who wants to banish apathy from the world. She wants people to live expressing their whole heart and that starts with each person practicing sacred self care. Highlights of her everyday life are me-time, volunteer teaching primary school kids about ethics; spontaneous dance parties by herself or with her kids, walking her dog – Izzy, and hugs.

She's been a Executive Coach for over 15 years and thousands of people have attended her workshops to understand themselves, their teams or their organisation. She is not a stuffy Executive Coach, she facilitates highly engaging blended-learning programs and loves to get people on their feet. Her workshops combine the science and the spiritual to foster a unique learning experience where self care is central to growth. For only when we truly value and care for ourselves, can we truly care for others.


Her philosophy that guides her workshops is this:

  • When people care about what they do, they have a purpose. 

  • When people care about those they work with, there is teamwork. 

  • When people care about themselves, there is self awareness and hope.
