Our Australian UGWA 2021 Retreat Program

It is an absolute pleasure to gather keynote speakers, workshop facilitators from Australia to provide you with an exceptional retreat experience.

(and now that we are in November we hope that some of our international team will be also joining us)

With an array of options, you will walk away having


that totally suits you...

On arrival

Whether you are coming by car, bus, or speedboat on arrival at reception you will receive your room keys, welcome gifts and some information about the rest of the day. Arrivals will begin at about 11.00am but generally, you won't be able to get into your rooms until about 2.00pm. This gives you some time to relax, have some lunch or begin to explore Lorne. You can purchase an extra night or two at The Mantra pre-UGWA so you are all settled for Saturday.


 Beginning With Our Opening Ceremony


To open UGWA 2021 you will be welcomed by local Indigenous community members from the Eastern Maar tribe, traditional owners of the land that we are on. They will immerse us with local Dreamtime stories through dance and a Smoking Ceremony.

You will meet the women who have put UGWA together and get to know what to expect during your time with us before a welcome dinner and drinks.

During dinner we will hear from our opening Keynote speaker Claire Beattie an Indigenous Woman that is a change maker of her community.

During Your Week Away

Over the 7 days, there will be a program of keynote speakers, workshops, free time, yoga classes, sound healing, an opportunity for spa treatments, cultural excursions & so much more...


This really is a choose your own adventure!


You will be able to choose your workshops, reserve places for 1:1 sessions, and workout when you would like your massage at the spa. 

We have some extra special Boutique Experience tickets this year which allows you to attend a little or a lot - or even virtually.

Take a look at them HERE

Mornings, Afternoons & Evenings

To keep the schedule as simple as possible we have divided the program into morning, afternoon & evening sessions. It really is up to you how many or how few you attend.

Healing Hub & Spa

The Healing Hub is a space to go and relax and rejuvenate with some of the specialized healers and practitioners that we have joining us.

These coupled with the established spa treatments means nothing but bliss, and next door to The Mantra is some saltwater swimming pools and salt rooms that you can also use your vouchers at.

Ultimate Sister Circles

During UGWA on most days, you will meet before lunch with the other members of your Ultimate Sister Circle to talk about everything that you have been doing, learning and been inspired by.

Relaxing, evenings sitting on the beach, or getting an early night is fine...but if you are a night owl then we have some things planned to keep you entertained...just take a look at the program below.
