Enneagram retreat

Who Are You? Who Am I?

Kinder Respectful Relationships with the Enneagram

At this 3 day retreat, you will discover the answers through insightful exploration of the enneagram, as well as daily yoga & meditation.



I came to the Retreat to sit with some big decisions. I hoped to gain clarity and find some peace around my purpose and which way to move forward.

The experience and the insights I gained from the weekend has allowed me to discover an authentic sense of self. I can accept the way I feel, knowing I have the tools to choose how I respond. This means greater calm, clarity and purpose for me.

It was lovely to meet new people and share wonderful food during our meal breaks.

I don’t usually do yoga, but this yoga was different, more holistic and meditative…bringing me into the present.

Because of the design of the course, there is literally something for everyone to connect to, learn about themselves and grow from over this weekend.  Just do it!

What’s my potential?
Why do I sabotage myself?  What is my life’s purpose?
How can I create the changes that I dream of in myself and my life?
Why do others think, feel & behave so differently and how do I relate when we seem so different?

Millions of individuals are grappling with these questions, in the face of conflicting messages about who we should be, how to behave and what’s important in life, how do you decide what advice is best?

Turn UP Your Zen

At this 3 day retreat, you will discover the answers through wisdom of the body, mind and soul, with daily yoga, meditation, and insightful exploration of the enneagram.

The enneagram - meaning map of 9 - is a spiritual & psychological tool, that offers deep insight into personality, including our motivations, fears & defence mechanisms that often lay buried in the unconscious layers of our personality.

It helps you to understand why & how it is that you are as you are, supporting your mental, emotional and spiritual growth.

As you deepen your awareness of what drives you, so too you deepen your understanding of others, cultivating kinder, respectful relationships built on peaceful connection & belonging.

Turn UP Your Zen


I joined Tania’s Kinder Relationships workshop because I wanted to transition to a more balanced lifestyle for my long-term health. After attending the Kinder Relationships retreat, I feel empowered to make better choices. Tania gave me a workable framework to understand myself and achieve the best outcomes, without needing people around me to make that change. It has improved my confidence to start making relationship choices and I feel very lucky to have chanced upon this kind of guidance!

This event is due to be scheduled soon. Leave your name & email, so we can advise you when the dates are released.
