  • Little reminder for you Remember that protein comes via many
    19 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Little reminder for you. Remember that protein comes via many different foods so if you hear us nutrition folk banging on about protein for breakfast we don’t expect or want you to get up and eat steak, bacon and eggs for brekky everyday. Mix up the variety of proteins in your diet. Why some protein in the morning? It helps stabilise both your appetite and energy levels to start the day, and of course by including it in any meal, so if we have an opportunity to positively impact our energy then why wouldn’t we? Try these quick ideas to

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition This was my plane food the other day. Maybe it’s a bit nerdy to pack a lunch box and raw snacks, but I can’t bear the thought of being caught out at the airport, on the plane or touching down and being hungry, sooooo I go prepared. Plane and airport food has come a long way yes but it ain’t gonna change to uber healthy for, well, ever most likely so if being a health nerd is my only option then I am totally down with that. Plus food, and certainly a grown woman with a byo lunch box on

    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition For my little pasta lover - Jet and all the pasta lovers in my life aka basically everyone. This RAINBOW PASTA is too easy not to make, and the lovely quinoa rice (gluten free) rainbow pasta shapes make it all the lovelier. Beautifully balanced in macronutrients and flavour, and ace because whilst you can eat it hot it’s also absolutely yummo as a pasta salad served cold. Been a feature in lunchboxes for us too, as a change to sambos and other more picky / small food type items. HOW PRETTY IS IT THOUGH? recipe just below for you, can

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition MUSHROOM PIZZAS = SCRUMPTIOUS, took about 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes in the oven, plus if you have left overs (unlikely as too yummy) you could chop them up and whack them into a pasta mmmm mmmmmm. Simple steps below for you and if you tune into my insta-stories and on the COOKING highlights reel thing I am doing heaps of kitchen how-tos for you. (Think it's my way of blogging right now as I haven't been doing much of that otherwise, other things happening - wont' be forever though!) MUSHROOMS PIZZAS 12 flat mushrooms, stalks removed 1/4 cup
  • PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE  Id say treat yoself cos its
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE : I’d say treat yoself cos it's Tuesday but you don't really need to save a weekday treat for a Tuesday or wait until the weekend to blow out your healthy eating for the week either. Eat intuitively my lovely friends. Listen to your body, when you feel like something e.g treat, ice cream, chocolate, eat and enjoy it mindfully instead of starving yourself of x and then overdoing/bingeing on it when you finally give in. I have lots of different treats in our fridge and freezer, I don't feel tempted to eat them all the time,

THE SETTING

We host our Byron Bay Retreats at our friends and students property Atlantic Byron Bay as it’s simply the best. The Atlantic Byron Bay is a lifestyle hotel. The perfect combination of location and style surrounded by swaying palm trees and the sound of the ocean. The Atlantic is the perfect getaway for couples with cafes, shops and white sandy beaches all steps from your deck. Soak up the sun on the lawn, hide under a palm tree and enjoy the balmy evenings by the fire pit.  Cast off your bags and start making moments at your home away from home.

THE SCHEDULE

We will meet on the Thursday afternoon at Atlantic  from 2pm for your check in at the Atlantic Byron Bay.  There will be beautiful teas, drinks and sweet treats to enjoy in the time you get settled, and at 5pm we will meet under the palms to enjoy a beautiful traditional Vedic ceremony. This is then followed by a Meditation Class (for those learning) or a private Rounding session. After everyone has become grounded and centred we will share a delicious nourishing dinner, to be held at the Atlantic in the garden around the fire, with an introduction to the program ahead by Jac under the stars with hot cups of coconut chai. Jac will host a Talk on Setting Intention, Present Moment Awareness and how to absorb the most from the experiences ahead. An early night is planned for the first evening to decompress from the travel.

On Friday we will be taking part in a special Breath, Mind and Body Yoga Class for 90 minutes and then enjoy a fresh and uplifting breakfast to keep everyone light and cleansed. A morning Meditation class or Rounding session (Rounding is an advanced practice for students who have already learnt meditation) will take place to bring everyone’s mind’s and bodies into alignment. Lunch you will be able to curate yourself, either ducking down the road to enjoy the many of Byron Bay’s beautiful cafes, or you can bring something to prepare at Atlantic to be enjoyed on the grass surrounded by birds, the little gecko’s and lizards.

There will be some free time in the afternoon to walk the sands of Byron Bay beach, hike to the lighthouse or simply relax and read in the sun by the pool at The Atlantic. That evening a wonderful early dinner will be prepared for you to enjoy together, with an evening stroll to the sounds of all the wildlife in the reserve by Atlantic, and then an evening philosophy session/workshop hosted by Jac on Defining Your High Grade Life.

“The retreat in Byron Bay was just what I needed. It was a beautiful gift to myself to take time out, learn the Vedic Meditation technique in a beautiful setting, be nourished by good food, be enriched by Jac’s teachings, to enjoy the company of likeminded people and the company of myself in our free time. Thank you Jac and Arran for making this happen. One week later and I am already feeling the benefit in my life. I look forward to doing this again sometime soon!” – ANNA

On Saturday, an early morning dip in the ocean and sunrise walk is available, or you might want to pop down the street for a coffee or fresh smoothie at one of the many amazing cafes in Byron.
We’ll enjoy a casual group  breakfast, and then the morning meditation class will take place with Rounding sessions for the Vedic meditators. Lunch again will be at your leisure, before an expansive afternoon Workshop including key topics such as
– Creating Your High Grade Values (so you can understand yourself better),
– Editing-Auditing-Refining Your Life ( to be empowered to be your best self)
– High Grade Communication (a key pillar to high grade living!)
– Understanding and enhancing Compassion, Gratitude and Loving Kindness
This deep Workshop will leave you with so many tools, philosophies and practices to incorporate into your life once home

On Sunday, a little sleep in will be available and then a gentle 60 minute Body, Breath and Yoga class (with a focus on how to continue a gentle practice at home) before a group Vedic meditation and Micro Workshop on Creating Ritual and Routine in Daily Life.  Brunch will be served and will be spectacular and the Retreat will wrap at midday on the Sunday.

We have two types of packages available and different room options. As this Retreat is customisable to your package and room, and we have limited rooms and places available, please email Shearry [email protected] with what you desire and we will see how we can best accomodate this.
