    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Friday night = red wine and rocky road Oh yeaaaaah, big week and that right there my friends is BALANCE. Have you made rocky road at home before?

I haven't in this one but please Aussies include STRAWBERRIES! Buy them,

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER OATS BARS!!! Hello hump day happiness! My gorgeous friend Evie  @genevieve .writes made these for me - they're heavenly delicious, simple and nourishing. Great one for an after school treat or 3pm pick me up, such a good combo of healthy carbohydrates (oats / dates) and plant based proteins (peanut butterrrrrrrr). Peanut butter, all natural, no nasty extras added, has is one of the higher sources of amino acids in the nut butter family. If you team it with a grain like oats you deliver a variety of plant based aminos to the body with a simple sweep. Cool

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Grilled asparagus, smoked trout, and the mossssstttt delicious hemp mustard creme! Yum!!! Plenty of essential fatty acids, nourishing proteins and as for the added bonus extras - did you know asparagus is rich in a bioflavonoid call 'rutin' ? Its role is to protect our cells from free radical damage, assist the body's production of collagen, and to strengthen capillaries so it's a wonderful nutrient for the health of our skin!

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.
