The LoveLife Women's Retreat

Are you wanting to discover the beauty and power of your female sexuality and discover the true essence of womanly empowerment?

Then I invite you to join me, Jacqueline Hellyer, at my LoveLife Women's Retreat. Now in it's sixteenth year! There is so much misinformation and so many myths about female sexuality that it can be pretty confusing. Are we supposed to be good girls or bad girls, madonnas or whores, porn stars or prudes? How can you be authentically your natural gorgeous sexual self? What does that even mean?

Find out at one of my beautiful, inspiring weekends of embodying your sexuality: getting into your body, feeling your energy, opening yourself up to the incredible potential of your female sexuality. Whether you’re:

  • a mother wanting to put yummy back into mummy,
  • a long-term wife or partner who’s lost her mojo,
  • shy and timid and wanting your hand held to explore,
  • a woman wanting to build your sexual confidence and increase libido,
  • getting older and wanting to stay young and vibrant in your life and sexuality,
  • long-term single and wanting to get out there,
  • active and out there but lacking the ability to make intimate connection,
  • or already empowered and knowing there's always more to learn and experience...

... every woman can benefit from the LoveLife Women's Retreat experience!

Participant Testimonials

jacqueline hellyer review

"Thank-you for for so skillfully weaving my sexuality and spirituality back together. I now feel the way I’ve always wanted to feel."

jacqueline hellyer review

"“It's been a deep, profound and subtle spiritual liberation. It's given me the freedom and empowerment to open up and allow myself to feel and to express how I feel, in every way. This feeling of liberation and love and power and openness pervades my whole life and how I live now, and I can see the effect it has on others too and how they respond to me. It's very subtle, but soooo powerful and wonderful. It feels like it is radiating out from the very core of my being and is an all encompassing love, so, very much including, but not just about, my sexual being.""

jacqueline hellyer review

""I never expected the Luscious Woman Workshop to have such a dramatic change on how I view myself and how I now feel sexy, feminine and graceful. I've never said those words about myself before!""

jacqueline hellyer review

""It feels like I am taking possession of my 'goddesshood'! As a consequence I find that I am now confident and settled and calm with my husband and I can move between the goddesses, giving and receiving as the dance feels right. It's quite glorious, we're loving it. There is so much more I could say - I am so grateful and joyous! Thank you so much for your dedication, commitment, honesty and love.""

What happens at the LoveLife Women's Retreat

A group of up to 12 women of all ages and stages of life come together over three days to discover, explore and celebrate what it is to be a woman and in particular what it is to be a sexual woman.

You will learn:

  • The Yin and Yang of Womanliness - feel the balance of strength and softness for a sense of completeness and empowerment.
  • The Herstory of Female Sexuality - learn why our society is sexually dysfunctional, how it got that way and what we can do about it.
  • The Anatomy of Female Desire - understand how your body is a sexual pleasure machine, how we're designed for exquisite pleasure.
  • Feel Embodied Mindfulness - learn to create the state of 'alert relaxation' that allows for deep and heightened connection and sexual response.
  • Discover and Embody the Seven Elements of Female Sexuality - understand the seven sexual elements, your seven "Sex Goddesses" within so you can evolve into a sexually mature, empowered woman.
  • Men are from Earth, Women are from Earth - understand how we are all human and other than some basic physical differences, gender differences are mostly social conditioning.
  • Explore Polarity - giving and receiving, leading and following, asking for what you want and giving feedback
  • Genital Play - discover an empowered, mutually pleasurable approach to engaging with your partner's genitalia
  • The Art of Sex - learn about non-linear love-making and how there is so much more to sex than you’ve ever realised
  • True Consent - real consent is not just about saying 'no', it's about knowing and expressing your 'yes'
  • Tantric Connection - learn the how and why of embodied mindfulness with a partner.

I draw on knowledge and experience from ancient traditions to modern science and therapeutic practice, so information and activities include:
- Tantric and Taoist practices
- Musing and Meditating
- Movement and Energy
- Discussion, Laughter and Great Conversation!

Rest assured there is no nudity or sexual touch at these events, they are totally tasteful and sleaze-free!

Your Seven Sex Goddesses Within

The retreat is based on my original research into the seven elements of sexuality. I like to think of them as the Seven Sex Goddesses Within! This developmental approach will help you to find wholeness, a mature complete meaningful sexuality

(You'll also learn to avoid the shadow sides of the elements, which are anything but empowering.)

"By accessing all seven elements of yourself and your sexuality, unleashing all your sex goddesses within, you will become a beautiful powerful loving woman."

One participant describes the retreat well:

"I am so grateful that retreats like this exist and that I have had the opportunity to participate. I've been reading a lot of books on love, intimacy and sexuality over the last 12 months and the course really helped to join all the dots and reinforce some of the key ideas in this field of study, as well as introducing some new ideas, language and concepts. All the activities, exercises, group discussions, games, art & craft, talking, listening, slide shows... there was so much to each day and I certainly took something home after every activity! I really wish that all women had the opportunity to do a course like this, no matter their age, ethnicity or sexual preference. I only wish I had done the course when I was nineteen years old!"

""Thank-you for creating a safe space for us all to learn, grow and share. Absolutely essential for all women who want to thrive, not just survive.”"

jacqueline hellyer review

""I have to tell you that this experience has been life changing for me, and your wonderful loving work in helping us let go and come into ourselves made this life change such a warm comfortable natural process, that I can hardly remember what it was like before.”"

jacqueline hellyer review

"Thanks so much for a life changing weekend. I honestly mean it! I feel like a completely different person!!!!!"

On a personal note:

I’ve been running women’s workshops and retreats for sixteen years now and I absolutely love them. There’s so much crap associated with female sexuality, so many limiting myths and misinformation, that it’s a great privilege for me to shine a light on this part of life so you can discover just how gorgeous your sexuality really is!

It’s hard to find really good quality, empowering information on sex as a woman. Positive female role models who really know their stuff and walk the talk are hard to find. Well, I’ve been on this journey myself and I’ve helped countless women discover for themselves how awesome it is to open to their sexuality, so I hope I can be that for you.

Over this weekend I’ll distill all my knowledge and experience, to guide you along the way to your own empowerment. I hope you will join me, and let me help you discover the delicious pleasure of being a truly luscious woman!

I strongly encourage you to stay at Brightlands, even if you live close by, as part of the experience is the bonding and conversation that happens when we all stay together. 

If you would rather stay elsewhere, please talk to me first as I have reserved all the rooms for the retreat and could end up being liable for the cost of the accommodation if you don't stay there! 

Yes, all food requirements can be met. And it's all delicious!

If at any time you want some time out or don't want to participate, you are very welcome to have a break or sit out. That's totally up to you.

Absolutely! The retreat is suitable for everyone who identifies as a woman.
