Emily and Rachael are excited to be coming together again in February 2024 to share their love of song, movement and beautiful environments in a therapeutic group space.  Over the weekend Emily and Rachael will facilitate group process and sharing, singing, gentle movement, yoga and relaxation.   There will also be time for quiet reflection and wanderings on the property in the beautiful Cottles Bridge countryside, only 50 minutes from Melbourne.
