“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.”–Mary Dunbar 


Welcome to

The River Retreat

​The River Retreat is your chance to connect with your authentic self and shape a life that is deeply, truly yours.

Awaken a deep connection with yourself. Transform the quality of your relationships and create new possibilities in your life. 

For a person to transform, the mind, body and spirit must be given equal care and attention. The River Retreat is about spoiling you, your mind, body and spirit, with life-changing proven processes, friendship, good food and wine, mindfulness practices and time out.

Transformation is not an event, but a process.  The River Retreat is the beginning of that process, to start your journey of focus, learning, achievement and self discovery, transforming the quality of your day to day lives.

We are interested in transformation, not change. When we transform, we fundamentally shift the way we see things, and these insights shift forever how we approach every situation.  Many of us are familiar with change, when we go back to how we’ve been thinking – maybe a week later, or a month later.  

The River Retreat is a place for deep personal work, join us to connect with your authentic self and shape a life that is deeply, truly yours.




Do you feel that you should be home with the kids or saving your money for something else?

Is this the choice you’ve always made?

It’s time for you.


It’s important to feel replenished so you can be your best self, the best partner, mother, wife, daughter you desire to be.

It’s time for you.


When you are feeling capable, relaxed, full, loving, and revitalised, you are able to make better decisions, be more creative and more present. 


You matter, and your decisions matter. It’s time to support your dreams and take action.  

It’s time for you.

What People Say About Felicity & Her Programs

I want to thank Felicity for the outstanding ability she has in tapping into the human emotion of every individual in the group.

Felicity and the group uncovered so much in regard to personal and professional pains and provided me the right tools for me to cure these.

Her incredible emotional intelligence allows you to workshop strategies and troubleshoot solutions to everyday problems that are effective and have a meaningful impact.

Thank you, you have really changed my perception on a lot of things and I will keep it with me for all future opportunities.

EVERYONE needs to do this course. Amazing and such an eye opener!

This was the single most enjoyable and enlightening course I’ve ever attended in my professional life. 

Throughout the course I gained a much greater self awareness which has enabled me to evolve and grow.
