Have you noticed how we can mistake the feeling of ‘being enough’ with being more worthy, more important, more loved, or AFTER we’ve completed that degree or achieved a particular milestone?
This time of the year is also when our well intentioned New Years Resolutions have fallen by the wayside and reality has set in regarding where our energy is at for the new year. We’re often surprised at how bloody exhausted we really are.
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU ARE ALREADY ENOUGH AS YOU ARE RIGHT NOW?
When any sense of ‘enough-ness’ comes from an external factor, such as a completed outcome or someone else’s opinion, it means we’re plugging into a foreign frequency to validate our internal worth.
It’s not a vibration that is ours to embody for not only will it make us insecure, but we also start to connect to ourselves in a provisional manner, creating scenarios akin to conditional love and acceptance.
Internal dialogues start to form in ways that place restrictions and conditions on our behaviour and subsequent worthiness such as:
- I’m only smart when I ace my test
- I’m only pretty when I’m skinny
- I’m only liked when I’m sweet
- I’m only respected when I’m tough
- I’m only popular when I’m funny
- I’m only special when this person tells me
JOIN ME FOR A WEEKEND TO REMEMBER, THAT REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU’RE AT ON YOUR LIFE JOURNEY, YOU ARE ALREADY ENOUGH.
One of the MANY reasons why I’ve been inspired to host this retreat is to invite like minded souls like you, who are ready to take a break from their environment and their comfort zone, so that they can be held in a deep, safe and reverent space during the shedding of old beliefs, integration of new activations and soulful rest of their tired and weary souls.
This time of the year is also when our well-intentioned resolutions have fallen by the wayside and reality has set in regarding where our energy is after a long winter. We’re often surprised at how bloody exhausted we really are.
That’s when I come in and invite you to join me for an opportunity to release what you no longer need as the long winter days start to wane, and your energy slowly starts to amplify outward in time for a spring emergence.
WHERE: Swami’s Retreat Centre
183 Pitt Town Rd, Kenthurst NSW 2156
One of the philosophies that I use in my workshops and on the healing journeys that I embark on with my clients is the importance of awareness, alignment, action and then allowing.
In order for this to occur in a way that can facilitate a deep transformation, we must first move ourselves away from our comfort zone and habitual processes that can sometimes enable unconscious patterns to remain fixed and stunt our growth.
This will then give us an opportunity to find clarity about the things we need to clear mentally and emotionally, as well as the space to align with our vision for what we want to see blossom in our lives. Once we fine-tune the integration process, we can then embody this into our psyche and expand our soul’s potential.
Come join me, Patty Kikos, for a restful, releasing & restorative retreat set in the beautiful Kenthurst countryside. Swami’s retreat centre is situated on 60 acres of tranquil bush land a mere 55 minutes away from the centre of Sydney.
The retreat facilities include a range of single and shared rooms, a (non heated) swimming pool, spa, sauna, tennis court, gym and walking trails through the surrounding natural bush. There is a fully dedicated and equipped yoga studio with a wood fireplace.
Using ancient tools and nature we will prepare our minds and bodies for releasing anything that is holding our spirit back from being aligned from walking our true path so that we can delve deeper into our own personal soul alignment.
But mostly to remember that YOU ARE ENOUGH just as you are. Whether you’re moving through a painful rite of passage, or if you are unclear about the next step you’d like to take, I’d like to invite you to join me to find peace with exactly where you happen to be traversing right now.
Together with me, you will clear tension and stress from your physical vessel through the sacred practices of kundalini yoga, breath work designed to facilitate a rebirth, powerful energy healing transmissions, as well as gong healings and yoga nidra so that you can reconnect to your body, mind and spirit.

I feel your heartbeat I feel every single one of you, if I close my eyes I see ever one of you, I’m still in that circle.. when I heard patty was having a retreat I just went head first I knew it was my time. I knew it was time to get out of my comfort zone. I didn’t know who I was going to meet what I was going to see or anything it was my first retreat. To achieve this, Patty has s huge heart such a pure heart to hold space for so many people and to witness this healing and impact that this retreat had on so many people…can’t wait for out next one!
Do you tune into your own frequency often enough? If so, how do you regularly check in with your energy? Because embodying the art of attunement takes practice.
Energy is so interesting, isn’t it? Sometimes we get big surges of powerful inspiration that drive us into action, but at other times, its just radio silence.
I believe that we must learn to listen to the instrument of our soul so we can tune in and to listen to our inner voice. An instrument played often remains in tune.
A body in motion stays in motion. A spirit that feels safe will soar. A soul that is at peace can be of service.
Don’t wait to live your life.
Don’t let someone else determine your worth
Don’t postpone your dreams.
Don’t stop chasing your dreams.
Don’t wait to speak your truth.
Don’t wait to give forgiveness.
Don’t wait to shine your beautiful light.
