Michelle’s Spirit of Woman Retreat Story - “Absolutely divine”

Michelle came to our Spirit of Woman retreat over 8 years ago.

She has used Spirit of Woman at pivotal points in her life. It allowed her space before transition, to think and feel different about where she was at.

For her, she adored the unique nature of the retreat. It is truly like nothing else. It allowed a change from daily life to enable her to embrace a new outlook on the everyday.

Michelle describes the environment of Spirit of Woman as a completely supportive and nurturing space. From the people, to the food, energy and attitude, the retreat is curated to hold space for woman to be woman.

She came to her first Spirit of Woman after 7 years of trying to get pregnant. Spirit of Woman helped her process this experience, let go and find love again.
Her second Spirit of Woman retreat was when she was about to get married. This retreat gave her life long friends as she embarked on a new chapter of her life.

She did some outrageous stuff on the retreat. Things beyond the comfort zone. Ultimately the retreat included a huge embracing of the physical body. A big theme of the retreat looks at transcending body insecurity and cultivating self love in every woman, both professionally and personally.

With a team of friends and supporters, the retreat encouraged Michelle to stand up and be present to herself in a whole different way.

While it has been 8 years since her last Spirit of Woman experience, Michelle is still glowing and happy. Thank you for sharing your experience Michelle. It’s beautiful to see your growth and smiles.

High Spirits Retreat - Mette's Institute

We had an amazing reunion of facilitators and team members over the weekend. We celebrated the joy of being part of people’s transformation, the lives we’ve touched and the lives that have changed us.

25 years ago we started Mette’s Institute.

And while I have often hesitated to share my story, I was encouraged this weekend. Inspired and grateful for the people who have helped my dreams come true. Filled with love and admiration for the people who have believed and supported me.

I want to share this little story to encourage you on your path. To remind you that the projects and hopes you have can always come true. That even though it may take 25 years or 50, it’s amazing what can be done. The fact is, having the vision and doing what I love, has meant it didn’t matter if we achieved it or not. It has truly been a journey for all.

25 years ago we arrived in Australia. Another language and another culture. Starting with the vision and the hope. With a whizz of a husband with me. A humble, gentle, genius of a man. A man who shared my idealism, who shared my bossyness and who shared my faith.

But I had a gift. I had a message to share. And with Jorgen, Ka Huna massage was the magic. It had the undeniable truth of healing. It embodied the fact that - massage does heal people, touch does open hearts and in doing so, people find freedom and an outlet for self expression.

It has been this gift that has led me. While it has been a dream both Jorgen and I have been driven by, it has always been larger than ourselves. It’s like this massive wave of people, of healers and feelers. It is this technique, this philosophy and this ‘way’ that will forever be the guide. It reminds us of the natural love and gratitude we all have.

So that’s what this weekend felt like. Holding space for the pure organic perfection of the people present. Being part of a community that allows you to feel and be. To hold space. A place that has ultimately opened my heart to feel, to be and finally breathe again.

All my love,
Mette <3

A L O H A ~ to love is to be happy with. 💚💚💚
Love is the gentle energy that melts away resistance. It is the unconditional acceptance of everything. It is the dropping of barriers and the need to separate good from bad, positive from negative.
Wishing you a fresh and loving start to the week, from all of us at High Spirits Retreat!🌿🌈😍
