“What Makes a Leader”? Emotional intelligence through self-awareness was the conclusion of author, Daniel Goldman, in a 2015 Harvard Business Review Article. Within each of you are leadership abilities. These will be much needed in times to come. This retreat will focus on activating them.

It takes courage to lead through love. Ashtara will use unconventional fun methods and natural body/mind/spirit technologies to help you do so. Meditations, prayer and simple exercises will be given to aid your development. Some of the benefits you will experience, and be able to use effectively in life include:

  • Activating your natural seat of feminine power, your feelings.
  • Right-left brain balance
  • Self-generating and distributing the love frequency
  • Developing the ability to view life from a higher and broader perspective
  • Enhancing your natural ESP abilities to assist your work and life.


  • Daily inspired teachings, meditations and ceremonies
  • An indigenous ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony
  • Opportunities to experience vibrational healing
  • A guaranteed journey back to your heart’s centre

Here’s what other people had to say about Ashtara’s 2019 Retreat, Song of the Soul.

This retreat has been an insightful and fascinating experience conducted in a safe and loving environment.  Ashtara’s presentation is interesting, fun, caring and factual. Excellent!


Ashtara is an enlightened teacher of esoteric philosophies, astrology and consciousness. She is an example of a soul who has mastered teachings from many dimensions. Thank you Ashtara for your insights. With love,”

Meg Huppatz, Adelaide

I attended Ashtara’s Song of the Soul at Gymea Eco Retreat Centre over Easter 2019. I felt guided to come and was not disappointed. Ashtara is warm, generous and playful. Her knowledge of esoteric astrology, spirituality, health and wellness is vast, and her teachings are practical and easy to practice in everyday life.

Ashtara’s teaches ways to raise your vibration, and this wisdom comes from a place of pure love, for our own spiritual growth and transformation. A retreat with Ashtara is an experience that nourishes the soul and makes your heart sing”.

Fiona Craig, Life Balance Coach, Sydney.

Thank you precious Ashtara, for the wonderful opportunity to learn from your wisdom and knowledge, and for guiding us home to the truth of who we really are. I have learned much and will take this new awareness going forward to transform into higher consciousness. Much love and light.


I feel blessed to have been privy to Ashtara’s great knowledge and passion for astrology. My life has been greatly enhanced by her teachings and generosity of spirit.

Kim Morotti, Brisbane

As you know I wasn’t sure what to expect from this Retreat, though I was drawn to go from the outset! This isn’t a ‘usual’ for me!

So happy I made the commitment, everything at Gymea was beautiful & the energy & peace (& food) that came with the experience was beautiful! I know I have a lot of ‘learning’ to do but with your amazing insights, energy AND fun aspects all made the Retreat a ‘not to be missed’ opportunity. It was a special time of opening & awareness – for helping move forward in this world, as we know it & whatever is beyond! Thank you so much Ashtara & I do hope to be able to link into some of the planned activities next year!”

Lots of Love & light
