The top 5 reasons people join
the Thrive & Dive Retreat

The role of business leader in today’s society is complex and rapidly shifting. We have so many choices and opportunities and a narrative that at first feels empowering as it tells us “I can do it all”, but then it feels deeply troubling “I should do it all and I am not doing enough”. This inner conflict leaves us feeling hollow and powerless.

As leaders we are biologically and socially conditioned to find value in what we do for others. So we do more and more for others in every arena of our lives until we are exhausted and personally, physically, energetically, spiritually, and emotionally drained. Our society values progress over wellness and ‘doing’ over ‘being’. But living this way has consequences to our entire being. So many people are feeling disconnected from who they truly are.

So many leaders are literally running on empty as they try and manage the juggle of being a great partner, parent, business owner, employee, sibling, friend, community member and all of the other roles they play on a daily basis.

The tiredness and feeling that something is deeply missing from your life just doesn’t go away. You desire time and space to try and work it out, but you feel like everyone needs you so much that you could never take that time for yourself.

What is the Vision System?

The Vision System is an approach to business and life that guides and paves the way for you to have more freedom in your life. Vision has the power to get you more time, flexibility, better health, business success, financial stability, relationship contentment, and personal freedom when used in its full power. The Vision System is a formula to help you build a business and life that you can leverage for more time, money, and freedom. Despite these benefits, most of us don’t utilise vision in our business or personal lives. You may lack confidence in your skills and assets so you fail to take advantage of them, or you may be unclear on what you desire. Vision can help you save time and money, gain expertise, transform your relationships, and so much more. Understanding the power of vision is the first step in expanding your opportunities and overall fulfillment. It  guides you to live life to your fullest potential.

This retreat is more than just “Dive Time”. 

The Thrive & Dive Retreat has been created for Leaders who know they need to make improvements in their life. 

As a Transformational Coach, Bree works with:

  • Your conscious mind
  • Your subconscious mind
  • Your energetic body
  • Your physical body
  • Your emotional body

You will explore yourself and gain a deeper understanding of who you are and what you truly want from life. 

Just one small change can change your life and the life of everyone around you exponentially. 

After these four days, your life will never be the same again.

What they are saying...

This retreat was well worth the investment. The best investment I can make is in myself.

Kristy DonohoePast attendee

The retreat was 100% worth the investment - it provided clarity through awakenings and deep learnings that I have been trying to achieve for years.

Sarah SullivanPast attendee

This retreat was definitely worth the investment of time and money. I will forever be grateful for being able to do this opportunity. I was slightly worried about leaving my family for four nights, but it turns out it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Kylie HinesPast attendee

The retreat was certainly worth it! The benefits of taking time out to learn more about yourself and your goals and how to look after yourself better is an investment in your future.

Jenni RigbyPast attendee

This retreat was amazing. I had not much of a clue on what to expect and I was delighted it exceeded anything I ever thought it would be!

Annie AllanPast attendee

I would recommend this retreat 100%, and have too many people already. If you’re thinking of going on the retreat, you already know the answer. Without a doubt you will find great value in this.

Beth CPast attendee

This retreat is for Leaders who won’t compromise to have the life they want.

Owning your own business or being a leader of one, is not for the faint of heart. Success in business is 80% psychology and 20% skill, and this is why not everyone succeeds. Many business leaders are great at what they do, but how they do business energetically, and their mindset, can negatively impact their leadership and success. People management, self-leadership and leadership of others is always done better when we are truly confident and congruent with who we are. This retreat will help you ‘dive deep’ on what you want for yourself and the business you lead, it’s business and life planning like you’ve never done before. 

So many business leaders have been slogging it. Bree will help you strategise what you want personally and professionally and we will clear some of the energetic and limiting beliefs holding you back from achieving your vision.

When we make time for ourselves, we come back energised, clear and excited for the future. When we invest in ourselves, the ripple effect on our life and the life of those around us is immeasurable.

Time to reflect
Space to journal in your Vision Book
Moments to relax & be
Opportunities to reconnect to yourself
Reasons to challenge your thinking

It’s time to have the freedom you started your business for

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most unique marine spectacles; A majestic aquatic wonderland perfect for scuba diving.

If you have a pre-existing medical condition like asthma or diabetes, you will need medical clearance from your GP or complete a dive medical with a Dive Doctor. You also need to be able to tread water for 10 minutes and swim 200 metres without stopping. The course takes four days and includes an e-learning component that you do in advance.

The Vision Voyage for me was a really enjoyable experience, I was fortunate to make friends with the people on the Vision Voyage that I see as a long term friendship going into the future. We had so many fun days and we learnt something new every day. I have really happy memories from doing this trip and I would quite happily do it again every single year.

Elle LathamPass Attendee

If you get the opportunity to go on retreat with Bree - do it! Don’t question or make excuses - just do it. I am so grateful for the opportunity to attend the retreat. I have learnt some valuable lessons and rediscovered parts of myself that were lost. I have gained clarity on moving forward and I am ready to be the best version of myself- thank you!

Kylie HinesPass Attendee

It's well worth it! In just a short period of time, you can have a much clearer vision of your goals, your purpose, what drives you and a more positive outlook on how you can achieve what you want!

Jenny RigbyPast Attendee

The Vision Voyage is something I will forever cherish. This amazing experience has not only given me life long friendships but also a new perspective on how I view myself and my future. In the span of 4 days we got to explore beautiful bali while deep diving into our Vision Book questions with our guide Bree James. To this day I still refer back to what I learnt on this vision voyage and I'm very grateful. If you are wanting to gain clarity and focus on your future, I highly suggest you embark on the Vision Voyage.
