The retreat is hosted by Kylie and Arabella, partners and friends, with a passion for Country, and a clear future that centres spiritual and intellectual connection to environment as a way to lead forward. 

Kylie's journey is to discover connection to Country with meaning, a questioning of foundations, and rebuilding a new foundation allowing the land to lead. Arabella's journey is continuous as a First Nations woman, with a unique ability to ignite understanding of Aboriginal philosophy, values, systems and teachings on their lands.
