Nourish and Lead: Leadership and Wellbeing Retreat

Join Dr Claire Warden, Anthony Semann, Colin Slattery, and Beth Borowsky for a Leadership Retreat in the Hunter Valley. Limited to 20 places, this opportunity to learn from these respected leaders is not to be missed!


How often do you allow yourself to step outside the daily grind and be gifted with slowing down, feasting your senses, being embodied and simply letting go?

Not often – right?

Semann & Slattery and The Karma Class invite you to pause, join us, Dr Claire Warden and other like-minded professionals and allow yourself to be nourished.  

This nourishment and leadership retreat has been specially designed to explore how the essentials of good leadership are irrevocably bound to our wellbeing…it offers:

  • a wealth of experiences designed to nourish you
  • thought-provoking leadership workshops and discussion groups
  • time spent with recognised leaders
  • opportunities to relax and network

Nourish and Lead is for individuals and leaders who need to pause and seek clarity on aspects of work, self and life. It offers our guests the gift of being with others who are seeking the same as we cultivate opportunities for reflection, deliberation and planning for the future.
