COVID-19 Retreat Host Update 15/6/2020

Dear Gymea Retreat Hosts,

Further to the closure of Gymea Eco Retreat & Spa due to COVID-19, we understand that these are unsettling times.  Please be assured the Gymea Retreat team is here to work through any challenges and opportunities with you, our valued and appreciated co-creators, and we will be looking to do that in a fair, practical and transparent manner.

Up to this point, retreat hosts who had retreats booked in May, June and July have had to reschedule to 2021.  As restrictions are now lifting, if you are a Retreat Host who has a confirmed booking with us from September till December, you have more options.   We will be re-opening and running our first retreats in August.  If you are still committed to running your retreat in 2020 we would love to help you with your marketing on social media and do what we can to support you to deliver a successful retreat.

For those of you who feel that running a retreat in 2020 is unachievable, we are pleased to offer you a 12-month window for you to rollover 100% of your booking deposit and secure a suitable and mutually agreeable date in 2021. Alternatively, you can check in with us about availability later in 2020.

So to reiterate the options:

  1. Run your retreat as planned, and Gymea supports you with your marketing
  2. Reschedule your booking to a later date in 2020. Please contact us to discuss available options by calling Sonia on 0418-678-088 or email
  3. Reschedule your booking to specific date in 2021. Please let us know your preferred timing via email:
  4. If you are like us and feeling like you are still getting to grips with the implication and impacts of the virus and you want to take a bit more of a “wait and see approach” to rescheduling your booking, that’s absolutely fine and understandable too. Just let us know via email of where you are at. 😊

This message and our undertaking to you is sent with our intention of love, openness and empathy.  Our heart-felt thanks to our regulars for your ongoing business, and for those of you with your first retreat coming up, for trusting and choosing us as a venue.

We honour all of you and are grateful for the beautiful working relationships that have been crafted together.  We believe that we are co-creating important work in the world, improving people lives through expanded consciousness and awareness, and we know that this is an important contribution to be making at any time, especially now.

We are all leaders in our various communities, and it feels important that, at this time, we take the opportunity to put our guidance into action in the world with one another and our various communities.

Please stay safe, look after yourselves and your tribes and we look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon.

Hugs and love,

Stephen, Sonia and family xx
