Ready To Be MORE Of Your Authentic Self?

Gina created the Authentic Self Process back in June 2004 when she was teaching ex-offenders in probation offices.

Obsessed with people watching, she was fascinated to see and talk to people out of integrity with themselves and reacting so strongly to other people’s expectations of them.

Through the Authentic Self Process Gina teaches how to be your Authentic Self at work and with your family.

During the Authentic Self Retreat, you will learn and experience the 3 steps to the Authentic Self Process: Raise, Release (includes The Soul Work™) and Reconnect.

Gina and Paula will be your guides on this journey.

Check out the feedback from previous attendees below!

"The retreat was amazing and I feel a real shift has happened inside me."
"I would highly recommend the Retreat to anyone that needs time-out to breathe and is looking for what might be blocking them currently. Gina’s style is one of gentleness, you can be sure you will be in safe hands in a caring and nurturing environment and will get to meet some amazing individuals with which to share your journey and have fun along the way. The location is peaceful, in harmony with the environment and your body will feel just as nourished as your soul, sampling the divine, organic, freshly picked delights from the perma-culture vegetable garden and made with love. Be prepared to emerge a slightly different and better version of yourself!"
"Absolutely one of the best things I’ve ever done! Thank you Gina and all for making it such a fabulous experience. Already looking forward to next years retreat!"
"Reconnecting to Who I Am was the most amazing thing I got from the retreat. I'll be back next year!"
"It's been a massive breakthrough for me being here."
"A life changing, soul exploring, nourishing experience. What I love about you Gina is, I know if I cut you open, you would be authentic right to the very core. You are living proof of authenticity in action. Since getting back my husband says I look 10 years younger. Being authentic and releasing my chains have clearly ironed out my wrinkles."
"Things have certainly been happening since Portugal - massive shift in my thinking! It was amazing. Definitely to be repeated!"
"A week of development and connection in the most beautiful natural surroundings. The balance of being in a completely organic sustainable environment whilst working on myself and my own growth was unbelievably rewarding and I've shifted so much since this retreat towards my true passions and purpose. Thank you Gina for creating this very special space, group and development opportunity."
