About the Inspired Life Centre
The Inspired Life Centre was founded by Jon and Kirsty Macdonald with the intention of providing an inspiring retreat space and sanctuary for leaders, teachers, creatives, influencers and individuals from all walks of life. Our guests come for many reasons, many to experience spiritual and emotional transformation and find clarity in how they live and lead, in beautiful inspiring and natural surroundings.
We are facing a unique time in the evolution of our planet where we believe our world needs as many people as possible to become awakened, lit up and to live a more inspired way of life. What feels like a personal journey into inspired living and leading is, also by default, a social and environmental path. To find a way to treat your life and career as a work of art ripples out beyond the edges of what you directly know and into the lives of others you influence, lead and parent.
The Inspired Life Centre is a place where you can explore different teachings, practices, therapies, and also simply immerse in the silence and beauty of the natural surroundings, in order to begin to know yourself more fully, to hear your inner wisdom more clearly and to craft a life for yourself that can make your heart sing. One of the most common things we hear our visitors and clients say is what a relief it is to exhale more deeply and to feel a greater sense of clarity and freedom than they have in a long time – perhaps ever before. And to this we dedicate the Inspired Life Centre.
We invite you as an individual, a retreat host or a leader in your field. Whether you are interested in attending a workshop or event, hosting a retreat or an offsite, or something else, just drop us a note here to make an enquiry and we shall be in contact soon.
