A perfect balance of mindfulness meditation, yoga, workshop sessions, fun and relaxation.
This retreat is epic and exclusive so register early to secure your place.


Nik, along with her mindful mate Maggie are taking you on retreat! After having attended around 20 retreats between them, Nik & Maggie have designed the kind of mindfulness retreat they have always dreamed of.  

This is unlike anything else!  A perfect balance of mindfulness meditation, yoga, workshop sessions, fun and relaxation.

All this in a tropical location with spectacular views and healthy, delicious food.  There’ll be plenty of free time just to chill, explore vintage Fiji (this is not your regular tourist island), or even take on some action.  How about snorkelling, hiking, village tours, and waterfalls - or, indulge in a massage, curl up with a favourite book or just lay by the pool! 

The retreat will be based on the well-known Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course and will include other offerings from mindfulness approaches that Nik and Maggie are inspired by. 

This retreat will be epic and exclusive so register early to secure your place. THIS IS IT!


“Very unpretentious and relaxed, the true Fiji “family” experience.”

Hi, I’m Maggie, an experienced mindfulness teacher, mental health social worker, and Couple Therapist.  Since my first 10 day silent retreat in 1994, I have known just how powerful meditation can be, but it wasn’t until experiencing Jon Kabat Zinn’s 8-week MBSR program that I was able to truly integrate mindfulness into my personal life, and also into my counseling and other work.  I feel so privileged to share this passion for mindfulness as a way of living more fully, kindly and well.

I am super excited to join Nik in leading this retreat, as I feel inspired by her dynamic teaching style, and the compassionate, fun & practical wisdom she embodies.

I live with my lovely partner and three beautiful teenage daughters (& slobbery chocolate Lab) in Castlemaine, next door to miles of bush that I love walking in each day. 


Hi! I’m Nik, a qualified MBSR facilitator and the founder of the Mindfulness Project.

I’ve spent years teaching the 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, and have experience hosting both national & international mindfulness & yoga retreats.

I’ve worked as an Addiction Counsellor, where I taught mindfulness-based relapse prevention to people in recovery for addictive behaviours/in residential rehabilitation facilities.

I also provided general counseling in reducing stress, anxiety, and family-related issues.

I live in the Yarra Valley in Melbourne, Australia with my husband Pete and our 3 kids, Bella, Charli, and Billy.

I can’t wait to see you in Fiji!
