Testimonials

At Anahata Retreats in Mullumbimby we take pride in how well visitors respond to their treatments, which is why we want to leave it to them to share their experiences.

I feel safe in the hands of Rhonda. I have been able to explore the times in my life that have been buried so deeply by being sacredly held by her. I love it when she gently pushes and pulls me along.

E.D. (Counsellor)

Rhonda has a unique ability to facilitate me to really go deep into my embodied past. Rhonda accompanied me back into my memories of painful experiences and stayed with me. Now I am feeling more alive and able to keep up that level of self-awareness.

D.K. (Graphic Designer)

…the incredible journey we went on together on Wednesday. If I could put it in a sentence – I am learning how to take control of my life.

S.A (Chef)

I’m trying to contain my excitement and I know a session with you will tease out other crap tangled up in it, and I’ll be able to change a lot of things. You’ve helped me see so many things that are right there in front of me.

N.H. (Acupuncturist)

I’ve landed at home clearer about myself, waiting for all the pieces to fall back into their new position, and knowing that I am changed as a result of the work we have done. I feel I’m in a growth phase and the weekend was a useful opportunity to reflect and explore.

The group was amazing, you are wonderful, Anahata retreats is divine…thank you!

This retreat was such a rich, deep experience filled with love, connection and support. I feel honoured to have shared the space with such a wise and loving group of people. Thank you Phil and Rhonda for creating and holding a space for magic and profound healing to occur!

Lisa Turnbull

I’m honoured to have attended the March Retreat with Rhonda & Phil. I am still feeling shifts and profound levels of clarity about who I am in the world, and inside myself. THE most healing retreat I’ve attended. Humbled & honoured. Can’t wait till next year!!!

Leanna McNeil

In February I participated in an SGI “Restoration and Renewal” retreat with Phil Oldfield and Rhonda Gibson-Long, held in Rhonda and her husband Rodney’s home in Mullumbimby. The location was perfect, with very comfortable accommodation provided in their large beautiful house with a wide wooden verandah, in spectacular surroundings of tall trees, rainforest, running streams and creeks, a dam (home to platypus), and rolling lawns.

I loved every moment of this retreat. I felt deeply nourished in my mind, heart, body and spirit and continually restored to good strong connection and contact with myself and others. All of us present co-created a wonderful, supportive, joyful community. We engaged in beautiful, robust, authentic contact and did rich, creative and heartfelt process work with loving awareness. Our needs were taken care of and provided for with generosity, grace and humour by Rhonda’s husband, Rodney, who prepared and served us an ongoing variety of delicious, nutritious and wonderful sumptuous feasts. Within the wisdom and magic of the Gestalt process, I experienced the unfolding of new levels of learning and awareness. My heartfelt gratitude goes to Phil, Rhonda and Rodney.

Phil and Rhonda not only have a mastery of their craft, they have a deep connection with their own humanity and generously open their hearts and home to welcome all participants.

Nicole Hope-Allen

What an amazing experience! I leave the weekend full and rich and going away with much more than I thought possible. Rhonda and Phil’s facilitation was exquisite. Thank you!

Rebecca Murray

One of the most skilfully facilitated workshops that I have attended in the last 10 years.

Maria Neill

I came away from the weekend feeling different, changed. I was more relaxed, more open, more available to meet friends. I enjoyed people more and was less critical and people were giving me positive feedback in that I was acknowledged for being me. Actually others were seeking me out which was a really good feeling. I was not so worried about what others thought of me. I feel very alive and free – really enjoying myself and my contact with others.

Paula Montalbetti

I learned much from Phil’s facilitation and his breakdown and analysis of interventions offered.
I liked how Phil and Rhonda weaved in theory and supervision throughout the workshop seamlessly.
The different use of experimentation was brilliant.
Wonderful food cooked with abundant love.
