About Carole and this relaxing blog:
“Pause. Breathe. Repeat” Rejuvenation Lounge’s mantra
Rejuvenation Lounge is about remembering to pause and stay close to ourself. One small ritual at a time.
It’s about adding more moments of pausing, thoughtful breathing, softer thinking, slow living, digesting of life, sacred moments and intentional rest (to balance out the residual effects of crazy fast).
All with the higher purpose of untangling, coming back to our centre, so we can be the healthiest, wisest brightest shining version of ourselves.
I hope I do this with my simple daily rituals, regular blog posts, downloadable meditations, free downloadable manifesto, global full moon healing circles and at my Rejuvenation Lounge Retreats in Italy, Spain, Bali, France and England. xx Carole
Pause – Breathe – Repeat ~That’s my mantra.
~ Writer ~ Relaxation alchemist ~ Crafter of stillness retreats ~
Welcome xox Carole
I’d like to think I’m a writer, relaxation alchemist, crafter of delicious slow retreats sprinkled with a background trained in counselling, restorative yoga, meditation and holistic healing.
I’m a lover of chai tea, dark organic chocolate, hula hooping, my vintage bicycle (#itswatermelon), deep rest yoga, barefoot walking, shaking my booty (dance is medicine), knitting (its the new yoga).
I adore being a mother of 3 rocking boys. Motherhood is such a precious gift. I’ve held the space for my boys to grow and discover who they are over the past 10 years (on my own). And loved every minute of it. The easy and the difficult bits.
At the moment I’m living in sunny, warm Queensland, Australia with my three boys. Two are still teenagers.
For the past 20 years I’ve studied oodles (and I mean oodles) of different natural healing and spiritual modalities (and continue to do so). Love learning!
I’m a huge fan of vibrational medicine including flower essences, essential oils and gem elixirs. Most days you find me burning essential oils or spraying potions into the air. I offer Circles of Healing both globally and personal 1:1 healing support sessions.
I’m secretly addicted to my oracle cards and probably have over 15 decks at home collected over 20 years. My Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards are still my favourite after 10 years. They always hold the answers. If I need healing, then my Liquid Crystal Oracle cards hold potency to activate the change within. Check them out.
My lifestyle now leans more towards the Ayurvedic way of living. It simply works for my body and helps keep my mind calmer. I’m prone to having an over excitable mind so nature is my medicine and best friend along with warm oil self massage and alternate nostril breathing. Driving a car does not work me nor does busy shopping centres.
I’ve sat in a teepee and cleansed myself in sage smoke every weekend for 6 month, learnt to read messages from nature, meditated for a day on Goddess Pele’s sacred volcano in Hawaii (she’s never far away), experienced sweat lodges with Grandfathers and the list of spiritual quests and adventures goes on. I won’t bore you.
I write this blog, the daily prompts, full moon healing circles and facilitate my Rejuvenation Lounge Retreats strongly from my intuition and through a higher guidance. I’m often amazed at the words which appear in front of me. Writing fuels my soul with the good stuff.
If it feels right in my belly I’ll write a blog post or add another retreat. If it doesn’t feel right in my belly, it doesn’t happen. Simple.
Do I get confused at times? Of course, I’m human.
About Carole’s retreats:
Quite a few years ago now I started Rejuvenation Lounge Retreats.
I began small by offering one retreat a year as my children were very young. I didn’t advertise or even have a business card (I still don’t). People booked simply from reading this blog Rejuvenation Lounge or by word of mouth.
Over the years I added a couple more retreats as my boys got a little older. People kept booking. Grateful.
As the majority of my blog readers are from America, Canada or England I started adding European locations. Italy was first. Scary. Super scary. But I did it anyway. The retreats booked out. Phew!
As of today I offer around 8 or so retreats a year in Morocco, Italy and Bali and have just added Spain, France and England. I never planned this path for myself. There’s never been a business plan. There’s never been an advertising plan. There never will be. And its certainly not about the money. I go where the energy takes me. The direction of least resistance. Flow and simplicity are my foundations. If I feel stuck. I stop. Create space for the new to arrive. I’ve learnt not to solve stuff with the mind.
My retreats, without a doubt, are my absolute passion. My heart and soul is infused into each and every one of them. I can’t begin to describe the amount of joy they bring me. Around 3 or 4 weeks before each retreat I start tuning into the energy of the group. All retreats begin this way. I open up to inspiration and the crafting of a magical retreat gradually blossoms.
I feel blessed to be doing something I love. Learning and sharing is what its all about.
Look forward to meeting you one day soon and sharing a cuppa chai tea.
Peace, love and brand new adventures to each and every one of you, xx Carole

Photo left was taken in Ubud, Bali September 2013. Sitting in Clear Cafe drinking the best chai, cashew nut milk and artisan palm sugar chai in the entire world. It’s the very first drink I have when I get to Bali.
Peace, love and chai tea
