Powerful Speaking for Powerful Women

Tricia Karp

Once upon a time women of a certain age were revered for their wisdom.

They earned their crowns from experience, living through love, heartbreak, hope and fear, embracing lessons of compassion and non-judgment.

They emerged in midlife as women unto themselves, sovereign and powerful, confident and authentic, owning and sharing their profound gifts with the world.

Their wisdom was wanted and deeply valued by younger women, men and children.

These days it’s a different story.

In a society that worships youth, our wisdom is so often misunderstood.

The world has no clue how powerful, exquisite and magnificent we really are.

It’s time to put the Wise Woman back on the map.

Back to being seen and heard in the fullness of her power, magic, and true beauty.

Back to her rightful place, revered in a world that so desperately needs a wise, mature femininity.

It starts with us.

It’s time to meet and own our Midlife Magic.

You’re Invited to Play in all Your Power & Magic

When wise women gather, united in a loving purpose, we set fire to nothing short of a revolution.

Old enough to not care about what other people think, we shout ‘yes’ to our gifts and what gives us meaning in our lives.

We claim our truth, our healing powers, the beauty of our hearts that have given so much, and our fierce courage.

Young enough to create life on our own terms as we boldly put ourselves first, we nourish our bodies, spirits and sexiness, and feel more alive, daring, energised and radiant that we knew we could.

We dive in head first to our Midlife Magic, supporting and celebrating one another with so much love, care, and laughter too.

And we never look back…

What You’ll Receive

At the Midlife Magic retreat you’ll:

  • Learn Taoist and Tantric feminine practices to empower you to be the amazing woman you are, with a focus on simple, ancient self-healing techniques to give you more energy, vitality and radiance
  • Take part in healing rituals to let go of woundedness about ageing handed down through your lineage and our culture, and claim your power as the wise woman you truly are
  • Discover the power of your sensual and sexy pleasure. Like a fine red wine this gets better as you age when you know how to access your potent feminine essence
  • Receive a sacred styling session so you can learn how to dress in ways that truly reflect your inner beauty, power and magic. We’ll go on a special shopping trip too!
  • Take part in daily yoga, meditation, nutrition classes and dance, to nourish your body, mind and spirit
  • Dine at beautiful organic restaurants
  • Discover a deeper sense of self-worth, inner peace, and sparkle!
  • Awaken and claim new levels of your power, beauty and feminine wisdom

And so much more…

A note on Tantra:

Tantra is often misunderstood and tends to conjure a lot of fear for people, mostly with concerns about taking part in unsafe or uncomfortable sexual practices or situations.

I want you to know that some of the practices we’ll do in this retreat use sexual energy to help us open our hearts and reach higher states of love. Our sexual energy is simply our creative life force energy. You don’t have to have sex to access it, or even use it sexually. Knowing how to work with this energy has many health benefits for our vitality and radiance. That’s what we’ll work on in the retreat. I guarantee you there’ll be no sexual activity or nudity.

Your Guides For This Special Retreat

Tricia Karp 

I’ve had many titles over the years, including award-winning TV and radio journalist and presenter, business owner, best-selling author, executive coach, astrologer, corporate trainer, mother and fierce advocate for women’s power. I’m also a Tao Tantric Arts (sacred femininity) teacher and priestess.

Beyond titles, what matters most to me is redeeming the glory of the Feminine in a world that mostly doesn’t even know what that means.

I stand for our pain, silence, rage, body hatred, shame and disconnection… and our beauty, vulnerability, authenticity, sensuality and pleasure as the path back to our power.

I’ve worked with hundreds of women around the world, and presented to hundreds more. I’ve run sold-out workshops and retreats, and published two books, including an Amazon international number one best-seller. I’ve also lived a lot of life. I’m a one-woman show and a full-time single mum. I’ve navigated divorce, bouts of severe fatigue, doses of depression and anxiety, and the kind of crippling grief that made me question how the rest of the world could function normally around me. Each time I’ve risen from the ashes, fuelled by self-trust and a belief in my worth and who I’m here to be in this world.

I’m known for helping women to step into and own their power, and creating spaces filled with safety, support and so much love, where every woman can come to the majesty of her own truth and magnificence.

I’m blessed to live in Ubud, Bali, surrounded by the beauty of nature and a gentle culture that reveres its wise women.

Catherine Hunter

Like Tricia I’ve also worn many professional hats from marketing director to fashion designer and retail business owner. But I’ve also struggled with finding the balance in my health and wellness, juggling full-time work, raising two girls and running my own businesses.

For years I have tried every healthy eating program, alternative remedy and form of exercise to manage my eczema, stress and to stay fit. Hitting mid-life means you get to know your body and what works for you. I became a dedicated yogi and it’s now my saving grace. It brings a beautiful blend of mindfulness, soul and maintains flexibility and tone as you age.

As a modern woman, life is busy and taking time for yourself is hard. But the investment and reward you receive is a sense of focus and calm, and a happier more peaceful you.

I look forward to working with you each day to move through our Vinyasa flow that will bring you a greater awareness of your body, peace of mind and sense of living in the present and feeling grateful for every moment.


The retreat was magnificent, so spiritual, so divine, and the people, the connections, the synchronicity – everything! It’s unbelievable really, I’ve never experienced anything quite like that. It has been life-changing, it was inspiring, and I let my light shine.

~ Susan Ashby, From Here to There

It was amazing! A really safe space to dig deep. It was a very nourishing experience on a mental, spiritual and physical level. The bushwalking, the food, beautiful bed, surroundings, it all amazing. And it was so nice to be able to retreat every night as well and have that block of time away from my usual life.”

~ Kate Pembroke, Communications Consultant

This has been an amazing opportunity. The connections are so deep and so profound and the group of women who have been here are wonderful. I wouldn’t have been anywhere else, it’s just been a beautiful experience. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.”

~ Jo Tregear, Executive coach

I think that Tricia is an extraordinary facilitator and leader who has a capacity to create an experience for people where there’s safety and where people can go deep. Being on retreat has provided a space for things to bubble up and that’s been a really important part of it. Being with other women is a real opportunity to see that we’re all the same and doing the work together makes it easier to step forward because you’re really supported and that’s a beautiful thing.”

What an amazing retreat, what an amazing synergistic exercise in bringing me into my trust in myself. I really feel as a person I’ve been given the thumbs up, like go out there and do your thing, you’re ready, it’s all there for you, so an incredible, awesome retreat for me.”

~ Cyd Crossman, Artist

I decided to invest in a second program with Tricia after doing one of her powerful speaking workshops. I felt like I’d scratched the surface of something really important for me and I wanted to go deeper. By the end of the program I’d not only made new commitments to myself but I was living them. It’s not okay for me now to doubt myself, be silent, play small or dismiss my joy. Getting to know my inner wise woman has been a constant reassurance in my life. I’m indulging a personal focus on myself and honouring myself in that. I loved the connection from working with a respectful group of women. Tricia’s programs have been two of the best investments I’ve made in myself.”

~ Peta Dougherty, Business Owner

Working with Tricia is an experience like nothing I’ve done before. It wasn’t about professional development and it wasn’t about doing things a certain way. The success for each woman is based around the individual, that each person already has the power if they can access it. Tricia is an insightful, genuine and gifted facilitator and guide, supporting each person to access their own inner strength. Being among other women who are going through the same process brings out warmth, truth and comfort. It was amazing and not something I’ll forget. Working with Tricia enabled a real shift for me personally and for my family, and this has in turn created a ripple effect for other areas of my life.”
