Building on the “Cutting the Threads that Bind Retreat” as your foundation to let go and release….it is time to shift your life another notch by letting this powerful Mastermind Retreat and Iona work her magic on you all over again.

Mastermind is an intimately invited group of people who are committed to looking forward. Facilitating exponential growth in business and personal development – both for yourself and each other. Challenging one other with kindness and compassion. By raising the bar and creating poignant and purposeful goals, we brainstorm solutions and interact with each other with total honesty, respect and love.

Thus each participant acts as a catalyst for everyone’s growth. Whilst being your greatest champion of support they may also play devil’s advocate to support you in navigating changes in your life. Imagine the effect of sharing time and space with other women who are masters in equal but different ways to you.

15 of you have experienced Iona with me over the past 18 months….and this retreat house has space for 6  women so you might want to decide pretty soon if this is for you in April 2024.
Arrive Saturday 13th April (meaning you can prob just take Friday afternoon off to get here in time)
Leave Thursday 20th April 
You can also stay an extra two nights to integrate quietly on Iona, looking after your own food, but staying on in the same house!

The inherent power of a mastermind group?

  • Challenged with love via the synergistic energy of an intimate group

Each person’s complete participation is key. This is not a retreat to sit back and learn – it involves participating and the giving and receiving of ideas, experience and energy to support each other in all areas of life.

This is not therapy or even coaching this is a unique and exclusive forum to ‘mastermind your life.’

The collaborative power of intention!


If you have been invited by Kate- then you are eligible. You need to have completed some work with Kate before this will benefit your life!
YOU WILL NEED TO PARTICIPATE: On top of a small amount of helping with the meal prep outlined below, you are also encouraged to contribute ‘something’ to the retreat process. What do you just love sharing – what is your skill?

This can be as simple as reading a couple of poems to us, leading a swim, baking a delicious cake for afternoon tea, hosting a yoga session on the beach, a fun game or sharing a life-changing technique you have learned over the years. The idea is to help you contribute to the experience and share from your heart. Maximum 90 minutes! Remember – everyone can do “something” so try and embrace this challenge in some form.

Kate will be facilitating and participating in all the powerful mastermind sessions and holding the sacred container for the retreat. She will also organise all the food, as well as handle all the breakfasts and your welcome meal. Read below for more on how food works.

With your input, the retreat will be curated into a beautiful format by Kate


Just up the lane from the ferry landing stage on the beautiful Isle of Iona is Erraid, a traditional, whitewashed house that has been beautifully refurbished to provide all 21st-century comforts in a traditional setting. At the center of the island in Baile Mor Village, this beautiful retreat home makes it perfect to get anywhere on the island with ease.
North Shore is 20 and Columba’s Bay is just 40 minute’s walk away.

The house has been furnished and equipped with great care and skill in a manner which perfectly complements the style of the house. A sunny porch with handy storage and seating welcomes you. The spacious sitting room has a beamed ceiling and cosy, comfortable seating that is centred round the open fire. With windows on three sides and lovely views of the Abbey, the room is lovely and bright by day and warm and welcoming by night.

The traditional dining room is partially open to the well-equipped and fully up-to-date kitchen so the cook doesn’t have to miss out on all the fun. The large range cooker means that cooking will be easy and having the useful utility room housing some of the appliances keeps the main space uncluttered. A family bathroom complete the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, two doubles and two twin rooms, that are all pleasantly presented in a cosy modern style.
There is also a modern, tiled wet room-style shower room.

Outside there is an enclosed fairy garden to the rear with a bench where you can sit out and admire the beautiful Abbey.

The house was originally built in 1939 by the retiring lighthouse keeper of Erraid and takes its name from the nearby island, which is where David Balfour thought himself marooned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Kidnapped’ and nearly starved, until two locals told him he could wade across to the mainland at low tide. Not one of his finer moments!


This retreat follows a different format to your last one at the Green Shed.
I will handle breakfasts and the first night’s meal for your arrival.
The group will take turns setting table / clearing up after each meal – shared and easy!
You will cook one family-style evening meal and assemble one easy lunch over the retreat, along with a buddy.
Everyone chips in so we can have fun with it! Zero stress.
Lunches will be a combination of delicious soup, or at The Rookery cafe/hotels.
ALL costs of meals regardless of where eaten, are INCLUDED!
Kate will order and buy in all the food required for the week – so just your loving heart and hands are needed for some limited meal prep!

Our final evening celebration will be a feast at the local hotel, complete with wine of course. Think kelp-fed lamb, locally caught fresh fish and delicious vegetarian food from the organic garden.

Please give advanced notice of allergies etc, to ensure island supplies.


The iconic Iona Abbey – for pilgrims from all corners of the earth

Days consist of quiet contemplation alongside group connection and mastermind process

We will make the most of the island and the weather alongside the energy and needs of the group.

Expect some dedicated silence built into the day, group process work, alone time, and delicious shared meals for connection and heartfelt chats. This is a retreat after all … which means slowing yourself down and having plenty of time and space to BE.


No money can buy what I’ve experienced and learned from this Mastermind group and process as it opened my eyes, ears and most importantly my mind to a different level. All the wonderful elements of my self-awareness journey over the past five years suddenly made sense to me. I have learned so much about myself, but more importantly about other people in the process. We all have to work through different issues in our personal and business lives. Seeing others solving problems, sharing successes and sharing their dreams helps one to look at your own life and set goals and commit oneself to your these goals.
BT – Agency Owner and Entrepreneur

I can’t tell you how fired up I am for a new growth area in my business that I hadn’t even contemplated. I’m motivated, excited, stretched and flying! Maybe there is something that you are not seeing, that someone else can pinpoint for you straight away that will change/enhance / grow / improve/nurture what you doing at the moment. I can’t express enough how amazing it is to know that I’m accountable with other people that care about me and where I’m going. I can only thank Kate and my ‘Board of Directors’ for kicking my butt to become a force to be reckoned with in my dynamic business. The plodding along approach that I was used to was a waste of time. This energy is vital to shift me to the next level.
Georgie Colling – owner of Rafia Solutions

My Mastermind coffee / breakfast / wine meets have become a highlight and an important part of me keeping myself in check in terms of where I’m at and staying committed to doing what I said I was going to do by when I said I was going to do it! I also have the gift and privilege of my own huge learning and insight through the open and generous sharing of my group and their experiences in their lives. Both good and bad. The friendships that I have found and grown in the Mastermind space are profoundly authentic and I have no doubt will continue forever with or without Mastermind”.
Brad Shorkend – leadership coach and partner in SEED ACCELERATOR – URBAN EVEREST THINK DIFFERENTLY

Leading a hectic life like most people, there is very seldom an opportunity to focus on things that are and should be treated as important. With MM I use the opportunity to do that and set that time as a priority for me… and suddenly I could break through in areas with interaction with my family where previously it looked like it was going to be impossible. Due to this I have managed to achieve an ambitious amount of goals in a 3-month period.

“From the moment we met, it was an instant connection of like-minded, purpose-driven business owners. It’s an exciting platform for unpacking any possible, perceived obstacles, and supporting and empowering one another in a non-obtrusive, safe and caring environment. Kate knew how to combine the personalities, ambitions and core values of  each of us to create a hub of powerful exchange. The gifts of Mastermind groups are endless and I believe that it is a progressive, powerful way of catapulting people into even greater places in our lives – on every level!”
Bonita G – Keynote Speaker, TV Presenter Sydney

Mastermind has been a great opportunity for me to take the necessary steps in growing my business. The support and camaraderie you get from the group is wonderful while they gently but strongly push you out of your comfort zone towards greater success and growth. It also keeps you focused on your goals in a way that ensures positive forward momentum. You also know that there is a group of people always looking out for opportunities for you – like ambassadors for your business. I love every minute of Mastermind and have gained so much more than ever expected!
