Charity Healthcare Heartbeat are proud to partner with immersive retreats & experiences organisation Discover a New Path, to further support the mental health and wellbeing of healthcare and emergency services workers.

The pressures on our healthcare sector have reached unprecedented levels, impacting the wellbeing of vital healthcare and emergency service workers across the nation. One of the key issues is the increased burnout experienced by many workers. To prevent and counteract the repercussions of burnout, healthcare workers need to have access to opportunities that allow them to recharge their bodies and minds, and develop tools to be better equipped to deal with the challenges they face daily.

Discover A New Path is operated by Facilitator Alyce Seneca, Certified Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner, Certified Hypnotherapist and Cacao Ceremonialist.

“Our retreats & experiences encourage participants to step out of the ordinary, connect with their inner nature and discover a world of new perspectives,” shares Alyce.

“We incorporate local culture and off the unbeaten track locations while also embracing nature and spirituality in our journeys. Connecting with your inner nature can improve mental health outcomes, including reduced stress and anxiety, improved mood, reduced symptoms of depression, improved cognitive function, and increased resilience.”

Through Healthcare Heartbeat, Pulse Members will have access to Discover a New Path’s multiple programs. This includes the Cacao Ceremonial Journey; a transformative 2.5 hour self-care experience designed to release stress and promote holistic wellbeing. During the Cacao Ceremony, participants can acknowledge and address uncomfortable emotions with acceptance and self-compassion. This program offers numerous benefits, including a safe space for reflection, increased presence, and reduced stress.

In addition to the Cacao Ceremonial Journey, the ‘Find Your Centre’ half-day retreat within SA will be offered. This retreat will combine various practices all aimed at supporting the transition from a “fight or flight” sympathetic state to a restorative “rest and digest” state.

For those seeking a more profound and transformative experience, tailored three to four day Wellness Retreats in SA, QLD, or Bali will also be offered for groups, so that participants have the opportunity to disconnect from the demands of daily life and reconnect with oneself.
