SOAR - align, be brave, be boundless

A night of powerful and dynamic speakers, each of whom have taken the leap to align their reality with their passions; their soul work. Come along and hear real stories to inspire and influence change in your heart. Here’s a little about our guest speakers:

Abby Rees is PunkPDs Director, a self-confessed ‘education junkie’, University Lecturer, Education and Empowerment Writer, Behaviour and Change Specialist, Executive Meta-Coach and artistic thinker. Energy, Excellence and Tenacity are not mere words on PunkPD's banner, they capture Abby's drive and personality!

Thriving on new challenges to design for education and change, Abby leads with a level of energy that earned her the nickname '240' (240 Volt) in 2008 from her former colleagues. With the tenacity of a Rottweiler, Abby lives and breathes her design projects, providing her clients with a commitment to excellence that is unparalleled.

Anthea Cahill - aka the chai girl has been living her dream, selling chai to other chai lovers for the last 9 years. But before that she was stuck. Maybe you can relate? Do you ever feel like your selling your soul? Like you just KNOW there should be more to life but your not quite sure what or how? That’s exactly how Anthea used to feel. Until one day in a tiny teahouse in the Czech Republic she stumbled upon chai and her life as she knew it changed for ever.

Samantha Nolan-Smith supports women to become more visible in their careers and in their lives. Samantha will speak about the intersection between taking radical responsibility for your life and being real about the systemic inequalities that exist in our society. She’ll discuss overcoming the internalised patriarchy that keeps us from being seen and heard in the world. She’ll talk about what visibility blocks are and how they show up for women. Plus Samantha will share some easy to use techniques for clearing out any visibility blocks you might come up against in your own life.

For the last session of the evening we’ll be hosting a panel session where our SOUL founders will join our guests for a Q&A session - bring your questions along!

And as always, we’ll be fundraising for local charities. For all animal lovers, $5 from every ticket sale will be donated to Little Oak Sanctuary (Braidwood), a not-for-profit association that offers sanctuary to animals in need while promoting compassion for all animals through education and cruelty-free living. 

And finally, we’ve decided to honour the life of Connie from Love Your Sister by running a raffle with incredible prizes to be won! All proceeds from the raffle will be donated directly to LYS. Prizes have been generously donated by our sponsors: Birdsnest, Brookfarm and Real Chai. Bring your coins along!!

Tickets are only $40 which includes: 

  • a glass pf bubbly
  • scrumptious food in the heated courtyard starting from 7pm
  • generous gift bags 
  • a raffle with amazing prizes you don’t want to miss out on! 

We can't wait to see you there!
