Living Mastery


Living Mastery - The Beginnings

  Mastery provides a metaphysical paradigm that dissolves the fear of change, the unease of the unknown and the dread of moving towards an undefined future.

Mastery allows you to take a look at yourself from a fresh perspective and enables you to dissolve those things that no longer serve you. 

You learn that your thoughts are limiting you, robbing you of energy that can be put to other uses. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a still, peaceful mind? 

Mastery will train you to become aware of what you think, say and do so that you can learn to manage the three and thereby manage your energy. 

You will start to discover the beliefs that liberate and the ones that limit you.  

The Art of Conscious Living

 Living Mastery acknowledges the most important level of development: the foundation.           Its aim is to guide students along a journey of self-realisation from Unconscious Creation (where most people are at) to Conscious Creation. To begin with, students are exposed to numerous topics, which reveal the patterns, habits and default programs of everyday thinking and their outcomes. Awareness is the key to all of life's issues and Living Mastery brings a vast storehouse of understanding and awareness for each student.

The Main Aim of Living Mastery

The primary premise is that the Conscious Mind is like a garden. The teacher is the master gardener of the different  layers of  layers of the mind. Deep within the  every garden lies richness and decay, which determine the basic health of the garden. Living Mastery is the optimum environment to apply various techniques, exercises and processes, and instruct students in weeding, preparation, seeding and general care of their individual gardens so they can become their own master gardener.  In a nutshell . . . but it goes deeper than that.

Living Mastery Environment

These courses are run over a number of weeks and usually at a comfortable venue chosen by the teacher. Students are encouraged to participate at every session, as the format of the workshop builds momentum and energy each week facilitating rapid change and development. As the epiphanies begin to take place and the students feel more positive about themselves, some of the deeper knowledge is revealed, leading to self sustainable internal transformation.  If one is open and willing the changes can continue after the course has ended.  

Processes Of Living Mastery

A number of useful techniques, exercises and meditations are a part of the Living Mastery Journey.  They are designed to reveal patterns and assist students in identifying which thoughts and emotions are draining their energy. They then can take steps to reclaim that energy. The more energy they free up the more elegantly they can create the life they want. When they eliminate what no longer serves them they can create a space for something. magnificent. Life was not supposed to be this difficult. It can be so much more, if you have the tools and the willingness.

 Join us for an exciting and thought-provoking 2 day adventure into the relationships 

between mothers and daughters.  

Nicole Dargie


 In this life I am passionate about sharing with you what I have learnt and integrated, there have been times where I have had my butt kicked by my teachers and mentors to ‘get out of my head’, and yoga has helped me to shift more into my body and heart, to soften into vitality. Being in the beauty industry for 25 years has showed me how to look and feel good inside and out, but also that there's a need and a desire by women to seek love based upon our appearance. It is my mission to bust this beauty myth and provide a fun and safe space for you and your daughter to transform this into authentic beauty from within.

As a mother nothing has taught me more about being present and look within than my daughter, when she came along it was the beginning of an enormous time of challenge & change for me personally and spiritually which has lead me to do the work I am now doing.

Life is an adventure so come and explore with us and hopefully I’ll see you on retreat so we can draw that beauty and power from within, to take it and shine it all over the place!  

Jaylee Balch


Hey there!

My exploration of so many fields of service has led me to one distinguishing and irrefutable fact . . . that there is nothing in this world more soul inspired than my relationship with my own daughter. Equally distinguishing, was the need for me to gain a platform of trust with my daughter, a place where we could share our gifts and nourish each other in our own unique way. To do this, I undertook many journeys over rocky roads and through dark corridors until I understood the basic desire within every person - the need to be loved . . . to be loving and to be lovable. 


There are a number of retreats coming up in 2019. So, take your time, look below, and learn all there is to know about me. I hope you enjoy my site and take a moment to drop me a line.
