January 18th and 19th

Do you have big plans to make 2020 your best year yet?

Are you setting up to make some big new year’s resolutions?


Are you like 80% of people who don’t last 30 days pursuing what you truly want?


Are you part of the 92% of people that never actually achieve what they set out to do at the beginning of each year?


It’s no surprise that these are the statistics. If it was as easy as saying you want something and then it happened, life would be very different.

NOW is your opportunity to create the perfect foundation to set yourself up for your best year yet!

Book your spot now and join Dan and Geoff on their 2-Day RESET2020 Urban Retreat in Newcastle on the 18th and 19th of January, 2020.

The powerful duo from Ascending Minds have created the ultimate experience for you to unload the stresses of the holiday season, recapture your true essence of being by connecting you back to your true self and the natural world, and uncovering your deep purpose and direction for the year ahead.

With Geoff’s vast experience in Vedic Meditation, Vedic Astrology and Sattva Yoga, and Dan’s background as a holistic health and lifestyle Coach, your time at RESET2020 will have you walking away with all the tools and practices you need to have your most centred, fulfilling and productive year to date.

Dan and Geoff combine the wisdom of 5000-year-old techniques with the latest science and peak performance health and coaching strategies and practices, to provide you with a comprehensive approach that will have you unlocking your unbounded potential in all areas of life.

When combined with the Ascending Minds ’Be in Flow’ Goal Setting blueprint, you’ll be dancing your way to your ideal life and begin reaping the rewards of launching your year with a solid foundation and crystal-clear clarity on where you are heading and what you need to do to get where you want to be.

Throughout the RESET2020 Urban Retreat, we focus on the five pillars to a happy, healthy and purposeful life, including movement, nutrition, meditation, sleep and progressive mindset. Each day is structured to make the most of our time together.

If you don’t have a current meditation practice, Geoff will teach you Vedic Meditation a technique that has changed so many live, he will take you through a ceremony where you will receive your own personalised Mantra and then teach you how to use it.   This technique is over 5000 years old, and once you have it, you don’t need apps or anything every again.  If you already have a Vedic Meditation practice you will receive an advanced technique to upgrade and deepen your daily practice.

Also, each attendee of RESET2020 will be given a one on one Vedic Astrology reading. This private reading will enable you to see your current life path, gain insight, understanding and direction on where you are heading, as well as receiving guidance towards finding your life’s purpose, and why your life has unfolded the way it has up to now.   These readings are an invaluable tool and source of information that holds the key to revealing what actions you need to take and aspects you need be aware of in order to remain on track to achieving your goals.

In addition, Dan will breakdown each of the pillars and facilitate you creating a holistic health plan and integration strategy that will allow you to access your true power and potential, whilst maintaining the energy to stay focused with inspired action.

Ascending Minds is a holistic peak performance program for the people who want to be hight performing individuals and we also specialise in working with the corporate sector and mining industry.

Combining peak performance coaching with ancient meditation and yogic practices, we have created a program that equips individuals, executives and employees with a range of techniques designed to reduce stress, increase productivity, improve wellbeing, and develop a progressive mindset.

Integrated at both an individual and holistic level, our practices can help you achieve:

  • Improved physical and emotional health
  • Better decision-making
  • Clearer communication
  • Increased mental clarity and intrinsic purpose-driven action
  • Reduced sick days
  • Increased overall workplace harmony


We are Geoff and Dan, two dynamic individuals who have come together to design and implement holistic corporate programs for the modern workplace.

With Geoff’s 30-plus years experience in the corporate sector in television, and Dan’s background in the mining and private construction sector, we cover both the blue collar and white collar workers and have a first-hand understanding of their pain points – both as staff and as executives and managers.

After sitting through many repetitive “off-sites” and “training days” which delivered lots of theory, but minimal or no practical techniques to actually implement positive change in our work or lives afterwards, we recognised the need to transform the traditional corporate program into something a lot more actionable.

With Ascending Minds, we create bespoke corporate programs that share the practical tools, techniques, and hacks that have taken us to the top of our fields, and show you how to actively integrate these into your life and workplace, and we are now offering this to individuals through our Urban Retreats who really want to take their life to the next level.

We’ve collated the best ancient knowledge from the East and the best scientific studies from the West, and combined them in such a way that the principles and techniques we provide can be seamlessly integrated into any business.


Ascending Minds offers a range of programs, retreats, and support sessions that combine peak performance coaching with ancient meditation and yogic practices. Our holistic approach also focuses on the improvement of health and wellness through the integration of diet, movement, rest and presence.

Each experience is designed to equip everyone, whether they are an individual, or executives and employees with a set of practical techniques and strategies to improve performance and productivity, reduce stress, develop a more progressive mindset, and inspire intrinsic purpose-driven action.
