LIFE AND YOU KNOW IT..................

If success and happiness are your ultimate goals,

you’re in the right place.

Carren Smith has helped thousands of people across the globe transform their businesses and lives through her unique approach of ‘self leadership.’

Speaker, Author, Presenter, Survivor of the 2002 Bali bombing, her own suicidal thoughts and other personal tragedies, Carren Smith will show you how a shift in focus can morph even the stubbornest mindset.

Carren’s latest retreat and training program, The Effortless Self, challenges your deepest, inner most thoughts and beliefs about yourself, helps you to experience true success on EVERY levels - and find a purpose that is truly your own.

Through the Effortless Self, Carren teaches how to define and connect with your passions and true purpose, so that you can then grow, achieve and feel fulfilled… Once you find this true purpose, you allow yourself to grow and expand in a way that is natural, organic… EFFORTLESS.

  • Do you wish you could achieve more?
  • Do you sometimes, or even regularly, doubt your own abilities?
  • Is there an inner light inside you that is begging you to let it shine?

Carren has the answers that you’re looking for!  

The ‘Effortless Self’ arms you with the tools to bring forth the greatest possible version of yourself!

So, STOP living the life you think you should -  START focusing on the life you know you deserve – and BOOK TODAY!

You CAN achieve the life you’ve dreamed of. STOP procrastinating! The only person holding you back, is the one looking at you in the mirror!

"We are all the same... we are all seeking the same thing... everyone wants to fulfil the highest, truest, expression of yourself as a human being." Oprah Winfrey.

If you’re still reading, it’s probably safe to assume that you are searching for an answer… That you’re tired of hearing that voice in your head telling you that you’re not good enough - and that you’re ready to reach your full potential – you just need a leg up!

It’s likely that your dealing with some personal demons, some painful memories or even some guilt or fear you’re carrying around, that you feel is holding you back. This state of mind can be overpowering and exhausting – and it’s a feeling that Carren Smith is all too familiar with.

 It’s ok to feel like these things are weighing you down – in fact, it’s a good thing! Acknowledging that there is something missing from your life is a huge step. It means that you’re ready to discover what it is that you CAN achieve and how to go about doing it!

You mightn’t even be sure what it is that’s going to help you feel that sense of fulfilment and purpose. And that’s more than ok too. That, among so many other things, is what The Effortless Self will help you discover.

It’s time now, to picture something…    

This is where The Effortless Self invites you.

It’s simply a matter of taking the first step.

"I have been where you are now. I have experienced the same feelings of doubt and discouragement – of hurt and guilt.

Through my own experiences, I will help you find your way out, to take you to that next level of life that you can hear calling out your name.

To the level where a whole new world of possibilities will open up for you and self-doubt and negative thoughts are a thing of the past."

You just have to be willing to move forward.

"Expansion is Inevitable, Suffering is Optional" Carren Smith



“Stop looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfilment, for validation, security, or love – you have a treasure within that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer” Eckhart Tolle.

Get ready to discover :

  • A life of truth, ease, freedom and abundance  - and rid yourself of labels, misguided beliefs and habits.
  • What it means to build your future, your career, success, love, laughter and bliss through effortless practices – and how to break down walls of negativity and self-sabotage
  • Challenge everything you 'know' about yourself to discover a fresh perspective and new possibility
  • Find true balance in your life through joy, confidence and empowerment
  • Dive deep into the mindset of Ancient Gurus and Modern Mystics as you set your sites on a path of creativity and self-expression
  • Relax into sumptuous experiences of indulgence, enlightenment, experimentation and rejuvenation
  • Surround yourself with others eager to expand their hearts, minds and Souls through miraculous adventure


“A fulfilling life is different to each person. You have to acknowledge your dreams and not just wait for life to happen, and opportunities to come knocking at your door” Joan Lunden

Close your eyes and imagine getting up in the morning. You go through your regular routine; shower, breakfast, coffee/tea (depending what you’re into) – as you reach the bathroom and look in the mirror, rather than seeing the ‘regular you’ that you’re disappointed with or disheartened by –picture seeing an ‘extraordinary you,’ a YOU that you can’t help but be madly in love with and proud of.

THIS is the you that CAN be revealed.

You CAN be THAT person in the mirror.

You can feel pride over discouragement!

The Effortless Self Program Modules

Session One
Effortless Awareness

This lesson will help you to look inward to discover your awareness. When we explore and sharpen our awareness, we find that growth and expansion happens effortlessly and we begin to create our lives the way we want it to be rather than life being a random set of happenings of which we have no control or say.

The powerful content of this lesson is designed to help you understand the nature of inner awareness, why it’s the most vital key to potency in every area of your life and how you can maintain awareness and observe your experiences throughout the day.

Session Two
Effortless Love

By far, love and relationships (along with money) are the most challenging and elusive qualities in life and while for some, our ability attract them may be potent, our sustainability is always fraught with turmoil. 

In this lesson we question the meaning of love along with its external origin. We dive deep into the experience and expression of love and dissect its relationship to expectation, projection and needs.

Could it be possible that we’ve never truly experienced love before? Could it be that we’ve become so accustomed to our conditioning that we don’t know the difference between love and fear? Let’s find out together!

Session Three
Effortless Money

If you had a relationship with a human, that is similar to the relationship you have money….. Do you think they would stick around? 

Neediness, desperation, worry, anxiety, drama, manipulation and desire….. These are all words that have been associated with money and it’s time to unlock the truth behind the Law of Attraction and manifestation. You have been maneuvered into a thought system that benefits everything and everyone but YOU. Beware…. The Exposé is on the way!   

Session Four
Effortless Health

When we look at the body for health and wellbeing, we see ourselves in parts. Our lungs, our heart, our leg, toes, arm etc…. But the body is designed as a holistic vessel requiring harmony from head to toe.

In this lesson we explore health through Eastern Philosophies and uncover the Source of illness as well as what can be done to restore the body to a condition of lean, light, agile and unified.

Disclaimer: Nothing in this lesson is intended to replace medical or psychological advice. 

Session Five
Effortless Purpose

Living a life of meaning and contribution is the driving force behind most people’s pursuit of happiness and it is not until this is achieved, that happiness is experienced

In this lesson we discuss the very nature of human purpose along with its relationship to happiness and fulfillment. We explore how today’s hectic lifestyle is the primary thief of purpose and how your inner tutor (intuition) is the way ‘in’ to your greatest experiences.

Session Six
Effortless Family

Raising a family is one of the fundamental gifts of being human along with the most challenging of assignments. To find family harmony can be difficult with conflicting priorities, personalities and puberty!

In session six, we explore The Work of Byron Katie and introduce the most potent parenting tool available today. With ease, effortless love and freedom afforded to each member of the family, the dynamic is enhanced and the experiences are transformed almost instantaneously!

Session Seven
Effortless Expansion

As part of the Universal intelligence that beats your heart and breaths you, we give you powerful tools to find yourself infinitely connected to humanity and to nature itself.

Transforming your world from being ‘outside in’, to ‘inside out’, your connection and involvement with all that exists will become your primary source of inspiration and creativity. Recognising that YOU are the centre of the Universe and your world is a construct of your own making leaves you free to change what you’d like, and keep that which serves you. Knowing the difference between what is you, and what is NOT you, is the key to Effortless Expansion!

How is this program different to other self development programs?
The Effortless Self is completely unique as our approach assumes the Self requires no ‘development’, instead, it requires recognition and awareness and in return, life becomes ‘effortless’. There is no more ‘hard work’ to do to achieve the life you desire. There is no more goal setting, no more ambition, no more competing, no more struggle street. Discovering the path to an Effortless Self is the very key that unlocks the results you’ve been thirsting for by using the Law of Attraction, Reciprocity, and every other Universal Law you’ve been drawing on to create more of what you want. It’s time to do it Effortlessly!
