We will provide you with a nurturing environment where you will be guided, encouraged and supported in the release of physical, emotional and energetic blocks, healing from pain and trauma, and letting go of limiting beliefs. All this with the shared intention of helping you live your very best life.
While on this holistic retreat, we will set in motion the various steps required to reset your body and restore your vitality, while reinforcing your connection to your higher self. We will talk and laugh, connect and explore, as we bring about healing and growth at the deepest level. We will also provide you with the knowledge, inspiration and tools required to continue your journey well beyond this gathering and into your daily life. A life to which you are sure to return with a deeper sense of peace, joy, love, gratitude, purpose and fulfillment.
This retreat forms part of a 90 Day Transformation Programme in which you can literally create a new you between 90 and 365 days! Your team of dedicated retreat facilitators will share with you how to do this and you will receive ongoing support on your journey for 3 months after you have departed.

All meals are specially prepared for you by our Doctor of Nutrition. Made entirely from scratch using the freshest, locally sourced organic ingredients, with menus tailored to your specific health needs and tastes. As we nourish the body, we nourish the soul.
Every morning, after breakfast, we will embark on an inward journey of discovery, growth and awakening. Deepening our connection with God/Source/The Universe (whichever description you are most comfortable with) and opening us to the realm of infinite possibility that exists when body, mind and soul are brought into alignment. There will also be quiet time, where you can simply process, absorb and connect.

After each morning’s inward, soul-deep processing, we will venture “outward”, exploring the very best that the Garden Route has to offer. We will stroll along endless beaches, walk through the ancient rain forests, and seek out Knysna’s Small 5 – the Knysna Loerie, the Knysna dwarf chameleon, the Phantom moth, the Brenton Blue butterfly, and Knysna’s spirit animal, the Knysna seahorse. All the while deepening our discussions, processing the morning’s inward journey and preparing for the next day’s transformative interaction.
