2-days to Simply Be.


Digital Detox.

No more inputs or processing.

Time out to simply pause and be quiet.

Unwind from the year-end busyness and festivities.

A little space to gain some perspective on life.

Tune in to what's important for you.


Silence. Meditation.

Breathing. Journaling. Restorative Yoga.

Peaceful Nature. Stunning views. Great food.

Space for the emergence of what nourishes your Soul
and uplifts your Spirit.


  Return to Source.

Take a step back for a moment,
a sacred pause, let silence be your friend,
and let your Soul catch up with you


This is an intimate small group experience, allowing you space to feel the support of community as you relax into being yourself.



We put agendas, computers and phones away, and attune to stillness.

Slow pace.

We slow down, to rest and digest, to hear the sounds of Nature.

Present Moment.

Compassion and gentleness in the now, embracing the goodness that is.


Nothing more. Nothing less. Welcoming authentic Being. 

Plug back in to your Source ...


When you are fully resourced life flows with more ease and joy.


Quality time for you.

A little rest, relaxation, and restoration.

ReSourcing. Filling up your cup.

Immersed in nature.

Being together, not too much, but just enough.

Tapping into the authentic joy of being alive.

It's time to prioritise what really matters and create the conditions for your Soul's light to shine.

Listen to life

The answers are already there. You just have to ask the right questions and be available to listen.
