Restorative Retreat – October 12th to 18th, 2018

Stillness, Peace, Relaxation

From the 12th to 18th October 2018, I will be hosting a fully Restorative Retreat in South Africa for individuals who are ready for some time out from the ‘Always-On’ culture of a busy life. This is an opportunity to press the PAUSE button and to move from exhausted or overwhelmed to restoring and sustaining your WELLBEING and BALANCE.

If you are thinking “I don’t have time to slow down”, then this is definitely for you!

This is an intimate retreat for 3 to 6 individuals only, who are serious about rest and restoration and committed to shifting unhealthy patterns which can often lead to stress and burnout.

Here is your opportunity to:

  • Reconnect with nature and yourself
  • Build self-awareness about your patterns
  • Learn how to self-regulate stress
  • Embed healthier and more sustainable ways of working & living
  • Recharge your energy

Join me in the beautiful region of the Waterberg just outside BelaBela north of Johannesburg, South Africa. You will be staying in a private house on the five star Zebula Golf & Spa Estate and Nature Reserve.

This is your TIME OUT and a doorway to reconnecting with yourself and what’s important through nature, stillness and a combination of wellbeing coaching, relaxation & restorative practices, energy healing and meditation.

Here’s what one happy client has to say:

“Perfect timing, perfect pace, nourishing environment (the company, animals, nature, house, gentleness of everything), must repeat (frequently!!) bucket list item, hope to join you in Zimbali next time (or do both!!) :D”

– R.B, United Kingdom

The animals in the nature reserve are free roaming, they often come straight to the house. Don’t worry there are no large predators, but here’s a glimpse of what you might see in this short video: Zebula Giraffe
