COCOON: Winter Retreat 2023

Friday 6 January - Sunday 8 January

This body-and-soul nourishing retreat invites softening, surrendering, un-doing.


For everyone who can already feel deep within their bones that they could use some cocooning time to unwind, rest deep, and recharge.

Winter invites us inward. Although there may be few signs of visible growth, so much is happening underneath the surface. When we accept Winter’s invitation it can help us process the year that's passed, integrate its lessons, and recalibrate ourselves. It can guide us back to who we are. In the stillness and the dark, you will finally be able to hear our heart’s whispers again.


This retreat is the embodiment of Winter’s invitation - an invitation to, like the chrysalis courageously emerging from the cocoon, remember the essence and potential of who you are. Ever-changing, already whole. Both human and soul.


Reconnect with your own energy, with your values and your dreams. Empty yourself from the excess, so that you can breathe in the essential.


You will intentionally create space – physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically – to let the year to come unfold with less effort, and more ease. Connect with, and rest in the knowing that everything you need is already right there.


Present and alive inside of you, just waiting to emerge.
