We specialize in mental wellbeing through silence.
We take all technology away and ask people to move in silence throughout the day. Movement exercises, art projects and seated meditations are introduced to make the experience more profound. The reflection during silence for the participants is astounding. Stopping the chatter of the mind allows people to leave the retreat more focused and pay attention to their tasks. They are happy and often have breakthroughs in the mind that you would never think possible all because you sat in silence for a couple of days.
Team building and relationships amongst employees will become stronger as they feel a connection to their coworkers. Participants are so happy the silence is over they stop complaining when they speak and just feel grateful, focused and compassionate towards the other participants in the program. It is the ultimate team building exercise. Coworkers experience a remarkable journey together and it is amazing how close you can become to someone when you meditate in silence beside them.
The side effects of the retreat are often felt weeks and even months after leaving, and your employees will feel refreshed, focused and ready for what life has to offer them. Read more about the benefits of having a silent wellness retreat at your company.

“The weekend is guided by two lovely people Heather and Lezanne who not only provide a calm and grounded space to practice being in the moment in silence but have extensive knowledge of breathing techniques, meditation and yoga and also cook incredible vegan dishes. My experience at the silent retreat continues to help me be more in tune with myself and the universe through gratitude. I will definitely repeat.” Nikol Kollars, Actress, Silent Retreat June 2021.
