About the Retreat


Step away from the day to day, immerse yourself in nature, get grounded, detox and switch off.

If you feel that you are constantly switched on, ready for the next thing, the next issue/problem or you feel over-whelmed, exhausted or suffer from chronic illness and live with gut issues then this retreat is for you.These symptoms are often associated with the activation of the part of your nervous system responsible for the "fight-or-flight" response, which is triggered by stress.

Our exclusive 3-day retreat is designed specifically for those juggling the demands of work, family, and personal life. If you’ve found yourself overwhelmed, exhausted, and yearning for a change, this retreat offers the perfect escape to reset, rejuvenate, and reconnect with yourself.


In the hustle and bustle of managing a business, raising a family, and maintaining relationships, it's easy to lose sight of your own well-being. This retreat provides a sanctuary where you can step away from your daily routine and immerse yourself in an environment dedicated to disconnection and rest .


This retreat is not for everyone (although in today's modern world everyone needs this). This retreat has been designed to give your sympathetic nervous system a break.

The Disconnect | Rest | Connect retreat program is 100% designed to deactivate the sympathetic nervous system and activate the parasympathetic nervous system to have you walk away in 3 days feeling completely refreshed and connected.

Here are some of the ways you will achieve this:

Meditation, Physical Activity, Vegetarian Diet - GF | DF | Lectin free & low FODMAP, Fresh Cold Pressed Juice, Adequate Sleep, Removal of Distractions, Digital Detox, Social Connection, Voice Activation, Story Telling, Nature Exposure and more...

Over the 3 days you will be incorporating practices throughout the day to consciously give your sympathetic nervous system a break, allowing your body and mind to recover from stress and enhancing your overall well-being.

You will leave behind the stresses of daily life and embrace the tranquility of a peaceful retreat setting. No work calls, no deadlines, just pure disconnection from your usual pressures.

You will rest and recharge your body and mind with organised activities facilitated by experts to completely calm your nervous system down.

If your quality of life is impacted by gut health issues, then you can relax.

You will enjoy nutritious meals that nourish and energise you without leaving you bloated and gassy. All meals will be prepared with your gut health and well-being in mind.
