About This Event

A forgotten land found far away from the big city lights, where we dreamt of barefooted children running ‘farm-land free’ a place where we could connect back to the peace of nature.The Farmstead is ensconced between heaven and earth where the mountains of Franschhoek and waterfalls meet. You will find a carefully curated cultivation of luxury cottages, a riverside deck, walks, orchards, trees, chickens and cows anchors a land where soil regeneration, restorative growth and organic togetherness emerges.

The old farm cottages, with their original footprints, have been rejuvenated using reclaimed and farm-found objects, cleverly sewn together to construct a ‘farm stay luxe’ self catering experience. Here you leave behind the clutter of the unused, and find peace in a purpose built space, a space with a touch of sparkle….

During this 7 day retreat we have created a program that is focused on expanding your consciousness and energy. We aim to provide you with a magnificent 7days of truly becoming aware of yourself and others, exploring the layers within and understanding your potential. We have incorporated yoga techniques with meditation, gentle movement, neuroscientific stress management techniques and practical hands on body formulas to provide you with the ultimate mind, body and spirit rejuvenation.

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside awakes” – Carl Jung

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
