REveal & REwild: Borneo May 2017

About This Event

Join us on an inclusive 8 day / 7 night retreat to the exotic Malaysian Island of Borneo:

A percentage of what your tourism dollar goes into is SIMCA's conservation fund to sustain the patrolling of boats by locally trained wardens, supports the turtle hatchery, and aid in other marine conservation efforts. And another percentage goes to save the Rainforests of Borneo and to help prevent the extinction of Orangutans!

4D/4N in the Jungle Wetlands Resort

Time to REwild! We will be in a quieter area of the Lower Kinabatangan Floodplain, an exclusive hide-away from the main tourist hotspots of Sukau and Bilit. The resort is surrounded by secondary forest reserves, and is located within beautiful nipah and mangrove vegetation.

Apart from the river cruises, you can spend time relaxing and observing nature from your chalet, a myriad of birds and monkeys, such as silver leaf langurs, maroon langurs, hose langurs, and wild orangutan are regularly spotted within the area. Raised boardwalks are available for night walks and morning strolls. During this time we'll have our jungle survival skills course and provide intensives from our specialized program for a Pain-free life.

4D/3 N Tropical Island Resort

Lankayan is a small tropical island in the Sulu Sea, about one and a half hours by boat from the port of Sandakan, and sits within a large marine protected area with excellent diving. Unpopulated and circled by a white sandy shore, Lankayan Island is also exquisitely private, perfect for anyone seeking peace and tranquility.

This resort area known as SIMCA – Sugud Islands Marine Conservation Area, is historic nesting ground for the endangered Green and Hawksbill turtles. SIMCA plays a crucial role in enforcing a no-take zone, protecting the turtle eggs, and monitoring long-term environmental changes in coral cover, fish life, water quality, and sedimentation.

A percentage of what your tourism dollar goes into is SIMCA's conservation fund to sustain the patrolling of boats by locally trained wardens, supports the turtle hatchery, and aid in other marine conservation efforts.

Every chalet has its own private balcony with direct access to the beach. Delicious fresh meals and snacks are available throughout the day, with an emphasis on locally caught seafood, and evening barbecues held at the bar.

If you are an avid diver, Lankayan Island is wonderful. Through the professional drive center, go on three boat dives a day, or simply buddy up and dive the excellent house reef straight from the shore. Non-divers can keep busy with snorkeling, kayaking, or visiting the turtle hatchery.

      Beware of upcoming retreat

    Sacred Dimension in Peru is where a dear friend lost her life due to the negligence of the shaman/staff, Alyssan Balmforth. Please do your research and ensure that when you enter vulnerable states that you are guided by individuals who have the sense of responsibility and integrity to do so.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
