About The Teacher

A daughter. A doula 

 You know that feeling when you find the thing your soul has been needing all along? Well thats how I felt when I completed my Doula Course. For so much of my life I followed paths that wern't really mine to follow but they made me feel like I fitted in. I'm a doula because I want mothers to feel supported, I want families to feel supported and I want your birth choices to be respected.

I was abandoned as a new born and as I do this work I reach back and heal my mothers wounds too.

I work at both Mowbray Maternity hospital and Hanover Park M.O.U as well as seeing private clients. When I started thinking about becoming a Doula, I really wanted to work specifically in public hospitals in South Africa and Africa, to support especially mothers who would otherwise be birthing alone. I deeply believe every women who gives birth should feel empowered and respected in all her choices what ever those might be.

I feel into each woman I meet and figure out which is the bast way to work with them, sometimes it’s somatic movement, sometimes it’s dance, sometimes it’s guided visualisations and sometimes it’s simply just sitting and holding space for all of you. 

In the last while I have been feeling called to co-create inclusive retreat spaces, so here we are, let’s grow together.

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. 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.
