The last 3 years have seen him transform his body, his mind and life. He decided that fat and 40 was not an option, weighing in at 127kg and the age of 37 and after beating severe anxiety and bouts with depression from a young age, Benny set out to change his life and mindset without all the bells n whistles and quick fix solutions. Instead choosing exercise, health and fitness to shape his body, mind and a newfound love for life.

During this journey Benny has become a leading expert in the health and fitness industry. He has lost 45kg, completing his very own amazing body transformation and has since competed in an international bodybuilding competition. He has helped others reach their own body transformation goals, leading to them winning weight-loss challenges and preparing for fitness competitions.

Benny still enjoys travel, music, and nutritious food and lives a healthy happy life. Benny’s eyes are now set firmly on helping other people, just like him, reach their potential to lose weight and live a longer more fulfilling life.

Benny Owen along with partner Leilani Gaze, are the international authors of “Switch To Slim” and are ready to help make a global change one kilo/pound at a time. They live on the South East Coast of Queensland, Australia.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

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.
