Medium to high fitness level recommended. You are most welcome to come along, even if you aren't super fit. But keep in mind you might have to sit some of the walks out.

This retreat is for those who want more than just a holiday and more than just a retreat. This is a perfect combination of both. Connect with like-minded people, laugh together, overcome challenges together, and learn how to conquer the mind.

- A life changing experience, that will shift something big for you and how you view things, empowering you to take that next step.
