About this event

An Emergence of Self - Finding Stillness

“Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.”

– Lao Tzu

Come mid-year, you’re invited to hit the pause button to journey into your inner world.

As part of our An Emergence of Self series, and set in an intimate, soothing enclave with calming nature-filled surrounds, our three-day soul-reviving retreat takes you right to the core of your being in search of stillness.

With kindred spirits and an endless sea of flora and green for company, re-align, re-group and re-invigorate yourself with intentional, heart-centered embodiment practices, nourishing meals, and the magic that inner silence brings.

Learn the art of letting go, non-attachment and awareness, then embrace your own process of emergence as you integrate inner discoveries into your outer world.


Retreat Space & Lodging

The retreat will take place at a restored 100-year old black and white house located within Labrador’s lush nature reserve – Villa Samadhi. At every corner of this quiet enclave, you’ll find safe and nurturing spaces conducive for you to take the journey within. At the end of each day, recuperate within the comforts of your room located in this hidden sanctuary.


Guest chefs on site will serve up a curation of nourishing recipes, using fresh, quality ingredients laden with nature’s goodness and sourced sustainably where possible, in tandem with the seasons.


Our retreat opens from 3PM on Sunday, 25 July 2021, and ends at 5.30PM on Tuesday, 27 July 2021.

About the Sessions

Embodied Mindful Movement

Embodied mindful movement specialises in the foundational, mindful understanding of body mechanics so that one can find the rhythm in all movements – deepening body awareness, connecting to feeling and developing an intelligent self practice of conscious movement, leading one perfectly into stillness. The retreat sessions will be held against the immersive beats of live hand instruments and specially curated music, varying around themes of Release, Alignment, Trust, Inviting in and Inspiration.

Active Meditations

These are structured meditation methods that consciously bring the practitioner from the periphery to the centre of the storm – to that place of witnessing, where one can reside in awareness while all continues to exist around them. In this retreat, we will explore movement, sound and chakra meditations, in which we will actively cultivate body awareness as a means to enter the present moment.

A Day of Silence

For one day of the retreat, we will practice ‘mouna’, the art of maintaining silence. When we participate in somatic (body) experiences, particularly while holding a space of silence, often insights, reflections and memories will surface — all a part of our unfolding. Journaling and self-reflection sessions will allow you to sit with them and allow the process to unfold gently in your hands, knowing that these moments of taking pause are instrumental in connecting to your Self.

Crystal Bowls Sound Healing

Sound healing works wonders for one's mental processes, muscles, nervous system, digestive system and circulatory system by attuning the resonances of an instrument to the specific vibrational frequencies found within the human body. Sessions start with light movement in a seated position, and follows with a “sound bath” where participants lay back and allow the notes of eight alchemy crystal singing bowls to penetrate cells and rebalance them through oscillation and resonance.

Interactive Journeys

We will create ceremonial spaces with guided discussions and opportunities to connect with one another, to set and release intentions and consecrate transitions for starting and ending this profound process together. These sessions can gently help process a collective understanding and provide you with communicative tools for you to integrate and assimilate the retreat experience back into your daily life.

Myrtu Death Meditation

Myrtu (Death) is a profound, gentle meditation session on the art of letting go, non-attachment and witnessing consciousness. In this session, we will lie down and experience a metaphorical journey of connecting to our infinite consciousness as we de-identify with the impermanence of the body. This beautiful meditation is guided.
