Join this unique self-leadership retreat to uncover your “golden thread”, your true passion and purpose, and start living from a place of heart-centred authenticity.


Cultivating self-leadership and finding our true passion, purpose, and path in life can be a real challenge, especially in today’s rapidly changing world. As life evolves quickly around us, it’s easy to feel stuck in the same place or overwhelmed by the seemingly endless choices available. Many times we do not know how to handle strong emotions, anxiety, or the need for more rest. Often, we know what we want from life but don’t know how to get there: unsure of which steps to take next or the right questions to ask ourselves. This unique retreat is designed to support your quest towards authentic self-leadership: you’ll get clear on what matters to you most, find out what’s holding you back, and embark on a deep and joyful journey to discover who you really are.

our values


We help people discover what works for them and support them to develop their own approaches to work and life.


We believe in being our authentic selves: for us this means living our strengths and embracing our weaknesses.


We’re committed to a path of continuous learning and growth, and we’ll share our insights and experiences with you through our work.


We value open hearts as well as open minds and explore the spaces where both can be free to thrive.


We celebrate diversity and respect the unique individuality of each person.


We aim to serve a higher purpose through our work: bringing more peace into a turbulent world, more heart into work, and more brightness and meaning into life.


In Zen we practice something called “beginner’s mind”, which refers to an attitude of openness, eagerness, and a lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, just as a beginner would. This retreat is open to anyone willing to dive deeply into themselves, and no previous experience is necessary. We simply invite you to bring your beginner’s mind!

Each one of us has a unique purpose in life. When we discover it, life ceases to be a struggle as even potential obstacles can be transformed into welcome challenges or nuggets of gold, there only to show us new opportunities for growth.

We highly value time and space for self-reflection and integration, so the answer is YES! Since this retreat takes place at a beautiful location, you’ll be encouraged to really connect with the surrounding nature and let yourself be nurtured by the elements.

Our retreat program is designed to let the different experiences sink into each cell of your body so you can deeply integrate and embody them. We’ll work on questioning old belief patterns, reprogramming your system, and going for your heart’s truest calling. You’ll leave with answers to some important life questions, gain support and inspiration from other people in the group, and receive practical tools and insights so that you can start making your dreams a reality.
