Day 1 – You will be met at Johannesburg International Airport and overnight at Tsogo Sun Hotel to rest after your international flight.

Day 2 – Transfer to Gondwana Private Game Lodge in the Makalali Conservancy.  Gondwana is in a dramatic bushveld setting with tall trees   overlooking   a waterway that wends its way into the distance. The calmness of the lodge is immediately noticeable and a perfect setting for our retreat. It is here that we rekindle connection to nature. An orientation by Audrey precedes an early evening Game drive followed by dinner to round off the first day of the retreat.

Days 3, 4 and 5 – During the next 3 days we venture further into the journey of allowing the “human” to integrate with “essence” in a melding of harmony and stability.

Guided inspiring meditation journeys will take you further into experiencing your multi-dimensional being-ness and the realization of the true self.

It is without “effort” or “work” , yet simply “allowing” that we approach our true selves and realize the magnificence that we are.

NOW it is time for us to blossom, to expand and to live our full potential in all ways. The human will still play around in polarity here and there and at the same time will expand into the AND.  We realize that we are both human and divine, true nature and it is here that we can let go of the so-called idea of “perfecting” ourselves, striving, pushing and trying to “fix” all of the illusions.

Together we will explore this field and our own uniqueness in it. There is no religion involved nor is there a so-called new age approach. We allow it to unfold as it is called forth by our true nature. Life is a celebration and such a joy when sharing this together!


Throughout this retreat we offer you total freedom to do and be as you please. There will be opportunity to attend inspired meditations to lead you within as well as personal guidance if you so wish.

Game drives are included daily if you feel like joining them and we will include a Solitude Walk – where we walk a good distance apart in silence then gather for a meditation to the sounds of the bush.

All meals and drinks are included and dietary requirements are catered for by the excellent chefs at Gondwana.


Day 6 – We depart Gondwana Lodge and transfer via the scenic Panorama Route to the top of the Drakensberg mountain range stopping at the 3 Rondaels, The Potholes, God’s Window and Graskop en routes to Summerfields Rose & Retreat Spa.

After check-in we have a group sharing followed by dinner.
