Why this Retreat?

Despite technological advancements, the modern society is becoming increasingly stressful, isolated, and miserable. The Australian Bureau of Statistics report that more than half of all Australians meet the criteria for a diagnosis of a mental disorder at some point in their lives. Each year, one in five Australian will experience some sort of mental illness. Some of the common conditions include – anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issue, workplace stress, eating disorder, substance abuse, and so on.

You live in a world where it is perhaps easier now to live longer, but harder to stay calm and be happy. You might feel that despite your best intentions and efforts, the gaps between the hopes for yourself and the realities of your life diverge painfully.

We exist in a world where our lives are often punctuated by stressors and most people do not possess the necessary coping skills to be resilient and have a meaningful, functional, and happy life.

The stress that inevitably emanates from this coupled with your personal challenges concoct a recipe for an unhappy, dysfunctional, and stressful life.

It is, therefore, imperative to probe away at our notions of what it is that we really want out of our lives. It is critical and non-negotiable to invest in mental health by developing a value-driven and resilient psyché – one that will help you remain calm, content, and happy, even in the face of adversity.

With this in mind, we developed this Himalayan Retreat – which provides a space for reflection and an opportunity to learn crucial life skills that will enhance your mental health and well-being.

Check out this amazing Himalayan Retreat – perfect if you wish to reduce stress, improve performance, and enhance wellbeing!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Retreat?

Retreat is usually a quiet and private place when one can relax the body and rejuvenate the mind.

How will this retreat benefit me?

This retreat will allow you the space to focus on personal development, learn how to reduce stress, and meet your professional goals, whilst simultaneously learning crucial life skills in a private and relaxing environment. All our sessions have been engineered with evidence-based and cutting-edge scientific practices. We combine lessons from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and behavioural economics to bring the best sessions to you!

Will I require a passport and/or visa?

Yes, you will require a valid passport to travel to another country. Depending on the Country of Issue of your passport, you may also require a valid visa. We will cover this in our ‘Meet & Greet’ session. You should also check passport and visa requirements at your local Embassy or Consulate before scheduled travel.

Can I bring my partner or friends along?

The sessions at our retreat tend to be of private nature where we encourage personal growth and development. And so, we usually insist that you take up this journey on your own. Having said that, we would be happy to look at your situation and advise a best course of action.

Can I do a group booking?

Yes absolutely! Please complete the form here and mention that you would like a group booking under the “Tell us about yourself” section. Please ensure that you provide as much detail about the group as you can. Please complete the rest of the form with your details as a primary participant. We will be in touch with you to seek additional information.

How can I reserve a spot?

It’s very easy! Simply complete the form here to express your interest.

Do you provide refunds?

Given the nature of our retreat, we tend to make arrangements very far in advance and liaise with a number of third-party providers to ensure that our participants get the absolute best experience. Due to this, we are unable to provide refunds and hence encourage people to browse this page thoroughly.

Can I ask a question that is not covered here, before I reserve my spot?

Absolutely! Please complete the form here and include your question under the “Tell us about yourself” section.

Will these sessions replace therapy sessions I have with my counsellor?

This retreat will offer you an opportunity to find respite from your busy and hectic life. It will not only afford you the space to immerse yourself in introspection, but also amass crucial life skills that will equip you to navigate adversities in life. Although it is plausible for you and the group to contemplate and discuss psycho-existential concerns as part of this journey, this retreat is not meant to be group therapy or substitute for any form of psychological, counselling, or therapy sessions. While counselling sessions often focus on one topic, our canvas is much larger and we focus on your overall performance and wellbeing.
