Regenerative Health Retreat

Restore the connection between your mind/body/spirit and learn how nature reveals a clear path to perfect health. Our four-day regenerative health retreat at Bobbejaanskloof integrates psychology, biology, and ecology to inform transformation on all levels – using nature as a reference and guide to The Self.

The retreat includes daily practises to connect with ourselves, and with nature, in a profound and meaningful way. We will do daily yoga and meditation as well as receiving a forest bathing ceremony and massage or kinesiology. These holistic practises work together with the philosophical teachings to create a deep, sustained understanding of our fundamental connection to nature and how we may use that connection to guide the way we walk through our lives.
