this space brings together 5 unique ingredients to create magical and life-changing, personal transformation
Each retreat will break out into groups focussed on specialist areas. These normally include addiction, depression, anxiety and overthinking, illness and pain, the search for purpose, spirituality, partners and relationships.
What you experience here will transform you
This retreat is not all about talks and teaching or sitting silently alone. No, this place is filled with experiences. Social gatherings, and cookouts will meet altered states of consciousness. New practices and connection will meet a new way to see and interact with the world. You're free for the first time, let's learn to enjoy it without rules or limitation. Our experiences usually include :
Presence and advanced presence with Zazen
Shamanic drumming, sound activation and healing
Group firepits and cookouts
Firepit ceremonies, ecstatic dance, karaoke and more
Lamplight processions and lake swimming
Yoga nedra and altered state access
Shamanic breathing and enlightenment
Sustainable growing and permaculture
Cinema nights and bar parties
All masterclass talks, teachings and coaching.
Optional additional activities, subject to availability
Fire walking and challenges
Ice baths and cold water experiences
Enlightenment teaching and experiences
When our ideas, thoughts and expectations are challenged we realise it is the mind and what we "think" we need, want or should fear and avoid that stands between where we are and the freedom we seek.
Outside our comfort zone, where we realise that what we have come to believe limits us, we find freedom
Zen Jungle Masterclass.
Transformative learning that changes everything, forever.
It's the basis of all talks, teaching, one-on-one coaching, practices and specialist workshops
The mind is the most powerful thing on the planet but we were never taught to use it. The Zen Jungle masterclass changes that at the deepest level, and with it, so many lives for the better.
Our retreat exists to free every guest from the chaos inside and out. Our transformational programs do that in just 7 to 14 days, and we take pride in that this really works.
That's why every transformational retreat guest also has free access to the online course from the point of booking, well before arrival. We recommend you partner it with the book, kindle or audiobook and arrive at the retreat as familiar as possible with the content.
The retreat will quickly consolidate your learning, make it fully actionable and take you on a journey that will change your life completely. As it does, you'll be able to share your stories of transformation with the other like-minded people you meet here. Together you will take a journey to a whole new state of being.
Our format of talks and teaching is tailored each week to suit the specific needs of the group but coverage always includes the following :
Conceptual, idea based identity and true self
Judgement, preferences and acceptance
Blame, guilt and forgiveness
Arriving at zero thought, zero idea and a quiet mind
The end of overthinking, anxiety or fear.
Permanent presence and raising your consciousness
Ego, the search engine of experience
Dissolving ego and every limiting belief, the real magic
Integration. Truth, ideas and the illusion
New relationships, independence and acceptance
Connection, flow and harnessing intuition
Experiencing altered states and enlightenment
Your retreat will unlock a new and beautiful world, visible for the first time. It will awaken you to a life you can deeply love and enjoy, with blissful peace and life-long happiness and freedom. The masterclass enables that portal.
As we remove what fuels our thoughts, silence of the mind is revealed. It's the only route to true and permanent peace and brings freedom for the first time.
The retreat is founded on the Zen Jungle Holistic Masterclass in how to truly love life. All talks, teaching, coaching and group sessions proven to change lives, no matter what complexities you may feel you have.
If feeling better, finding peace or experiencing true freedom and life-long happiness is your aim, then our transformations were made for you.
This is change you can action.

Experiences are at the heart of every retreat. They are immersive, exciting, challenging and revealing.
All help raise your consciousness, from lamplit processions to shamanic drumming and breathing, yoga nedra, sound ceremonies and cookouts by the firepit to ecstatic dance.
Everything works together here to deepen your intuitive connection and create fundamental change.

Everything is made from sustainable ,natural materials and each cabin is self contained with either one or two double bedrooms, bathroom, fully fitted kitchen and lounge. The vibe is cosy and sumptuos, rustic boho. It really is the comfort zone.
Personal transformation can be a lonely business. For most, it includes lots of searching, isolation and huge changes in social life and circles.
The great news is that everyone here is just like you. They have all taken action to to change how they feel and explore a whole new perspective.
Whether with team or guests, your conversations here will excite you and always take you forward.

As you spend time in a community of like minded people, all learning new ways to both be and think, you will slowly heal, connect and find the power of deeper consciousness.
